Ignite Live 2020 - Enabling Smarter Decisions Together

We hosted over a 100 customers at Ignite Live 2020 in Mumbai, India on 12 February 2020. In a day long engagement, we had sessions on emerging trends and opportunities in the Indian credit market and presentations on Equifax’s global solutions for India - Ignite and Luminate. We also had panel discussions by industry leaders on the evolving lending landscape, using data for better decisioning and targeting the right customer in mass market lending.

Ignite is a powerful concept - being able to bring your own data to bureau data and do analysis is a self service manner and take it all the way to execution - is something we're looking forward to exploring." - Mr Balaji Narayanamurthy - President, Head of Business Intelligence Unit, Axis Bank ( Axis Bank is amongst the top 5 Indian private banks)
