Players need to embrace change brought in by newer technologies

As cost arbitrage no longer remains a competitive advantage, the Indian IT industry is witnessing a paradigm shift in the way services are being delivered. In a move to counter the effects of regulations in key markets and the widespread adoption of automation, majority of the IT players in India are being forced to rethink their talent model. With a slowdown in demand for traditional outsourcing services, it is imperative for companies to build newer capabilities in emerging technologies such as Cloud, AI, SMAC.  However, as companies intend to move up the digital value chain, ensuring robust cyber security frameworks while embracing the changes brought in by digital disruptions will be a key factor in realizing the industry’s future potential.
