Sr. Director and Site Leader, Diebold Nixdorf India

Achiever's Success Story

Opportunity for India to lead the innovation wave

Indian Achievers Forum has declared eminent software product and data engineering professional Jainendra (Jai) Kumar as the “Man of Excellence 2021.”’ Jainendra Kumar has been awarded this title, for his immense contributions in the field of software product engineering, innovation, data engineering, and academia and industry ecosystem participation in building world-class talent. He has mentored many software leaders, shared his wisdom with students and start-up communities and has developed programs for young students to learn and contribute to the real-world business challenges.    

Students can play an important role in national progress
In the last two decades, initiatives like the Diebold Nixdorf internship program DNterns 2021, Encyclopedia Britannica University Connect, Eduwaive Foundation Social Impact, Software Technology Parks of India startup ecosystem and JK Lakshmipat University project-based leaning programs have enabled students to channel their knowledge and energy to solve both real-world business problems and social challenges in the areas of agriculture, healthcare and education. 

Jai is very optimistic about the future and believes that a new world is in the making – a world where people will trust technology more than ever. Blockchain, Data Science, Machine Learning, IoT, Quantum Computing and space technologies are beginning to shape the world we live in, and creating an innovative workplace calls for top talent, ecosystem collaboration, and a faster feedback mechanism. India has a vast talent pool which has the potential to step up to the occasion of unprecedented opportunities that lie ahead. 

With the setting up of global MNC capability centers and product startups, India has developed high-end product talent which is now acting as the bedrock of innovation coming out of India. Also, with software-centric agencies like NASSCOM and iSpirt focusing on product, startup, policies, and related ecosystems, product innovation has a cultural boost. As government and private players are focusing on a national digital ecosystem like Aadhaar, eKYC, UPI, Digilocker, eSign, the development ecosystem for health-stack is quickly propelling India into the digital age. According to Jai, when we talked about Indian software we talked about services. But now the time has come to expect big, new and cutting-edge global innovation from India, scaling to as large as any of the big technology companies. 

Mr. Jai has been recognized for his exemplary contribution to leadership processes and institution/systems building. He has to his credit various international certifications across fields like product management, data science, machine learning, cloud and FinTech. He is known for launching new innovative offerings in energy management, education technology, health care, hospitality and logistics. Magazines like CIO Review, Computerworld, Ispirt, and many others have published his technical blogs. He is involved in meaningful welfare-driven activities that distinctively impact the quality of life of people.
