Prateek: How has been the journey of 30 years in the industry, what challenges did you face, and how did you overcome them? It is very difficult to stay relevant in a business for 30 years, how did you do that?

Virender Jeet: I have been associated with Newgen since its inception and have witnessed the company’s growth throughout these 30 years. Being in India, we chose a different path as becoming a product company was not easy.

At Newgen, innovation is at the heart of everything we do, which has helped us stay relevant in business.

Prateek: What role does Artificial Intelligence play in helping businesses to scale their operations, and which are the industries that are especially benefitting from AI implementations, which is one of the company’s largest domains?

Virender Jeet: Enterprises are increasingly adopting artificial intelligence (AI) as itenables themtoscale automatically and provide a differentiated customer experience. For instance, banks can process loans instantly by analyzing the risk with an AI system in real-time. Such instant gratification results in customer delight.

There has been substantial traction for AI-enabled solutions and capabilities in sectors such as BFSI, healthcare, industrial automation, and others. The BFSI sector, in particular, has been one of the pioneers in adopting AI. AI plays an instrumental role in various financial processes such as credit scoring, fraud detection, signaling, etc. Using AI, financial institutions can optimize collections, validate credit card transactions, manage health insurance coverage checks, analyze vehicle photographs for fraud claims, etc.

Prateek: Please tell us about some strategic pain points that can be eliminated using AI-based solutions from a business operations perspective. How is Newgen providing a platform to businesses for building an accessible and affordable AI infrastructure which otherwise is considered to be time-consuming and costly for businesses who try to implement it from the scratch?

Virender Jeet: Newgen, with its AI/ML data science platform, can help automate the entire life cycle of AI/ML projects. Theplatform improvesproductivity,enhancescollaboration, and speeds up AI project execution to accelerate the data to insights journey.With the intuitive drag-and-drop interfaceof the platform, enterprises canenablenon-coders to leverage their domain and business skills to contribute to AI/ML and data science projects.

A high upfront cost of acquiring infrastructure and its management acts as a roadblock in incubating and scaling AI/ML initiatives in an organization.Our platform offers a flexible and scalable deployment model (on-premises, private cloud, and SaaS), leveraging customers’ current infrastructure investments to minimize upfront investments.
