Sriram Sitaraman is among speakers at Nasscom Annual Technology Conference 2018

Posted by Kimi Mahajan on Sep 24, 2018 11:46:00 AM

Technology has seen transformations since the late 1600s, which started with mechanical powered steam engines followed by assembly line transformation brought in by Henry Ford and Edison and then came the world of microprocessors. Now we are in Technology 4.0, the most profound one, and Nasscom’s 5th Annual Technology Conference (NATC 2018) is all about it. NATC 2018 is being held in Gurugram on 26-27th September.

The conference will focus on progressive topics including Cyber Physical systems, IoT, and all forms of computing including Cloud, Fog, Edge, Mist and Cognitive Computing. Every year, NATC brings together speakers from all over the country to share their knowledge and experiences amongst the upcoming talent that are looking forward to the transformation in them and for their organizations.

Sriram Sitaraman, Practice Head - Analytics and Data Science at Srijan, has been invited to speak at NATC 2018. Sriram will share his extensive experience on advanced NLG and how it is gaining traction and relatively more adoption in recent years. Advanced NLG holds the maximum business value as it produces meaningful interpretation of structured and unstructured data and distinguishes its most important and interesting part.

The most well-known subsets of Artificial Intelligence (AI) are Robotic Process Automation (RPA) to automate repetitive tasks by giving the ability to the systems to learn and improve work processes, and natural language processing (NLP) to enable machines to understand humans’ way of writing or talking. A lesser-known subset is Natural Language Generation (NLG). Ever wondered how a virtual assistant responds when asked a question? Answer to it is NLG. It’s a process that can generate natural language text and speech from predefined data.

Through this session, Sriram  plans to demystify NLG by putting it in context of NLP, Computational Linguistics and the basic semantic architecture. He will explain a few use cases across contextual narratives, summaries and long text generation to help you dive deeper into implementing Artificial Neural Network for NLG. The high level topics he would cover in his session are:


  • Advanced NLG: Deriving facts from data to interpret what is most important and interesting
  • Template Driven NLG: Fitting data into existing templates
  • Basic NLG: Transforming data to text

Srijan is a Gold Sponsor for Decoupled Drupal Days 2018

Posted by Nilanjana on Aug 9, 2018 2:42:00 PM

At Srijan, we've always believed in giving back to the Drupal community. We continuously encourage our team to contribute code, modules, sponsor events and participate in meetups and forums across the world. This year has brought us yet another opportunity to sponsor a Drupal community event and we couldn’t be more excited!

We are proud to announce that Srijan is a Gold Sponsor for Decoupled Drupal Days, 2018.

About Decoupled Drupal Days

Decoupled Drupal Days (D3) gathers technologists, marketers and content professionals who build and use Drupal as a Content Service for other non-Drupal applications, decoupled front ends, content APIs, IoT devices, and more. It is a conference organised to bring together the people involved in implementing decoupled Drupal architecture - the site architects, developers and the business people.

After a successful debut in 2017, D3 is hosting its upcoming event in New York City, from 17th-19th August, 2018.

Srijanites at Decoupled Drupal Days

The event this year has four, very interesting sessions by Srijanites:

Introducing Bots as Human | Trilok Nagvenkar

17 August 2018 | Room: Therefore Interactive Room

Trilok will showcase his idea to demo AWS Lex interface along with the basic GUI,  that is responsible for answering the question over the web interface of the visitor on the fly. This can help minimize the overhead of the user for frequently navigating to various links, evolve the conversational interface to give more user-interest driven content.

Decoupling Drupal? Let’s Make an Educated Decision About the Best Approach | Yogendra Prasad + Surbhi Sriwal

18 August 2018 | Room: Therefore Interactive Room

Yogendra and Surbhi will be walking you through the various options - Coupled Drupal, Progressively Decoupled Drupal and Fully Decoupled Drupal, and talk about the essentials to keep in mind while deciding which is best for your project. This will enable one to make a best-fit decision, and give teams the ability to get used to architectural robustness provided by each approach.

Marrying Decoupled Drupal and a Global Learning Experience Platform | Danielle Maurici-Arnone (ELC) + Shashank Merothiya

17 August 2018 | Room: Aten Design Group Lecture Hall

Shashank, along with Danielle Arnon (Executive Director & Strategic Business Partner at ELC), will be sharing the decoupled, progressive, responsive & native interfaces of a Learning Experience platform.. They will also showcase a modular roadmap where concepts like AI-based micro-learning, Chatbots, AR/VR, Live Stream and Machine Learning Chatbots are being integrated.

New recipe of Decoupling : Drupal 8, Symfony and Slim Framework | Jyoti Singh

17 August 2018 | Room: Therefore Interactive Room

Jyoti will share her latest project experience that used a decoupled and dis-joint architecture solution, based on a three-tier architecture approach. The back-office operations, logical decisions, and frontend presentation layers were completely separate giving developers greater flexibility to innovate, and help site owners future-proof their builds by allowing them to refresh the design without re-implementing the whole CMS.

Also, apart from the session speakers, some of our team of technology and business consultants will also be at the event. So if you are around, we would love to meet you and discuss all things Drupal.

Anil Saini earns the title of Data Monarch in the Tableau community

Posted by Anil Saini on May 22, 2018 12:20:00 PM

“The best way to learn is to learn from people, and the best place to learn is to learn from, the community.” – Anil Kumar Saini

The Tableau Community is a large,  flourishing community and has over 1,50,000 passionate users.  It is a platform where you can find solutions to your problems and share your ideas with other community members. It helps you meet a lot of like-minded people and connect with online as well as local user groups. You can also browse through the most active threads in the forum and also be a voice to a future Tableau product.

When I joined Srijan in 2017, I was fortunate to get started on Cassandra. It was a challenge for me to connect Tableau with Cassandra. But the support from the community helped me in getting all my issues resolved. The help and support that I received, intrigued me to explore more about the Tableau community and I began participating in resolving other people’s problems. Working in the community helped me learn and grow. Within a few months, I was able to use my learnings to implement different business ideas and get the best out of this product.

Being an active member, I started connecting with other active users on Tableau. Whenever I had a query, the community would help me by providing detailed explanations. On the other hand, I would eagerly solve problems for the community. I had two simple strategies:
To seek help from the community if I was not able to solve my issues on my own, and
To utilize my free time by providing help to others in the community
Unknowingly, these strategies proved to be a boon for me and helped me grow both mentally and technically. It helped me contribute a lot to the community.

And to my great surprise, on May 10, 2018, I earned the highest reputation as a Data Monarch and jumped to the 18th position in the Tableau Community Leaderboard- Rolling 12 months. I had also secured an overall 77th rank amongst 1,50,000 Tableau community users due to my active involvement in the community!

The title of the fastest Data Monarch has earned me the recognition that makes me feel that I have succeeded in becoming an integral part of this community.

DrupalCamp London: An experience to remember

Posted by surbhi.s on May 11, 2018 4:31:00 PM

I am really thrilled!

Yes, that's how I am going to start this, as this is the very first feeling I get when I think of being at DrupalCamp London.

Storm Emma had just made landfall, and it was snowing when the Srijan team reached London.

As we reached the venue, I was not expecting many people but. But the excited crowd at the camp was a good pick-me-up in the cold weather.

I was presenting two sessions:

During the session, the audience looked very interested and engaged. As soon as it ended, there was a barrage of questions that kept going even after the session got over. People were tweeting about the session and it was really a nice feeling to see even the unknown people tweeting about the adventure they had during the session.

After the session, the Srijan team got a few pleasant surprises.

David, who operates as a TA in one of the global enterprises, came to meet us. It was good to see that he was able to recall Srijan and said that we were presenting an excellent image of Srijan with our expertise of Drupal.

I also got an opportunity to meet another of our clients, a DevOps manager at a Fortune 500 enterprise. It was wonderful to know that he was able to recall names of my colleagues back in India.

We also managed to meet several folks from peer Drupal companies, and it was exciting to exchange stories around large scale Drupal implementations.

This was such a wonderful and exciting experience. Thank you Srijan for giving me this opportunity and I am really glad that I was able to extract most out of it.

Pushing limits: The Tuffman Ultra experience

Posted by Ashish Thakur on May 7, 2018 1:06:00 PM

Tuffman India organized the Ultra marathon - a 50 km run through some of the most scenic landscapes of Manali. Tuffman races and events are one of a kind, where they make you learn about yourself and help you discover your real tuff (tough) soul. And they had done a great job by organizing this event. 

Having done a few marathons before, I knew that building my stamina was key. And so I went through an incredible 16-week training schedule. I trained hard, and maintained my usual diet that I follow for long runs. The last couple of weeks of training was not really up to my expectations, as I would be in a different city for some work. Despite that, I tried to train and ran a couple of miles in Bristol, Delhi, Chandigarh, and Mumbai. One week before the race I was in Manali and was training there, as running in mountains is a different skill. Few easy runs before the event in Manali made me confident.

Ashish Tuffman Experience

Training aside, since this was my first ever ultra marathon, there was a certain amount of apprehension in my mind. But the fact that others from Srijan’s Goa office were training beside me, and that the marathon was happening in my home ground Manali, made me more confident. 

The day of the marathon dawned bright and clear. The race course swept by cool breeze, dotted with cool shacks, and provided me a reviving and zealous escapade altogether. My fellow runners in this ultra race were from the navy, army, and people who had finished tough marathons like Comrades and Run the Rann. It was a fun environment and it was great to share the track with several experienced runners.

It was an amazing run at an altitude of 6700 ft. The track was divided into two loops: 14 km + 36 km. The 14 km loop was fairly easy and was on a flat road with some elevation gain. The 36 km loop was quite a challenging run with steep slopes of more than 30 degrees. The last 5 km was a strategic run where I ran for a while with all my energy and finished my first 50 km with timings of 6 hours 52 minutes, and finished second in 50 km category. 

Ashish Thakur

The route was long, and it was hard but it was worth it.

After several marathons, running has become my meditation, where I go into this trance state and completely forget about the distance. And now, I am preparing myself for another run.  My next running schedule is Malnad Ultra: 80k, ParadiseTrails Goa: 101 km, and Run the Rann: 101 km. Training for these races has already started and I am eagerly waiting for Malnad Ultra. It would be sheer fun running in a coffee estate. 

In case folks in Srijan are reading this, this is my running wishlist. Now you know what to gift me! :)
