NOIDA, India - March 12, 2020 - PRLog -- ET CIO Annual Conclave 2020 presented a platform to get a first-hand experience of what the early adopters of these technologies think. It was a gathering of CIOs from varied industries, who are closely monitoring the impact of disruptive technologies like AI, Blockchain, IoT, Machine Learning, Cloud, Big Data, Data Science, Cyber Security and more.

The event kickstarted with a Keynote address by Air Chief Marshal (Retd) BS Dhanoa. He shared the experiences from his journey in the IAF and how great leadership is pivotal in developing skills and creating a winning attitude.

After these enlightening sessions on the vulnerabilities and the X-factor that technologies bring to the table, it was time for the highly-anticipated - panel discussion on VUCA.

Agenda: Strategies & Approaches to Navigate the VUCA World

Moderator: Yashvendra Singh, Executive Editor, ETCIO

I will quickly cover the highlights from each panellist in the order they spoke:

Panellist 1:Mr Sanjay Narkar, CTO, IDFC

• Banking highly affected due to these uncertainties due to the external factors like geopolitical, economic, technological and societal.
• VUCA Makes it ambiguous & doesn't give a chance to prepare, Examples - Demonetisation, UPI, etc.
• The solution to these challenges is making the banking processes more agile and be always prepared to respond to customers needs more proactively.

Panellist 2: Mr Arvind Sivaramakrishnan, CIO, Apollo Hospitals

• In Healthcare VUCA is not new and they are relatively more prepared
• The conversation around these disruptors have definitely gone more viral in these last few years
• Technology is helping healthcare become mature and deliver on expectations of 24*7*365 to bring down the diagnosis time and be more effective

Panellist 3: Mr Ripu Bajwa, Director & General Manager– Data Protection Solutions, Dell India

• In this new world, VUCA has become a constant threat & reality
• Companies are having to endure some pain to deliver on long-term successes

Panellist 4: Mr Hariharan Iyer, Group CIO, Raymonds

• We are over bombarding ourselves with data and systems without focus
• Companies are unable to segregate, prioritize and identify the failure zones clearly
• CIO will have to understand where the failure patterns are so that they can act FAST

There were multiple other sessions and I will be updating you of all the details in the next few posts.
