‘A dynamic IT landscape demands a lot of investments’


Commitment as a Tech Head  
The key to making an impact as an IT leader is to come to the table as a business leader who happens to be running a technology team, rather than purely a technologist waiting to receive requirements to fulfil. IT is no more a supporting function but now it is looked upon as a business enabler that should be used for enhancing business revenue, profit etc.


Experience Cell
 It is really a difficult challenge especially in an end user organization to keep the IT team trained on latest technology. We work with our IT partners on newer technologies to deliver initiatives and embed our teams along with partner teams to execute projects and in the process pick up the nuances of new technology. 


Key Priorities
We are not authorized to divulge details on our investment plans and priorities due to company policies but our priorities are in line with industry trends and our investments are aligned to our priorities. 


Adaptability to Organizational Changes
 It is easy to say but very difficult to adopt an IT landscape which is dynamic and flexible as it requires lot of investments. The only key to success is to go and adopt opex/cloud model and bring desired flexibility &agility for delivery of infrastructure to support business. 


Investment Plans for FY 18-19
We are heavily investing on further enhancing our information security, digitization, digitalization and creating a digital value chain especially around our manufacturing facilities.
