My real life experience is written in my new book, Yogic Innovation. A Village Boy, the eighth sibling in the family, started his journey and went to IIT and Harvard-like management colleges did advanced studies in computer applications and completed a PhD. I spent almost 21 years with an Indian MNC and worked as a CIO/CEO and IT Head with different companies.
When asked about challenges faced by technology leaders today while implementing digital technologies, he said, due to rapid changes in technology and budget constraints, lots of time we face the problem of implementation of technology.

So taking a proper decision for new technology and implementation of time is a core value, and when we take decisions, we take them in a proper manner.
These days, ransom-ware and backups also create havoc for CIO’s. But those who have updated and implemented best of breed solutions and proper cloud, on premises or colo, with the proper BCP plan and other tech, they are happy.
When asked how technology leaders can overcome the challenges faced, he said, “Investment of current technology, knowledge and team learning, a proper BCP plan, and resolution as per best of breed solution at minimum cost can help us to overcome any challenge that business is facing.”
When asked about best practices, industry trends, or advice he would like to suggest to fellow technology leaders for their successful professional journeys, he said to focus on your studies, certification, increase in team knowledge to improve business performance, and involve yourself with a team to increase core business knowledge.
