The times are tough, but like the American stand-up comedian Dave Chappelle once said, “Modern problems require modern solutions.” According to the latest study by global IT leader, stepping up investments, especially in cloud, artificial intelligence (AI) and other technologies, organizations at the bleeding edge of things are now growing revenue at five times the rate of laggards. While it’s true that Technology investments have provided companies a way out to conduct business operations, the need for matching these advancements with the skills of the workforce prevails – stronger than ever before.

In this digital world transformation journey has been taken up by several large enterprises, making investment across latest trends, the small and medium enterprises look for niche and more agile IT companies to help them in transformation with cost effective solution without compromising on quality.
