IT is all about asking the right business questions


As Abhijit Varma, partner ITA at KPMG India, ended his presentation, the audience—who hadn’t let their eyes wander from the stage for ten whole minutes—suddenly rose in applause. Abhijit’s presentation, which was nothing short of a roller coaster ride, managed to touch upon everything from Elon Musk to Calvin and Hobbes. Abhijit finished his talk with one final thought for the audience, urging everyone to think along the lines of “how organizations, and the world, can benefit from technology.” This directive probably best summed up last month’s The Economic Times – ManageEngine CIO Symposium in Bangalore and Delhi. The two-part symposium was held in the JW Marriott in Bangalore and the Hyatt Regency in New Delhi over the course of three days.

The symposium’s theme was “The changing role of IT in the era of digital transformation,” which left the stage open to a wide range of conversations—with evolving compliance policies and the reliability of IT management tools amongst the hottest topics. The symposium’s panels were comprised of CIOs from top firms and the very best minds from analyst firms, resulting in two action-packed mornings with ManageEngine and The Economic Times playing host to more than 165 CIOs and IT directors of various organizations across Bangalore and Delhi. The telecom, banking, e-commerce, and research industries were particularly well represented, with national IT directors and vice presidents from the likes of British Telecom, ShopClues, and Nielsen in attendance.

We thought the engagement at Bangalore was tremendous…

The effervescent host, Alokesh Bhattacharyya, got the ball rolling at Bangalore in his trademark witty style. He immediately threw down the gauntlet to the panelists, asking them to convince the attendees how quickly IT really is changing. What ensued was five high-quality presentations, each peppered with examples and anecdotes ranging from customer engagement to government projects, with a round of Q&A following every panelist’s speech. Dr. Pallab Saha, chief architect at The Open Group, stressed that technology can seamlessly cut across industries, and went on to talk about how the Telengana government is leveraging technology to empower businesses.
