World Telecommunication and Information Society Day was organized on the Theme 2017: Big Data for Big Impact



Royal Global University organized ‘World Telecommunications and Information Society Day’ where the constant evolution of one of the most important factors of our lives: communication was discussed. The main goal of World Telecommunications Day (WTD) is to highlight the importance of communication and how information travels across the world. It also aims to increase awareness of how crucial communication is in our lives, and stimulate the development of technologies in the field.
World Telecommunication Day was introduced to celebrate the founding of the International Telecommunication Union, which was founded on 17 May 1865. It was instituted by and during the Conference in Malaga-Torremolinos in 1973. The main objective of the day is to raise global awareness of social changes brought about by the Internet and new technologies. It also aims to help reduce the digital divide (gap between Computer Literates and Computer Illiterates).
In November 2006, the ITU Conference in Antalya, Turkey decided to merge and celebrate both events on 17 May as World Telecommunication and Information Society Day. The updated Resolution invites members to celebrate the day annually by organizing appropriate national programmes with a view to:
Ø  Stimulate reflection and exchanges of ideas on the theme adopted by the Council.
Ø  Debate on the various aspects of the theme with all partners in society.
“Big-data” is similar to “Small-data”, but bigger.
Having data bigger consequently requires different approaches:
Ø  Techniques
Ø  Tools, and
Ø  Architectures

Big Data Analytics for what? to solve New problems and old problems in a better way.
Now the question arose, What made Big Data requirement? The answer was Increased Data Volume, Increased Computational Need, Increased Analytical Need, Lowered Barrier to Entry and Success, Innovative Techniques and Cost Effectiveness. The key computing resources were Processing capability, Memory, Storage and Network. The techniques towards Big Data are Massive Parallelism, Huge Data Volumes Storage, Data Distribution, High-Speed Networks, High-Performance Computing, Task and Thread Management, Data Mining and Analytics, Data Retrieval, Machine Learning and Data Visualization.
Now the Big question is if Techniques existed for years to decades, then why has the topic Big Data become hot now? The reasons are More data are now being collected and stored, Open source software/code and Commodity (affordable and easy to obtain) hardware
The participating faculty members enthused, asked questions and concluded on a positive note of enlightening all, especially the trying times following ‘Ransomware’.
The main objective of the day was to raise global awareness of societal changes brought about by the Internet and new technologies. It also aims to help reduce the digital divide.

1 May celebrated world over in different manners was celebrated differently in Royal Global University too. Students and Management of Royal Global School(RGS) and Royal Global University(RGU) came together to appreciate and give salutations to the hard work and sincerity put in by the Support Staff in making this Royal Knowledge Park, a movement.
A cultural  program was organized on the 1st of May, 2017 by the members of the support staff showcasing their talents along with the students of RGU and RGS.  Drivers, Helpers, Peons, Child Care givers, Housekeepers and Technicians danced, sang and were given appreciation certificates for their devoted and unwavering assistance, without whom, nothing can function well. Through this program gratitude to the support staff was expressed for their invaluable help. Mrs. Anubha Goyal, the Principal of Royal Global School, addressed the gathering and conveyed her heartfelt appreciation. She acknowledged them and observed that the Drivers, Helpers, Peons, Child Care givers, Housekeepers and Technicians were like the clogs of a giant wheel without whom it would be difficult to run any institution. She also thanked the Management for coming up with this novel idea of celebrating Labour Day.

Prof (Dr.) S.P. Singh, Vice Chancellor, Royal Global University and Senior Vice President of Gyan Sagar Foundation stressed on the importance of dignity of labour and how they strive all day long to make our lives easier without us having the time to acknowledge their hard work. May Day celebrations is indeed the best way to convey gratitude for their hard work.

Shri A.K Pansari , Chairman of  Royal Global School and Chancellor of  Royal Global University in his speech highly appreciated the efforts of the Support Staff for the smooth functioning of the institutions. He further introduced a welfare fund for the helpers which will relieve them of their monetary burden in case of utmost emergency. And most importantly, he stressed that Every Person is Important and no job is small or big! Just as India was moving away from the culture of  ‘Very Important Person’ to ‘Every Person is Important’, Royal Knowledge Park celebrates this dictum for the second time.

This was followed by the distribution of Appreciation Awards to some of the Support Staff of both the institutions in recognition of their efficiency and persistence all throughout the year. A citation and a cash award were handed over to the awardees.
