India Needs Tech, Social Innovations To Create New Development Model: TCS Vice-Chairman

HYDERABAD: India needs to unleash technological and social innovations that can usher in a new developmental model the world has not seen before, TCS Vice- Chairman S Ramadorai said.

"We need technological and social innovations that can show the way to a new developmental model, a model where cutting-edge technologies power our quest to understand the outer space and at the same time high-end but low cost technologies help solve simple everyday problems," he said.

Delivering his address at the 13th convocation of the International Institute of Information Technology (IIIT) here, the top TCS executive said that India has many complex problems across developmental, business and economic needs. "This calls for a higher order of inter-disciplinary thinking to be brought in," he said.

Observing that large Indian corporations need to become research-focused, Ramadorai said that neither there is any dearth of talent in our country and nor of intent as well.

"What is needed is for a few Indian companies to show the way, by forging large scale partnerships in areas of significance for the country and for their business," Ramadorai said.
