“The business environment today is transforming at a never-before giddying pace leaving people and organizations gasping and challenged in upgrading and adapting to the changed environment. In order that they may not only maintain a leadership position, but also continue to thrive in the changing world, the need to focus on niche areas to specialize is now mandatory for both professionals and companies. This poses a new challenge on both the business acquisition fronts as well as the fulfillment side, for companies who do not have either large operations or deep pockets. Limited resources and fast paced changes have necessitated the need to look towards collaboration and partnering rather than to build in house competence and capability to deliver. The new norm for business success is the ability to plan for the whole and source all the relevant pieces, both from within as well as outside the company, to form a compelling value proposition. Given that expertise and experience is available, trust is an essential and fundamental factor. Thus, a need for an integrator and aggregator who can connect all the dots, and build a seamless and composite solution.”
