India is said to be the land of innovative entrepreneurs and now one of the biggest IT centers of the modern world. In the face of global economic disruption, the Indian IT/ITeS industry has shown remarkable resilience. As one of the biggest IT capitals in the world, India has built a reputation for driving business innovation through IT-enabled services including customer relationship management, business process outsourcing, database updation and software development.
