Turn IT up

Today we are experiencing a life very different from the one we left behind before the pandemic. Digital transformation, which was a buzzword before, became reality, practically in an instant. And now, as we move ahead, it’s time to accelerate that digital agility to the next level. And to do this we must rethink and reimagine the way technology interweaves with business in the new normal.

We must embrace new ways of working, equip ourselves to deal with hybrid work, and be prepared to adapt to an evolving world. A world powered by technology that can connect, secure, and automate – people, things and experiences. And it is when we do this that we ensure a future that will be more flexible, inclusive, and secure than ever before. 

Now is the time to be bold and build a better world together—a brighter, more inclusive future for all. Let’s turn up the social impact and the business outcomes. Let’s take our world-class solutions and accomplish even more. Let’s take everything we’ve learned and TURN IT UP.

Welcome to Cisco Connect India. A platform for leaders, visionaries, and industry experts to come together and turn up the innovation!

Beyond Horizons: Technologies that will change the world

The future always feels like it’s running late. Human imagination works harder than human enterprise, but at any given moment, technologists and scientists are redesigning future technology and the world around us in big and small ways. The rate of progress over the last half century has been abnormal – staggering in fields as broad as computing, medicine, communications and materials science.

Let's put our futurologist’s far-seeing glasses on and discuss some of the most exciting future technology that will change our world. Let talk about technology beyond horizons on telemedicine, robotic surgeries, from artificial neurons to bionic human beings, from IoT to AI to hybrid cloud to future of work etc. We would like your imagination to take flight and give us your realistic perspective, as leaders, where you think the world in heading, in mid to long term, in the above context.

The Agility Paradox

Every business is looking for agility, an approach that enables organizations to be responsive, nimble, and poised to seize opportunities in an era of seemingly constant change. And technology is at the core of enabling this agility and dynamic business models.

But at times, businesses are singularly focused on this one trait but often ignore the fact that businesses which stay agile in the long term are those which have a solid, flexible and secure infrastructure. Unless we connect, secure and automate all pieces of the of the underlying backbone it will only lead to short term agility. Businesses need to master both the elements agile business models and strengthening the IT infrastructure.
