NASSCOM India Leadership Forum 2015 and its journey...

The 3 days at NASSCOM’s India Leadership Forum help answer these questions and many more, when the industry comes together to share, deliberate and imbibe. They learn (often UN-learn too) and benefit from stepping back a little, once in a year, only to march ahead in full force.

Just after the 2014 Leadership Forum got over, we realized it was time to start working towards the 2015 summit. “How should the next edition look like,” we thought. “Like a fest – a festival of tech and so much more,” came the unanimous answer. Besides great speakers, exhibitions, gadget demos, pitching and discussions, we felt NASSCOM’s India Leadership Forum needed to make a mark and leave a trail. A trail for industry players to tread on…

Before we began to visualize the summit that would eventually make industry players ‘visualize’ the digital future, we took a quick glance at NASSCOM’s initial days and the eventful journey it has travelled over the last 25 years.

Back in 1990, software and services sector was limited to a handful of players who shared a common dream to make India the outsourcing hub, some day. Before anyone knew, baby steps began turning into bold and bolder leaps, both in terms of value addition to the global customers and emergence of India’s IT growth story! Soon enough, India was poised for a big revolution. All along the way, it was NASSCOM that walked every step with industry players on an uncertain path, and helped ascend the software and services scene in India with one mission – to discover best of ideas and bring the most futuristic minds on one platform. NASSCOM’s relevance and focus evolved as fast as the sector itself from initially building India’s software story to gradually positioning India’s value adding capabilities to the world.
