Being an experienced leader, share your opinion on how the adoption of modern technologies like AI and ML has impacted the marketing industry and how is your company riding the technology wave?
We see the adoption of Artificial Learning (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) across all industry verticals significantly changing the decision-making process.
With respect to the Marketing industry, we feel it has helped understand the end customer better, providing insights to the customer about services products, and most importantly, simplifying the decision-making process.
Considering the current pandemic, what initial challenges did you face, and how did you drive your company to sustain operations while ensuring the safety of your employees?
We are a cloud-born company, so basically, from the beginning, all the data, systems, and applications we used have always been in the cloud. Pandemic was a key catalyst for increased Cloud adoption for us as well as for our customers.
The biggest plus point for us was that there was no loss of productivity within the delivery team and sales team while working from home, and we were able to provide the best-in-class experience to our customers without any issues.

Start early. Getting hands-on experience is the best way to learn. Build on what you are passionate about and deeply care about. Make sure you adapt your products and services to keep customers in focus and evolve your business model as adopted by your customers.
