Introduction

The economic shifts and variables being jolted by the pandemic has accelerated and intensified trends that were already underway. An opportunity to not only accelerate pace of change but to press some bold & big resets in strategy. 

10 Years of Online delivery’s volume = 8 Weeks of pandemic.  Telemedicine 10x growth in 15days. Similarly in online education, nearshoring, and remote working. High growth of hygiene- products and still expanding. Pharmaceuticals are reinventing. E-commerce investments in infrastructure, logistics and expansion. Enterprises have realised that moving slow to normalcy is no fun. 

All this manifest in THE GREAT “RESET”:- 
• Reallocating resources to digital platforms 
• Full throttled analytics programs   
• Remote workforce and its mobility 
• Digital led business process transformation
• Building new capabilities, position and credibility

A new world would emerge and technology would play a key role in re-imagining & re-drawing the fundamentals.  Companies would need to reset scenarios to steer an effective path through uncertainty by responding to the crisis, resetting operating models and rebounding on the trajectory of growth.

The summit is set to be held on a 3D virtual platform on 8th & 9th October, 2020.

    Cloud Ready Operating Model
    The pandemic has created a shift in approach to cloud by companies. Organisations need cloud for more than just new applications, they are considering cloud for all their applications, including existing ones. Much of it is based on the modern organisation’s need for greater agility and flexibility. They now need to develop and deploy critical cloud-native applications and services using the latest cloud technologies to accelerate time-to-market and innovation at lower costs. Moreover, the cloud continues to be the foundation upon which most organisations’ digital transformation efforts are built. This has had a great impact on the basic fundamentals of cloud adoption of building a zero trust security. Enterprises are having to rebuild from scratch, as it calls for a complete process redesign.
