Gurnani, who is also MD and CEO, Tech Mahindra, said the digital tsunami is reshaping the industry and the priority is to reimagine businesses and unlock new opportunities. The Indian IT-BPM sector is emerging as a digital solutions partner for global corporations and we are excited to work across stakeholders – customers, start-ups, academia and others to build this exciting future, he added. R. Chandrashekhar said while there are some uncertainties in the short term, the initial data from global analysts on tech spending in 2018 is promising and NASSCOM is initiating deeper interactions with all stakeholders – global customers and industry providers – to get a more reliable and clear perspective on the projections for FY2018 and will give the guidance in the next quarter, he said
