Every era in human civilization has been highlighted by technological benchmarks. Over the past few decades, thought leaders, men of science and entrepreneurs have all been in the pursuit of bettering prevalent technologies, to make them accessible and simpler. Emanating from this belief, Infocom initiated its tryst with Information and Communications Technology (ICT) in December 2002, to represent the changing face of the Indian IT industry and also a whole gamut of emerging opportunities that lie untapped and unexplored.
Organized by India’s leading business magazine- Businessworld and India’s most respected IT body - NASSCOM, in Calcutta, it is the largest congregation of IT specialists, key policymakers and industry leaders. Its purpose is to integrate the disparate hardware, software and telecom segments into a unified platform that covers ICT at a broader level.
To showcase emerging opportunities in the ICT sector while offering a high-quality networking platform for the largest congregation of ICT specialists, policy makers and industry leaders both nationally and internationally.
Theme : Innovate to differentiate
Innovation – the successful exploitation of new ideas – incorporating new technologies, design and best practices is the key that enables businesses to compete effectively in the global environment.
The challenge for companies is to bring to the market a stream of new, improved and added-value products and services that enable the business to achieve higher margins and thus profits to re-invest in the business.
Taking a leap forward from Infocom 2005 which discussed the much larger role that IT can play in everyone’s life- everyday, Infocom 2006 completes a full circle as the biggest names in the world of ICT, thought leaders, policy makers, visionaries and innovators will converge to discuss the importance of Innovation to stand out in the ever changing world of ICT.
The Indian IT-ITES and Telecom industry is already set on the path of Innovation since given the complexity & variety of the Indian consumer profile-household or enterprise - Innovation is today the lifeblood for the sustained growth of the global ICT market.
Infocom 2006 will bring together the biggest names from the ICT industry in India and overseas, top corporates, government officials, academia and thought leaders, to identify and provide ideas and thoughts required for an innovative ecosystem which is essential for expanding ICT penetration in the developing countries. This effort will be followed up through a series of well-designed seminars and panel discussions by industry experts, investors, government and user communities through 25 sessions over a period of 4 days across 2 parallel tracks. This is the first ICT exposition of its kind in the country that prides itself in providing a cohesive ecosystem to support entrepreneurship and help move great innovative ideas from concept to reality.
