The energy here is so palpable that one can almost touch it. The buzzing precincts of San Francisco Marriott Marquis suddenly seem incredibly electric. Nearly 800 delegates, including our clients from around the world, industry analysts, advisors and our ecosystem partners are gathered here, for Infosys Confluence 2015, to deliberate, discuss and debate how technology can make it possible for all of us to push the limits, make our businesses stronger and do all that we can imagine. Indeed, Be More.
While this overwhelming participation and celebration stands testimony to the three-decade strong relationship we've forged with our stakeholders, there's certainly more to it. I believe it is the dialogue Infosys has started about the new next-generation business challenges that these industry leaders are trying to get their arms around. Enterprises today continue to be challenged by the traditional concerns around efficiency and growth, while at the same time, they are witnessing fundamentally new kinds of problems for which there are no best practices yet. Infosys recently embarked on a journey to address these dual concerns through the Renew-New strategy. The renewal of the known - bringing massive, transformational improvements to our traditional services by bringing continuous innovations through automation, repeatability and AI. And simultaneously, focusing our creativity and imagination on the unknown - completely new kinds of solutions, open-source based, next-generation elastic platforms to solve the new kinds of problems. In other words, be the next-generation technology services provider. And what better place to see all this innovation in action than at Infosys Confluence 2015!
