The in­tel­li­gent en­ter­prise is gear­ing up to drive new lev­els of ef­fi­cien­cies

Tech­nol­ogy spend­ing among In­dian com­pa­nies is ex­pected to grow sig­nif­i­cantly in 2016, and we are very op­ti­mistic about the op­por­tu­ni­ties aris­ing from this mar­ket. We are ex­pect­ing ini­tia­tives like the Dig­i­tal In­dia, Smart Cities to drive ICT spend­ing in 2016.

Tech­nol­ogy is mov­ing at a rapid pace than ever and In­dia’s ICT mar­ket­place is see­ing some sig­nif­i­cant shifts in the last few years. So­cial, mo­bile, an­a­lyt­ics, cloud, and in­creas­ingly the In­ter­net of Things have be­come driv­ing forces be­hind the rapid evo­lu­tion of dig­i­tal busi­nesses.

Some of the fast emerg­ing themes that re­flect the shifts be­ing seen among the dig­i­tal power play­ers of to­mor­row are:

The In­ter­net of Me is chang­ing the way peo­ple around the world in­ter­act through tech­nol­ogy, plac­ing the end user at the cen­ter of ev­ery dig­i­tal ex­pe­ri­ence.

At the same time, dig­i­tal de­vices on the edge are pow­er­ing an Out­come Econ­omy and en­abling a new busi­ness model that shifts the fo­cus from sell­ing things to sell­ing re­sults.

The Plat­form (R)evo­lu­tion re­flects how dig­i­tal plat­forms are be­com­ing the tools of choice for build­ing next-gen­er­a­tion prod­ucts and ser­vices — and en­tire ecosys­tems in the dig­i­tal and phys­i­cal worlds.

The In­tel­li­gent En­ter­prise is mak­ing its ma­chines smarter — em­bed­ding soft­ware in­tel­li­gence into ev­ery as­pect of its busi­ness to drive new lev­els of op­er­a­tional ef­fi­ciency, evo­lu­tion, and in­no­va­tion.

Ad­vances in more nat­u­ral hu­man in­ter­faces, wear­able de­vices, and smart ma­chines are ex­tend­ing in­tel­li­gent tech­nol­ogy to in­ter­act as a ‘team mem­ber,’ work­ing along­side em­ploy­ees in a ‘work­force re-imag­ined.’

In this evolv­ing dig­i­tal era, ICT has fully com­bined IT and CT, and is shift­ing from a sup­port sys­tem that bol­sters en­ter­prise oper­a­tions to a pro­duc­tion sys­tem that drives busi­ness growth. This makes ICT a driv­ing force rather than a hid­den fac­tor to busi­ness suc­cess, from busi­ness op­por­tu­nity anal­y­sis to de­vel­op­ment plat­form in­no­va­tion.

Dig­i­ti­za­tion is bring­ing a more per­ma­nent change to the IT buy­ing process, one that will cre­ate a far more com­plex sales en­vi­ron­ment for tech­nol­ogy providers. Whereas re­spon­si­bil­ity for man­ag­ing and main­tain­ing a web­site can shift, or­ga­ni­za­tions trans­form­ing work pro­cesses through dig­i­ti­za­tion must re­tain au­thor­ity over those pro­cesses. While this shift in buy­ing power presents new op­por­tu­ni­ties for tech­nol­ogy providers, most are not set up to sell to th­ese new buy­ers.
