His role as a Digital Evangelist:
As a digital evangelist, Piyush uses the apt digital tools to transform retail.
“What we are seeing is the rebirth of a new retail format. It is still evolving. I don’t think we have reached anywhere near what we want to see from a technology perspective and I believe that the next two decades will be more interesting than the past two decades. So if you if you were to ask me what I am up to in in LuLu, I was kind of hired here about two years back and my charter would be to use digital tools and transform retail as much as possible so that we are ready for the future”
Piyush has worked for over two decades in the tech industry and has witnessed some of the biggest changes the sector has seen. He believes technology has evolved in three major areas. One of them being, sensing technologies.
AI in Business:
When asked about possible reinforcements of drones and robots for deliveries, the tech master replies
“We are still a little away from that not because of the technology maturity but I think the chaos that it will create there that nobody has still any internet is something which is still democratic. It is not intruding into anybody but I think space is something which is nobody’s territory. So there are still regulations which are being evolved. If we were to say that millions of drones start conquering space it would be utter chaos. So there has to be some amount of regulation and thought process before that becomes a reality”
Piyush strongly believes that unlike traditional retailing, modern retail needs to be unique and subjective for each customer. And that he is working to bring that to life using the most modern forms of innovations.
His work is motivated by the miraculous technologies we are set to witness in the coming years!
