InfoBeans Innovation Day 2019: Creating Innovation and WOW Together
We are extremely delighted to share with you that we had successfully organized our maiden technology conference – InfoBeans Innovation Day 2019 on 9th March 2019 at our headquarters, IT park, Indore.
At InfoBeans, we believe in creating WOW in whatever we do. WOW is not just a word for us, it’s a part of our culture. Innovation Day 2019 is a reflection of our culture that carries innovation and collaboration as the integral values in its DNA.
We were overwhelmed to see the response of the attendees at the conference as our audience included guests from the US who judged the innovation contest, members from the investor community, brilliant minds from the student community and last but not the least InfoBeans team members from Indore and Pune.
The Keynote Session
Our President and co-founder, Mitesh Bohra delivered the keynote speech soon after the event introductions. He shared his views about the endless possibilities of innovation and progressing technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, IoT and Automation.
The keynote address was followed by presentations and interactive demonstrations at the booths led by our R&D team on cutting-edge technologies like RPA, Blockchain, CICD, Storage, Alexa Integration, I0T, Machine Learning and more at the event.
Being a leading technology company, we have always believed in progressing with cutting-edge technology and including it as part of the delivery. Going ahead with this thought, we shortlisted ten teams out of thirty-five entries that we received initially for setting up presentations and booths at our innovation conference.
All of these ten teams had their booths set up and five out of them also showcased interactive presentations on avant-garde technologies like Blockchain, AI, CICD, RPM etc. The following teams conducted presentations and had their booths set up as well.
To give you a deeper understanding of different technologies at the conference, here are the different presentations and topics:
Robotic Process Automation
Right after the keynote session, our first team- The RPA team led their way to the stage for sharing their findings about the groundbreaking technology of Robotic Process Automation. The team also presented a demo application called TFRS (Team Members Financial Records System) to showcase the benefits of RPA technology for businesses and how it could help them to increase efficiency while reducing manual efforts for redundant processes

The New Technology of Trust
Our blockchain team initiated their presentation by sharing how blockchain technology can address the currently existing transaction issues via transparency and trust. They also explained the meaning of the technology and its use by demonstrating a sample application called WalNet. This application showcased how blockchain technology can be implemented to execute an international transaction by ironing out the challenges we see in the traditional fund transfer methods.
