First ,He started with history of computers and the evolution made by them.

There are two transformations in the history of computers. First is when computers are discovered,the time around 1945-1975 at that time he was studying at IIT madras.At first the computers are used in huge laboratories to do the data processing.Later these computers are used in solving some easier tasks. this has made the life of a human being to be so easier.

The second Transformation is about the invention of Internet. The dot com bubble burst in the year 2000 has made IT field to face a tremendous growth.Infosys started in 1981 with only seven members now holds lakhs of employees now. This is a huge achievement by us,he added also that Internet was a efficient tool to learn .After these two transitions there will be another transition which will take place after 30 years of time.

Today Internet was connected only to computers but in future Internet will connect everything from camera,electric appliances vehicles etc.CII logo

as you all know Nandan Nelakeni is appointed as UIDAI project’s chief. This project will make a Digital India with all those corruption being removed everywhere.

IT has the major importance in India . Every job created in IT will create another 5 jobs in the related industry like retail,finance,supply chain etc .
