The event plans to promote the rise of Digital India, keeping in mind the Prime Minister’s vision of uniting India under the Digital banner.

The summit includes talks by important dignitaries like Ravi Shankar Prasad, Honorable Minister for Electronics and Information Technology, India; Hemant Dabke, Vice President of Strategic Industries domain at SAP Indian Subcontinent; Sanjeev Gupta, General Manager, Microsoft India; HE Nadir Patel, High Commissioner for Canada to India; Smt.

Speaking to BW Businessworld about the event, Hemant Dabke said, “The Digital India Vision backed by strong execution is the backbone of new India. It is the binding program and the technology enabler for all the other flagship schemes such as smart cities, make in India and startup India. To me, it is not a program but a journey wherein innovation in technology solutions will pave the way for an inclusive growth story for India. SAP salutes the spirit and is committed to partner with the Indian Government in realising this vision.”

In an exclusive statement to BW Businessworld, Dr Lovneesh Chanana said, “The success of digital India will be a key enabler for India’s digital journey. Initial strides have been encouraging and we now have a platform ready to collaboratively work towards the next wave of innovative program management, industry-government collaboration, technology solutions and policy environment. Digital India has the potential of being the backbone for holistic management of all development oriented programs. SAP stands committed to collaborate with all stakeholder groups to ensure the success of this transformational program”.

The event promises to be a landmark in making the public aware of The Digital India mission and the importance of the same.
