“Technologies like Cloud Computing/IoT/ Big Data Analytics/Artificial Intelligence/ Deep Learning/ Machine Learning/ Computer Vision/ Automation/Robotics are transforming our lives today in ways more than we can imagine. AI is currently going through a deep of research as well so that its use and potential can be fully tapped. Simply put, ‘Internet of Things’ is a concept of connecting any device which has an on and off switch to the internet, and in addition, if it has also been allocated an IP, Sunil said.
He further cites McKinsey report which expects by 2030, there will be close to 600 million people who will reside in Indian cities. This will require huge infrastructure to support the ever-expanding urban population, through the smart city projects. It is also estimated that there will be a need for investment worth US$ 1.2 trillion as capital expenditure in cities in the next 20 years, required to meet the expectation of the ambitious plan.
Challenges Pushing Innovation-Evolution Graph
Sunil believes today all deals are about innovation, understanding of technologies. The company is focused on engineering business outcomes that include being engineering-oriented, designing and creating new systems, applications, and technologies for its clients to produce compelling outcomes — increasing revenues, reducing cost and timelines, improving client satisfaction, etc.
One of the challenges according to him is the need to recognize its clients’ readiness — both from a system standpoint as well as user adoption and processes — to adopt leading-edge technologies. Then only the recognition of the tools and solutions will enable the focus on business outcomes and produce the desired results without too big a risk or support cost.
