An insider’s view of technology at Tata Sons

Pankaj Mishra August 7, 2017

With nearly 100 companies and over $100 billion in group revenues, India’s Tata Group is shaping the future of jobs and several industrial sectors in the country. When Tata hired Gopichand Katragadda as its first group chief technology officer in August 2014, the mandate was to identify and incubate new businesses that could potentially become $100 million opportunities in few years. Since then, the group has been through a rollercoaster ride, especially with changes at the top.

In this podcast, our first in a series of conversations with technology leaders shaping the future in India, Katragadda talks about the future of jobs within Tata Group companies and also shares the progress of newly incubated businesses led by technology.

If you want to learn more about how the Tata Group is shaping the future of its businesses, this podcast will help you with the inside view.
