Cloud and big data are key focus areas for us
A report by EMC-IDC in 2010 revealed that over this decade (2010 to 2020), digital information in India will grow from 40,000 petabytes to 2.3 million petabytes, twice as fast as the worldwide rate. Information generation will continue to grow regardless of economic conditions. Technology generally is an ongoing growth area. It may be at a slightly slower rate but will continue to grow and remain critical. Economic conditions may have an impact, but because of this unstoppable growth of digital information, technology spending will continue to increase.
Do you expect Indiaís IT services sector to continue the strong growth it has seen over the last decade?
This one is a bit hard to predict because, at the earlier stages of any segment, the growth tends to be steeper. Indiaís IT sector witnessed major developments in its early stages and the industry grew quickly at a global level.
Will it be the same in the next ten years that it has been in the past ten years? Considering that IT spending in India is already very significant, growth rate may not be so steep. But Indiaís big advantage lies in the fact that companies continue to look for ways to invest. Another advantage for India will be its focus on education and availability of skills in math, statistics and engineering. A lot
