Micro Focus Technology Horoscope 2020 will help demystify the future of the IT industry
The IT Industry’s contribution to India’s GDP had grown to 7.7 percent in 2017-18 from 1.2 percent in 1998. According to NASSCOM, the sector aggregated revenues of $160 billion during this period; the IT & ITeS industry grew to $181 billion in 2018-19.
As digital capabilities improve and connectivity becomes more prevalent, technology is quickly and radically changing nearly every sector of India’s economy.
This is encouraging enterprises to procure tools that bridge the gap between existing and emerging technologies to innovate faster, with less risk, in the race to digital transformation.

Women in the lead

Also, Technology Horoscope 2020 will have breakout sessions aimed at empowering enterprises with capabilities to harness the power of Predictive Analytics, Enterprise DevOps, Hybrid IT and Security, Risk & Governance.
The key highlight of the event, however, is a session dedicated to women in technology. A recent study by Intel revealed that in India, women now constitute 30 percent of the overall workforce in the field of tech.
And while 57 percent women in India study STEM in college compared to just 4 percent in the US, the numbers don’t tell the whole story. Once these STEM-educated women enter the workforce, the attrition rate is high and growth opportunities limited.
Even though the landscape for Indian women technologists seems tough, there are powerful, dedicated trailblazers, who have charted a path to success despite all odds.
The Women in Technology session is a tribute to these trailblazers and an attempt to celebrate the success stories of Indian women who are leading the pack with hard work and zeal. It will also feature a discussion on how women bring in expertise that make teams and work more productive and innovative.
Participants will also get a chance to sit in for a fireside chat with Genefa Murphy, Chief Marketing Officer, Micro Focus and get a glimpse into her insightful journey to becoming the CMO of a large IT enterprise.
The chat will be followed by a discussion on the lack of women in STEM and the white spaces for women to cover at the basic levels of coders, developers etc.
An interactive session ‘Making the Unconscious, Conscious’ will feature key women in the technology domain who have made their way to the top or achieved significant roles in their career. The women will share their experiences and insights on breaking the glass ceiling in the tech industry.
