ISODA Tech Summit To Help Members Identify Latest, Relevant Technologies
-B Swaminathan
ISODA, the software association is conducting their flagship event Tech Summit in February. Rajeev Mamidanna, TechSummit 7 Chairman and Vice President – ISODA explains the much-awaited event.
B Swaminathan (Swami): Please explain the theme of the ISODA TS7? How are you justifying the theme with the event?
230Rajeev Mamidanna (Rajeev): With the changing technology landscape, there is one association called ISODA that understands the need for its members to understand this change and sets the platform for the adoption of this change. And with change comes the challenge of getting skilled quickly, re-structuring and re-aligning their teams and ramping up the business to exceed expectations. TechSummit has been that marquee platform of ISODA to help its members identify latest and relevant technologies, network with the technology vendors on how to ally with them and use each other’s strengths to ramp up business and take it to the next level.
Hence the theme.

Swami: What are the sponsorship avenues and what is the update on the sponsorship?
Rajeev: We are inviting sponsorship from a varied set of technology providers. The solutions covered will be around Datacenter technologies and Cloud, Advanced Security, Hyperconverged Infrastructure, Collaboration etc. The response from potential sponsors has been really good. We have got multiple confirmations from sponsrs already and we have a healthy funnel of potential sponsors to get onboard.
Each sponsorship level has their individual benefits and some of the early birds have been able to grab a lot of them.

Swami: What are the new aspects in the TS7? How is it going to be different from the previous years?
Rajeev: We have chosen a wider range of solutions that are relevant in today’s time. Also, we have thought of exciting openings, put a lot of stress on sponsors to speak about use cases and also have a plan to have better interaction between the sponsors and the members than ever. All partners will appreciate and take a lot of inputs from it. Its a new exciting country and obviously, for most of the members Ho Chi Minh is a new city. So the excitement levels are all the more high.

Swami: How good it will be helpful for the members participating in the event?
Rajeev: We have a wider set of sponsors in terms of technology. Hence it will be beneficial for partners to look at allying with newer solutions providers. We have some exciting speakers who will touch upon the market conditions, whats good, whats bad and how to grow business overall. On top of that, we are planning to have more interactive sessions between the members and the sponsors.

Swami: What are the special initiatives for sponsoring companies for the event?
Rajeev: More opportunities for the sponsors to spend time with the members, Maximise the time for presentations
Getting them to spend time on use cases for better understanding, involving the sponsors more in technology exchange with the members
