3. Main topic/theme of connect was SMAC (Social, Mobile, Analytics, Cloud) and ICT (Information, Communication, Technology).

4. Google India Managing Director Rajan Anandan presented very nice presentation on where India is as of 2013. Few points were interesting as we are 6 yrs behind China in terms of internet users and e-com transaction. 65% people in India will use mobile phone for their primary Internet usage by 2015. So far in India has 150M Internet users etc.

All over it was good including exhibition, companies were showcasing their new products and they were quite informative. I remember still one product of Intel showcasing electric consumption monitoring system. You can monitor electric consumption in different bay/floor area. That was innovative and pretty cool if you plan to save electricity bill for your company. Many companies are investing in mobile app or they had pretty cool products as TCS has built POS and CTS Social Intranet portal and some other company had CRM, HRM on mob device.
