Creating New Segments through Innovation
Dr Alok Bharadwaj
Sr Vice President,
Canon (India) Pvt Ltd
Please give us an overview of Canon and its journey in India?
Incorporated in 1997, Canon India Pvt. Ltd. is a 100 percent subsidiary of Canon Singapore Pte.Ltd. Canon today has offices spread across 10 cities in India with an employee strength of over 1100 people and markets 140 comprehensive ranges of sophisticated and contemporary digital imaging products in the country. It is very interesting to see that Cannon India has witnessed a journey of fifteen years. Canon takes pride in not only bringing quality products to the market but also contributes to minimize environmental burden through effective application of environment technologies.
Which were the segments which were dramatically evolved from nowhere and today are being effectively marketed by Canon India?
It is the technology which creates new segments. Geographical dimension also plays a very prominent role. We first started in four major metro cities of India which accounted for only 20 percent of the population. Today 80 percent of our business unfolds from the rest of the India. Another dimension is the vertical segment which involves financial institution, IT, manufacturing, healthcare in public sector, and banks. India was earlier a very homogenous market, but today the vertical has progressed phenomenally. Technology plays a very important role. Education is entirely the prime area of focus. I consider it even more important then the healthcare. India is witnessing a rapid change in technological enhancement.
What are your view in the current scenario of Indian IT industry?
In order to be effective, we need to keep changing the structures and revising it. I want that the entire arena of technology investmen must be increased, be it in Indian context or global. More and more technological deployment should happen in our country which will lead to increased citizen accessibility towards the governance. While modernising technology, we also need to modernise our process. We can not use old process while using enhanced technology and moreover the process of procurement must also be reformed. In this context, Canon strives to make products that are environment and people friendly throughout the entire product life cycle.

The Indian IT Security industry was focusing mainly on anti-virus solutions. The common perception is that the data security is required for Internet websites. But this is not the only thing which we need to worry for. Two years back we came with the concept of complete security.

FireEye has invented a purpose-built, virtual machine-based security platform that provides real-time threat protection to enterprises and governments worldwide against the next generation of cyber attacks. These highly sophisticated cyber attacks easily circumvent traditional signature-based defenses, such as next-generation firewalls, IPS, anti-virus, and gateways. The FireEye platform provides real-time, dynamic threat protection without the use of signatures to protect an organization across the primary threat vectors, including Web, email, and files and across the different stages of an attack life cycle.
