Theme

Build, Grow & Invent: The Route to Realisation

 

Realizing value from technology investments requires organizations to carefully select use cases that will create value. Then, a business case is developed from these use cases that will deliver on capabilities to support current priorities while laying the foundations for future strategies. The level of investment and complexity of the use cases will vary depending on the organization's maturity, and the projects undertaken will support digital growth at these different levels through:

 

 
BUILD

Building the foundation on which organizations will lay down future digital expertise and capabilities.

 
GROW

Developing products and processes that rely on digital solutions allows organizations to grow their market share, grow into new markets, and pivot product and service offerings.

 
INVENT

Taking the organization to new levels by implementing emergent technologies and digital processes at scale, pushing the boundaries, and creating new market segments through the capabilities they enable.

 

For more than three-quarters of Indian organizations disruptions of the pandemic highlighted the need for a digital-first strategy(1)

Realizing the Value of “Data” for Digital Resiliency: Fireside Chat Session by Snowflake

Murad Wagh

Rishu Sharma

Associate Research Director, Cloud & Artificial Intelligence, IDC India

That data is critical is almost non-debatable now! Leaning on data to be able to understand the entire ecosystem of partners, suppliers, and customers, to be able to drive real-time business decisions is among the top priorities for Indian organizations. However, organizations are overwhelmed with the data deluge.  What increases the complexity is the use of disparate on/off-premises and multiple cloud technologies for their data-associated needs. The need of the hour, thus, is to leverage a new-age data architecture that supports the enterprise needs of faster analytics at scale across varied environments, all in a secured and compliant manner. This session will discuss how organizations can unleash the value of data to become digitally resilient.
