CONNECT 2018 : THEME
If technology evolves so rapidly and it is also extremely difficult predicting it, how can organizations survive and adapt to these changes? With the proliferation of technology, organizations are increasingly seeing their competitor lists grow multi-fold because of two prime reasons; new entrants coming out with innovative ideas and other industries getting into each other’s line of businesses. Industries are also exploring re-skilling initiatives for their employees as newer technology means new skills. And not just organizations, Governments are also constantly on the lookout to see how best they can serve citizens and a single solution for most of the complex questions has been ‘technology’.
With citizens being termed as digizens now, Government also strongly feel the need for technology to reach out to them effectively and efficiently. Technology has now become an integral part of all our lives and we cannot possibly imagine performing most tasks without them. Without technology, we tend to become disabled and that’s an indication of the degree of interdependency between man and machine. We need to adopt technologies in the safest way possible. Keeping the above, CII Tamil Nadu is organising the 17th Edition of CONNECT 2018 with the theme “Accelerating Progress: Inclusive Digital Growth” between 27-28 September 2018 at Hotel Taj Coromandel, Chennai.
This year, the Connect 2018 would be focusing on the following areas:
- Smart South - Governance & Growth
- New Technologies, Disruptive Solutions & Trends
- Mainstays of Digitization: Connectivity, Cloud and Security
- Connecting the dots - Creating an inclusive startup environment?
