ITC Infotech and digi.me Announces Strategic Partnership
20 Jun 2018

Companies to jointly develop solution that provides end  user with a single view of all their data and complete sharing rights control

ITC Infotech and digi.me today announced a strategic partnership to deliver solutions that not only provide the end user with a single view of all their data but also put them in complete control  of that data and its sharing rights.

ITC Infotech, a global scale full-service provider of technology solutions and a fully-owned subsidiary of ITC Ltd, and digi.me, a  personal data platform and SwissRE HealthTech and FinTech investment, will  collaboratively design innovative technology solutions that aim to leverage  data from across the consumer's lifestyle, health, and social media behavior in  order to enable better personal insights while providing propositions uniquely  tailored to their specific needs. This mutually beneficial partnership provides  digi.me with scale for their technology operations as well as access into newer  markets and customers.

"At ITC Infotech, we continue to invest in solutions that  will enable our clients to deliver the best value and experience to their end  customers. Through this partnership with digi.me, we aim to deliver a  differentiated value proposition to our clients, primarily in the Banking,  Financial Services and Insurance (BFSI) and Healthcare space. We look forward  to being the partner for digi.me's solution globally and enhancing our client's  customer engagements." said Sushma Rajagopalan, MD & CEO, ITC Infotech.

Data is one of the biggest enablers of technology and  growth, but there has long been debate over its control versus individual  privacy. Digi.me is pioneering the ability to leverage technology to provide  users with complete control over their data while providing complete privacy.  This fundamentally shifts power to individuals by making it easy for them to  get, see and share their own data - essentially creating an "Internet of Me"  ecosystem with the individual at its core.

Commenting on the partnership, Julian Ranger,  Exec Chairman and Founder of digi.me said, "At digi.me, we believe in  unleashing limitless innovation and potential by allowing individuals to share  rich personal data through a responsible Consent framework. With our  partnership with ITC Infotech, we're excited to see the first of many  deployments of digi.me's technology enabling ITC Infotech to create enhanced  innovations for their clients using consented personal data privately."

As part of the partnership, digi.me will  further support ITC Infotech in developing the Go-To-Market for BFSI and  Healthcare markets globally. ITC Infotech is currently engaged with over 200  world leading businesses globally, with operations spanning North America,  Europe, Middle East & Africa, India and Asia Pac.
