A K Nath (Rtd) DG, Centre for Development of Advanced Computing, Vinayak C Gupta ADG, Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) and Vijay Jayaraman Director, Presales Systems Engineering, Citrix will join as keynote speakers.
During the power-packed presentations, keynote addresses and panel discussions, the speakers and delegates will explore the advantages of technology shift for government and reimagine the workflow for public sector organisations in view of newer challenges posed by the pandemic.
Since the pandemic has created an unprecedented challenge and has also given a tremendous opportunity to government technology thought leadership to reimagine the way they deliver services to citizens and build IT infrastructure and implement projects in a digital-first world, the symposium will bring the spotlight on mobile government workforce, adoption of cloud and next-generation networking, secure delivery of application and data and enablement of Digital Bharat.
Also, India’s deep investment into technology and progress in the digital transformation of various government divisions, driven directly by the Prime Minister has proven to be a great boon during the pandemic. Many organizations have met the unprecedented requirement of remote working and business continuity plans on the go, thanks to their existing IT infrastructure.
However, the lessons from the pandemic necessitate a greater focus on improving data & application security, flexible workforce environment, better inter-department connectivity, resiliency, agility and workforce management.
During the powerful panel discussion focused on Building Resilient and Secure Digital India which will be moderated by Pankaj Khurana Partner, Government & Public Sector Consulting, EY, the speakers — Dr Saurabh Gupta Joint Secretary (NATGRI), Ministry of External Affairs, Amit Sharma CEO, Jammu & Kashmir e-Governance Agency, Vijay Devnath CISO and GM, Centre For Railways Information System, Golok Kumar Simli CTO, Passport Seva Project, Ministry of External Affairs, Pankaj Khurana Partner, Government & Public Sector Consulting, EY, Ashwini Rao Sales Leader – Public Sector, Citrix — will share their views on how government organisations can make their system agile and secure with the adoption of next-generation technology and platforms.
They will also emphasise on the key challenges of enabling secure access to the applications, remote desktops and data from anywhere.
