CIO Axis: How important is enterprise digital transformation? How is EverestIMS helping enterprise clients to be ahead of the curve?
Satish Kumar V: Today, the phrase ‘digital transformation’ has become ubiquitous and pervades into all realms of an enterprises value chain. Digital transformation is often viewed as an implementation of digital technologies into all areas of business in order to build more sustainable relationships and better understand the needs of customers. At EverestIMS we help our clients to counter the competition by basing our delivery framework around what we call the “Digital Transformation Triad” namely, Customer Experience Digital Transformation, Operational Process Transformation and the Business Model Transformation which we use to rapidly change business paradigms in India and across the world. In fact, digital transformation is now considered to be business transformation. Organizations need a deep-drive partner to help them evolve in addressing the rapidly business landscapes. If one chooses to ignore this, it can be at the enterprises’ own peril.
CIO Axis: Shed us some light on your newly launched/upgraded product portfolio. What are the verticals mostly your products are catered to?

CIO Axis: AI and IoT are the technologies which will power the future. How are you betting on these technologies?
Satish Kumar V: AI is going to be a game changer. In fact it is already making its presence known in many business strata. AI when viewed from a different perspective it can be actually seen as a forward sequel to the data mining efforts that numerous enterprises have been ingenuously using in the recent past. What is exciting is the specific business use-case scenario for different verticals and how they are driving the different flavours of AI. Each industry presents a unique challenge which results in a different derivative of an AI solution.
Our team has been working on a deep framework roadmap that will integrate AI into the heart of our offerings. In fact we had kept our sights on this target and look forward to delivering the new avatars of our products with the power of AI integrated into them.
With “smart” being a keyword and devices becoming online IoT is gaining ground every day. However what we have observed is that IoT is about building visible and tangible differentiation for the enterprise customers / end user experience. Right now there is very little standardization or pre-defined approach to this and it will continue to be explored in unique ways by each major player. Infraon IoTMS is uniquely poised to fill the void that will develop as users seek to align IoT devices to security, audit and control.
