The IT scenario in general has matured tremendously. IT is turning out to be the backbone of Indian Economy. In 2006-2007, India's GDP grew to 9.4% from of 9% during 2005-2006. In this, Information Technology (IT) has undoubtedly been one of the primary drivers. The Indian IT recorded revenues of US$ 52 billion in fiscal 2007-2008, registering a 28% growth. The software services sector too grew by 30% to earn revenue of US$ 41 billion. While the domestic segment grew 26% to register revenues of US$ 11.6 billion.
IT scenario in India can be viewed from two perspectives. Firstly, Indian IT as an industry that caters to the IT requirements of the world; secondly, the IT deployment within Indian industries. At present, the IT scenario in India is promising and is on the upswing. New solutions and ideologies are being accepted that improve business efficiency. The best thing to happen is that the industry has started viewing it as not an auxiliary arm, but rather an integral part of the business machinery. It has now moved beyond a rigid technology-only focus to drive business growth and create competitive advantage.
The importance of IT is now being felt by the strategic decision makers of companies. IT is no longer a fancy; but it has become an essential part of office infrastructure. IT has helped in automating business processes and converting them into extremely cost effective money making machines. There are some industries that have created disruptive business models using IT e.g. banks, retail etc. Many other industries are using it as a competitive advantage tool."
