Modi’s Dig­i­tal In­dia con­cept even played a ma­jor role at the stage of SP Sum­mit 2016. Dig­i­tal In­dia theme was again di­vided into two ses­sions. Firstly we had a panel dis­cus­sion on dig­i­tal In­dia ini­tia­tive; there were 6 chan­nel part­ners who par­tic­i­pated at the panel dis­cus­sion. The dis­cus­sion gave us new in­sights on the dig­i­tal In­dia move star­ring many new thoughts it was learned that In­dia has very well grasped Dig­i­tal idea.

Keep­ing this in mind the ses­sion was de­signed to know a dig­i­tal con­cept from the chan­nel fra­ter­nity.


Nityanand Shetty from Essen Vision shared a thought, for which we can think, that was to iden­tify se­cu­rity man­age­ment and set it in place. He quoted that the busi­ness world is in­creas­ingly re­liant on tech­nol­ogy to sup­ply in­for­ma­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­tions fa­cil­i­ties to staff, part­ners, and cus­tomers. Se­cur­ing or­ga­ni­za­tional in­for­ma­tion and the sys­tems that are used to man­age and trans­mit data has be­come a high pro­file func­tion. Fail­ure to se­cure in­for­ma­tion can have a se­vere im­pact on busi­ness cred­i­bil­ity.

He also men­tioned about the threats to an or­ga­ni­za­tion which come in a va­ri­ety of forms, for ex­am­ple from hack­ing, viruses, and sim­ple hu­man er­ror. The types of threats change con­stantly, so man­age­ment must spon­sor, de­sign, and im­ple­ment busi­ness and tech­ni­cal pro­cesses to safe­guard crit­i­cal busi­ness as­sets. To cre­ate a more se­cure busi­ness en­vi­ron­ment the or­ga­ni­za­tion must: As­sess busi­ness ex­po­sure and iden­tify which as­sets to se­cure. Iden­tify ways to re­duce risk to an ac­cept­able level. De­sign a plan for mit­i­gat­ing se­cu­rity risks. Mon­i­tor the ef­fi­ciency of se­cu­rity mech­a­nisms. Re-eval­u­ate ef­fec­tive­ness and se­cu­rity re­quire­ments reg­u­larly. Ac­cord­ing to Nityanand Shetty all of these ac­tiv­i­ties must be co­or­di­nated within a well-de­fined strat­egy. An or­ga­ni­za­tion can man­age risk to an ac­cept­able level by de­vel­op­ing se­cu­rity poli­cies and mak­ing staff and com­mer­cial part­ners aware of their re­spon­si­bil­i­ties within them. Se­cu­rity can also con­trib­ute to an or­ga­ni­za­tion’s bot­tom line, be­cause cus­tomers value the re­li­a­bil­ity of a sup­plier.


‘Cor­po­rate Giv­ing,’ ‘ Cor­po­rate Cit­i­zen­ship’ and ‘Cor­po­rate So­cial Re­spon­si­bil­ity’ (CSR) are pop­u­lar con­cepts which have be­come in­te­gral to the busi­nesses of sev­eral large and small com­pa­nies around the world. These con­cepts in­tend to pro­vide do­na­tions, long-term fi­nan­cial grants, non-fi­nan­cial sup­port and even mu­tu­ally ben­e­fi­cial part­ner­ships to ad­dress so­cial prob­lems around the world. In such a con­text, NGOs have a strong po­ten­tial look upon them as a one of the im­por­tant sources of fund­ing.

Cor­po­rate like Suresh Ramani from Techgyan, Mum­bai is work­ing on soft­ware for poor chil­dren with the help of NGOs; their main idea is to lit­er­ate the poor class through dif­fer­ent soft­ware medi­ums which are easy to un­der­stand and less time con­sum­ing. It works to sup­port the next gen­er­a­tion of change maker by in­te­grat­ing in­no­va­tive, val­ues-based busi­ness prac­tices, we con­trib­ute to the growth and sus­tain­abil­ity of the com­pany, pro­duce so­cial, en­vi­ron­men­tal and eco­nomic ben­e­fits for com­mu­ni­ties, en­hance the com­pany’s rep­u­ta­tion.

The or­ga­ni­za­tion helps train lo­cal com­mu­nity mem­bers, teach­ers, Chil­dren. They also work on the Cen­tral be­lief that, “that ‘lit­er­acy’ is what one ac­quires in school, but ‘ed­u­ca­tion’ is what one gains from fam­ily, tra­di­tions, cul­ture, en­vi­ron­ment and per­sonal ex­pe­ri­ence. In ad­di­tion to its ed­u­ca­tional ef­forts, the or­ga­ni­za­tion also seeks to de­mys­tify and de­cen­tral­ize tech­nol­ogy use, pro­mote fe­male em­pow­er­ment, and de­velop vil­lages from the inside out–rather than vice-versa.

Not all ma­jor cor­po­ra­tions have so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity pro­grams and not all of them pro­vide fund­ing for NGOs to ad­dress var­i­ous is­sues and prob­lems of our so­ci­ety. The few cor­po­ra­tions which have grant pro­grams are too cau­tious to openly come out with strong com­mit­ments for ren­der­ing any kind of fund­ing sup­port. Such cor­po­ra­tions do de­clare that they have com­mu­nity wel­fare pro­grams but they do not seem to ex­ist be­yond their web­sites and pub­lic­ity brochures.


On the other hand Balkrishna Kondalkar, from Konnet So­lu­tions talked about Real-Time In­no­va­tions. Ac­cord­ing to him Real-Time In­no­va­tions in­tro­duced a new ser­vice, the RTI In­dus­trial In­ter­net of Things (IOT) FASTTRAX which should be soon im­ple­mented.

He quoted that In­dus­trial IOT FASTTRAX will help com­pa­nies cap­i­tal­ize on the eco­nomic growth and en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact of the ex­plod­ing In­dus­trial In­ter­net. The RTI In­dus­trial IOT FASTTRAX ser­vice gives com­pa­nies tai­lored rec­om­men­da­tions and guid­ance to trans­form ex­ist­ing so­lu­tions or in­tro­duce new of­fer­ings that take ad­van­tage of In­dus­trial IOT op­por­tu­ni­ties. In the In­dus­trial IOT FASTTRAX pro­gram, ex­pe­ri­enced RTI en­gi­neers will nav­i­gate com­pa­nies through the emerg­ing In­dus­trial IOT al­liances, con­sor­tia, pro­to­cols and stan­dards.

He even men­tioned that RTI will lever­age the com­pany’s time-tested en­gage­ment model and ex­plore both ex­ist­ing and emerg­ing use-cases, iden­ti­fy­ing sys­tem re­quire­ments, op­er­a­tional be­hav­ior, and busi­ness driv­ers. Emerg­ing con­sor­tia guid­ance, IIC pub­lished ref­er­ence ar­chi­tec­tures, test­bed ac­tiv­i­ties, and en­dorsed stan­dards will also be fac­tored in. Fi­nally, RTI will pro­duce tai­lored rec­om­men­da­tions fo­cused on help­ing com­pa­nies blue­print their In­dus­trial IOT ar­chi­tec­ture, en­abling them to achieve a com­pet­i­tive ad­van­tage, in­crease op­er­a­tional ef­fi­ciency, and re­al­ize new rev­enue streams.
