Dear Readers,

Greetings from Swan Solutions!

India is undergoing its third industrial revolution powered by digitization. The Digital India movement has been picking pace after the budget announcement this month. In order to create a participative, transparent and responsive government, the budget announced eleven technology initiatives including the use of data analytics to curb tax evaders.

Digital India will be a $1 trillion business opportunity - combining the requirements of the telecoms, IT/ITeS and electronics manufacturing sectors. It will change the way industries such as banking, retail and manufacturing operate.

It is important to understand that Digital India has many parts and each has to be addressed to make the big vision a reality. This transformation creates a substantial chance to solve your customer's problems using technology. My two cents: Use this occasion to be an active contributor to the government's initiative, help your customer and create a digital revolution in your organization.



Tech Trend
Digital India - A Plethora of 


Digital India - A Plethora of Opportunities

India is going through a massive transformation with the advent of smart cities, Make in India movement and the Digital India initiative. These will have a far reaching impact on both sides of India - urban and rural.

India is one of the biggest Internet markets in the world today. The country has less than 20 percent Internet penetration, and yet, it has the third largest number of Internet users in the world. If rural Indians connect to the Internet over the next five years, it poses a dream opportunity for Internet companies.

The budget announcements made last month are expected to give a big boost to Digital India initiatives. IT and technology are the backbone for such initiatives to succeed. The slew of new platforms and digital literacy training programs in rural areas announced in the 2016 budget will spur business for Indian IT companies while helping the government to implement its flagship Digital India program. It creates significant opportunity for IT companies to participate in large domestic projects.

A well-connected nation is a prerequisite to see the dream turn into reality. Digital India provides an enormous investment opportunity for both global technology companies and startups. We are sitting on the cusp of a digital revolution.

Enterprises which are successful with analytics have invested in technology to stay ahead of the curve. The key is that they are open to new ways of thinking and will change the way they do business according to the evolving environment.

Expert Tips
Scoop out the local market opportunity

Currently, India has 957 million telecom users but the broadband Internet user base is only 76 million – with lots of room for growth and innovation. Get into the local language web and offer innovative services or products for their needs. Local language web is about content as well as ecosystem: search, design, interaction, elegance, aesthetics and community interaction.
