Collaborative partnerships drive disruptive innovation
To remain persistently relevant, businesses and institutions must innovate and constantly improve their products and services. But business innovation and continuous improvement are not solo sports; they require partnership, cooperation, collaboration, and engagement. TCS clearly understands this, and has anchored its own innovation labs to what it calls a "co-innovation network," an environment for sophisticated IT research in leading-edge technologies across various domains. Speakers at the TCS event approached the topic of innovation from a variety of angles and perspectives, but the question they were all trying to answer was pretty much the same: How do you take a business idea and turn it into something that customers will pay for? The follow-up question was similarly to the point: How do you go about creating an environment in which innovative ideas blossom and flourish?
