New Forrester research report on Indian innovation

In order for the Indian IT sector to make the next step in its economic development, it must embrace the broader world of business innovation. That’s the thesis of a new research report from Navi Radjou of Forrester Research, who analyzes how Indian IT providers must reinvent their innovation strategies to sustain global leadership:

“Indian IT service providers recognize that their future growth is

dependent on their ability to innovate. Yet their insular and

operationally biased innovation agenda will prevent them from

delivering what clients value most: business innovations. To sustain

global competitiveness, Indian vendors must recast and upgrade their

innovation competencies to drive not just delivery excellence but, more

importantly, client intimacy. And to speed client time-to-value, they

must network their vertically integrated innovation assets with

resources available in partner ecosystems. To speed India’s transition

from a low-cost IT service provider to an innovation sourcing hub,

Indian IT providers must upgrade their human infrastructure, and

multinational vendors must finance regional ecosystem development.”

In addition, Navi has written a brief report on the link between India and IBM’s global innovation strategy.
