Gramener at CapGemini Startup Day

Gramener was among 11 star­tups in­vited to Capgemini’s Startup Day 2016, Bangalore. The event, held on November 21, was a plat­form to ex­hib­it the of­fer­ings by these en­ter­prises be­fore the Capgemini lead­er­ship, their Centre of Excellence teams as well as oth­er em­ploy­ees. Also present were rep­res­ent­at­ives from some of Capgemini’s cli­ents. The oth­er star­tups at the event op­er­ate in areas such as IoT, Blockchain ser­vices, VR, AI, Machine Learning, among oth­ers.

Gramener’s Chief Sales Officer, Mayank Kapur, made an el­ev­at­or pitch to high­light key in­form­a­tion about the firm and our port­fo­lio. The pres­ti­gi­ous names among Gramener’s cli­en­tele evoked an evid­ent re­spon­se from the audi­ence.

The key part of the event was show­cas­ing our body of work at the booth. The eye-catching video run­ning on our screen played a big part in cap­tur­ing at­ten­tion of the par­ti­cipants. In par­tic­u­lar, Gramener’s Trade Analytics dash­board built for India’s Ministry of Commerce and Industry was very well-received.

Audience in­terest var­ied over a wide spec­trum. Some among the stra­tegic lead­er­ship were look­ing to ex­plore av­en­ues of part­ner­ship with Gramener. They were keen on un­der­stand­ing the pos­sible en­gage­ment mod­els.

On the oth­er hand, func­tion­al unit or cli­ent ac­count heads were look­ing to un­der­stand Gramener’s of­fer­ings, and how Gramener was dif­fer­ent Qlik Sense, Tableau and Spotfire. These dis­cus­sions in­vari­ably grav­it­ated to­wards the rich­ness of visu­als, in­nov­at­ive data rep­res­ent­a­tions, cus­tom­isa­tion, and abil­ity to handle large-scale data.

Another as­pect that drew a pos­it­ive re­spon­se was the fact that Gramener’s solu­tions in­cluded the con­sult­ing ele­ment, and thus would be bet­ter aligned with busi­ness re­quire­ments.

The self-service abil­it­ies of oth­er visu­al­isa­tion products on the mar­ket was an­other fo­cus point; vis­it­ors un­der­stood how that cus­tom­er seg­ment was dif­fer­ent from Gramener’s.

Participants with tech­nic­al lean­ings were curi­ous about the tech­no­logy stack un­der­ly­ing our Gramex pro­duct. Most were sur­prised that this was a home-grown plat­form, and did not make use of R, SAS, SPSS etc. un­der the hood.

An event like this leaves you amazed at the ex­tent to which in­nov­at­ors in India are stretch tech­no­logy, and more im­port­antly, ima­gin­a­tion.
