Message from Executive Director 

It’s an exciting time for technology. Big data, artificial intelligence, on-demand computing and an increasingly networked economy are catalysing change in diverse industries and changing how we live and work. Grounded in the ISB tradition of rigorous and relevant research, SRITNE advances the understanding of industry leaders and policymakers of the impacts of technology on business and society and the drivers of such impact. Through research, education and outreach activities, the centre stimulates interaction between business leaders, students, ISB faculty, and the academic community at large, and provides an important opportunity for these stakeholders to co-create value in a rapidly changing business context. In the following pages, you can find out more information about how we help industry and governments lead dynamic, information-intensive organisations.

Research centres owe their vibrancy and value to the people who are at the heart of their work. We thank the diverse faculty body for their research contributions to SRITNE and the energy and passion that they bring to the forefront of the centre’s programmes and outreach. I would also like to express gratitude to Mr. Srini Raju for his continued support and encouragement provided through this decade-long journey.

We hope that you will find value in SRITNE’s research, upcoming events and educational programmes showcased on this website and will engage with us to help further our agenda of creating new and useful knowledge for businesses and society. We look forward to welcoming you to become part of the ISB SRITNE community.
