Rakesh Aerath, President—Asia Pacific, CGI

"The technology landscape is changing faster than ever, and you must constantly learn and evolve. Never think that you have reached a position where you can relax. I spend a few hours every day learning about new technologies. We all have to be students of the industry and focus on technology and business domain changes to be able to be a partner and expert of choice for your clients. On the other hand, there is a debate about whether AI will replace jobs. Yes, AI will continue automating many monotonous tasks, but in the process, it will create 20 to 30 percent more time for all of us to do more high-value work. We will have to reskill and upskill to leverage this available time for higher-value work. Lastly, we need to evolve from command and control-based leadership to trust and inspiration-based leadership."
