Sharing his views on the event Diego Utge, SVP & Country Chief Executive Ingram Micro India said “When we started planning for this conference, we asked ourselves how we can take the message of Digital Transformation from a select few in metros to the mass market in Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities so that the message is understood and embraced by everyone in the IT ecosystem. With a carefully designed agenda that covers the various established and emerging technologies delivered by a fantastic array of speakers, we have digitally transformed the conference itself to provide our partners across the subcontinent with great learning opportunities and immersive experience”
India’s Digital Revolution and the opportunity for the Channel Mike Zilis, Executive Vice President and Group President, Ingram Micro Asia Pacific said, “India is on the cusp of a digital revolution with the proliferation of SMAC and the increased adoption of technologies like HCI, Cloud, IoT, and AI”.
A recent report by Gartner suggests that India’s IT spending is projected to grow by 6.7% to become an $89 billion opportunity in 2019, with growth primarily being attributed to the Digital Transformation of business processes across the private and government sectors.
As organizations explore how to interpret and navigate digital transformation over the next few years, the IT channel has tremendous opportunity to drive, guide, and profit from the digital future.
This conference is intended to serve as the perfect platform for everyone associated with this industry to exchange knowledge, extend support and help foster the growth of the Indian ICT industry.
