About The Event

As the Indian IT/ITES industry enters the next phase of growth, small and medium enterprise (SME) sector has the potential to be one of the key drivers. IT/ITES SMEs have built niche products and services, which have helped them, grow and compete globally. They now contribute to more than 20% of the overall export revenue estimated at USD108 billion during the FY2013. In spite of the impressive performance and the key role the SMEs play, they encounter many stumbling blocks: Market access, funding, attract and retain talent, leadership development, domain knowledge.

ITsAP is pleased to organize a one day conference on 19th March 2014 at HICC, Hyderabad, to address some of these core issues by bringing together Thought Leaders, Successful Entrepreneurs, Key Government Officials, Finance & Technology Experts under one roof for IT SMEs to network & learn from:

  • Industry, Technology Overview and Evolving Opportunities/Business Models.
  • Opportunities in e-Commerce and BFSI
  • Open house with successful entrepreneurs
  • Policy framework and Opportunities to engage with Government
  • Operational Excellence (Currency Hedging, Virtualisation, and Managed Services)
