Collaborating for Success of Engineering & Design in India

The success of LCA Tejas, one of the finest fighter aircraft, attributed to its Architect, Designer & Project Director Dr. Kota Harinarayana. He was a keynote speaker at the NASSCOM Design and Engineering Summit. Following are the highlights: India’s first fighter jet was HL-24 Marut. After more than two decades of neglect & disregard of the Indian Aerospace Industry, the LCA program started with an initial outlay of Rs.500 crore in the early 1990s. We have the World’s third-largest domestic traffic and will be the third-largest – USA and China being the top two – in combined domestic-international travel. We are the fourth largest Airforce in the world, but until recently have been importing turbo-pass aircraft (only one among the BRIC nations). Years of sanctions by t...

Doctor of the Future

Recently in Bangalore, NASSCOM CoE – IoT & AI hosted a Roundtable which featured doctors as panellists who deliberated on the benefits of digitalization on the medical profession in general, not shying away from distilling the hype either. Where are we in Digital Healthcare? “We know where to go but not necessarily how to get there”, proffered Dr Arvind Kasargod, Group Medical Director, Cloudnine Group of Hospitals, also the moderator of the session. Are doctors resistant to technology adoption? Dr Kasargod doesn’t think so and offered a simplistic explanation: “the stethoscope would never have seen the light of day if that had been the case”. He believes that technology adoption should create value for all participants, “We also need to ask the question to doctors and patients alike –...

The Future of Engineering R&D

Engineering research and development (ER&D) has always been a critical investment for organizations, because regardless of the products or services that they offer, it fundamentally augments their ability to innovate in developing and improving their offerings that can strengthen the organization’s position in the marketplace. This is critical for the survival and profitability of enterprises. Traditionally, ER&D being a core area with IP implications, most organizations chose to keep it as an in-house activity in order to build and grow their own engineering capabilities. However, due to several shifts in the market and influenced by the success of IT outsourcing which has been around for several decades, organizations are now showing a preference to outsource their ER&D. A ve...

Transitioning into an Era of Smart Vehicles

The automotive industry is witnessing a shift from product centricity to experience centricity, thanks to an increasing emphasis towards telematics. Essentially, telematics refers to the monitoring of a vehicle and its performance on a continuous and remote basis. This is making vehicles more intelligent, engaging and connected, thereby allowing them to integrate into our daily lives – much like the smartphone. The automotive telematics market is pacing rapidly and is expected to cross USD 98 billion by 2026. Three of the largest segments in this market are: Consumer Telematics, Vehicle Diagnostics & Insurance Telematics. The New Gen Automotive Experience The demand for consumer telematics is primarily driven by the need to transform the user experience through advancements in driver a...

India on the World Map: Engineering & Research as India’s North Star

In the last 30 years, India has strongly established itself as the IT hub of the world, garnering nearly 55% market share of the global services business (as of 2017-18), exports at $137 billion in FY19, and employment doubling in a decade to 18 million by 2018. All through these golden years, India’s academia and talent have consciously aligned itself to this rapid growth and seized opportunities. Even talent from other engineering disciplines such as biotechnology or mechanical oriented towards IT. But here is the most pertinent question, “what about the next 30 years?” The next 30 years cannot be imagined linearly – soon it will not be about revenues reaching $200+ billion or adding 30 million more people to the industry. The “Law of Accelerating Returns” proposed by renowned American I...
