Guwahati: Forbes releases its new list of America’s top 50 female technology moguls and astonishingly, 4 Indian-origin women have been able to secure places in the list! This list carries the names of high-profile female moghuls like that of IBM CEO Ginni Rometty and Netflix executive Anne Aaron and sharing a space in the list with such heavyweights in itself is a matter of pride for the Indian ladies.

To start with, the Indian-origin tech ladies who secured enviable position in the Forbes list are Padmasree Warrior who was the former chief technology officer (CTO) of Cisco; Komal Mangtani, senior director at app-based cab aggregator Uber; Neha Narkhede, chief technology officer and co-founder of streaming platform Confluent and Kamakshi Sivaramakrishnan, CEO and founder of identity-management company Drawbrige. All these four Indian women, through their respective companies and designations have made sure that they do their best and stay unmatched.

Forbes said, “Women don’t wait for the future. The 2018 Inaugural Top 50 Women In Technology list identifies three generations of forward-thinking technologists leading more than a dozen tech sectors across the globe.”

Padmashree Warrior (58) was in executive positions at both Motorola and Cisco and currently, she is the US CEO of the Chinese electric-autonomous-vehicle startup NIO. It was under her supervision that Cisco grew.

Speaking about her, Forbes says, “Warrior still finds the time to mentor other women in the tech industry, stay in touch with her 1.6 million Twitter followers and follow a nightly meditation routine.”

The second Indian lady Komal Mangtani heads business intelligence at Uber and at present, she is on the board of nonprofit organisation Women Who Code.

Neha Narkhede is a software engineer at LinkedIn and helped develop Apache Kafka. This software can process the huge influx of data coming from the site in real time.

Last but not least, Kamakshi Sivaramakrishnan who heads her company, Drawbridge; uses large-scale artificial intelligence and machine learning to identify the different devices people.

Forbes added, “As the number of devices people use on a daily basis -- computers, laptops, and smartphones -- increase, advertisers need a way to show ads to a person across all their devices. Facebook and Google already offer these services to advertisers, but now they have a competitor with Kamakshi Sivaramakrishnan’s Drawbridge.”
