Is India Prepared for Disasters?
I think your article ‘Is India Prepared for Disasters?’ ( Dataquest, December 15, 2012) is a wake-up call for the Indian companies, relying increasingly on their IT infrastructure. Unfortunately, the EMC disaster recovery shows that a majority of Indian companies are likely to shell out only 10% of their annual IT budget to secure infrastructure as against 38% by the organizations across APJ (Asia Pacific and Japan). It is the need of the hour that companies insulate their IT infrastructure in order to ensure continued business.
Aarti via Email I would like to congratulate Dataquest for throwing light on the performance of nonIITs along with the IITs in DQ-CMR Top T-school issue ( Dataquest, December 15, 2012). While there is no doubt that IITs deliver outstanding students, but at the same time we should also look beyond IITs with many non-IITians, gradually, changing the rules of the game.
