How the TCS-Epic case could impact the IT services sector

Indian IT services companies with software platforms could be forced to rethink their operational set up after the massive fine imposed by a Wisconsin federal jury against TCS.

While TCS has denied the allegations of stealing healthcare software from American company Epic Systems, analysts say that it’s time for Indian tech firms to legally and physically separate their software divisions.

“IT firms need to be at an arm’s length from their software divisions and create a separate legal entity for them. Not only does the software unit require to be a separate legal entity, but the company should also ensure that the employees and management are also totally independent. Unless, that happens, such allegations cannot be ruled out,” said Sanchit Gogia, Chief Analyst & CEO of Greyhound Research.

Not many IT services companies currently follow this practice. Infosys separated its software product company, which remains a fully-owned subsidiary, in 2014.

Dell EMC deal great on the books but not for the cooks

Computer maker Dell stirred up quite a storm in the IT industry by snapping up storage juggernaut EMC for a whopping $67 billion. The mother of all deal will have a significant impact on the enterprise technology landscape in the years to come.

The India market at this point of time is opportune for a Dell-EMC deal to take place considering India is still a host to a large number of organisations who are yet to shift workloads to the cloud. The deal would put the merged entity in a sweet spot as it would be providing end-to-end infrastructure in terms of both devices and storage. And the CIO community in India is closely watching the movements on the Dell-EMC merger.

EMC buy will help Dell turn $3 Bn company in 2 years

Dell’s announcement to buy enterprise storage maker EMC for $67 billion could boost the world’s second largest PC maker’s pace of growth in the Indian market, analysts said.

With revenue of over $2 billion from India in the last fiscal, Dell is the fastest growing company among its peers. It expects to cross $3 billion over the next two years, which until yesterday could be seen as an ambitious target but not so much anymore.

Dell-EMC deal driven by Big Data storage, Digital

Not everyone is excited about a multi-billion dollar merger between two seemingly traditional companies that sell hardware, storage and information technology (IT) services to other companies, especially in a new-age world of social, mobility, analytics and cloud (SMAC), Internet of Things (IoT), e-commerce, social networking, 3D printing and drones.

How Indian IT service providers are getting cloud ready

As the IT services industry takes a different route with enterprise clients moving from traditional to cloud-based services, Indian IT service providers too are shifting gears to keep pace with their global competitors. For the IT services industry, it’s the time to wake up to new realities. Strategic outsourcing is increasingly considered to be dead, IT models are being realigned to new technology needs, and long-term deals are shrinking with every  passing year. Of all the major technology disruptors that have shaken up and stirred the industry, cloud has been one of great significance. The advent of cloud has not just transformed the way IT is consumed by enterprises, it has also in many ways questioned the tried and tested ways of functioning of IT services companies and left them scrambling for answers.

Adobe To Strike Big In India
