The 6th edition of the two-day GIC (Global In-House Centre) Conclave by National Association of Software and Services Companies (NASSCOM), was held on April 21 and 22 2016, at Novotel Hotel, Hyderabad.
Titled “Transforming the Global Enterprise”, the conclave provided a platform to network and highlight success stories, define new business models, share thought leadership and collectively provide innovative solutions to the emerging challenges faced by GICs in India.
This year’s Conclave that focussed on creating a sustainable ecosystem, witnessed the largest gathering for GIC leaders. A sneak peek into the future and how disruptive technologies are reshaping the enterprises was also discussed.
The GIC Conclave had an impressive speaker list that spanned across business and technology leaders. They spoke about how the future is reshaping the ecosystem, and how to develop an agile business by finding the key organization model. They also discussed innovations and executions of a company, to build its successful future.
Addressing the gathering, Nasscom President R Chandrasekhar, said, “These are protectionist tendencies and work as non-tariff measures impeding trade. We believe that more open market on both sides will help economic growth, but cannot be a one-way street where India is opening up and other countries are erecting barriers”.
CP Gurnani, Nasscom Chairman, concluding the event said, “GICs are an integral part of the Indian IT-BPM sector and have played a stellar role in contributing to the growth journey of this industry. The NASSCOM GIC Council over the last few years has helped bring diverse GICs together across verticals and geographies and built an ecosystem for this sector to grow and support the next wave of digital leadership for the global enterprise.”
