A New Beginning: Operating Remotely and Autonomously 

The TCS Innovation Forum is a premier, invite-only event that engages business leaders globally. In 2020, the TCS Innovation Forum has been reimagined into a virtual format through a series of events. Inspiring speakers share their perspectives and advice on both how to navigate the working world and innovate with new business models in a period of uncertainty.   

The next virtual event in this series, A New Beginning: Operating Remotely and Autonomously, features Regu Ayyaswamy, Senior Vice-president and Global Head, Internet of Things, and Engineering and Industries, TCS, and Krishnan Ramanujan, President, Business and Technology Services, TCS. They will discuss how the need for reimagining business with remote – and eventually, autonomous – operations is essential to becoming a growth leader and future-ready enterprise.

Helping guide clients on their transformation journeys, TCS’ IoT framework Bringing Life to Things™ enables companies to move from applying advanced analytics for monitoring or failure prediction to self-managed systems that can self-heal, self-configure, self-organize, self-optimize and self-learn. Bringing Life to Things creates exponential value for businesses and positions them for growth. An executive panel will share their experiences and best practices in realizing their vision for remote and autonomous operations.

Guest speaker Professor Kouhei Ohnishi from the Global Research Institute, Keio University, Japan, will share the future of remote communications powered by haptics technology – a novel concept called the ‘internet of action’. Haptics as a field of research is very relevant for everything from remote surgery to remote operations. A TCS Pace Port™ Tokyo team will share its view of how robots and humans can both interact and co-work to enable autonomous operation across industries. 

As a service to our valued client and partner community, the premier TCS Innovation Forum 2020 series will run from July through September 2020. Topics cover areas from autonomous operations and 5G to the fundamental shifts, critical success factors and changing consumer behaviors across industries. The upcoming virtual events are as follows:
