The India Digital Conclave is driven by the idea of providing a unique learning experience on the exchange of insights and
practical knowledge around the establishment of new ways of working and collaboration as
well as the transformation of business models for the digital age.
The new reality, Digital Business, is creating opportunities for innovation, growth and competitive advantage. Digital Enterprise architects will lead the change, leveraging emerging technologies to create new business models.
The India Digital Conclave will be a unique event in Bangalore, where the best minds in the digital world, leaders in the Enterprise Architecture. strategists and IT Innovation teams will meet face-to -face to join their efforts to co-operate in addressing the most topical issues of the Digital space.
A digital leader in today’s enterprise is a power position. The power to grow business lines, incept new workstreams, accelerate
the implementation of future.
This power comes with a responsibility of ensuring success. So how will a digital leader ensure a solid foundation for success?

Manufacturing is arguably the greatest industry in the world: for every $ 1 spent in manufacturing, another $1.4 gets added to the economy. In India, this sector has witnessed steady growth, primarily driven by improving the economy, government initiatives like Make in India and increasing domestic consumption. The sector contributes 17 % of GDP and is poised to grow to 25 % by 2022. The current wave of technology transformation is changing the horizon for most of the sectors. Surprisingly though, the manufacturing sector has not been on the forefront on the digital transformation journey.
Manufacturing lines across the world have relied on feedback system to operate and monitor their production processes continuously. Over the years the feedback system has evolved from visual judgment to monitoring of signals like current or voltage to oversee the process, followed by direct measurement of process data using electronics and signal processing. But humans have always remained at the centre of this evolution. Even today, an operator deciphers the feedback information to recognize deviations and reactively take actions. This requires operators to undergo a lot of training, have a good experience and fundamental understanding of the underlying physical laws which govern the processes. This results in a lot of process variations due to varying skill of individuals which creates inefficiency in the system. Secondly, a tremendous amount of business data and processes remains tied up in legacy systems, ranging from servers to customer applications, lacking accessible interfaces. Further, there is no visibility of plant information across functions which hamper manufacturing intelligence. Challenges like growing complexity of operations, greater mandates for the accurate fulfillment of customer needs and rising cost of manufacturing are posing newer challenges to operation managers.
With the advent of IoT (Internet of Things), Cloud and AI (Artificial Intelligence) capabilities, these realities are all set to change. The revolution has already begun, and smart manufacturing is the new norm. These technologies allow us to improve our action-ability, efficiencies and follow a more predictable manufacturing without disruptions. Let us understand how the trio of IoT, Cloud, and AI will change the entire paradigm of operation management. Smart sensors based IoT networks connect disparate devices and systems and enable different machines to talk to one another. Manufacturers can now monitor equipment & systems in every plant, aggregate the data they gather, benchmark, compare and analyse the data sets. This brings us to the next enabler which is "cloud". The massive volume of data generated by smart sensors needs to be stored and computed in real time to generate insights. Cloud enables this data storage with an on-demand computational power to solve dynamic business problems in changing process scenarios. IoT based smart sensor data over cloud-based computing integrated with AI can open doors to immense possibilities.
Imagine a smart plant in which real-time information is captured to monitor the products across the supply chain, which is analysed over the cloud to generate specific insights. These insights can power an AI-based digital assistant with deep customer knowledge, who can provide "Specific leads" to quality, planning or sales team to take the right decisions and respond to specific concerns. The impact of this digital transformation on manufacturing is two-fold. On the back end, machine learning used and applied to data coming in from the manufacturing process, help enhance the efficiency of a manufacturing line, reducing downtime and improving performance. On the front end, it can be used during the manufacturing process to detect defects, ensure compliance with evolving customer needs and maintain consistency in manufacturing. It will enable businesses to evolve into the next-gen Smart Manufacturing.
While "Smartness" is often associated with machines and sensors, I firmly believe, it is the human beings who will become smarter by exploring the new frontiers of technology. To conclude, smart sensors, cloud, and AI will enable manufacturing companies to keep producing in a way that is more transparent, more efficient, of higher quality, more compliant and more profitable. The savings are real, and benefits are many. Tata Steel has already embarked the journey of Digital Transformation. Process data digitization, roll out of online services, and launch of several collaboration platforms have been the highlights in the current fiscal. While these might be just initial steps in a long journey of transformation but it undoubtedly reflects the strong commitment to building a sustainable future. With proof in the pudding, manufacturers across the world are getting ready to enjoy the sweet treat.Speaker Profile

India’s big data generation is increasing exponentially, driven by continued growth of internet usage, social networks, proliferation of smart phones, as well as the digital initiatives and structural reforms undertaken by the government. At the same time, incidents of data crimes such as data hacks, data leaks, data tampering, identity thefts are on the rise, which are costing Indian organizations and consumers more than $30 billion annually. What can Individuals, Enterprises, and Governments do about it?Speaker Profile
