The keynote session by Ashish Dhawan (managing director – India and South Asia, Juniper Networks) set the tone for the event on the opening day by tracing the emergence of the platform oriented business model and its influences and implications on the technology industry at large. His core argument centered on the empowering nature of the platform with its ability to connect, provide services and not just limit itself to a tangible product. He went on to highlight how platforms are drawing value from network effects, i.e., the platform becomes more valuable when more people use it. Most importantly, they are beating products each and every time.
Ashish alluded to platforms of the future like City as a Platform, Smart Grid as a Platform, Education as a Platform and Healthcare as a Platform. He stressed on the shift brought about by the platform model.
