This paradigm normally translates into purchasing information technology needs from application service providers; the current manifestation of this paradigm is outsourcing of the organization’s data resources, the so-called backend operations, Dr. Srinivasan noted.

Meeting later with faculty and graduate students individually to discuss research issues, Dr. Srinivasan provided an introduction to the PhD program at Monash University. He emphasized the importance of thoroughly assessing a PhD candidate before acceptance, stating, “It’s something like entering a marriage – it’s a contract between student and supervisor.”He expressed appreciation for the tranquil Amrita campus away from the busyness of city life and the bright, honest and excellent students.

An interactive session for third-year and final-year B.Tech. students helped provide insights on trends in computer science and higher studies in Australia. Students had many questions and concerns, which Dr. Srinivasan patiently addressed.
