Winning through Disruptions
The technology eco-system is going through a wrenching change. Entirely new computing paradigms such as Cloud base Services and new delivery platforms such as mobile devices are forcing companies to change like never before. An IDC framework to look at these trends will be presented followed by essential guidance for the future.
Cloud: The opportunities and Pitfalls
Cloud is a solution that will revolutionize the way IT vendors deliver IT solutions and how companies consume IT. Companies in India are rapidly adopting cloud solutions so that they can benefit from it’s immense value, but many companies are not necessarily building a “roadmap” to the cloud journey. In this session IDC will share its key observations and pitfalls of the cloud adoption and provide guidance on how best to derive the most value from cloud journey.
Breakout Session: International Track
Harnessing Global Trends Locally
India´s role as a global player in the ICT ecosystem is widely recognized and the presence of Indian ICT firms is becoming increasingly pervasive. Indian and foreign multinationals continuously scan the “Industry Vertical” eco-system for growth. This session would highlight the key verticals in focus across the globe and the impact of disruptions. There would be a contrast between geographies presented to help delineate megatrends for the coming year.

Reality of Non-Linear Growth
The services industry is in the beginning stages of shifting to what can be called "non-linear" models of services consumption and delivery. Some of the more common names to describe non-linear services include cloud and platform-based BPO. The impact of this shift will result in fundamental changes to the structure of the IT, communications and business process services industries as well as the structure of the providers that deliver these services. This session will take a look at how non-linear services differ from the more traditional "linear" services markets; what is the structure of a non-linear services industry; and what are strategic building blocks in creating a winning non-linear business, such as cloud factories, integrated digital services supply chains, sense-and-respond business operations, new "last mile" channels, and application services catalogues.
