The Bengaluru-based Mindtree, for the last 15 years, has performed well as one of the promising mid-sized IT services players in the country. To gear up itself for the future, the company recently created two service lines and also made some internal leadership changes. In an interaction with The Hindu, Krishnakumar Natarajan, CEO, Mindtree, talks about the company. Edited excerpts:
The year was really good and satisfying for us in terms of both in growth and some key client acquisitions, among many other parameters. I would say that the year was a distinct change from what earlier it used to be. As an organisation, we started realising that we are getting a lot of traction in the market by really leveraging our capabilities in digital. The changes we are doing within the organisation are really helping us to prepare for the future essentially for the next three-to-five year period.
Digital technology is playing a key role in the market. Market estimate suggests that organisational spends in digital in the next five years will be as high as $225 billion. Digital is going to be our growth engine for the next 3-4 years. Mindtree started as a digital company, and our belief is that in increasing digital spend, we can gain a much higher market share. We have created two new service lines called digital services and platform service group seeing the future.
