IT industry still living quarter-to-quarter: Vineet Nayar
Bangalore: HCL Technologies CEO, Vineet Nayar, feels that the talk of recovery in the IT space is a bit premature and says that the industry still continues to 'live' quarter-to-quarter. "Total IT spending is down, but opportunities keep emerging because of vendor consolidation and the churn," said Nayar.

On the overall demand environment and decision making among the clients, Nayar feels that IT spending has not fully recovered, but continues to grow. "But some companies are not responding to recessionary trends as customers would like them to do. That is throwing up new opportunities," he said.

Though, there is some recovery in market HCL wants to be cautious in its approach, reports Business Line. "I think the industry is running ahead of itself in making positive noises. We are still living quarter-to-quarter and that is the honest truth," said Nayar. "We are still completely missing the point of what Oracle will do with Sun acquisition, or Xerox with ACS, so we are cautious," he added.

According to Nayar, overall, the IT budgets for BFSI space especially in North America continue to be challenged. "I do not see budgets increasing, but I see a significant churn. Also, there is one more factor that's making a big impact, the new emphasis on hardware companies looking at the services space - and we have seen a string of mergers and acquisitions on that," he said. Nayar feels that the customers are not happy with these changes for various and they are moving out of the so-called vertical integration into the market space.

According to Nayar, the pricing pressure has receded, but HCL has established a new norm that its clients want value for every dollar they spend. The pricing established in October-March time frame is the pricing today, and there is no further negativity on that - so in that sense the environment is stable. "But I am not seeing any signs of price improvements," he said. He expects IT budgets to be flat to negative in 2010.

4: This Article starting from the headlines seems to have gone terribly wrong "Vineet Nayar" is no more CEO of HCL and the person being shown in the picture is some one other than HIM. Don't know how this post has come up !o!o!o!

8: After recessionary trends the outsourcing has bottomed. So what has bottomed has to come up or languish in finding new bottom. The global financial weather condition still making it difficult to increase budget unless US prints more dollars

12: Every quarter to quarter HCL is putting their employees on bench if their is no work for them and again taking them onboard for project completion is good pratice to engage their employees on job requirement basis, THIS KEEP THEM FLAT PERFORMERS.

16: Though there are signs of recovery, companies are still under the shadow of recession for sure.

I dont agree, Vineet has just seen benefits of the organization at the cost of Employee money, Hcl never gave high hike to employess & recession is a good moment to grab even more money.

Note: Vinnet is a CEO of Hcl Comnet not of technologies and my statement is only for comnet.

That is right Hari ... and I agree with What vineet says we are still living with tracking qtr to qtr changes and accrodingly adjusting our aspires ... thought recession has receeded after math of which has been cautiousness and slow approach towards market . I think there is lot more to go before we say Market is completely up and there is no fear od downturns ...

During these bad times in IT what in your opinion could be the possible oppurtunities for the next 2 years to come (considering the obstacles being faced)specially in countries - India, Nepal, B/Desh and Bhutan.

Tapas ... Opportunities needs to be explored . Market cannot and should not be the same .The asiapacific has done well to deal with the downturn especially India ...when there were mass workforce reduction happening all over the world , Indian govt came to help the industry and suggested not to cut any head ... we need to come out with better customer service , innovation so that the customer regains confidence in the brand and markets ...we need to have visions of market as to how it looks after 2 years and the steps to be taken has to be in line with that .. but today we look only at qtr end ... sometimes breakdown goals reduces the far vision what we have to acheive and thats where when we get to end of the term we are in compromising situations and companies are forced to reduce cost why do we wait till end moment ... so thats why we need to explore opps in case of IT - a great product mix , a great service offering , end to end solution for end customer .. HP is great example for that ...

Jitheesh,

Though i agree with that you said about the Product Mix and service offering and end to end blah blah ... it applies to a whole lot of companies today - esp Oracle, as mentioned in the article.

But my bone of contention is HP - the organisation as it is "raped" EDS. employees were disgruntled and disgruntled employees are the first sign of a rapid quality erosion in the stages to come. This negativity has also spread to other parts of HP (the software / service side) where paycuts and layoffs were all too frequent.
