Infosys Confluence Summit brought great leaders and industry analysts together for a two-day event.
Infosys Confluence Summit hosted business leaders, IT, industry analysts, advisors, and customers from around the world to a two-day summit. Sting performed at the Masonic in San Francisco.
Keynote speakers inspired partners, delegates, and customers to “Be More,” and this was the dominant theme throughout the summit.
Vishal Sikka, CEO of Infosys, kicked off the welcome address following former U.S. Secretary of State, General Colin L. Powell, sharing stories of leadership from his career in the army and diplomacy. “Failure is a teaching experience, leadership is all about accepting responsibility,” said Powell.
During an inspirational session, “Born to Code: Our Children in a Digital Future” with Chairperson of Infosys Foundation USA, Vandana Sikka and CEO of Code.org Hadi Partovi, both speakers expressed their passion for computer science education in U.S. schools. The key messages break the stereotype “computer science is only for boys,” and build awareness and create diversity in the field.
“Inspire, advocate, volunteer, and funding are the four approaches we can do to make a change and a difference,” said Sikka.
From financial banking to automation and embracing artificial intelligence, the breakout sessions and keynote speeches were a chance for attendees to get inspired, develop new ideas, and build relationships.
“Technology can enable us to be more and do more,” said Pravin Rao, COO of Infosys, during the last keynote of the summit.
