Where do you see the next big opportunity in India?
Indian IT industry is an exciting place to be and can be categorized in 2 parts: e-governance and private sector. In the govt. sector there is tremendous traction, especially in the IMS space. At Prithvi, we are building three data centers in India for Haryana, Nagaland and Maharashtra governments for their respective e-governance initiatives.

How is the U.S. market post recession?
We see spending rebounding. The IT spend by companies has increased. In both India and U.S. there has been emergence and adoption of new technologies, the prime being Business Intelligence. Cloud computing and business process management is other areas of opportunity. Telecom engineering services is one of the major offerings for this market and hence the U.S. and Brazil is important and we are working on lot of new technologies like long term evolution, 3G, Wi-Max and more.

How do you stay ahead of competition?
Every mid sized company in India is a competition to each other. For us it is the specialized services where we bring an edge. For example, in analytics, we are one of the first companies to start an R&D division six ears ago. Prithvi as a services company has a R&D division where we have do researches solving customer problems. The R&D division churns out lots of solutions, many of which have converted to expert business solutions. This has become a big differentiator in terms of the quality of services we can offer in these specialized areas. We can beat the best in the world in these areas. Today, our clientele includes Fortune 50 companies across verticals like Telecom, BFSI, Retail and Healthcare.
