Will play active role in making India strategic biz hub: Cisco
Jun 27 2014 , New Delhi
Observing that the fine line between IT and business is blurring and these are now being seen as one, Cisco Chairman & CEO John Chambers said: "The more IT and business strategies are aligned, the better an organisation will perform compared to its competitors".
"Cisco looks forward to playing an active role in enabling digitisation of Indian economy and developing India as a strategic business hub," he added.
Pointing out that creating a successful digital economy requires collaborative efforts drawing on the experiences, ideas and ingenuity, as well as global innovation and experience, Chambers said "governments can certainly play an important role in growing the digital economy".
"Organisations will have to keep ahead of the pace of change to survive," he added.
Chambers was speaking at the CII CEOs Roundtable conference here.
Meanwhile, addressing the conference, CII President Ajay Shriram said: "Digital inclusion can help small & medium enterprises become more competitive, give a fillip to key sectors like agriculture, infrastructure, education and healthcare and help in job creation for the youth".
