Sify Technologies participated in SME Connect series organized by Dun & Bradstreet across four major cities of Southern India in past two quarters. We started from Bangalore & Hyderabad in Q2 and later moved to Cochin & finally Chennai in November 2014.
It was an event exclusively for small and medium enterprises in respective cities which attracted various industry verticals. The event provided knowledge sharing and networking for the owners of SME firms to discuss their challenges & pain points on various parameters including SME Loans, IT / Technology adoption strategies, etc.
We participated as technology partner and created a theme “Cloudify India” which turns out to be great demand & lead generation activity by educating the SMEs on enterprise cloud technology adoption offered as a solution from Sify Technologies. We also announced an exclusive promotional offer of 25k INR credit for using our Cloudinfnit.com services to get a hands on experience of what we presented them in the event.

Both of them were also part of a panel discussion on “Indian SMEs: Making the journey from $1 mn to $100 mn mark”.
The event witnessed over 400 leading SMEs across four cities of Southern region. This event series was a combination of leadership and industry keynotes, speaker sessions and panel discussion. It also hosted the release of SME Cluster report from D&B for each city as well.
