The SMU DIGITAL ACCELERATOR program is a training initiative where working professionals are immersed in a project that is designed to provide them with the skills, tools and methodologies to effectively build, implement and manage digital transformation projects for their companies. As an Advisory Board member, Kohli will oversee project development throughout the program, helping participants gain the hands-on training necessary to further develop their technical skills.
DIGITAL ACCELERATOR participants work collaboratively in small teams to solve real-world business problems. Participants gain technical, analytical and communication skills through an involved interdisciplinary curriculum that helps develop a more thorough understanding of the digital opportunities facing businesses today.
"Dheeraj brings vast experience in delivering innovative software-led solutions to market, leveraging disruptive technology like cloud, IoT and predictive analytics to support clients in the travel and transportation industry," said Eric Greenberg, Managing Director of the SMU DIGITAL ACCELERATOR. "This expertise will broaden participants' understanding of how technology can help simplify business processes, improve day-to-day operations and reduce costs. He is the perfect partner to help SMU, our participants and their organizations find new ways to deliver best-in-class customer experiences."
Recently, Unisys announced that leading enterprise and IT architecture firm ICMG honored Kohli as a "Top Business CIO" in recognition of his ability to drive business growth by leveraging innovative enterprise and IT architecture. Dheeraj was recognized for his instrumental role in developing and launching innovative technologies, including Digistics™ by Unisys, a holistic and integrated cargo logistics solution that enables carriers to streamline their freight management and improve operational efficiencies.
"With rapidly advancing technologies and an increasingly savvy customer base, the need to define and create new digital strategies quickly and efficiently is more important than ever," said Kohli. "Combining my own extensive experience with the reach and resources of SMU allow us to further our common objective of ensuring that young professionals gain the skills and knowledge needed to take advantage of the digital revolution. I am honored to be joining this important initiative, helping to mentor some of the brightest young minds in the industry."
