Workshop on Digital Transformation - 2018

Fuelled by rapid technological advances and globalisation, the scope of technology services has evolved from peripheral activities with a focus on cost reduction to include a diverse set of critical functions such as innovation, new product development, process re-engineering and supply chain management that impact firm performance and society. This evolution of technology services is especially pronounced and relevant in an era of rapid automation, big data and social networks with transformational effects on incumbent business and government service delivery models. The purpose of the Workshop on Digital Transformation is to bring together an interdisciplinary leaders from industry, government and academia to push our understanding of the future of technology services, including but not limited to technology-enabled service innovations, newer forms of organisation of service delivery, and human capital management. 


The workshop, hosted by the Srini Raju Centre for Information Technology and the Networked Economy (SRITNE) will be held on Friday, 12th October, 2018 at the Indian School of Business (ISB), Hyderabad campus. It will include keynote presentations by industry, government and academic leaders and panel discussions on key issues around the focused topics identified for the workshop. 

Workshop on Digital Transformation - 2017

Rapid technological advances offer a simpler and more connected future for all, but putting them into practice will not be easy. A few highlights from the recently Workshop on Digital Transformations organised by the Srini Raju Centre for Information Technology and the Networked Economy (SRITNE) at ISB on September 22-23, 2017.

How will the Government of India’s Digital India mission enable the state in extending its programmes more effectively and effi ciently to hitherto unserved citizens in remote corners of the country? What is the role of intellectual property rights (IPR) in the context of fostering cutting-edge innovation (or the lack thereof) in India? How is artifi cial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and deep learning redefi ning the nature and functioning of practically every industry?

Participants from academia, government and industry came together recently at the workshop on Digital Transformations, hosted by the Srini Raju Centre for Information Technology and the Networked Economy (SRITNE) at the Indian School of Business (ISB) on September 22-23, 2017, to imagine the shape of these digital transformations in the near horizon.
