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

  • 9 webinars – These webinars (remote) will be conducted by industry experts and are aimed at increasing analytics awareness, providing a way for aspirants to interact with industry practitioners and getting their tough questions answered.
  • 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. You can register for the first conclave here.
  • 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.
