What is the event about?

Cloud as a technology has already made the difference to the businesses across India, and yet the debate still continues.

Catch Greyhound Research and our Chief Analyst & Group CEO, Sanchit Vir Gogia at a panel discussion on Internet of things – transforming lives and business

What is the Discussion about?

Much is being written about the Internet of Things these days. IoT or IoE is really about networks, devices, people and processes – and how these are all getting interconnected. The enabling technologies are mobility, cloud computing, big data analytics and social – a collective term for this is SMAC.

But IoT technology will require heavy engineering, technical expertise and of course, plenty of funding for research. No single organization will be capable of providing an end-to-end IoT solution. Rather, it will involve an ecosystem of players offering different components, at different layers of the stack. Government and Policy makers will need to frame guidelines to protect a user’s privacy and to prevent misuse.

The innovations and breakthrough technologies for IoT will come from the start-ups, with funding from venture capitalists. These start-up will be deemed as “disrupters” and their IP and companies may eventually be acquired by IT behemoths or other disrupters such as Google, Salesforce and Amazon. What we are witnessing right now are partnerships between consumer electronics companies and the start-ups offering this innovation.

Panellists will offer perspectives on what it would take for IoT technology to become mainstream and affordable. They will talk about current and future applications in verticals like manufacturing and healthcare. How will IoT transform business? How should organizations prepare?

What is the Discussion about?

The government has announced an allocation of Rs 7,060 crore for 100 smart cities in the Union Budget. This amount is for modernization of existing infrastructure and also for setting up new satellite cities that are self-sufficient. The initiative is aimed at reducing infrastructure strain in over- crowded cities.

Digitization and connectivity will be at the core in smart-enabling these cities. These cities will be the new business hubs, and will generate jobs. Smart cities will be knowledge hubs and will embody smart, eco, and learning. A good example is Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City (SSGKC).

So how is the IT industry preparing to tap this opportunity? What are the opportunities? What is the best way for the industry to collaborate (Public-Private partnership) with government to support this big and bold initiative?

Catch Sanchit Vir Gogia, Chief Analyst & Group CEO, Greyhound Research, as a panelist at the Panel Discussion ‘Business Uninterrupted

What is the Panel Discussion about?

Life is inherently unpredictable; disasters – big and small; high probability and low probability – lurk in every corner. Turning a blind eye to them is a recipe for, well, disaster. And living always in fear is an invitation to paralysis. Wishing they never happen is naïve. One needs a pragmatic approach to the issue, which involves understanding the nature of disruptions, their respective impact on the business, creating a plan to deal with them if they occur, calibrating the response to the potential cost and testing for readiness. This is common sense, but like all things sensible, may not be very common. What are the issues in business continuity in practice and how best to deal with them will be the focus of this session.

Panellists: 

  • Dhiren Savla, Global Chief Information Officer, VFS Global
  • Asheesh Malhotra, Partner, IT Advisory Services, Ernst and Young
  • Sanchit Vir Gogia, Chief Analyst & Chief Executive Officer, Greyhound Research
