Mr. Raju Vegesna, Chairman and Managing Director, said, “In spite of a challenging external environment across most sectors in India, we are continuing to see good traction for our solutions offerings. While these tight fiscal conditions have naturally resulted in some delays in customer decisions on major projects, we are also seeing that clients are consolidating their services with established service providers. As a well-entrenched player across the entire ICT ecosystem, we are better able to expand our share-of-wallet by leveraging our broad portfolio to provide cost-effective solutions.
“The other trend that we are seeing in this market is that emerging enterprises are beginning to adopt IT in a large way. Our wide bouquet of services, and our ability to scale and implement them quickly, translates into greater value for our customers.“Our investments in capacity building will be in time with market demands. That way, we are able to monetize our investments better and still respond to increased customer demands resulting from consolidation.”
