Currently, 36 per cent of all EY India employees are from the STEM background. “We are using our sector knowledge to deliver tailored digital solutions and services to support our clients’ transformation plans and leveraging the managed services model to help them navigate the volatility,” said Mahesh Makhija, Partner and Technology Consulting Leader, EY India.

EY said it has launched the ‘EY Techathon 2021: #iSolve4aBillion Challenge’ aimed to engage the best technology minds in India. The company is inviting university students from all disciplines to come forward and develop novel solutions to immunise Indians, considering the challenges of the country’s vast geography, demographics and infrastructure. Participants will get to use the latest technologies such as blockchain, artificial intelligence, machine learning and gamification, to develop a model immunization program across different spheres of supply chain, delivery, monitoring and vaccination, EY said.
