Mumbai, June 11, 2018 – Capgemini today announced the 10th edition of Tech Fiesta, its nationwide technology event designed to showcase innovation and Intellectual Property (IP) in cutting-edge technologies of the future that provide business benefits to customers. Themed as “Intelligent Enterprise: Unlocking Newer Possibilities”, the 2018 edition of Tech Fiesta was inaugurated in Mumbai by Ashwin Yardi, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Capgemini in India and Group Head of Industrial Automation, in the presence of Michiel Boreel, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of Sogeti, Capgemini’s technology and engineering services subsidiary, and other members from Capgemini’s leadership team in India, as well as Dr. Arvind Tilak, CEO of Ascent Intellimation. Over 20,000 people from Capgemini’s ecosystem of employees, partners and customers are expected to attend Tech Fiesta 2018, between 11 and 18 June, across five cities in India.

Speaking on the occasion Ashwin Yardi, COO of Capgemini in India said, “Technologies such as big data, artificial intelligence, automation and machine learning are increasingly shaping business and industries as a whole. At Capgemini, we believe that effective innovation requires an outcome-oriented approach and discipline ─ we call it applied innovation. We have invested in a rich portfolio of innovative offerings, coupled with sector expertise and technology capabilities, to transform enterprises that are constantly looking to stay ahead of the curve. Tech Fiesta brings together our ecosystem of stakeholders, including customers, partners, start-ups, academia and employees, to explore our solutions and capabilities to unlock new possibilities for enterprises across the globe.”
