About


Digital India is no more a campaign. It can be called a double-sided national level movement. On one hand the Govt of India aims to ensure that government services are made available to citizens electronically by improved online infrastructure and by increasing Internet connectivity or by making the country digitally empowered in the field of technology. On the other hand, large, medium and small organizations are embarking on the Digital Enterprise journey to increase productivity, profitability, market shares, and most importantly customer delight. It is estimated that in 2017-18 fiscal over 23% of the $60 Bn spent on ICT in the Indian domestic market was towards Digital. And that in the coming years this share is only going to go up.

Dataquest ICT Conference & Awards 2018 will focus on 5 big issues – IT Infrastructure & Cloud, Security, Bigdata & Analytics, and emerging but very hot solutions like IoT and AI. These are compelling technologies but continue to throw up challenges before technology and business decision makers in governments and organizations. The conference aims to get the practitioners share their experiences and help chalk out the future path for Digital India.
