The Next Big Enterprise Opportunities from India

This is a special plenary power panel on main stage themed "Future of Enterprise Products  from India", which will comprise Mohan Kumar (NVP), Shekhar Kirani (Accel) in conversation with Klaas Oskam (Signal Hill).

The conversation would be focused on emerging trends amongst B2B / Enterprise Start-ups. What are the horizontal, vertical and emerging new Technology areas where Indian B2B Start-ups are seeing success? What are areas of relative strength and differentiation versus enterprise powerhouses such as the US and Israel? Whilst B2B start-ups are getting more investor attention and funding in last 2 years, very few have hit scale with not a single Indian SaaS start-up having exceeded $100m in revenues. Why are Indian SaaS / Enterprise Software start-ups taking longer to get to scale and what is holding them back from reaching $100m in revenues in 5-7 years that a number of the leading US SaaS start-ups are able to achieve?

This panel will try and find answers to both the areas that SaaS start-ups could focus on as well as how once product market fit has been established, they can hit scale faster in the process putting Indian on the map as an Enterprise Products power house.

Technology is shaping the world in a different way right now than we’ve ever seen. People are starting to think differently about how they learn, how they get entertained, how they work and how they shop. Walmart has this tremendous legacy. We’ve got this real purpose. We save people money so they can live better. The line between shopping and living is disappearing. Customers want value and convenience. They want to go to the store or just sit in their couch and order. They want orders to show up in their porch in two days, and sometimes they order online and pick up at stores.

Homo Sapiens v.2
Are we the same species that walked the planet in 2007? Over the last 10 years, Artificial Intelligence has crept in and transformed our lives – often, unnoticed. And now, AI is integral to us. In Homo sapiens v.2, Atul Jalan looks at how AI is leading the most significant change our species will undergo – maybe the most momentous after the opposable thumb. We are fast approaching a scenario where evolution will not be nature-led any more, but will be custom-engineered by man. In short, AI will soon bring man the ability to play god. This is going to change us. The question is, what is it going to change us into?

Digital Transformation is unlike any management project we are trained for. We do not know Where to Start, Time & Money to allocate, and How to Track Progress. Where do you start – by hiring (or re-training for) new skills, investing in platforms, or upgrading your systems to capture more data? The risks and promised rewards are outsized. How much is hype vs. reality?  How much time and money is required to see results?  What is the ROI?  How to Prioritize Digital Investments for your organization?
