Tech Mahin­dra’s an­nual rev­enue for 2018-19 was USD 4,900 Mn, as com­pared to 2017-18’s US$4,778 Mn. Tech Mahin­dra’s mis­sion TechMNxt is de­signed for pre-empt­ing and an­tic­i­pat­ing cus­tomer’s evolv­ing and dy­namic needs for enhanced in­tel­li­gence and col­lab­o­ra­tive dis­rup­tion and aims to ex­plore emerg­ing tech­nolo­gies like 5G – Net­work of the Fu­ture, Ar­ti­fi­cial In­tel­li­gence, Au­to­ma­tion and Ro­botic Process Au­to­ma­tion, Blockchain, Cy­ber­se­cu­rity and In­ter­net of Things. The un­der­ly­ing pri­or­ity is the ap­pli­ca­tion of the trend­ing tech­nol­ogy to solve real busi­ness prob­lems of cus­tomers.

To achieve TechMNxT, the com­pany worked out it’s “3-4-3 strat­egy” where they have iden­ti­fied and pre-empted 3 mega in­dus­try trends, made 4 big tech­nol­ogy bets, and aligned them­selves to 3 key ob­jec­tives to meet cus­tomers’ ex­pec­ta­tions and re­quire­ments in each ver­ti­cal, com­pe­tency and busi­ness line.

The 3 in­dus­try trends are Ex­plo­sion of Con­nected De­vices, 5G & Be­yond, and Video on All De­vices; the 4 tech­nol­ogy bets in­clude Net­work of Fu­ture, Con­nec­tors of the Fu­ture, Soft­ware of the Fu­ture and fi­nally Cus­tomer Ex­pe­ri­ence of the Fu­ture; and the lastly the 3 key ob­jec­tives are ac­tu­ally 3 busi­ness out­comes – Run Bet­ter, Change Faster, and Grow Greater. TechM’s un­der­stand­ing is that each In­dus­try has its own set of trends which gets de­liv­ered by the 4 bets lead­ing to the 3 out­comes. This in­cludes strate­gic ac­qui­si­tions, part­ner­ships, and in­vest­ments.

TechM big global deals came in ver­ti­cals in­clud­ing health­care, media and en­ter­tain­ment, on­line dig­i­tal, telco, tech­nol­ogy and imag­ing, in­for­ma­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­tion tech­nol­ogy, OEM, fi­nan­cial ser­vices, lo­gis­tics, man­u­fac­tur­ing, med­i­cal tech­nol­ogy, en­ergy, in­sur­ance, au­to­mo­tive, smart city im­ple­men­ta­tions across ge­ogra­phies in­clud­ing US, Ja­pan, UK, Canada and other coun­tries across Europe, Asia, Africa, West Asia, Aus­tralia.

These in­clude the strate­gic deal with AT&T to ac­cel­er­ate AT&T’s IT net­work ap­pli­ca­tion, shared sys­tems mod­ern­iza­tion and move­ment to the cloud ; col­lab­o­ra­tion with In­dian Navy to cre­ate an RFID-based se­cured dig­i­tal ac­cess con­trol sys­tem; Dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion (en­ter­prise mod­ern­iza­tion) for Coal India; a Dis­trib­uted Ledger Tech­nol­ogy (DLT)-based so­lu­tion to build a ro­bust ecosys­tem in line with the reg­u­la­tions is­sued by TRAI (Tele­com Reg­u­la­tory Author­ity of India); with the state gov­ern­ment of Andhra Pradesh to es­tab­lish coun­try’s first Cy­ber Se­cu­rity Op­er­a­tions Cen­tre (APCSOC) in the city of Vijayawada to de­liver ex­cel­lence and value in the cy­ber­se­cu­rity space.

A 5G Cen­tre of Ex­cel­lence (CoE) pow­ered by In­tel tech­nol­ogy has been set up in Red­mond, Washington and Bengaluru. They also an­nounced ‘Video In­te­gra­tion and Engi­neer­ing’ ( VIE) busi­ness unit to lever­age cut­ting-edge tech­nol­ogy and so­lu­tions to cater to the heavy demand of video ser­vices in the 5G ecosys­tem. Other sig­nif­i­cant col­lab­o­ra­tion worked out in­clude with Rakuten Mo­bile Net­work Inc. - for build­ing world-class, next gen­er­a­tion (4G & 5G) Soft­ware De­fined Net­work lab­o­ra­to­ries; with US based Or­bic to code­sign and co-cre­ate a 5G de­vice port­fo­lio in­clud­ing a Smart­phone, Tablet, Hotspot and Home Router in India and the US, for the global mar­kets.
