Google is architecting a fiber connectivity network. Dell bought EMC to create an end-to-end hardware and software powerhouse.

Ashutosh Kapoor, VP – Partnership, UiPath Inc. said, “RPA is Robotic Process Automation and a common enterprise RPA starting point is Finance and Accounting. This includes Accounting, Payroll, Accounts payable, Accounts receivable and Financial Planning & Analytics.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bharat Sharma, Director - Presales (India & SAARC) - Cambium Networks in his presentation said, “Everything has its importance. LTE, 5G can be a very good backhaul option for wi-fi indoor and outdoor coverage. But the second option of partners and wireless service providers is to offer this as wi-fi-as-a-service or connectivity-as-a-service. Wi-fi is the prime wireless reality of today.”

 

 

 

 

 

Ranjan Kumar GM - Schneider Electric IT Business India said, “Schneider always talks about IT being on and everything on real time. We also ensure that customers and their infrastructure is also on.
