Tata Comm Partners CII To Set up Center For Digital Transformation

The Confederation of Indian Industry or CII, one of the oldest industry bodies in India, and technology solutions major Tata Communications have joined hand to set up a center for digital transformation. The center would help, guide, advise and help organisations in their journey towards industrial digitalization.

The newly formed CII – Tata Communications Center for Digital Transformation will act as a catalyst to accelerate digital change for the nation by bringing the industry together to spur adoption of mobile, cloud, Internet of Everything and champion the cultivation of new talent that will drive innovation forward.

India’s digital infrastructure is coming to life through a combination of policy making and technological innovation. The advent of Industry 4.0 has brought a greater emphasis on digital financial transactions, GST (Goods and Services Tax.), and the need for enhanced preparedness for cyber security, etc., further amplifying the need for digital transformation by Indian corporates for survival in a highly competitive global market.

The nation’s technology industry is valued at around USD 150 billion, while the Digital India plan is predicted to boost GDP by up to USD 1 trillion by 2025. The CII – Tata Communications Center for Digital Transformation is a collaborative industry initiative that will provide a clear vision and standards to support digital disruption.

As the principal partner to the CII, Tata Communications brings leadership and expertise in providing customers and partners with world-class digital infrastructure and services. Across industries, cloud is now the default deployment model for any new enterprise application. Tata Communications’ IZO offers a robust, one-stop cloud enablement platform, enabling the scale and speed businesses need in order to transform. With the Internet of Things (IoT) identified as one of the key opportunities for transformation in India, Tata Communications also has relevant credentials such as its Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN), based on LoRa technology and global MOVE – IoT Connect solutions portfolio.

Vinod Kumar, Managing Director and CEO, Tata Communications said: “Digital infrastructure is the springboard for societal and national development. Together with the Confederation of Indian Industry, Tata Communications will champion a digital first economy, bringing together key policy makers, business voices and technology innovation to spark connections that unleash digital transformation for the good of people, communities and businesses.”

Chandrajit Banerjee, Director General, CII said: “Digital transformation enables an organisation to better compete in a constantly changing economic landscape as technology evolves. Adoption of Digital Transformation is not an option but a necessity for Indian corporates. The CII – Tata Communications Center for Digital Transformation would help Indian corporates towards adopting digital technologies to enhance their competitiveness. With its heritage in providing Indian cities, utilities and businesses with world-class digital infrastructure and services, Tata Communications is well placed to provide strategic leadership to guide the digital transformation of India.”

The CII – Tata Communications Center for Digital Transformation aims to be the expert agency in guiding organisations and enabling organisations by assisting to build systems of intelligence by bringing in more personal computing, helping them adopt the intelligent cloud and reinvent their productivity and business processes.
