Thank you!

Dear Mem­bers,

This is the last edi­tion where I am ad­dress­ing you as the Pres­i­dent. I thank you all for en­trust­ing me with this re­spon­si­bil­ity.

I took this po­si­tion with many as­pi­ra­tions and ideas. Although not all could be ex­e­cuted, there are some tan­gi­ble achieve­ments to share. We have re­vamped ISODA web­site with new aes­thet­ics and up­dated de­tails about our mem­bers’ strengths and ex­per­tise, with the ob­jec­tive to in­crease col­lab­o­ra­tion among us.

We cre­ated an ef­fec­tive re­la­tion­ship man­age­ment in­ter­face be­tween the Man­age­ment Com­mit­tee (MC) and part­ner com­pa­nies by ap­point­ing a Re­la­tion­ship Man­ager.

Yet an­other im­por­tant ini­tia­tive is our Me­dia Wing which is ac­tive through reg­u­lar cov­er­age in lead­ing IT mag­a­zines and our own in­ter­nal news­let­ter ISODA InterConnect. Fur­ther, our an­nual Tech Sum­mit 2016, held in Langkawi, was a huge hit.

To make ISODA count at the re­gional and na­tional level we must lever­age our cu­mu­la­tive strengths. Com­bined turnover of our mem­bers is roughly `7,000 crore.

Imag­ine our strength when we stand to­gether, be it rev­enues, skills, re­sources and geographical cov­er­age. To uti­lize this value and cre­ate strong rep­re­sen­ta­tion with the gov­ern­ment and other ex­ter­nal en­ti­ties, we need to have stronger part­ner­ships and col­lab­o­ra­tion.

Let me take this op­por­tu­nity to in­vite you all to at­tend the An­nual Gen­eral Body Meet­ing (AGM) of ISODA, sched­uled from Au­gust 5-6, 2016 at The Re­sort in Mum­bai. We will be elect­ing the new MC on Au­gust 5 and have lined up an in­ter­est­ing knowl­edge-shar­ing and net­work­ing pro­gram.

I would like to bid adieu by thank­ing each one of you for al­low­ing me to serve you. I wish the in­com­ing MC all the best and wish them to take ISODA to greater heights.

L Ashok, Pres­i­dent, ISODA
