Earlier, digital interventions primarily involved migrating to ERPs and CRMs whether it be regarding their distribution network or running their order book. Now, with the exponential scale of adoption of the Internet and emerging technologies such as cloud, AI, cybersecurity, intelligent automation, business operations have been disrupted with customers at the center of innovation thus increasing the demand for new skills in the market.
Company’s primary focus is on business-led transformation projects driven by AI and technology. Therefore, these new people will be working on modern technology like AI, data science and cybersecurity.
