Nair & Co's Co-founder Joins Top U.S. Finance Chiefs at the 8th Annual Tax Practices for Private Equity Funds Conference

Vyoma Nair, Co-founder of Nair & Co., will advise U.S. financial professionals on Tax strategies for investments in developed and frontier economies at the 8th Annual Tax Practices for Private Equity Funds conference on October 23-24, 2008 at the The Harmonie Club in New York City.

Nairs first panel Tax Strategies and Best Practices for Reducing Tax Burdens in Developed Economies is on October 23, 11:30 am. In this session, the Oxford-educated executive will discuss strategies for setting up overseas operations, regulations, reporting and withholding strategies that U.S. companies need to know.

At 1:30 pm on October 23 will be another session featuring Nair called Understanding Fundamental Tax Practices in Frontier Economies. The discussion will present key insights on investment in Brazil, Russia, India and China (BRIC), and how these economies can bring the best tax benefits to your fund.

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model.

However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology.

There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
