Persistent Systems & NASSCOM to Launch Advanced Online Community at NILF 2016
The National Association of Software and Services Companies (NASSCOM), in partnership with Persistent Systems today announced a new online collaborative experience for attendees at its 24th annual NASSCOM Indian Leadership Forum (NILF). The platform will provide a digital experience with all the videos, blogs and discussions being hosted in one easy to access site. NILF, whose theme this year is “The Smart Enterprise – Transformative to Disruptive,” will launch the site this week at the conference in Mumbai as part of multiphase rollout of its new online community initiative designed to promote NASSCOM’s mission to work with its members to help build a growth-led and sustainable technology and business services sector in the country.
A key element of successful communities is to provide interactive features to drive engagement, for both members and non-members alike. NILF #NASSCOMmunity will provide multiple online forums with sub-forums covering an array of topics. From vertical industries, systems integrators and regionally-based forums (Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai and Pune) to human resources, legal and management subjects, attendees at the conference and those following from other locations will be able to network and actively engage in ways never seen at previous conferences. Each forum has a moderator, to help guide the discussions. Members and non-members can submit questions, which other users can then answer, creating an active community while also encouraging non-members to join. The community also provides valuable information and support to smaller companies looking for guidance across a range of topics to which they may not otherwise have access.
Sangeeta Gupta, Senior Vice President, NASSCOM, said “We are pleased to partner with Persistent Systems to create a robust online community to leverage the power of a rich digital community. This will make collaboration seamless, encourage new members and leverage the diverse knowledge base of the NASSCOM community”.
Munjay Singh, COO of Persistent Systems, said, “As it embarks on leading the way the world views India innovation and business, NASSCOM community is a great demonstration of the power of digital transformation. They have put in place a sophisticated platform for helping members work smarter and encouraging more organizations to join while offering a valuable resource for companies. We’re excited about this first phase of the community as it will offers attendees of NILF a level of engagement they’ve never experienced before.”
