History has laid countless examples that prove the might of change and an idea. Within the past 400 years, technological inventions such as electricity (1600), the steam engine (1712), the telegraph (1836), and the internal combustion engine (1859) all disrupted industries and society. Now fast forward to the last century; the frequency of disruption has increased with inventions such as the television (1926), jet engines (1939), computers (1941), transistors (1947), personal computers (1975) and cellular mobile phone networks (1979). However, it was the Internet that introduced a renaissance in the ways businesses do business in the first place. And with it, entered IT services. While the seeds of IT industry were sown much earlier with the technological advancements, it came into existence in early 1950s, as the first computers made their way into the business world with the introduction of IBM's first large computer, the IBM 701. After decades of slow but steady growth, the IT services market stood at USD 153 billion in 1990. Since then the IT industry has shown steady growth with few adverse years in between.With all that figures thrown over history, one picture is clear as crystal- C suites are living the glory days of doing business. New technologies like Cloud computing, Big data, Mobility and In memory computing are redefining the way IT industry serves the business. A major transformation was fuelled by business applications. For the IT services industry, it means a shift from system integration to services integration, and from a people-led and technology-assisted approach to one that is technology-led and people-assisted. In other words, most standard tasks and processes will be executed by increasingly autonomic systems that are data-driven, cognitive, and automated.In this edition of CIO Insider, we have covered the story of an exceptional IT firm that has revolutionized the way businesses approach their clients.
