Over the years, Indian IT service offerings have evolved from application development and maintenance, to emerge as full service players providing testing services, infrastructure services, consulting and system integration. The coming of a new decade heralds a strategic shift for IT services organisations, from a ‘one factory, one customer’ model to a ‘one factory, all customers’ model.
