The benefits of working with Principals and partners such as Microsoft and Salesforce are multifold. They range from training and certification to building competency within the organization, to enable in joint GTM (Go-To-Market) programs in multiple geographies. The ability of an organization to scale increases exponentially as Principals and partners guide and support us to replicate the success of a specific use case or within a specific vertical. This includes making appropriate connects within the accounts and the verticals. The partner enablement team plays a crucial role in providing the right relationships within the Principals of the partners.

They also enable us to sell our products and services within their ecosystem through their sell with and sell through (with other partners). We bring exceptional horizontal technical skills to bear, and those are augmented by their market-size or vertical focus and expertise. This results in compelling solutions for our clients.

Throw some light on the technology service provider industry and where it is heading.

Pre-pandemic, technology played a supporting role to achieve non-IT industry business goals and long-term strategies. It was more of an operational support. The pandemic was the tipping point that demonstrated the untapped potential of IT as an equal partner for customer success. For instance, IT promoted the online channel to the business model, and the tool for seamless work environment in a distributed office, home, and the travel mode. It’s the technology that will be at the core for the organization mission, vision, and subsequent strategy.

What trend in technology in service providers do you think isn’t getting enough attention.

Service providers contribution to the core of product development of end-user organizations is not getting enough attention.

To achieve India’s target of a five trillion-dollar economy by 2030, the technology service provider industry will play a key role. It will be a core component across all industry sectors and services that will directly or indirectly contribute to jobs and revenue.

As we are all aware, Indian IT companies have increased their contribution to India’s GDP from 1.2% in 1998 to almost 8% in 2018 and 7.7% of India’s GDP in 2020. And this will only grow. Currently 4.5 million people are employed by IT-BPM sector. And the last count of 100 unicorns from India is just the beginning.
