INFOCOM, an initiative from the house of ABP was started in 2002 as a forum that would demonstrate India’s quest to be the IT superpower, and has today turned into a forceful and dynamic event that sets the pace for development in the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector, bringing potential partners together and helping the industry connect with associates and customers. INFOCOM today is one of the largest congregations of ICT professionals, buyers-sellers, corporate leaders, academics, visionaries, and policymakers in India.
Over the last 14 editions of the event, INFOCOM has evolved to be an important platform that focuses on the convergence of Business, Technology and Leadership elements that are essential for driving India to the next phase of growth.
INFOCOM, the annual event in Calcutta comprises a three-day Conference and brings together the best global minds in Technology, Business Strategy & functions and Leadership. However, in our endeavour to reach out to varied audiences across the globe, INFOCOM also provides various platforms in the form of Roundtables, Forums, Awards, Workshops and others across the years and across various locations within India and beyond.
Now in it’s 15th year, INFOCOM is most delighted to announce the second edition of INFOCOM 2016 – NEW DELHI chapter. There will be a one-day business-technology-leadership conference between July 7, 2016 at the India Habitat Centre. The theme for INFOCOM 2016 will be “TRANSFORM l DISRUPT l TRANSFORM”.
This year INFOCOM will enter its 15th edition. Since 2002, the year of its inception, INFOCOM has been built around a ‘Theme’ each year. Every year a new theme is researched and selected upon by considering the market scenario, economy trends and popular sentiments. The theme for INFOCOM 2016 is TRANSFORM l DISRUPT l TRANSFORM.
The cycle of transformation and disruption has continued since time immemorial.
We have witnessed immense transformative changes, with the global economy going digital, the advent of the big data phenomenon, and the boom of countless mobile applications which have completely transformed the way we function and transact. When applications like Uber and Ola Cabs came into being, they disrupted the conventional modes of using hired cars, followed by the mwallet phenomenon which completely took the banking sector by storm. This act of disrupting by inventing and reinventing is a continuous cycle.
Today is all about taking action for a sustainable tomorrow, tomorrow is best designed when there is a healthy disruption. Thus in order to grow we need to transform. Transform, for ease of doing business, for empowering individuals and for building organizations.
India being the foremost developing nation with abundant resources and insurmountable capabilities has the potential to lead the way in transforming business and economies and ways of living. With the help of the flourishing entrepreneurial ecosystem India can transform and disrupt the economy. Thus keeping the current trend in mind we have chosen the theme- Transform l Disrupt l Transform at INFOCOM this year.
