Here is the line-up for the roadshow, to give you a better sense of what to expect:

- 11 workshops – The workshops will be in-person events to take these interactions to the next level. These would be spread across 6 cities – Delhi, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Chennai, Mumbai and Pune. So, if you are in any of these cities, we are looking forward to interact with you.
- 2 Conclaves – These conclaves are larger events with pre-defined agenda and time for networking. The first conclave is happening on the 17th of December in Bengaluru.
- Hackathon – Time to pull up your sleeves and showcase your nifty skills. We will be announcing the format of the event shortly.
“We find that the IT industry is absorbing almost half of all of the analytics jobs. Banking is the second largest, but trails at almost one fourth of IT’s recruiting volume.
It is interesting that data rich industries like Retail, Energy and Insurance are trailing near the bottom, lower than even construction or media, who handle less data. Perhaps these are ripe for disruption through analytics?”
Mr. S. Anand, CEO of Gramener, wonders aloud.
