Q: How are you viewing the emergence of SMAC and Digital? What is the role you have defined for yourself in these spaces?
A: Analytics, Mobile, Social, IoT, Cloud–we believe that the primary focus has to remain business solutions and how these trends can help businesses transform themselves. Our growth continues to come from helping our clients build such solutions. Business expertise first and strong practices in Data, Analytics, Mobile, Cloud and emerging technologies. This helps us in being the right solution provider to our clients.
Q: What are the changes you are seeing in the customer landscape? How are you gearing up for their emerging requirements?
A: We are focused on Financial Services, Life Sciences and Communications. Most of our clients are looking to build an agile innovation capability to help transform their businesses, being responsive to regulatory and security demands, while also staying focused on operational efficiencies. In the selected business areas that we work in, we continue to build the right delivery, innovation and operations capabilities to address these requirements.

A: Data and Analytics is more than half of our business, growing at an inordinately high pace, where we are getting great endorsement from the marketplace. Only firms that have the right domain and technology know how can succeed in this space, and that's why we are well positioned to sustain this growth.
Q: What does innovation mean to you? How have you made it a value add for your customers?
A: We believe that the best way to Innovate is to ‘do’. Innovation is at the core of our firm. We undertake special initiatives in design partnerships with our clients and for our own technology growth agenda at Incedo Labs. However, we also believe that Innovation cannot be the responsibility of a core group alone and has to be in our firm’s overall DNA in order for it to be really meaningful to our clients. And that's what we are building for!
Q: What is the potential you see in the Indian market? Is it part of your game plan?
A: The Indian market’s vibrancy is the perfect canvas for firms such as ours to build innovative solutions, and we do much of this with many e-commerce firms and start-ups. We also have teams that support our erstwhile parent group, IndiaBulls and RattanIndia. However, the majority of our growth is coming from North America and we are not looking to scale up India focused sales and distribution for the next couple of years. Instead, we will focus on key innovative partnerships at this time, from an India perspective.
