Our country has taken great strides in the field of software. Many products and software are built in India for use in India and abroad. We are dependent mostly on outside sources for the hardware though. There are very few computing device manufacturing houses in India and this has result in volatile costs of the devices depending on the currency value fluctuations. Further the skill required service these devices are not commonly available in the country. This hinders the penetration of the digitalization through the country. The end of the hour is to built access devices with smart solutions.
Forstar’s mission addresses these gaps by manufacturing the computing devices indigenously. Since the devices are manufactured locally, availability and prices can be managed. Through this process skill in hardware manufacture and service increases. The company’s mission is also to improve skill and employment options for the younger generation of the country.
FTSPL, in technology industry, have entered in a new cycle of technology innovation and growth, which we are calling ‘Smart Computing’. Nowadays computing devices have become smaller, more mobile, and smarter. In order to achieve the objectives of smart computing, advanced technologies are importantly required and thus, grow quickly. Smart computing provides more human-like thinking solutions.
The areas of current interest of Smart Computing include the following:
- Smart devices
- Smartphone apps
- Smart wireless/mobile computing and communications
- Smart mobile operating systems
- Internet of Things
- Smart sensors/bio-sensors
- Smart consumer electronics
- Smart multimedia
