Bangalore: Dell and CIO Association of India (CAI) today announced the launch of e-Mavericks, an initiative to nurture the e-commerce ecosystem by providing agile technology and access to angel investors. The platform is the first-of-its-kind providing an opportunity for e-commerce companies to meet and discuss business and technology related challenges and opportunity.
E-commerce in India has been growing rapidly with the establishment of hundreds of new e-commerce companies. With the growing competitiveness in the sector, it has become imperative for e-commerce companies to give due consideration to the implementation of robust IT infrastructure in their respective organisations.
Ravindra Krishnappa, one of the 50 participants at the launch event said, “This is a much needed initiative that brings in scale thinking on technology for entrepreneurs. Not only did the entrepreneurs discuss online and ecommerce related business issues, but, there were quite a few relevant points made on opportunities in openstack, supply chain optimisation etc.”
Ranjit Metrani, Director & GM, Geo Head – South, Dell India said, “Dell is known as the pioneer of the e-commerce concept, when in 1996, it opened website for business. Today Dell is a large integrated IT Company and has provided technology solutions to reputed companies such as Flipkart, MakeMyTrip, eBay and Shutterfly among many others in the online space. We provide our customers with future ready technology which enables them to provide not just technology solutions but derive business benefits.”
Sudharsan R, Commercial Marketing Head, Dell India said, “Our past successes with customers in the same space have given us the confidence to launch eMavericks in an effort to support the growing needs of the e-commerce ecosystem. Dell has historically served as not just a technology enabler, but a business enabler for enterprise customers, and we want to carry forward this vision through the programme”.
Amarinder Singh, Chief Involvement Officer, CIO Association of India said, “Being a CIO in the e-commerce sector is certainly a challenging task with the core functions and customer satisfaction in the sector highly dependent on the effective functioning of IT infrastructure. eMavericks is a first-of-its kind platform for ecommerce players to engage in technology related discussions related to the sector.”
