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

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.

DrupalCon Nashville 2018: Taking Drupal to the next level

Posted by Gaurav Mishra on Apr 18, 2018 12:40:00 PM

DrupalCons have always been about growth: how to grow Drupal so it can empower more businesses, and how to grow the community. And 2018’s first DrupalCon at Nashville was no different.

As per tradition, the DriesNote was the highlight of the event, showcasing where we are headed with Drupal, what we wish to achieve, and how we plan to get there. 

A few aspects that stood out for me:

The sheer growth of Drupal 8 over the past few years

Releasing in November 2015, Drupal 8 was a whole new beast. It was focussed at enterprises, it brought in ease-of-use, put together some really powerful features, and aimed for “ambitious digital experience”. Between then and now, with several new versions, Drupal 8 has delivered on that promise and how. Dries’ keynote pointed that currently Drupal 8 drives 240,000 websites, and has a 81% year-on-year growth in stable projects.

Improving Drupal for the consumers

A large part of the DriesNote focussed on how to improve the Drupal experience for the end users. 

The push towards enhancing the content creator experience comes as a welcome move. As someone who regularly interacts with Drupal end-users, a simplified content creating process would go a long way in increasing Drupal’s adoption rates among businesses.

Another key initiative was the focus on raising awareness about Drupal among non-technical users. Again, as someone who is in constant dialogue with enterprises working on digital transformation, I know that decision-makers here are largely non-technical folks who may or may not have heard of Drupal. Any help in making it easier to pitch Drupal to non-technical stakeholders would go a long way in making it a top choice for enterprise systems.

There was also talk about taking a more targeted approach, where community events, Drupal agencies, and hosting companies all work together to promote Drupal in the marketplace.

Improving Drupal for Drupalers

Apart from this, there’s also a push towards improving technical evaluation and documentation processes. That would be great for everyone already working on Drupal, as well as those teams that are just starting off.

In the same spirit, we had Srijan’s Kapil Kataria share a session on “Integrating Drupal Coding Standards with Githooks”. His talk centered using hooks to evaluate code at the pre-commit, pre-receive,and post-receive stages.

Most importantly, Dries launched the Values and Principles initiative, that focus on taking the community’s founding principles from a word-of-mouth version to a universally accepted, written version. As with all things Drupal, the process is democratic and the floor is open for discussion and contribution to improve upon these values.

Besides the DriesNote, the Srijan team at DrupalCon Nashville, with Ishan Mahajan, Ashish Goyal, Pavan Keshavmurthy, Ashwini Kumar, Kapil Kataria, and Manuj Varshney, had a great time discussing Drupal innovations and the larger technology landscape with the business stakeholders at the event.

Once you get talking, you realize that there are a lot of positive changes and diverse range of opportunities to be leveraged with Drupal.

The DrupalCons are also about fun giveaways by participating companies, and this year, we had a few of our own. We had an exciting contest at our booth where participants had to chat with Alexa to win some cool prizes: Amazon Echo, Google Home Mini, and LG Tone Pro headphones.

Over the three days, our lucky winners were: 

  • Jon Bauer, The Nerdery
  • Brian from Major League Soccer
  • Ezra from DLC Solutions
  • Sarah Wall, ImageX Media

So that’s it from DrupalCon Nashville. Now it’s time to get back to work, and see how these proposed changes and improvements materialize to make Drupal more appealing to businesses.

And given that Drupal 8 is moving from strength to strength, you might want to take a look a migrating to Drupal 8. Drop us a line and lets discuss how we can make that happen.
