As part of the next phase of digital transformation, heavy focus is emphasized in the area of IOT and Data analytics, to harness value from the data available within the organization, in addition to the data generated from the IOT platform.

Since insiders have more access to information, what kind of processes do you have in place to prevent unauthorized use of information? How is T V Sundram’s cyber security strategy going forward?

Several unique lessons during this journey, just to name a few:

• Focus on operations based on data research, rather than traditional human approach dependency
• Change management and skill management to adopt to newer technologies
