Restyling Innovation Models – Panel Discussion

I was part of a panel discussion at the venerable Seshadripuram college on the topic of “Restyling Innovation Models” in a VUCA world.

The panel had some eminent names like:

  • Mr. Bhaskar Bakthavatsalu, Managing Director – India and SAARC Check Point Software Technologies (India) Pvt. Ltd.
  • Dr. Devika P. Madalli, Professor, Documentation Research and Training Centre
  • Dr. Y.S. Lakshmeesha, Chief Coach, Sports Authority of India

Moderated by Dr. Pratima Jagadeesh, Director, Crecers Academy of Management and Education.

It was a great session to share how fast the technology world is changing and how companies like appZUI are innovating to stay relevant. With the panel coming from such diverse backgrounds, it was a treat to listen to some of the insights the eminent panelists had. The kind of opportunities for digitization in security and sports was mind boggling.

Great times ahead!

Future & Java & Me

I was invited to give a talk on Future & Java & Me to Engineering students in SJCE, Mysore. It was fun and exciting to look at the future for me. How Digital technologies is/will fundamentally redesigning the business landscape is mind boggling.

Key points from the talk:
-Google Deepmind’s AlphaGo/AlphaZero & Sophia the AI Robot are examples of ML/AI coming of age and becoming prime time
-Access to scalable cloud computing power and on-the-go mobile computing has enabled emergence of new age business models
-In this exciting future, Java still rules the roost as a technology to invest in. It is indeed testimony to the design thinking of the Java’s inventors, especially James Gosling
-As a student, who either wants a job or be an innovator, one should focus on developing strong fundamentals such as mathematics, algorithm/data structure, solid hands-on programming, structured & creative problem solving. Above all the one should focus on developing practices to master one’s mind and body

To be part of these kind of game changing solutions is what excited us to create appZui! 3 cheers to the future where digital and real are indistinguishable…Real-Digital!👍

PWA & Ionic 101

Unless you are living on Mars, you would have heard about Progressive Web Apps (PWA.) It is a promising way to build hybrid apps which do not need app store route. Here is a 101 guide to beginning your PWA journey with Ionic. By the way, did I mention, we love Ionic for building awesome hybrid solutions?

  • Enabling Ionic app into PWA: link
  • Another cool site to help generate your PWA ready site from your existing website in few clicks. You’ll be required to provide service worker implementation: link
  • Site to give information about what your current browser can support from a PWA standpoint: link

We’ve been experimenting with PWA in MoYo*.  At the outset, we are thrilled at the possibilities of blazing quick startup experience to the users and cutting out the pain of publishing through app stores. There will be a different post about our experiences as we continue our investigation and weigh the pros and cons.

*MoYo is a Customer Engagement platform used by brands to “Engage Better!”
