ISODA Expands With Pune Chapter
ISODA inaugurated its Pune Chapter in a bid to increase its membership across the country and to have increased representation from smaller cities. “Pune is an important market with a strong IT partner ecosystem. Hence, we decided to open a local chapter. Our aim is to have a larger representation of partners from across the country in addressing the challenges and issues, and foster collaboration among our members,” said Rajeev Mamidanna, Regional Secretary, West, ISODA. ISODA held the inaugural event on March 9, 2016, which was attended by ISODA Western region committee members, and leading partners from Pune, including Askari Infotech, GTS Technologies, C-DOT Systems, Supreme Computer and Software, Vintech Electronic Systems and Sujata Computers.
The event witnessed a discussion about smooth on-boarding of new partners and how ISODA can add value to Pune partners. ISODA committee also noted some of the critical issues faced by Pune partners and promised to represent it at the right forum.
Under its ISODA 2.0 vision, the industry body has ambitious plans to open more chapters in smaller cities in coming months. “Each of these chapters will have full autonomy and will conduct their regional meets independently. Members from these chapters will have access to all the initiatives and activities conducted by ISODA including our annual TechSummit forum. We want partners across the country to partake in various programs being undertaken by ISODA for the benefit of the community,” added Rajeev.
