Express News Service

BHOPAL: As many as 11 fully-vaccinated Indian Army officers, who were pursuing a certificate course in business management at the Indian Institute of Management (IIM-Indore) in Madhya Pradesh, have tested COVID positive in the last four days.

All these asymptomatic COVID-positive army officers have been isolated at the Military Hospital in the cantonment town Mhow in Indore district only. As many as 65 contacts of these infected officers have been traced and their samples were taken for testing.

While confirming the development, the Indore District COVID-19 Nodal Officer, Dr Amit Malakar told The New Indian Express that two of these officers had tested COVID positive three days back, while nine others tested positive for the same viral disease in the last 24 hours.

In total, 13 people tested COVID positive in the entire Indore district over the last 24 hours, out of which nine were Army officers, who were pursuing the short term certificate course in business management for the defence officers at IIM-Indore.

“Just after two of these officers tested COVID positive three days back, the IIM-Indore turned offline classes of that short term course into online mode. All their points of contact at the IIM-Indore have been found COVID negative,” Dr Malakar added.

In total 60 Army Officers from across the country were pursuing the six-months certificate course in business management for defence officers (CCBMDO) at IIM-I. This course is helpful for professional resettlement of short service commissioned Army officers post-retirement.

The Army officers were pursuing the course for the last two and half months and were staying at a secure facility in Rau town of Indore district.

In September, 30 Indian Army officers at the Army War College in cantonment town Mhow of Indore had tested positive for COVID-19. All of them also were fully vaccinated and asymptomatic for COVID.

In the second season, Samatha Akkineni was cast as the main villain, as she invaded the digital platform with Suparn S. Verma helms a portion of the season.

As much as the third season is concerned, fans need not worry as the showrunners of the popular series have already made a formal declaration that the third installment will make a comeback soon which means fans could see their favorite character Srikant Tiwari (Manoj Bajpayee) as the series return with new episodes.

This piece of an announcement made the fans hyped up as well as the viewers to see Manjo Bajpayee as he continues his mission in the next season. Read more to know all the details below.

The Family Man Season 3 Release date: When is it?

The first season of The Family Man premiered on September 20, 2019, comprising 10 episodes followed by the second season which was released on June 4, 2021. 

The Family Man earned favorable responses from audiences and critics alike applauding the performance of the actors, the well-crafted plot, and its excellent execution. This series also managed to bag the most viewed web series on the streaming service, Amazon Prime Video.

Following the success of its first and second season, it’s no surprise that the series is getting a much-needed third-season run. The series creators Raj and D. K. declared openly in May 2020 that the third installment of The Family Man is soon to be in development and since it’s already almost at the end of the year, filming might be in the last stages if there are no delays caused by the Covid-19 pandemic as India is badly affected by the pandemic and still struggling with it. 

While the official release date is not yet confirmed, we assume that fans won’t get to see the new episodes until 2023 at the earliest as we have mentioned before, India is still amidst the pandemic. So fingers crossed that we get to see the new season as soon as possible.

CORRECTION — CAST Achieves AWS Migration and Modernization



NEW YORK and PARIS, Nov. 30, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — In a release issued under the same headline earlier today by CAST Software Inc. (Euronext Paris: CAS), please note that the hyperlink featured in the first paragraph has been updated. The corrected release follows:

CAST announced today that it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Migration and Modernization Competency status for AWS Partners. This designation recognizes that CAST has demonstrated technical proficiency and proven customer success accelerating customer application migration and modernization journeys.

To support the seamless integration and deployment of AWS solutions, AWS established AWS Competency Program to help customers identify AWS Partners with deep industry experience and expertise.

AWS launched the AWS Migration and Modernization Competency to allow customers to easily and confidently engage highly specialized AWS Partners that help AWS customers modernize their applications, either before or after they are moved to AWS. The AWS Migration and Modernization Competency takes on the heavy lifting of identifying and validating industry leaders with proven customer success and technical proficiency in migration and application modernization tooling.

Achieving the AWS Migration and Modernization Competency differentiates CAST as an AWS Partner with deep domain expertise, delivering software products that make it easier for clients to embrace cloud and application transformation, thereby reducing licensing costs, optimizing operational costs, and improving performance, agility, and resiliency.

“CAST is proud to be one of the first AWS Partners to achieve the new AWS Migration and Modernization Competency status,” said Marc Zablit, Executive Vice President Business Development at CAST. “Enterprises are increasingly looking to take advantage of the agility, breadth of services and pace of innovation that AWS provides for their complex custom-built applications, which have been mostly designed over the years on different environments and need to be modernized. CAST technology helps enterprises to assess, prioritize, and modernize for cloud their applications easier, safer, and faster.”

“The AWS Migration and Modernization Competency provides the widest and deepest variety of migration and modernization solutions that allow customers and Partners to migrate and modernize to AWS at scale,” said Bill Platt, General Manager, AWS Migration Services.

CAST products provide insights into the inner workings and structural condition of software applications, essential for speeding up and de-risking their migration and modernization to cloud:

  • CAST Highlight can analyze hundreds of applications in a week to pinpoint what needs to change in the source code, the effort required, the best-suited AWS services to use, and the best migration path to take.
  • CAST Imaging then automatically reverse-engineers the actual architecture of a given application into interactive application maps to help architects and developers navigate key modernization steps, such as re-platforming, re-architecting, framework or database replacement, breaking monoliths into services.
  • Once in the cloud, continuous use of CAST ensures the applications remain agile, safe, and resilient.

CAST software is already used to enable safer and faster migration to cloud by hundreds of enterprises and by leading system integrators, such as Accenture, CGI, DXC, IBM Services, Infosys, LTI, Wipro.

“A global manufacturing company with 95,000 employees embarked on a massive AWS migration effort for applications using multiple technologies, including Java, .NET, VB, PowerBuilder and COBOL, many requiring modernization,” said Zablit. “Using CAST Highlight, 633 applications were assessed in less than 12 weeks, and in just 3 months, the complete, detailed AWS migration roadmap was in place. The manufacturer could begin the migration, start cutting data center costs, and take advantage of AWS benefits.”
