    • It is projected that urban India will contribute about 75% of the national GDP in the next 15 years. With the rapid rate of urbanization and depleting resources, it is essential for India to rethink its strategy to see how it can best optimize the capabilities of its physical infrastructure.

      By leveraging global best practices in smart city development and ICT (Information and Communication Technology), India is in a unique position to leapfrog a few stages of growth to become a global superpower.

      In 2015, the Indian government announced an ambitious plan to develop 100 smart cities, with a commitment of spending $7.27 billion over the next five years. The infrastructure overhaul would include creating intelligent transport systems, smart grids, smart waste management, and smart water grids/solutions.

      In this presentation, we will look at the roadmap for Indian smart cities, along with the anticipated challenge of meeting capex requirements and the dire need for devising innovative business models to make “Smart Cities in India” a success story.

      Tune in for insights on the following:
      • Learn about the Indian government's $7.3 billion smart city mission aimed at applying smart solutions to improve infrastructure and service delivery in Indian cities.
      • Discover the key challenges with respect to regulation, funding and private/public partnerships.

    • Online B2B Market: Applying Lessons from B2C to B2B Online B2B Market: Applying Lessons from B2C to B2B Team Lead Archana Devi Vidyasekar and Consultant Pramod Dibble Recorded: Nov 19 2014 3:00 pm UTC 52 mins
    • Predictions from the early 2000s for B2B eCommerce markets were grossly exaggerated. According to the wisdom of the day, we were supposed to see between $4.7 trillion and $7.3 trillion of sales by 2005. In 2013, volume for B2B eCommerce sales was $550-600 billion, or $0.55-0.6 trillion; less than 10% of estimates eight years later.

      Despite sobering reality following wide-eyed optimism, the B2B eCommerce market has once again surfaced as a topic of interest. As B2C eCommerce becomes more and more dominant, and technological capabilities improve, it is natural to expect that B2B eCommerce providers would learn to adapt those products and services to their own markets.

      Attendees should expect to learn:
      ·What is the global market outlook for B2B eCommerce?
      ·Which geographic regions have exhibited the most growth, and which are ripe for development?
      ·Which industries lend themselves well to B2B eCommerce?
      ·What types of B2B eCommerce exist, and which are poised to become dominant?
      ·What aspects of the traditional supply chain are going to be disrupted by an increase in online channel volume?
