Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), an industry-led non-government business association in India, has launched CII-Tata Communications Centre for Digital Transformation’s “Digital Maturity Appraisal” at the CII Annual Session 2019 on Friday. This digital transformation self-assessment tool will help Indian industries navigate today’s business landscape as it continues to undergo rapid changes, led by digital technologies which are transforming the way systems, processes and people work.
The assessment comes as an online tool available at www.ciicdt.com for enterprises to judge the maturity of their digital ability and start a successful digital transformation journey.
“Digital Maturity Appraisal” has been created to help the Indian industries envisage their digital transformation roadmap by undergoing self-assessment against the six dimensions of digital vision and strategy and will provide participating organisations the ability to benchmark their current level of digital operations against the national average of their industry peers.
Launched in 2018, CII-Tata Communications Centre for Digital Transformation (CDT) is powered with the responsibility of enriching and accelerating the technology journey of its members and provide the best of its kind training and consulting services to organisations, thereby improving the efficiency of their service delivery and set standards of excellence.
Mr. Sumeet Walia, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, Tata Communications and Chairman, CDT states, “India is in the midst of digital transformation. Regardless of the scale, size or sector, every business is undergoing digitisation to improve business efficiencies. However, lack of access to guidelines and a clear road map remains key barriers to digital transformation. The launch of Digital Maturity Appraisal is a significant move towards bridging this gap and understanding the current level of technology adoption in India.”
“As the world embraces the revolution 4.0, emerging technologies such as 5G, Artificial Intelligence and blockchain, among others, will transform business efficiency and effectiveness in ways enterprises have not witnessed before. While the gravity of this transformation may vary among firms of various sizes, serving various functions and industries, CDT, under the aegis of CII, has been formed to address various challenges to digital transformation, seize the upcoming market opportunities, and prepare enterprises for a dynamic future,” says Mr Rudramuni B, Vice President & Center Head, Dell EMC, and Co-Chair, CDT.
To recall, in last month CII has signed a 3-year MoU with the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) wherein startups in electronics and IT sector, being incubated by MeitY, will be brought under the scope of CII’s Corporate-Start-up Business Connect Platform which will help them connect with industry for mutual benefits and gaining access to international markets.
In late 2016, CII had launched ‘Startup Mentorship Circle’, a common platform for large corporate houses and startup entrepreneurs to share their experiences and ideas.
