The students are our future. They need to be updated about everything across the world. It is possible only because of the digital laboratory. Shakti Singh, MD, ADS Keytronics, shares his views with Elets News Network.
What do you think are the factors driving the digital laboratory market in India? How good is the scope for its growth in the education sector?
Today is the right time to take this forward. Till now, we were battling tough times. Now that cheap hardware and technology are available, we can take this to every part of India.
As we talk about the future and scope, we can’t think about today’s education system without digitization. The students have a fertile mind. This is the only platform where a student can show his creativity, engage himself, others and empower everybody.
How do you look at the emerging technologies in this field? What can be the areas of improvement?
These concepts are all for the students only. It varies from person to person, based on his educational background and nature. Most important factor in our industry is how to customize it. And this shows us a way. Also that it requires a great work to make it more acceptable to our students and the teachers.
Digitization must be a solution of all these questions, which give a very fruitful answer in the due course of time.
What are the opportunities and the challenges faced by the digital laboratories?
We are a big country with huge diversity. It is a challenge. We can make an opportunity out of it. A small company always has enough room for a person to fit himself in and serve the clients.
What are the strategies, adopted by the vendors, to promote their products?
We are in an industry where people are much informed. They are teachers, professors, managers. They are able to work without any hassle. We are here to make a difference. Switching from traditional to digital technology is really a huge challenge. We should customize, specify, organize as well as prepare a good backup. Only then can we win, change this industry for better.
