This problem is not news and Indian businesses have been trying to prepare since 2017. The first approach is to focus on offshore rather than onsite. Anand Mahindra had called it an opportunity in disguise for IT companies to shift focus to offshore opportunities wherein Indian IT companies global customers by creating offshore support centres. This should eventually replicate onsite experience. Off shoring should be more feasible in India with superior bandwidth and the adoption of cloud technologies to handle data seamlessly from any part of the world. The other mandate is to make a conscious shift out of traditional BFSI focus into segments like social media, mobility, analytics and cloud. Most IT spending is actually happening in these areas. The tougher ask is to create the necessary skill sets and training modules to sustain leadership in digital.
