CII-TATA Communications
Centre for Digital Transformation

The business landscape across the globe is undergoing rapid changes, led by digital technologies which are transforming the way systems and processes work. Companies find themselves at different stages of the digital curve and are being forced to rethink their processes and systems as they adopt and adapt to these technological changes. As they navigate their way through digital transformation, they face multiple challenges, ranging from limited budgets to a lack of know-how/expertise required in adopting digital technologies.


There is a need for a platform to bridge technology providers and technology users efficiently and create the trust for better handholding in this process. To help enterprises leverage the technology changes, CII has created a focused Centre for Digital Transformation. Tata Communications is the principal partner and Dell EMC has joined as the associate partner. The Centre is known as the Cll-Tata Communications Centre for Digital Transformation (CDT). CDT is the latest among the CII Centers, which are focused institutes providing consultancy, advisory, and training services in specific areas such as quality, energy efficiency, business excellence, and others to enhance the competitiveness of enterprises.

Our Goals

Ensuring Digital Transformation

The four pillars of digital transformation for any organization and industry are as follows:

Employee Empowerment

Ensuring that the organization develops a digital roadmap and also meets its goals of digitalization, and especially of its internal services and process, and such that it provides the necessary digital work culture and tools to the employee.

Optimizing Operations

Transforming Product & Service Delivery

Reinventing products, services and business models using digital content to capitalize on emerging opportunities by stitching the first three pillars. And helping the organization identify key metrics to demonstrate improvement in terms of revenue, employee strength and adoption of best industry practices.

CDT Services Portfolio

Training, Seminars & Conferences

Training is essential to equip employees with new skills for the transformation. Training programmes will be delivered through open house as well as in-house customised programmes. Experts will share points of view and best practices at seminars and conferences.


Study Mission

Industry-specific and region-specific studies are required to provide innovative and simplified methodologies by collecting feedback from stakeholders. While the fundamental concepts of digital transformation are common to all sectors, the application requires careful adoption of appropriate practices, tools and techniques to meet the specific needs of each sector.
