Sachin Panicker, Chief AI Officer, Fulcrum Digital

“National Technology Day celebrates not just technological advancements but also the widespread accessibility of innovation. In this era, enterprise AI serves as a pivotal force, driving the digital transformation of businesses across all scales and enabling them to flourish amidst heightened competition. This underscores the significance of AI in the ongoing evolution of technology, revolutionizing how businesses operate and innovate in the modern landscape.

The widespread adoption of enterprise AI is leveling the playing field, enabling even MSMEs to stand toe to toe with global competitors. Through intelligent automation, predictive analytics, and personalized insights, AI equips these companies with the tools to optimize operations, enhance productivity, and deliver unparalleled value to their customers. Beyond its capacity to optimize business operations, AI today also emerges as the great equalizer, bridging gaps between individuals and communities like never before. It transcends boundaries, providing ease of access to information, education, and opportunity, thus paving the way for inclusive growth and empowerment.

As we commemorate National Technology Day, let us recognize the transformative power of AI and share enthusiasm for the continuous strides being made in space, contributing to India’s tech journey. Let’s also champion inclusivity, shaping a future where everyone benefits from this progress.”

Ravi Chhabria, Managing Director, NetApp India

“India is rapidly advancing its usage of new-age technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI). As revealed by NetApp’s 2024 Cloud Complexity Report, India is leading the global charts with over 70% of companies already in the process of adopting AI projects, as opposed to the global average of 49%.

While we see a readiness among enterprises to accept these technologies, we still need a heavier push towards education and skilling in deeptech. Education and mentorship play an incomparable role in nurturing innovation across the tech sector. To train them young, we’re committed to empowering teens through initiatives such as the NetApp Data Explorers program, equipping them with critical data skills with the aim of providing opportunities for exploration and problem-solving.

Our effort towards mentorship extends through NetApp Excellerator, where we engage with deep-tech startups, offering them our expertise in intelligent data infrastructure solutions. This, coupled with access to our resources, helps them drive advancements and innovations in the field.

Together, we’re shaping a future where youth and innovators have the tools they need to excel.”

Geetha Ramanna, Director, Software Development and Network Security, Sophos

“On this National Technology Day, we reflect on our nation’s digital evolution and the need for attention on the pressing issue of cybersecurity. As we march towards innovation, the specter of ransomware attacks and data breaches grows ever more ominous. The scarcity of cybersecurity experts strains those already in the field, leading to exhaustion and missed opportunities. This is backed up by Sophos’ Future of Cybersecurity in the APJ survey, which revealed that 83% of cybersecurity professionals are affected by burnout and fatigue. However, amidst these challenges, there is a solution in education and mentorship. By equipping the next generation of tech professionals with essential skills and guidance, we can bolster our defenses against cyber threats and pave the way for a secure digital future. Let us join forces in safeguarding our nation’s technological advancement, one mentoring relationship at a time.”

Juveri Mukherjee, Global Head of HR, Aurionpro Solutions

“When industry veterans share their knowledge and expertise with newcomers, the synergy that flourishes promotes innovation. National Technology Day is a great opportunity to highlight the importance of such collaboration and mentoring in the tech industry, as this guidance from mentors equips youth with tools to navigate evolving landscapes. Moreover, cross-generational knowledge exchange preserves wisdom while fostering collaboration and diverse perspectives that spark breakthroughs. I strongly believe that embracing mentorship and entrepreneurship propels innovation’s future in tech.”

Prashanth Chunduri, Sr. VP, Strategy & Alliances/Partnerships; Managing Director, Neilsoft

“India is making huge strides in the manufacturing and ER&D space, with the government’s initiatives such as Aatmanirbhar Bharat, Make in India, and Digital India encouraging a significant boost in domestic production.

Towards making our PM’s Vision of Make in India successful and contributing to making India a global manufacturing hub, we at Neilsoft, are developing Technology/IP-led solutions tailored to the needs of the Indian industry, focusing on improving quality and productivity. We have identified India as a major focus for us with our Pune-based facilities dedicated to developing Quality Inspection solutions for Manufacturing companies and Energy Management Solution for large facilities like factories, industrial buildings, hospitals, data centers, etc. to reduce energy consumption. We also believe that Digital Factory technology has the potential to transform Indian Manufacturing companies. We are already engaged with several companies to devise and implement these solutions in India.”
