The Rapidly Growing Indian IT Capacity: Challenges and Opportunities
India is the fastest growing emerging market globally, while also being the world’s back office for Information Technology. The Indian IT industry has come a long way in the past three decades - while historically the industry has piggybacked on the ever-growing global demand for agile IT solutions, in the recent past domestic consumption has taken off to account for one-fourth of the industry’s global revenues. A large part of this domestic consumption is spurred by large-scale governance programmes undertaken by the Indian government.
In this guest lecture, Dr. Praveen Malla will discuss the rapid strides the Indian IT market is making within the context of e-governance. What challenges and opportunities does a country as huge as India present? And how can the government play a proactive role in helping the country transition to the next level of development?
Praveen Malla is the Managing Director of LemonBridge Research, a boutique branding advisory firm based out of India. In addition to a long career as an IT-consultant (e.g. at Infosys), Malla has a broad academic background consisting of extensive studies in law, psychology, business and economics.
