Goal is to keep India a talent hub for the new skills: Debjani Ghosh
What are the immediate opportunities and challenges you see for the IT sector?
This is one of the most interesting times in the sector. Technology is actually reaching that stage where the adoption is becoming so fast that by 2025 or so, it will more than double. It brings in tremendous opportunities because today technology is getting integrated into every aspect of our life. Economies are getting strongly linked to the way the countries are adopting and using technology.
What are your priorities as the Nasscom president?
I think the two key areas where every company and every industry — no matter how big or small, Indian or MNC — needs help today is growing technology capabilities and growing the business opportunities in the new markets. These are the two things we will focus on. To build technological capabilities, the biggest challenge that the industry faces is talent. You talk to any CEO, any CIO and ask them what is the one challenge that you face in your transformation. The answer, without fail, will be talent. That is a huge need not just in India, but globally. We want to become a very effective partner for industry and countries to develop talent for Industry 4.0.
