Smart computing, ‘anything’ as a service, technology enablement in emerging verticals and SMB market will open new opportunities in the market.
“We look forward to 2013-14 to be a positive year from the industry perspective. We have a good eco-system and our certifications are very strong. Our secure IT environment and Acts allow good security and our efficiency is 60-70 percent greater than our global companions. We would now like to partner with the government,” Nasscom president Som Mittal said here on Tuesday ahead of its 21st annual three-day India leadership forum.
