IT Expertise is a Game Changer

The term ‘business continuity’ has acquired multiple dimensions after the pandemic. With the prevailing hybrid work culture on one side and the dynamically growing technology landscape on the other, corporate organizations have their hands full. A little bit of help from third-party technology experts could go a long way in ensuring business continuity. On the other hand, the increasing

cyberthreat landscape takes it a bit far, making it almost inevitable to amass all the help you can get. Recently, Minister of State for Electronics and Information and Technology Rajeev Chandrasekhar informed the Parliament that India witnessed 13.91 Lakh cyber security incidents in 2022. According to a report by cybersecurity firm CloudSek, India, US, Indonesia, and China accounted for 45 percent of total cyberattacks on government agencies worldwide in the second half of 2022, to say nothing of the attacks in the corporate realm.

Given the new climate, it’s no wonder that the primarily client driven IT consulting & services sector has had to adapt to new service methods, structure, technology, and operation. IT services companies provide more informed, often crucial additional support to organizations with the power of data regarding everything from sales to customers, operations, and supply chains.

On the other hand, organizations face the ridiculous pace of technology and the need to set their shop up in the digital world. Then again, subject matter expertise and knowledge are paramount when it comes to the digital transformation of a business. Consultancies would add value by using AI and analytical tools and offering quantifiable results, combining domain knowledge with technology to provide products and solutions.
