About Communication and Computing Standards
A benchmark / criterion / yardstick, as approved by a recognized standards organization, is accepted as a de facto standard by the industry as it helps in mobility / portability of components / interfaces developed by different industries. Establishment of standards also helps each industry to specialize / concentrate on particular aspect / module of a system by avoiding / reducing duplication effort. Without standards, only hardware and software from the same company could have be used together. Standards exist for programming languages, operating systems, data formats, communication protocols, and electrical interfaces. Standards, from a user's standpoint, are extremely important in the computer industry because they allow the combination of products from different manufacturers to create a customized system. In addition, standard user interfaces can make it much easier to learn how to use new applications. Most official computer standards are set by organizations such as ANSI (American National Standards Institute), ITU (International Telecommunication Union), IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers), ISO (International Standards Organization) and VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association).
IEEE sets standards for most types of electrical interfaces. Its most famous standard is probably RS-232C, which defines an interface for serial communication. This is the interface used by most modems, and a number of other devices, including display screens and mice. IEEE is also responsible for designing floating-point data formats. While IEEE is generally concerned with hardware, ANSI is primarily concerned with software. ANSI has defined standards for a number of programming languages, including C, COBOL and FORTRAN. ITU defines international standards, particularly communications protocols such as V.22, V.32, V.34 and V.42 for transmitting data over telephone lines.
Despite the growing importance of these standards to a very large community of computer system builders and users, the standards-making process is not widely understood. It has a language of its own and its metabolism is extremely confusing to those who are not actively involved. These reports are motivated by the belief that better standards - timelier, more relevant, and closer to the state of the art - will result from a more widely informed community of interest. Experts would enlighten the audience about the standards used in some of communication and computing products in this convention.
About Board for IT Education Standards (BITES)
BITES is an autonomous body promoted by Government in association with Institutions and industries in Karnataka in the year 2000. GoK has setup BITES with the intent of maintaining high standards and quality in IT education. The main objectives of BITES are to enhance the quality of IT Education and improve the employability of Engineering Graduates. The Vision of BITES is "To establish Karnataka as the acknowledged leader in Information Technology by fostering high quality industry-relevant IT education". The key activity areas of BITES are: Advice on Policy, Challenge / Competitions and Awards, Curriculum Development, Databases, Industry–Institute Interaction, Institutional Development, IT Education Standards and Leadership Development. BITES promotes, encourages, and deep dives into industry-academia equations on a number of platforms. It is this equation which will differentiate Winners from Losers. This is more so because of the exponential changes and transformations taking place in the tech space. Industry relevance of education is the only mantra for survival in the TED-Age. BITES is the quintessential bridge to help in bringing together academia-industry and in setting benchmarks, in line with industry expectations. BITES is the way forward and partnering with it is imperative for every teaching institute, benefiting both the faculty and the student community.
