The Indian government has launched several initiatives to support the country in its digital transformation journey. The launch of the government's Digital India and Smart Cities initiatives have propelled growth among IT organizations of all sizes and verticals. Organizations are increasingly adopting emerging digital technologies such as big data and analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), machine learning (ML), robotics process automation (RPA), augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and blockchain, in order to enhance their business operations and to reduce costs while aiming to stay ahead of their competition.
The Indian IT/ITeS market is experiencing a huge skills gap in the workforce in terms of emerging technologies expertise. With organizations continuously seeking to undergo digital transformation, it helps create massive opportunities for IT/ITeS service providers. As such, the number of training institutes that offer digital courses has increased significantly. Most large organizations have also begun offering in-house educational and training courses in allowing their workforce to execute digital projects efficiently and effectively.
The major verticals in India that are driving the growth in technological adoption are the BFSI and government verticals. In addition, other emerging verticals in India are beginning to show their interest in adopting emerging technologies, which include manufacturing, retail, healthcare, and education.
There has been a huge influx of start-ups in India that offer niche solutions in AI, ML, IoT, big data and analytics, as well as blockchain.
