Why it is the right time to adopt to ECommerce?


  • Ecommerce (electronic commerce or EC) is the buying and selling of goods and services, or the transmitting of funds or data, over an electronic network, primarily the Internet. These business transactions occur either business-to-business, business-to-consumer, consumer-to-consumer or consumer-to-business.
  • E-commerce is conducted using a variety of applications, such as email, fax, online catalogues and shopping carts, Electronic Data Interchange(EDI), File Transfer Protocol, and Web services. Most of this is business-to-business, with some companies attempting to use email and fax for unsolicited ads (usually viewed as spam) to consumers and other business prospects, as well as to send out e-newsletters to subscribers.
  • We must have many questions to Why to adopt E commerce, What is the benefit? So let’s talk about benefits to your organisation and to your customers.

  • Robotium is one the first and frequently utilized automated testing tools for software supported on Android.
  • Robotium is a free Android UI testing tool. It is suitable for tests automation for different Android versions and sub-versions. Software developers often describe it as Selenium for Android. Tests created by Robotium are written in Java. In fact, Robotium is a library for unit tests.
  • But it takes much time and efforts to create tests by means of Robotium, as one must work with the program source code in order to automate tests. The tool is also unsuitable for interaction with system software; it cannot lock and unlock a smartphone or a tablet. There is no Record and Play function in Robotium, and it does not provide screenshots.


  • MonkeyRunner is one of popular Android Testing tools used for automating of functional tests for Android software.
  • This tool is more low-level than Robotium is. One does not have to deal with the source code in order to automate tests. The tests are written in Python, one may use a recording tool for creating tests.
  • MonkeyRunner can run tests on real devices connected to a PC or emulators. The tool has an API what allows it to control a smartphone, a tablet or an emulator from outside of Android code.
  • Significant disadvantage of the mobile app testing tool is that it is necessary to write scripts for each device. Another problem of MonkeyRunner is that the tests require adjustments each time when user interface of the tested program is changed.
  • Ranorex Android Application Testing Tool

download (30)

  • Ranorex is a good tool for tests automation not only for the latest, but also for early versions and sub-versions of Android, beginning from Android 2.2.
  • One of Ranorex advantages is its detailed reports with screenshots. It can connect a smartphone or a tablet to Internet via WiFi.
  • An automated test engineer can elaborate data-driven tests, excluding XML data format, by means of this Android tool. Ranorex Studio enables an automated test engineer to create tests easily, just clicking the mouse. It allows elaborating additional program modules. The modules may be utilized during late development cycles for more complex test scenarios.’
  • Appium Android Automation Framework


  • It’s a framework for creation automated tests for iOS and Android. It is a free tool. It supports Android versions from 2.3 and later. Appium utilizes WebDriver interface for tests running. It supports many programming languages, such as Java, C#, Ruby and other which are in the WebDriver library.
  • It can control Safari and Chrome on mobile devices. This allows to test mobile web sites using Appium and these browsers.
  • But some automated test engineers complain that it provides poor, insufficient reports. Also its weakness is reduced XPath support on mobile devices

download (31)

  • This tool has been recently elaborated by Google. It supports Android versions beginning from 4.1. One should select another Android app testing tool in order to automate tests for earlier versions. UI Automator is able to interact with all kinds of software products for Android, including system applications. This enables UI Automator to lock and unlock a smartphone or a tablet.
  • Scripts created by means of this tool can be executed on many different Android platforms. It allows reproducing complex sequences of user actions.
  • UI Automator also can utilize external buttons of a device, such as buttons for going back, volume regulation, turning on and off the device.
  • It can be integrated with testing framework TestNG. In this case UI Automator can generate informative and detailed reports, similar to reports generated by Ranorex. This tool also searches elements very fast.

  • Tests automation is a complex task. It requires thorough preparation and researches. One should also keep up with all the novelties in information technology, applications and test automation tools. All this knowledge is necessary for creating the most effective tests.

Adopt Omni Channel for your Business Growth

download (4)

The term “omni-channel” may be a marketing buzzword, but it refers to a significant shift: marketers now need to provide a seamless experience, regardless of channel or device. Consumers can now engage with a company in a physical store, on an online website or mobile app, through a catalog, or through social media. They can access products and services by calling a company on the phone, by using an app on their mobile smartphone, or with a tablet, a laptop, or a desktop computer. Each piece of the consumer’s experience should be consistent and complementary.We can now measure success in terms of the response of real people over time, in addition to measuring individual campaigns.  We have enough data at the customer level to see how she interacts both online and in the store, so we can tailor messaging and offers to her appropriately by channel. We strive to balance the use of customer data to inform content relevancy with the use of consumer insights to ensure that the relevancy is coupled with a sense of discovery and inspiration.
  • Success is a good thing. Sometimes, however, surges in orders and sales cause headaches for e-commerce companies.
  • The key is to expect the unexpected. Planning ahead can help ensure that sales spikes are handled as smoothly as possible.
  • Know Your Busy Times

download (26)

  • Many companies can predict when their busy periods will be, allowing them to plan ahead.
  • It’s all hands on deck during the holidays to get all the lovely packages and gifts to customers doorsteps seamlessly. We make sure to stock up on all the packaging supplies and stay in constant communication with the local post office to avoid any last-minute hiccups. Holidays are busy periods for Veltrod. Think about the holidays that are specific to your business, and plan for increased sales around those times.
  • In addition to holidays, evenings and weekends can be a surge time for some businesses.Planning for busy times isn’t an exact science, but it’s worth doing the best you can with the information that’s available.Planning can be difficult, since each year can be very different, but we always have a backup. So if data says we need only two part-timers at Christmas and 10 cases of x inventory, I make sure I have a plan for four part-timers and the ability to receive 10 more cases if needed. You always have to think ahead and have plans laid out for the alternative path.
  • Get Your System Ready
  • One thing e-commerce businesses can do to prepare for sales surges is to make sure their ordering and fulfillment system is up to date, customer friendly, and able to handle the inevitable boom times.Making sure stock is available, or that customers are aware when it isn’t, is vital to a successful strategy. Streamlining and automating systems can take time away from other areas of the business, but it’s worth the investment in the long run.
  • Focus on Customer Service
  • Companies can lose sight of individual customers during a sales rush, but providing excellent customer service is vital during such periods.Above all, make sure your business has in place strategies to help owners and employees cope with the stress of success.Above all, make sure your business has in place strategies to help owners and employees cope with the stress of success.

Let the Game Begin

download (17)

  • Start small, and be ready to fail
  • Before you get too excited, please realize that, as with any other skill, learning how to design and develop games takes time and practice. Your first game won’t look like the polished games you’re used to playing, much like your first drawing won’t come out looking like Monet. This is absolutely fine. My first game has a huge bug in it that causes it to break for about half of its users. I was unable to figure out how to fix it.
  • Also pay attention to things like:
    • How they promote social sharing
    • Player tutorials
    • Beautiful graphics
    • Fun subplots
    • A gameplay map so players can measure progress
    • Action and movement during game play.

Original Ideas with Copied Gaming Logic (Beware)

Be sure that you are not straight up copying another idea without realizing it.  If you have played a lot of video games over the years, it may be easy to mix and mingle other ideas that have already been done. Try to be creative and think outside of the box. Also make sure your idea isn’t so complex that the Average person couldn’t play the game. You want something with mass market appeal and not a game that only rocket scientists can play.

  • Choose your tools
  • So you have your idea, distilled down into a manageable, simple game. Now what? This is where those tools I mentioned come into play. There are an enormous variety of them, and more are being created all the time. This guide is primarily for those who have absolutely no computer science skills, have never programmed anything in their life and think that it’s beyond their ability to do so
  • Get some graphics. Get some sounds.
  • If you’re worried about coming up with art assets, music, sound, and other things that make your game more polished, don’t worry.The tools which you are using will have options along with that you can take suggestions from the people who have done it earlier.
  • Find an honest person to play your game. Observe this brave individual.
  • So you’ve prototyped your first game—now what? Share it! You can learn so much about the design of your game by sitting down someone who hasn’t played it—and ideally isn’t a relative or significant other—and having them play your game. See what they instinctively do, what they understand and what they don’t. Get as many people to play your game as you can, and try to find out what worked and what didn’t. Then, iterate on your design as much as possible.
  • Do all of this again, and you’ll probably do it better.
  • Finish your game, then make another.

That’s how it’s done!

It’s not easy obviously, but this checklist will give you the roadmap that you can use to understand the development process.

Know Veltrod’s IoT Stratergies


  • The Internet of Things (IoT) allows us to use technology to enhance our comfort, improve our energy efficiency, simplify the tasks that consume our home and work life and give us greater control over our lives. Silicon Labs is increasingly able to deliver the basic building blocks that power the IoT.
  • A Connected Home can mean different things to different people, but it’s essentially a home with one or more (or many) devices connected together in a way that allows the homeowner to control, customize and monitor their environment.
images (9)
  • That can mean anything from a programmable learning thermostat to a security system of window, door and motion sensors, to the future of smart appliances. The common denominator is that ideally all of these devices should come together into a connected ecosystem that is easy for the homeowner to access and control. If the IoT is fundamentally about making our lives easier and more connected, then the implications for a truly Connected Home are game-changing.
  • Wearable technology is a blanket term that covers a vast array of devices that monitor, record and provide feedback on you or your environment. Broadly speaking, you can divide wearables along two lines:
  1. Fitness and Environment: Fitness bands and watches and even smart clothes are able to monitor and transmit data on your daily activity levels through step counting, heart rate and temperature.
  2. Health: These wearables monitor crucial health factors like oxygen saturation, heart rate and more, and can communicate any results outside of a programmed range to the patient and to her physician.


  • The Internet of Things has profound implications for industrial automation and the industrial internet of things. With wireless connectivity, advanced sensor networks, machine-to-machine communications, traditional industrial automation will become more informed and more efficient than ever before.
  • smart meter is an internet-capable device that measures energy, water or natural gas consumption of a building or home.
  • With Smart Energy Metering, not only do technicians not have to come and physically read your meter, you have access personally to your energy usage so you can see what impact your consumption patterns have on your wallet and on the environment.

Veltrod IoT Strategies


Entering the fray, however, should not be undertaken lightly. The IoT market’s newness and heterogeneity will make it difficult to negotiate, even by those companies with the strongest capabilities and the clearest, most compelling value propositions.

To develop a strategy for the IoT, Veltrod proceeds

by addressing, in order:

1. Our own role in the IoT.

Given our existing value proposition and capabilities,we see that, are we best suited to be an Enabler, Engager, or Enhancer?

2. Industries and markets.

We assess how our business environment is being (or could be) transformed by the IoT. We see that, what sense do we have of the demand for market? The more IoT activity that already exists in our industry, as it does in  automotive, manufacturing, and home-related sectors, the more rapidly we have to move.

3. Customer or business engagement.

Because value in the IoT will be created through the transformation of customer experience, we need strong capabilities in experience design. The IoT could eventually transform the business. What capabilities do we already have in this area, and what will we need to develop? should be the question in our mind.

4. Connected products and services.

We assess our current lineup of offerings to determine which can be enhanced through IoT connectivity, and what new ones could be developed expressly for the IoT. For new launches and innovations, take into account how connectivity will be established, how our company will analyze and use the resulting data, and which other companies we might collaborate with—all set against the proposed revenue model and income stream.

5. An enhanced connection.

Most Engagers will deploy an initial wave of basic connected devices and services. Then they will build further services by using analytics to gain insights from the wealth of new data that the IoT provides them. As these deployments unfold, Engagers will look for ways to increase value. This is where Enhancers will come in. What new business models might emerge? Would we want to develop any of them, or do we want to partner with other companies that can help serve this need?

6. Our organization’s capabilities.

Our company will need to distinguish itself in this space. What will we do that no other company does as well (or at all)? What improvements and investments will we need to make? Where will the necessary time, money, and attention come from; what activities will we need to divest or downplay so their resources can move here?

  • After reviewing every tool that was included in BackTrack, we eliminated a great number of tools that either simply did not work or which duplicated other tools that provided the same or similar functionality. Details on what’s included are on the Kali Tools site.

download (3)

  • Kali Linux, like BackTrack, is completely free of charge and always will be. You will never, ever have to pay for Kali Linux.
  • We are committed to the open source development model and ourdevelopment tree is available for all to see. All of the source code which goes into Kali Linux is available for anyone who wants to tweak or rebuild packages to suit their specific needs.
  • Kali adheres to the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard, allowing Linux users to easily locate binaries, support files, libraries, etc.
  • A regular sticking point with Linux distributions has been supported for wireless interfaces. We have built Kali Linux to support as many wireless devices as we possibly can, allowing it to run properly on a wide variety of hardware and making it compatible with numerous USB and other wireless devices.
  • The Kali Linux team is made up of a small group of individuals who are the only ones trusted to commit packages and interact with the repositories, all of which is done using multiple secure protocols.Every package in Kali Linux is signed by each individual developer who built and committed it, and the repositories subsequently sign the packages as well.
  •  Although penetration tools tend to be written in English, we have ensured that Kali includes true multilingual support, allowing more users to operate in their native language and locate the tools they need for the job.
  •  Since ARM-based single-board systems like the Raspberry Pi and BeagleBone Black, among others, are becoming more and more prevalent and inexpensive, we knew that Kali’s ARM support would need to be as robust as we could manage, with fully working installations for both ARMEL and ARMHF systems. Kali Linux is available on a wide range of ARM devices and has ARM repositories integrated with the mainline distribution so tools for ARM are updated in conjunction with the rest of the distribution.

Social Media Marketing Tips

  • Would you like to improve your social media marketing?
  • Are you up to date with the best social media tips and tools?
  • Mine Twitter to Grow Your Audience


  • Here are three easy but overlooked tactics you can use to build an audience on Twitter, which is arguably the best platform for this.While “if you build it they will come” is a great line from a movie, it’s a terrible marketing plan. To succeed on the Internet today, you have to create content that ignites and engages an audience. However, if you are a new blogger, you should probably spend more time developing an audience than creating your content.
  • There are many apps to help you find new followers, but one of my favorite places to find targeted followers is Twellow. This useful and free site is like the yellow pages for Twitter, and you can find and follow targeted users for every category, industry and interest imaginable.
  • Use specialized Twitter search prompts. Unlock the basic search functionality right on the Twitter screen by learning a few of the specialized prompts.

  • Visual content can act as a “gateway” to more valuable content. When planning visual content to post on social platforms, think in terms of how it can drive traffic back to your website, products and services.
  • For example, in this SlideShare deck Constant Contact included a link back to a resource page listing multiple blog posts with related content.

download (6)

  • Over the past two years, I’ve moved to adapt written content for multiple platforms, like YouTube, to increase my reach and visibility.
  • For example, by turning one of my List25 articles into video every week, I’ve grown the YouTube channel to 1.3 million subscribers and amassed over 200 million video views. A similar tactic with WPBeginner articles has grown subscribers to over 8,000, and the channel has increased sales for my WordPress plugins.
  • If you want to be successful with your social media plan, stop random acts of hashtagging and use a good hashtag to tie all of the pieces of your campaign together.
  • Use a hashtag that is easy to spell and easy to remember. To make sure your hashtag isn’t already being used for something else, check for it on all channels prior to using it for your campaign. Once you create your hashtag, follow and join the conversation!

  • How much time do you spend crafting blog posts? Sending emails? Sitting in meetings?
  • Even if you have a good idea of where you’re spending the bulk of your time, you may often feel there simply aren’t enough hours in your day. Getting a handle on time management is a huge challenge for business owners.

  • Take advantage of the free content publishing feature on LinkedIn called Publisher. It can increase your exposure to your target audience and help build your credibility as an expert in your industry. In fact, LinkedIn Publisher can greatly expand the reach of your business on LinkedIn, regardless of your network’s size.


  • It takes a lot of time and effort to attract visitors to your website. When you do attract relevant visitors, it’s important to maximize the potential of that visit even after they leave your website.
  • There are now great retargeting options where you can follow your website visitors to other sites like Twitter and Facebook, and encourage them to take further action.
  • For example, to target your website visitors on Facebook, display “page like” ads and encourage them to become fans. This currently costs us 15 cents per fan. In return, we get a relevant fan and another place to reach our audience.

How to root your Android?

download (4)

  • Android is one of the most open, versatile, and customizable mobile operating systems out there. You may think you don’t need to root your phone, but you’d be surprised at how much more you can accomplish with a little work.
  • Sometimes, even Android isn’t open enough to give you some of the features you want. Either an app is blocked by carriers, hacks into Android’s system files, or otherwise isn’t available. Luckily, rooting can help with that: you can install carrier-blocked apps, get features from the latest version of Android,make incompatible apps compatible, power up your hardware, get features like Beats Audio from other phones, or emulate exclusive features like those on the Moto X. Whatever you want, rooting gives you the power to do a lot more.
  • You can do a lot of things to speed up your phone and boost its battery lifewithout rooting, but with root—as always—you have even more power. For example, with an app like SetCPU you can overclock your phone for better performance, or underclock it for better battery life. You can also use an app like Greenify to automatically hibernate apps you aren’t using—perfect for those apps that always want to run in the background when you’re not looking.

  • You can do a lot of things to speed up your phone and boost its battery life without rooting, but with root—as always—you have even more power. For example, with an app like SetCPU you can overclock your phone for better performance, or underclock it for better battery life. You can also use an app like Greenify to automatically hibernate apps you aren’t using—perfect for those apps that always want to run in the background when you’re not looking.

  • If you’re the kind of person that likes to fiddle with every little feature—both on the surface and under the hood—rooting is for you. Whether you want to customize your keyboard layout with something like Keyboard Manager or give yourself faster scrolling, improved multitasking, and extra themes with Pimp My ROM, rooting gives you the power to tweak just about any corner you can think of. If you want to do it, chances are someone over on a forum like XDA has created a mini-app or tweak that will help.


  • In the end, all of this boils down to one thing: you own your device, and you should be able to do with it as you please. Certain manufacturers and carriers try to keep that from happening, but with root access, you truly own your device and open yourself up to all the possibilities other parties try to block. Sure, there’s some risk involved, and we don’t usually recommend rooting other people’s phones, but in the end, you can’t put a price on true openness.

How Cyanogen OS different from Android


  • Then there’s Cyanogen OS. It’s not always easy to describe where this version of Android fits into the ecosystem, but to help simplify things we’ve put together this introduction to the things that make this flavor unique. Each of the major smartphone manufacturers have their own fork of Android, complete with features and user interfaces unique to the devices they manufacture and sell.
  • As far as most folks are aware, Android begins with the Open Source project Google maintains, receives some secret sauce from the processor manufacturers, and goes off to the manufacturers for the rest of the software modifications that lead to HTC Sense, Samsung Touchwiz, and others. Cyanogen OS is built in a similar fashion, taking the version of Android anyone can build for themselves and adding in what they feel are software enhancements to improve the overall experience.
  • While you’ll usually only find Sense UI on HTC devices and Touchwiz on Samsung devices, Cyanogen is an independent company that has built their own flavor of Android and offers it to manufacturers to load on their phones. This means Cyanogen is responsible for things like adding features, fixing bugs, and supporting whatever hardware the manufacturer has put together.


  • Unless you’ve gone and built Android yourself from the Android Open Source Project, side-loaded it onto your device, and cherry picked the apps and features you want yourself, there’s a good chance your phone includes software you have no intention of ever using. For the most part, these apps and features get called “bloatware” by the community, which can mean anything from the apps Google includes in every device running Play Services to those horrible trial games and antivirus apps you find loaded on mobile carrier-supported phones.
  • One of the first things you notice about powering up a Cyanogen OS device is the lockscreen, which is a little different from other Android devices you may have used. The way the lockscreen interacts with notifications is similar enough to other offerings that there’s little need to re-learn how to use anything, but the visual flourishes create an appealing glance experience.


  • Even with the screen off, Cyanogen OS has several gestures that can be drawn on the display to activate features. For example, you can trace a “V” on the display to activate the flash on the back of the phone to act as a flashlight. You can also draw a circle to quickly access the camera, and swiping gestures are in place for quick music changes.

  • The Cyanogen OS theme engine gives users control over the navigation buttons, lock screen, notification draw, system fonts, and a ton more. Their options can be installed as a whole theme, or cherry picked to deliver the ideal experience for the individual. It’s also growing at a rapid pace, due largely to the community-driven efforts from the Cyanogen team.
