Prateek: How will the integration of IoT and medical equipment change the face of the medical system in the country?

Sumana Iyengar: IoT would have maximum impact on end consumer wellness by the use of health wearables and self-monitoring devices. Healthcare, which has traditionally been an in-person thing, would see more and more remote consultations for trivial diseases and OTC drug prescriptions. The health care professionals would rely on the wearables to get the vitals and the whole consultation done remotely. Perhaps we will see an end-to-end system that integrates the patient, wearables, and the hospitals/doctors as one ecosystem. IoT-enabled devices also would lead to more proactive disease management due to sensor-enabled devices which not only are internet-enabled but also have monitoring and alerting capabilities.

Prateek: Why should startups invest in cloud computing? And how digitalization can help them grow?

Sumana Iyengar: Adopting cloud addresses the business demands of faster compute performance and scalable resources at a fraction of cost. Cloud eliminates the capital spend on maintaining and running data centers in-house. Cloud infrastructure is battle-tested, runs at a global scale, and provides reliability at a lower TCO.

Digital innovations and initiatives can provide access to newer insights into the customer behavior and business vertical.
