CII Connect 2017
Conference and Exposition on Information and Communication Technology (ICT)
"Intelligent Economy – Leveraging Technology for the New Era"
Confederation of Indian Industry is organising the 16th Edition of CONNECT 2017 – India’s premier ICT annual event with the theme “Intelligent Economy – Leveraging Technology for the New Era” on 6-7 November 2017 at Hotel Taj Coromandel, Nungambakkam, Chennai. The event is jointly organised by Govt of Tamil Nadu and Confederation of Indian Industry. The knowledge partner for the event is KPMG.
With the continuous support CII has received from the Govt of Tamil Nadu, Connect has showcased the potential of Tamil Nadu and has also evolved as a great networking platform. The event has seen industry leaders, international delegations and policy makers come together, exchange insights, views on accelerating the growth and sustainability of the Indian IT sector.
The Connect series has given impetus to wider industry – Government collaborations and led to projects like the Chennai Aero Park, ICT Academy, IT Parks in tier 2 & 3 cities, IT Corridors, Development of SEZs, etc.
This edition of Connect has expanded in the scope and reach, and will feature key tracks along with a small exposition on the themes. Connect 2017 have broadly touch on the following as to how potential technology transforms our lives and work, enables people, businesses, Governments and it is quite the opposite when it comes to predicting the future of technology.
How can organisations survive and adapt to these changes? Organisations are increasingly seeing their competitor lists grow multi-fold because of two prime reasons; new entrants coming out with innovative ideas and other industries getting into each other’s line of businesses. Industries are also exploring re-skilling initiatives for their employees as newer technology means new skills. And not just organizations, Governments are also constantly on the lookout to see how best they can serve citizens and a single solution for most of the complex questions has been ‘technology’.
With citizens being termed as digizens now, Government also strongly feel the need for technology to reach out to them effectively and efficiently. Technology has now become an integral part of all our lives and we cannot possibly imagine performing most tasks without them. Without technology, we tend to become disabled and that’s an indication of the degree of interdependency between man and machine. We need to adopt technologies in the safest way possible.
