Background:
COVID-19 pandemic has shattered economies & businesses worldwide; however, we have also seen how businesses that have innovated and adopted technology are able to tide through this era of contactless delivery/operations. Digitalization has found a new meaning because of the pandemic; it is being embraced by more sectors. It has become imperative to accelerate digital investments in response to evolving customer needs, use new data and AI to improve business operations, modernize technology capabilities to boost development velocity and increase organizational agility to deliver quickly. According to a report pre-COVID from SAP, 84% of companies regard digital transformation as crucial, yet only 3% have actually finished a company-wide effort. So this is an opportune time for businesses to focus on their digitisation and transformation needs. Businesses which are adapting to this change are more likely to succeed in the new digital paradigm even in the post-COVID-19 era in new normal.
India is a leading destination for delivery of digital services. 70-75% of global digitally skilled resources (~680K) are based out of India in FY 2019. The country is a hotbed for digital innovation with a rich ecosystem comprising service providers, tech providers and start-ups engaging in global delivery, investing in Digital IP / solutions, and creating Centre of Excellence (CoE).
