Keeping Pace with New Technologies
By reading technology blogs, technical and business websites, e-news, books, magazines, newspapers and tweets.

Would be happy to mention that I have been reading the e-newsletter "SiliconIndia Dailydose" which has not only been providing some of the best updates on technologies, but also news related to various other fields. I have also recommended this to a lot of my friends.
Team Size
Currently  4 members & we also have a software development vertical which service our in-house requirements and external clients.
Biggest Pain Point
Getting data and information from some of the unorganised retail sectors.
Views on Cloud and Virtualization
Cloud computing and virtualization are the next generation computing platforms that have significantly changed the way we compute. Cloud and virtualization will play more and more important role in meeting the needs of organizations and private customers.
Slowdown Impact on IT
Yes, it had been one of the toughest challenges for our IT team.
Challenges Faced
Security of information and databases is one of the biggest challenge that we are facing today. Configuring security parameters at different layers and protecting data from prying eyes is tough.
Adoption of Cloud Policy
We have adopted in a small way for the moment, but will be going large shortly.
Role of Cloud
Cloud plays a very important role in securing information, one of the advantages been the "redundancy".

Since data is stored in several machines, users need not worry about the backups & data centres do provide some of the best security for our information and data.
Expenses on IT
Cannot be disclosed.
Expansion of IT Budget
Yes, our management is always open for any new technology advancement and up gradation of systems.
IT Leader - Manager or Technologist
I feel that an IT leader should be a manager first and then only a technologist. A business leader first and IT leader second.
ROI on Technological Investment
Well, we cannot directly measure and determine the ROI on the technological investment we make, but it can definitely be analyzed on long term benefits we get out of the systems by ensuring that the company achieves its business goals.
Anticipating New Technologies
Cloud computing, virtualization and any new emerging technology.
