Awards @ NASSCOM ILF 2017

25th Edition

Come 2017, it would be 25 glorious years since we staged NILF for the very first time, which has come to secure its place as our flagship event over decades of sustained delivery excellence. In the recent years, the change has been pivoted on digital, its multi-disciplinary impact on the industry, and how successful organisations have levered this to strike optimum balance. This edition � the twenty-fifth in the series � is themed on, Digital Inflection Point: Re-imagine not Re-engineer. The intent is to present rich case studies on how global and Indian companies are leveraging these shifts, and how the technology provider�s ecosystem can be a disruptive partner. The outcome will be two-fold: outline a call to action for participants, and leave them with actionable insights.

The 25th Edition

'Digital' has transcended from being sceptically viewed as a fad trend to being a glorified x-factor in business to, in fact, now becoming the success imperative � the unarguable phenomenon that must seamlessly reflect in your end-to-end value chain, all while it transforms that very value chain.

That, Digital is disruptive and is the way forward to achieve non-linear outcome-based growth is now well accepted, copiously documented and keenly adopted across industry verticals. However, most companies still struggle with the nuts and bolts, the tactical actions and underlying changes to successfully achieve digital at scale. This is increasingly the focus of CEOs and their leadership teams, including the boards.

NASSCOM India Leadership Forum (NILF), is the apex body�s flagship event which attracts 2000+ participants from far and wide to attend this global conference, which really is the melting pot of latest thoughts and thought leaders alike. For all those who have been following us, the last two editions have predominantly been about the �what� of this ubiquitous idea behind Digital. We believe, arguably, that next few years will be the inflection point for digital as it moves from being merely mainstream to becoming a fully scaled play. In such a scenario, success will be driven by going beyond piecemeal digital "wins" to making bold moves and more fundamental changes in how businesses are managed and goods and services are delivered. In order to help the leadership effectively address this massive shift, at the twenty-fifth year of the NILF, the intent is to build a stronger focus on the "how" aspect and essentially deliberate on "Re-imagining for Digital @ Scale". We will strive to really drill down to the elements to make Digital real for you and your organization.

During the 2-day event, global thought leaders, technology evangelists and industry veterans will not only deliberate on the Megatrends and disruptive Technologies but also define the Imperatives, expound on the Enablers and decode the Dilemmas through an optimal mix of plenaries, masterclasses, panel discussions and experience zones. Rest assured, there will be plenty for you to muse, reflect and absorb as we navigate through the following 25 themes:

As a participant, you are expected to walk away with pragmatic actions/ building blocks that you could meaningfully apply to deploy digital @ scale in your organization.
