    Thanks for your submission Alhad; could you elaborate the execution of your session please? That will help with the review. Relevant slides and a video around this topic presented else where or a summary recorded by yourself would benefit as well.

      Hi Vishal,

      Thanks for comments.

      I have updated proposal with session Outline and link to slides (under different title though)

      Session was presented 2 times in the past once at BEACON 2017 conference @Hyderabad and at APGI meetup in Jul 2017. I still feel topic is very much relevant in current digital transformation context. Based on my current experience, many big organizations are still facing same issues and tips/ tricks covered as part of presentation will definitely will help them.

      Please me know if details added are upto satisfaction and will aid in review.
