Don't Wait Until it's Too Late: The Importance of Succession Planning

The importance of succession planning, the approach of an organization, identifying potential candidates for critical roles, and implementing challenges are some of the key aspects of succession planning.


  • The organization gives importance to the positions that provide well-rounded exposure to an individual and help develop leadership bench strength.
  • From a talent development lens, it is a proactive process to identify and groom high-potential employees and prepare them for future leadership roles.
  • Engagement: Critical positions require people with a higher degree of commitment and accountability.

Redefine Customer Experience by Embracing Digital First Models

Redefine Customer Experience by Embracing Digital First Models

Brands that prioritize experience tend to outperform their competitors by achieving benefits such as improved brand preference, increased revenue growth, and high customer retention rates.

In this digital economy, travelers’ expectations from travel & tourism brands have made a paradigm shift. They expect a seamless, intuitive, and hyper-personalized experience at every step of their travel journey. Travel brands are geared up for this shift and are formulating more personalized services that provide value-driven experiences. A study by PwC revealed that 1 in 3 customers would switch from a brand they were previously loyal to after just one unsatisfactory encounter, indicating the importance of delivering exceptional customer experience.

Brands that prioritize experience tend to outperform their competitors by achieving benefits such as improved brand preference, increased revenue growth, and high customer retention rates. In an era of hyper-personalization, providing a positive experience for travelers has become critical.

Constructing Meaningful Experiences that Matter

Based on their persona, each traveler is unique. From a business traveler to a laid-back traveler, a family with children to a single mother, all want to create precious memories while enjoying a much-needed break.

According to a recent analysis, the global Smart Hospitality market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 29.8% and reach $49.8 billion by 2027. The hospitality service providers may streamline the experience at every touch point, from the time a hotel is booked until check-out and the return home.

Cigniti Technologies: For How Long CIOs Would Pause the Blockchain Button?

Since the very first paper was produced about it in 1991, Blockchain has divided the technology community into three groups:

  • The Believers: Blockchain will replace governments, the world will be run by Blockchain.
  • The Non-Believers: It’s just another Silverlight.
  • The I-don’t-care-ers: I’ll just wait until someone does something.

Then in 2008, Bitcoin happened, and two more sections of people got added to the list –

  • Crypto Warriors: End of the banks. The world has changed forever!
  • Crypto Weary-ers: It’s a pandora’s box that will increase crime.

Why Blockchain is Gaining Traction?
While the reality is that Blockchain is just like any other technology that goes through the hype cycle, it has one fundamental advantage: it is what we call a “horizontal technology”. This means it has several use cases and applications compared to something like a Silverlight. More and more people are realizing the fact that there is more to Blockchain than cryptocurrencies.

‘Gartner estimates blockchain will generate $3.1 trillion in new business value by 2030’

The “Private Blockchain” world has far more use cases that can be transformational in the corporate world. Examples like supply chain traceability are already very popular and many companies are either in the process of implementing the same or have already implemented them. Similarly, secure sharing of data over blockchain networks, identity management using blockchain wallets, etc. are all use cases that are seeing a lot of traction. It is important to note though that a lot of these implementations are driven by trying to solve an existing problem rather than trying to reinvent the wheel. For example, blockchain in the supply chain is being used as a system of record rather than as a contract automation system.

Why Should Your Business Go All in on Generative AI Before It’s Too Late?

Srinivas Atreya, Chief Data Scientist, Cigniti Technologies | Thursday, 30 March 2023, 12:54 IST

Let us go back a bit in history to the first Industrial Revolution to frame the context for this question better. The revolution occurred in late 18th century England and was responsible for the rapid urbanization & industrialization of the west.

For the first time, machines were able to provide labour much more efficiently. As a result, incomes more than doubled, and England became the Industrial powerhouse of the world. By the early 1900s, more than 70% of the world’s textiles were manufactured within 40 kilometres of Manchester. The global south which missed this opportunity is playing catch up even today.

I guess we have a similar opportunity today. Generative AI is transforming our world in ways that were not thought possible just a few years ago. AI is no longer just a tool for business. It is going to be the very engine on which businesses will deliver value to their customers. The one thing that is different from the Industrial revolution is that this technology is more democratized. It is available for anyone willing to use it and makes the situation both exciting and terrifying for the enterprises.
