EXPERT PANELIST: Frost & Sullivan Senior Partner, Sarwant Singh, President, IT and CIO – APJ&C of Cisco India, VC Gopalratnam, Serial Entrepreneur and Founder Portea Medical, Ganesh Krishnan, and Team Lead, Archana Vidyasekar

In May 2014, India entered the top 10 stock markets in the world for the first time when the average market cap of its companies surpassed that of Australia and South Korea. This entry into the top 10 heavily reflects on the economic turnaround in India, which last year suffered from currency devaluations and fragile economic situations. Thus begins India’s resurgence story as the world waits with anticipation for the economic giant to take poise.

This presentation will weigh in India’s future prospects, examining exogenous factors and Mega Trends that will drive India’s growth story over the next 10 years. This presentation provides visionary insights into the impact of connectivity and convergence on our future lives, driven by the rapid proliferation of 4 billion connected devices by 2020. These new services will create innovative applications; enable seamless access and ubiquitous connectivity in the main home, work, and city sectors. In the city environment, smart cities will create new convergence opportunities as players compete to offer smarter solutions for India’s urban architecture.

Frost and Sullivan experts will be joined by Mr. VP Gopalaratnam, CIO Cisco APAC, and Mr. Ganesh Krishnan, Founder Portea Medical, as they consider how the country will create and sustain smart cities among other Internet of Things (IOT) trends and dialogue the growth of online businesses and new business models transforming key industries.

Attend this webinar to discover:

  • The prospects, potential and capabilities of smart cities development in India.
  • The future direction of urban movement of mega city corridors and networked, integrated and branded cities, and evaluating opportunities/threats arising out of the same.
  • Insights into future demographic trends and the next generation of social networking.
  • New emerging industries, such as online retail which is growing at an exponential rate.
  • The implications arising from more than $1 trillion of expected infrastructure spending.
  • The opportunities arising from expected 4 billion connected devices in 2020.
  • The new business models such as Value for Many and implications on markets and business strategies.

This presentation will discuss emerging trends and opportunities for various industries. Stakeholders that benefit from this presentation include: public sector executives, and decision makers in the private sector.

What our thought leaders are saying:

“Understanding the inter-linkages of these Mega Trends and implications on the country, industries and cities on a micro level is imperative given India’s growth potential, which is projected to be above 8 percent over the next two years,” according to Frost & Sullivan Partner Sarwant Singh. “The growth of the Information Communication Technology industry alone is great. Estimates for India’s internet economy are projected to be nearly $266 billion in 2020. This would be 7 percent of the country’s gross domestic product. In comparison to the internet economy in developed economies, it is smaller, but still very promising.”
