Vienna, Austria, July 13, 2020: Nagarro, a global leader in digital engineering and technology solutions, recently completed the first virtual series of the popular TURNTABLE event focused around data science, AI/ML and digitalization. The series was divided into six tracks over a period of three weeks and was based on the theme: The Rise of the New Enterprise.
Around 250 top level technical experts from various domains logged in at six designated dates for expert discussions, customer demos, interaction and musical entertainment, streamed live from Nagarro's demo lab. Organizations such as RHI Magnesita, Modul University Vienna and Energie Burgenland shared their experiences with new digital services and remote working during the new normal.
"The positive customer feedback, especially regarding the unique format, is proof for us that virtual events are an ideal complement to the personal contact with our customers," said Thomas Riedl, Managing Director of Nagarro Austria and host.

The series also showcased ten examples of applications from a wide range of industries, deep-diving into emerging technologies such as virtual reality with HoloLens2, IoT and AI applications in the cloud. Entertainment was not neglected either: Ramon ft. Carl Avory created a wonderful atmosphere with live music and enthralled the audience.
The series was attended by many of Nagarro’s clients. Gregor Lammer, Vice President - AI 4.0, RHI Magnesita spoke about the development of the first digital service for customers in the refractory industry. “We are not software developers, but refractory experts, so the step from prototype to scalable digital product and service was huge for us," said Lammer. "We learned the hard way that you should never do such an important step alone. Choosing the right partners, in our case Nagarro and Microsoft, is essential for success. They understand the challenges of implementation and are experts in choosing the right technology."
"Implementing a virtual event program of this magnitude requires much more creativity and preparation than any physical event," said Susanne Soumelidis, Marketing Manager, Nagarro. "We spent significant effort in finding the most suitable platform, and then crafting an engaging, interactive experience for the virtual visitor."
