Commenting on the partnership, Mr. Venguswamy Ramaswamy, Global Head, TCS iON said, “Technology is playing a pivotal role in driving Digital transformation in the field of education. Today’s learners need a Social First approach to learning and ICSI has taken this path for their students. This will help ICSI to cater to the changing needs of the learning community in a more relevant and adaptable manner. We look forward to the partnership with ICSI as we use our technology prowess to make institute’s rich content easily accessible to a larger section of the student community. We are also confident that the institute’s digitization efforts will go a long way in retaining its position as one of the premier educational institutions in India.”
CS (Dr.) Shyam Agarwal, ICSI President said, “ICSI has embarked on a ‘digital transformation’ journey. Newer tools are being used to disseminate ‘knowledge’ to the members and students in the form of webinars, live webcasts of programs and seminars. With the ever-changing needs of the profession, standardization of delivery has become the need of the hour.
