Despite it being in the middle of the Ganesh Festival,the September event of MoMoMum saw an eager group of MoMo faithfuls descend upon The Plateau Hall in the heart of Club Peninsula.The participants were greeted by a surprise setup consisting of multiple cameras to showcase some of the new technologies around the discussion topic.
Ruchit Surati from Mobicore Technologies introduced the topic for the day by giving a brief presentation on the company he represents. The need for an alternate channel or “pipe” for distributing content created by developers was the topic that took center stage in the presentation as well as the panel discussion that followed. Pranav Sayta from G2I Technologies gave a brief example of the success his company has had in creating such a distribution network. There was a consensus among the panelists and audience members on the need to develop such networks to allow both content developers and customers to deliver and access information freely. Issues regarding the “walled gardens” of mobile operators was again raised given the GPRS delivery for Pranav Sayta’s content.
Despite the numerous obstacles, Pranav Sayta was confident of the power of the network created and unique products delivered; an interesting takeaway for the day for all entrepreneurs and managers: To focus on creating different products that customers want and not to worry about things that are not in your control.
The session ended with dinner which was accompanied by a demonstration of G2I’s Lock Eye product. Lock Eye is essentially a mobile Remote surveillance system that allows you to monitor your home/office/factory via your Nokia phone and GPRS connection for as little as a Rs. 7,000 one time charge. As the effect of the delicious food started to kick in, the crowd dispersed ready to return for the next adventurous session of Mobile Monday Mumbai.
