Discussion Topic: Rapid Digitalization in the ITES Sector

On Friday, the 3rd of March 2022, Our Global CIO, Rajendra Jodhpurkar was invited to be a panelist on Cloud Roundtable Conversations hosted by CNBCTV18 and Microsoft Azure.

The roundtable conversation occurred around the ability of organizations to use technology to:

  • Make operations agile for hybrid work environments
  • Build robust backups in case of unprecedented disruptions
  • Implement recovery strategies to avoid business interruptions
  • Secure networks and applications from unauthorized access

Adding to the discussion around security breaches, Rajendra observed that “The weakest link is people, if you are not careful in terms of which email you are clicking, is it a phishing email and if you are not aware about it then no matter what kind of technology you have, it’s not going to help you. So, we are spending a lot of time in building that awareness.”

Our Chief Information Officer, Rajendra Jodhpurkar’s take on this critical subject has been covered in The Hitvada. Head over to this link for some interesting insights.
