INTEROP MUM­BAI 2013: IT Leads, Busi­ness Suc­ceeds

InformationWeek - - Event -

Now in its fifth edi­tion, the INTEROP Mum­bai Con­fer­ence and Expo will be held be­tween Novem­ber 20–22, 2013 at the Bom­bay Con­ven­tion and Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­ter, Gore­gaon. This year INTEROP will see new con­fer­ence for­mats and ses­sions. The expo area too will in­tro­duce new themed pavil­ions.

The over­ar­ch­ing theme for INTEROP Mum­bai this year is “IT Leads, Busi­ness suc­ceeds.” In keep­ing with this theme, there will be busi­ness and ver­ti­cal fo­cused ses­sions for the health­care, BFSI, man­u­fac­tur­ing, and ed­u­ca­tion ver­ti­cals. In th­ese ses­sions, the speak­ers will talk about the chal­lenges, op­por­tu­ni­ties and tech­no­log­i­cal in­no­va­tions in their re­spec­tive sec­tors.

The three-day con­fer­ence will have two par­al­lel tracks with at least six key­notes (two per day).

An­other new for­mat is ti­tled ‘Down to Busi­ness’ and will see ses­sions from prom­i­nent en­ter­prises such as Es­sar Group and Marico. Th­ese busi­ness­fo­cused ses­sions will have C-level ex­ec­u­tives from the busi­ness side speak about busi­ness chal­lenges, strate­gies and ob­jec­tives. The CIO/CTO from the same or­ga­ni­za­tion will ex­plain how s/he is align­ing IT with busi­ness ob­jec­tives.

In ad­di­tion, there will be a work­shop con­ducted by CIO Spe­cial­ist. The speaker line-up at INTEROP also in­cludes CIOs/CTOs who will make in­di­vid­ual pre­sen­ta­tions on IT-busi­ness align­ment.

Con­sid­er­ing that OpenS­tack has been gain­ing a lot of trac­tion in the IT in­dus­try, we have in­cluded a work­shop on OpenS­tack this year, which will be con­ducted by an OpenS­tack evan­ge­list and global speaker.

The buzz about In­for­ma­tion Se­cu­rity has picked up and now in­cludes mo­bile plat­forms. Look out for our se­cu­rity ses­sions and work­shops in the con­fer­ence agenda — all con­ducted by in­for­ma­tion se­cu­rity spe­cial­ists and au­thor­i­ties from In­dia.

Speak­ers for the gen­eral ses­sions were cho­sen through a rig­or­ous and re­designed Call for Pa­pers process to en­sure qual­ity of con­tent and cred­i­ble speak­ers.

Some of the key speak­ers this year are: Jay Bav­isi, Global Pres­i­dent, EC Coun­cil Manoj Chugh, Global Head for Busi­ness De­vel­op­ment, Mahin­dra Satyam Di­nesh Pil­lai, CEO, Mahin­dra Spe­cial Ser­vices Group Dr. Pavan Kumar, Head of the Depart­ment of Telemedicine, Nana­vati Hos­pi­tal Dr. Prasad Ra­manathan, As­so­ciate VP - Re­search & In­no­va­tion, iGate Sreekanta Arad­hya B, Ex­pert, Man­u­fac­tur­ing Ex­e­cu­tion Sys­tems, Robert Bosch En­gi­neer­ing and Busi­ness So­lu­tions DD Mishra, Founder, CIO Spe­cial­ist Alpna Doshi, CIO, Re­liance Group Bala Meshram, Vice Pres­i­dent-IT, The Ship­ping Cor­po­ra­tion of In­dia Shailesh Rao, Di­rec­tor of New Prod­ucts & So­lu­tions, Google En­ter­prise Sa­jid Akhtar, Or­ga­nizer, OpenS­tack In­dia User Group Spe­cial busi­ness and in­dus­try ses­sions are also be­ing planned with es­tab­lished in­sti­tu­tions such as NASS­COM and BICSI, who will part­ner with INTEROP this year. BICSI pub­lishes stan­dards and man­u­als for the in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy sys­tems (ITS) in­dus­try.

Re­spond­ing to feed­back from last year’s vis­i­tors, the con­fer­ence com­mit­tee de­cided to add more time for net­work­ing and vis­its to the expo.

In­no­va­tions will also be in­tro­duced in the expo area, which will see five themed zones this year: Se­cu­rity, Cloud, En­ter­prise VAR, BICSI, and the China Pav­il­ion. Work­shops and demos will be con­ducted in spe­cial ar­eas on the expo floor.

With this new and in­spi­ra­tional con­tent , we ex­pect the vis­i­tors to be a mix of IT de­ci­sion mak­ers, im­ple­menters, eval­u­a­tors, de­vel­op­ers — as well as se­nior ex­e­cutes from the busi­ness side.
