New Delhi; 01, June 2016: A galaxy of business leaders and experts attended the Business Connect Conclave event hosted by Dun & Bradstreet in association with Spinnaker Support and Star Business Solution in New Delhi, and after thought-provoking sessions, they discovered that the most efficient way to maximise output in a dynamic business environment is optimising cost without any adverse impact on people, products and processes for sustainable development in the long run. Identifying smart strategies for business cost optimization has become the need of the hour. In this context, effective use of ERP systems has turned out to be a critical component of cost optimisation strategies. These findings were released on 13 May 2016 at the Business Connect Conclave event hosted by Dun & Bradstreet in association with Spinnaker Support and Star Business Solution. The inaugural event grew out of the need for Indian organisations to share “smart strategies” for optimizing business costs.

Inaugural Event: Business Connect Conclave 2016

Dun & Bradstreet’s new research was introduced to key decision makers including CIOs attending the Business Connect Conclave 2016. Research findings show that 70% of the attendees are currently running SAP applications with the remainder running Oracle applications or technology.

“The Conclave was tremendously well received by attendees, exceeding even our lofty expectations,” stated Nigel Pullan, Vice President of EMEA and Asia-Pacific for Spinnaker Support Ltd, “Enterprises are taking a closer look at the value received from their software support and maintenance spend. Although technology models have changed dramatically over the last 25 years, the maintenance model has largely remained the same — except it has become more expensive. Increasingly more companies are looking to Spinnaker Support to reduce maintenance costs and redirect investment towards more innovative areas like cloud, mobile technology, and big data.”

The Business Connect Conclave 2016 event included a panel discussion titled, Smart Strategies for Business Cost Optimisation — An Indian Perspective. Panelists included CIOs and CFOs from Jindal Steel and Power Company, Canon India Private Ltd, Micromax Informatics Ltd, and UEM India Private Ltd.
