Mr. Sachin Bhatia, Co-Founder & VP - Business Development, Africa of Drishti-Soft talked about "India: A Rising Product Nation - The story of an Entrepreneur" to PGPM ’14 students on 25th Oct 2013. The session was highly informative and provocative. He started the session by juxtaposing the Global IT companies and the Indian IT companies. The discussion led us to some noteworthy data points such as India is positioned and perceived as a destination for only outsourcing IT development and system integration.
India is not doing as good as the global companies in producing IT products despite having the resources. Is this because of the fact that just Indians are averse to risk taking? Think again! It’s actually because we are averse to taking own decisions! IT Product industry is perceived as a risky business as the products might be surpassed or being acquired by other better companies every now and then. At this juncture, we have to be proud of some of the notable Indian IT products such as Tally, Quick Heal Anti-Virus.
