oing Dig­i­tal- what does it mean to you and your or­ga­ni­za­tion?

We live in the dig­i­tal age and there is a need for ev­ery com­pany to have busi­ness strat­egy which is rel­e­vant for the dig­i­tal age. KPIT is a tech­nol­ogy leader in au­to­mo­tive and trans­porta­tion do­main and we em­brace dig­i­tal tech­nolo­gies to solve cus­tomer prob­lems in an in­no­va­tive way. Go­ing Dig­i­tal means im­prov­ing the pace of in­no­va­tion, con­vert­ing ev­ery ser­vice into ex­pe­ri­ence, im­prov­ing ‘in the mo­ment’ ef­fec­tive­ness of the em­ploy­ees by pro­vid­ing real time in­sights and mak­ing in­vis­i­ble vis­i­ble. Dig­i­tal should be used for Au­tomat­ing tasks, Aug­ment­ing pro­cesses and am­pli­fy­ing jobs.

What is your Dig­i­tal Trans­for­ma­tion plan, strat­egy and the de­liv­er­ables you ex­pect or al­ready com­ing in?

Two years ago, at KPIT we started our dig­i­tal jour­ney by en­vi­sion­ing Smart En­ter­prise. Smart En­ter­prise con­sist­ing of Smart Cam­pus, Smart Col­lab­o­ra­tion, Smart busi­ness ap­pli­ca­tions, Smart In­sights, Smart work­force, Smart re­la­tion­ships and Smart In­fra­struc­ture. We have made sub­stan­tial progress in all the ar­eas. We are early adopter of En­ter­prise Hy­brid cloud and Nu­tanix tech­nolo­gies are core to our cloud in­fra­struc­ture.

We have adopted soft­ware­de­fined ap­proach and built dig­i­tal in­fra­struc­ture con­sist­ing of Hyper­con­verged in­fra in Dat­a­cen­tre, Soft­ware de­fined se­cu­rity and cam­pus net­work. We started in­te­grat­ing di­verse in­fra­struc­ture so­lu­tions on cloud plat­form giv­ing more power to devel­op­ers in dy­namic pro­vi­sion­ing and man­ag­ing in­fra­struc­ture from code. We have also built in­tel­li­gent ERP us­ing SAP S/4 Hana as our Sys­tem of records which is in­te­grated with KPIT’s sys­tem of en­gage­ment and sys­tem of in­tel­li­gence built us­ing cloud na­tive tech­nolo­gies.

At KPIT, we also have very high fo­cus on build­ing #Think Dig­i­tal cul­ture where ev­ery em­ployee has to com­plete Dig­i­tal cer­ti­fi­ca­tions to be­come DigiChamp. In last 4 months, we have 10000+ em­ploy­ees com­pleted dig­i­tal cer­ti­fi­ca­tions and be­came DigiChamp. We have rolled out var­i­ous reskilling pro­grams for em­ploy­ees for learn­ing cog­ni­tive tech­nolo­gies, Miroser­vices and cloud na­tive ap­pli­ca­tion ar­chi­tec­tures, DevSecOps and var­i­ous new gen­er­a­tions lan­guages.

DIG­I­TAL SHOULD BE USED FOR AU­TOMAT­ING TASKS, AUG­MENT­ING PRO­CESSES AND AM­PLI­FY­ING JOBS
