Aligned with the Digital India initiative, The Centre for Digital Transformation under the aegis of Confederation of Indian Industry organized its flagship program, the Digital Transformation (DX) Summit & Awards 2019 at New Delhi.
The Centre for Digital Transformation principally partnered by Tata Communications and associate partnered by DELL Technologies plays a pioneering role in introducing concepts and establishing digital transformation systems. It is also a platform to bridge technology providers and technology users efficiently and create a trust for better handholding in this process.
Ajay Prakash Sawhney, Secretary – Ministry of Electronics and IT, Government of India (“MEITY”), in his address mentioned that “India has a great future and potential to explore and increase the usage of technology in building a Digital India. He said that the maximum potential for the growth through digital technology is now from the user industry rather than the technology companies.”
