Indian Institute of Management is all set to go live with Vyakriti, the Inaugural IT and Analytics Conclave, on the 18th of September. The conclave will be conducted in Video Conference mode, with panellists joining from different parts of India. Vyakriti aims to provide a dais where the veterans from the industry will interact and reflect with the budding managers on the recent trends and developments in IT and Analytics. In the backdrop of the inauguration of a new batch of MBA- Business Analytics, the conclave will be a keystone in bringing the students closer to the industry expectations.
The theme for the panel discussion this year would be “Evolving to Adapt; Digital Transformation in the Era of Disruption.” The theme will explore the right challenges and opportunities businesses face due to evolving digital technologies, transforming how traditional firms operate. It aims to capture the changes required on all levels of the organisation, including the workforce transformation and corporate governance model itself.
IIM Amritsar would be hosting eminent panellists from diverse industries. The panellists are- Mr Ritwik Rath, Chief General Manager- IS Strategy, HPCL; Mr Bhaskar Roy, VP and Global Operating Leader, Genpact, Analytics and Research Services; Mr Jitendra Kanojia, Head of Analytics, Shoppers Stop; Ms Ruchi Bubber, Head of Analytics, Pernod Ricard; Mr Mehul Bhagadia, Head of Data and Analytics, Commercial Banking – Wells Fargo; and Mr Sunder Prabhu S, AVP Analytics Consulting, Tiger Analytics. The event will be covered by ET Now on their television channel and will also be streamed live on the IIM Amritsar YouTube channel.
The digital era has left businesses at a significant turning point. The rapid growth in differentiating digital capabilities has forced companies to reconsider and rethink the values they create through their ecosystems. However, firms are still sceptical as they believe that these digital technologies will pose an existential threat to their traditional way of doing business. Thus, usually, they end up focussing on digitising only what they already do. The firms that do invest to stay ahead and create differentiation have concerns about betting on a ranch. To this end, the panel discussion at IIM Amritsar would help future leaders prepare for the uncertainties in this dynamic business scenario.
