The Globalization Resurgence - The India Story
The Indian GCC ecosystem has grown, evolved, and unlocked newer dimensions of business value over the last couple of decades. GCCs in India have definitively moved beyond the common trope of cost, to drive product, technology, process, and people excellence. This is what is making the India ecosystem a preferred destination for setting up, scaling, and driving significant value through centers of excellence. This excellence however, hasn’t been serendipitous. It ss the result of a community forged from belief and persistence, a key player of which has been NASSCOM.
As the macro-economic environment gets more interconnected and complex, and a probable recession on the horizon, offshoring is increasingly becoming a key theme in business decisions.
