The Industry Perspective
Today, software plays an important role in bringing ease of use, efficiency, accuracy, productivity in almost all
domains of human activities - banking, telecommunications, government applications, education, defence,
satellite control systems, social networking, etc. India is rapidly emerging as one of the most promising economy
in terms of growth in the service sector especially in Software, IT and ITES comprising BPO/KPO and other allied
sectors. India is the front runner state in the world's IT industry. India with a huge base of quality manpower who
are well educated, fluent in English, highly talented in engineering, accounting, software and other skills
dominates the current world scenario. Most of the top IT companies along with other sectoral biggies have setup
bases in India and those who have not, are in the process of doing so. It seems as if world is coming to India or
one can say India becoming the world itself.
The Information Technology industry in India is growing at a tremendous pace. The young and talented
Information Technology professionals are making India's presence strongly felt in the global Information
India is the world's largest sourcing destination for the information technology (IT) industry, accounting for
approximately 67 per cent of the US$ 124-130 billion market. The industry employs about 10 million
workforces. More importantly, the industry has led the economic transformation of the country and altered the
perception of India in the global economy. India's cost competitiveness in providing IT services, which is
approximately 3-4 times cheaper than the US, continues to be the mainstay of its Unique Selling Proposition
(USP) in the global sourcing market. However, India is also gaining prominence in terms of intellectual capital
with several global IT firms setting up their innovation centres in India.

The IT industry has also created significant demand in the Indian education sector, especially for engineering
and computer science.
As businesses propose to double and triple their workforces and Indian companies strive to maintain their
position in the global marketplace, it has become imperative to prepare and plan for a world-class, competent,
talented and innovative workforce.
Clearly, the requirement now is to raise the knowledge, quality and standards of the graduates and make them
competent and readily employable in the global marketplace. And there is no other better place to empower
these next generation software engineers than the colleges. The demand for fully trained, competent Software
Professionals has been increasing as the computer industry has expanded and systems have become more
complex and sophisticated.
