The Partner Route Ibrahim Ahmad ibrahima@cybermedia.co.in

I

like the way he said it. “Last year was scary for me”, admitted Steve Ballmer, Microsoft CEO in front of about 15,000 solution partners who had assembled to hear what the world’s biggest software company had to offer, as the cloud wave, seen with a lot of suspicion as a disruptive business model, gathers momentum.

Partners did have and still have a feeling of great discomfort with cloud, and the best thing is to address it and not brush it under the carpet. I am not holding anybody’s brief, but I am happy to see that industry leaders are taking the partner route to the cloud. And they better do. It is the solution providers who have traditionally owned the customer, have the most interesting and unique set of customer insights, care for them with time and energy, and translate these technologies into the solutions that really change people’s lives. The partner route to cloud is going to be an uphill task though, and will take a lot of doing. The various types of partners such as solution providers, developers, SIs, VARs and distributors will have their specific needs to successfully go to market. And investments can be staggering. Ballmer said they plan to pump in about $4.1 bn as incentives for partners to move to cloud. Beyond that, what is critical is partner awareness. Some very interesting insights, even though from Microsoft, can be quite encouraging. For instance, 74% of their cloud CRM deals is happening through partners. Those cloud partners who have signed in are getting a good deal—12% of the deal revenue in the first year, and 6% from the second year onwards. The only on-site guys are being encouraged to start a cloud division, without abandoning on-site. There is a 30 day free trial period for customers during which partners can help them understand and try out the advantages. And for the cloud partners, there is 28% more revenue per employee. In India, I know that the partner awareness level of the advantages of the cloud is still very low. The smart thing that Microsoft is doing is to exhort its partners to first adopt the cloud, which effectively means that there are already 40,000 plus Microsoft cloud customers inevitably, and another 600,000 could log in. ‘Use the cloud to sell the cloud’ is the slogan. Just over 40,000 partners in an ecosystem of over 6,40,000, means that there is still a long way to go, but it does show that the first steps are being taken, across the world. And that is not too bad. Whoever said that partners are going to be sidelined with this new technology, can take it easy.

Banking on Convergence This is with reference to your article ‘Banking on Convergence’ (Dataquest, July 15, 2011). Convergence and user empowerment are driving enterprises to reassess their IT environment’s security strategies. It was very interesting to know the threat the user empowerment raises and about the best practices used. Companies will surely have to start looking at its security beyond its traditional perspective. Mehul Srivastava, New Delhi

Software Piracy: Eating into India’s Growth I want to appreciate your article ‘Eating into India’s Growth’ ( Dataquest, June 30, 2011). Software piracy in India causes tax losses to Indian exchequer every year. The article was very informative as it threw light on the tax revenue losses due to software in 2009. Software piracy is mainly due to lack of awareness amongst the users and something should be done about it soon. Good job! Anil Rawat, New Delhi

This is with reference to your article ‘Indian Supercomputing: Should Meeting Enterprise Challenges I read your article ‘Meeting Enterprise We Celebrate?’ (Dataquest, June Challenges’ (Dataquest, July 15, 2011) 30, 2011). It is rightly written that India is way behind in the global and found it extremely informative. supercomputing race.

I came across the issue dedicated to e-commerce sites (Dataquest, January 31, 2011). It gave the information about sites to browse for various requirements and each site specializes in a particular product/service. However, security is an issue.

Using IT Judiciously People are getting used to online The article ‘Using IT Judiciously’ (Dashopping. Raghavendra Rao K, Hyderabad taquest, July 15, 2011) was a treat to read. I, being a lawyer myself, found it The Dataquest-IDC IT Spend very informative and useful. The conIndices 2010 stitution demands an elaborate legal This is with reference to your survey system. It was good to read about the ‘The Dataquest-IDC IT Spend challenges faced by the legal system Indices 2010’ (Dataquest, June and the solution, especially the new 1, 2010). I must say that it was a trend of e-filing and videoconferencing. Rajat Varma, New Delhi very nice and well-rounded article. Do let me know on any more such studies/surveys that you have done Indian Economy In the Doldrums, subsequent to this one. It would be Again? This is with reference to your article good to see the numbers as they ‘In the Doldrums, Again?’ (Dataquest, stand today and a forecast for the July 15, 2011). The article was really next year.

Building Sustainable Organizations DR GANESH NATARAJAN

It is imperative for players to focus on business solutions that customers expect rather than their own technologies and solutions

DR GANESH NATARAJAN The author is vice chairman & MD of Zensar Technologies and co-chair of CII’s National Knowledge Council. He can be reached at maildqindia@cybermedia.co.in

he celebration of 100 years of IBM is an important milestone for the organization and over 400,000 IBM-ers who can take justifiable pride in having been a part of one of the longest success stories in the corporate sector. However what the milestone should also mean for industry planners and chief executives, is what it takes to build sustainable organizations in an ever-changing business environment. Every industry, from transportation, energy to entertainment witnesses shifts every now and then that makes incumbents obsolete and provide opportunities for new ideas to become successful business models. The rapid shift in platforms, from mainframes to distributed mini-computers to personal computing and now to cloud and mobile devices, has made it imperative for sustainable players to focus on business solutions that customers expect rather than their own technologies and solutions. IBM could be accused of being a little tardy in making the transition from mainframes in the post-Watson era, which raised serious questions about the company’s relevance in the mid-90s, but the alacrity with which Gerstner and Palmisano recognized and embraced the shift to services, both through data center proliferation and data aggregation, mining and analytics to enable cloud computing, is truly worthy of appreciation.. The industry globally is in the throes of transition with power seemingly passed from traditional behemoths like Microsoft, Oracle, and SAP to Eric Schmidt’s ‘gang of four’ which is how the executive chairman of

“The transformation of expectations is already throwing up opportunities and challenges for all of us, building services and solutions for the global market” Google has characterized his own company Google, and Apple, Amazon, and Facebook—all redefining customer interfaces and collaboration within and outside the industry. This transformation of expectations is already throwing up opportunities and challenges for all of us building services and solutions for the global market. Innovation in capabilities will have to be supplemented by exploring new definitions of ‘core’ and ‘context’ for all firms, as the recent move towards ‘source and train’ partnership models for human resource acquisition and deployment has shown. A strong focus on customer needs will necessitate new partnerships for skills identification and building across the ecosystem, which will continue to raise questions about the relevance of business models and provide opportunities for transformation. What we can all learn from IBM is the need to develop a DNA of strong industry focused research capability, globally integrated knowledge sharing communities and a clear roadmap for all stakeholders that makes them comfortable with their destiny and that of the corporation. Our industry needs half a dozen players to build this confidence if the $200 bn exports’ goal has to be achieved by the year 2020. n

OVERVIEW

The Old Order Changeth Change was the order of the year gone by, with Next30 showing promising growth

T

he first thing that someone unfamilar with Indian IT would notice as the most significant finding in this year’s Top20 rankings is that the combined revenues of the Top200 companies has gone up by 25% as compared to 6% a year before. That is quite a change. Really? Not for us who are part of the industry and are following it for several years. For one thing, 25% growth in combined revenues—this is not the industry growth; we will come to that in our Vol III issue—may be good, but we are not surprised. For us, last year (6%) was an exception. This year we are back to being ourselves: one of the fastest growing markets in the world. But even then, this is a bit of statistics you may want to note: the combined revenues growth of DQ Top20 companies at 25% is highest in the last 4 years; that is better than the pre-slowdown FY08. Of course, it is nowhere near the FY07 level of 42%. But then the size that time was one-third of what it is today. There are many pieces of other statistics you will discover. We only do part of the analysis. Almost every year, people come back to us with 24 | July 31, 2011

lots of interesting analysis using our data. We have a new website for this. You can check that out for what exactly you are looking at. Let the print magazine give you the old world joy of discovering as you flip through the pages reading the performance of your company, your partners and your competitors.

The Big Change However, you may not notice the big change even if you religiously go through all the numbers. There is a more fundamental change that is sweeping across the Indian IT industry. Increasingly, leadership is becoming more accountable. And we are seeing a lot of change here. While part of that is the good old musical chair that we are used to, a lot of that is actually the mandate for a big change. In many instances, there is a generational shift in leadership. And here too, the Top20 companies are leading the change. TCS, Cognizant, HCL Technologies, HCL Infosystems, Microsoft India have all gone for leaders in their 30s and 40s. In the Top20, we have as many as 7 changes of leadership while in one more—Infosys—it is announced.

OVERVIEW India

Guiding Principles For DQ Top 20 n All the company revenues are from 1 April 2010 to 31 March 2011. Though different companies have different financial years, we have taken April-March revenue for each company to maintain a uniform comparison basis. Only MphasiS revenue is from 1 May 2010 to 30 April 2011. n Revenues of IT services companies do not include their BPO revenues. BPO companies—both pure-play as well as the BPO operations of multi-services firms—are covered separately in DQ Top 20 Vol II. However, we have included BPO manpower in total number of employees, in most cases. Even in graphs showing overall revenue share across geographies or verticals, we have included the BPO revenues in some cases (in that case, it is mentioned below the graph). n For companies headquartered in India or for companies that had their first delivery center in India, even if they are headquartered outside India, we have taken the entire IT revenue; for companies that do business in India, we have taken the entire India IT revenue; for other nonIndian companies which export out of India, we have taken only the revenue generated by the Indian legal entity. That holds true for captive units as well. n For all conversion purposes, we have taken $1=`45.62 for FY11 and $1=`47.58 for FY10. n For companies that have filled our form in Indian rupees or those listed in India, we have taken their rupee revenue figures irrespective of the currency exchange rate they have used. For others, we have converted to Indian rupees. n In case of companies, who have not provided us with revenues, we have done our own estimates. For domestic business, we have used sources like distributors, channel partners, SIs, customers and competitors to get unit shipments and average selling value to estimate the revenue. For export services, we have based it on average headcount and average salary, taking into account factors such as the type of work and type of services. n In case of non-Indian companies that have their development/delivery centers, we have added their India sales revenue to the export revenue and have presented the total figure. n While many companies responded to the questionnaire sent out by the Dataquest editorial team and filled up the forms, many others shared information informally over oneon-one interactions. However, there were a few companies who simply refused to share any information with us; in those cases, information has been gathered and revenues estimated from secondary sources. n We have included enterprise data connectivity services revenues in companies that provide end to end services including integration and managed services n We have included mobile phone distribution revenues in case of distributors but have not considered the pure phone vendors in the ranking. India

Disclaimer: While the Dataquest editorial team has taken utmost care to stick to these principles, there may be instances, especially with very small companies, where we may not have succeeded in following these principles—say being able to deduct BPO or telecom revenue—completely. Also, though we have tried to be as comprehensive as possible, we might have inadvertently left out few companies from the DQ 200 list. Any suggestions on this line would be most welcome.

alone. Within the rankings too, there is the same theme: the old order is changing. While Top20 itself has not seen too many new entries, except for the return of Satyam, there is some change at the top too. After 6 years, Infosys has beaten Wipro to the second spot. The bigger change is at the Next30 level. As many as 8 companies have entered the Next30. And unlike in some other years, it is not some minor changes after the 45th position. Zylog makes the debut at #35; Glodyne at #36 and Texas Instruments at #40. Some of the regular companies such as Tata Technologies and Dimension Data (earlier Datacraft India) have gone out of the Top50 club. Another number worth noting is that the Next30 companies have grown faster at 29% than the Top20—after a long time. That means they have moved from being followers to challengers. There is a bigger truth that is hidden in these statistics. Typically, the Next30 consisted of a lot of tier-2 IT services exporters. And they have typically grown slower than the top global IT services firms in India, creating a wider gap. They still grow slower. But domestic (and emerging market)-focused companies such as Spanco, RP Infosystems, Sony India and ICSA; and distributors (Compuage, Savex) have started growing faster. The old order is changing, finally. And it is manifesting itself in many forms. Hopefully, we will see a lot more in the days to come. And maybe, in segment analyses in DQ Top20 Vol III too. Over to the ranking and the profiles. n

THE DQ 20

Growth, with Efficiency The lessons learnt in FY10 continued as the company explored newer growth avenues

T

he cost management lessons learnt in FY10 stood TCS in good stead in FY11 too, as it bounced back in style—PAT and operating profits up by 30% and 29% respectively. Fixed price-fixed time contracts grew from 47.82% in FY10 to 49.35% in FY11. Most verticals, barring telecom (where capex spending plateaued globally) and manufacturing (started picking up in Q4) grew substantially—few like energy, resources and utilities (79% growth) and hi-tech (44% growth) that grew most were not even traditional TCS strongholds but key domains of Wipro. The increase in enterprise solutions (up 17.7%) also indicated an improvement in the discretionary spend environment. Though it might sound dichotomous for a company with a headcount of 198,614, TCS was nevertheless focusing keenly on various non-linear growth initiatives. Its TCS BaNCS portfolio for BFSI coupled with products for hi-tech, retail, government and healthcare yielded `1,362 crore in revenues making it arguably India’s largest products company. BaNCS itself added 36 new clients, while another 20 went live. Its platform based BPO, built through Diligenta, evolved into process clouds for large enterprises particularly in HRM, F&A, procurement as well as analytics. Diligenta’s acquisition of Unisys Insurance Services, a UK based life and pensions service provider, further bolstered this platform play. The icing was however the launch of iON, the integrated cloud targeted primarily at Indian SMBs. With an ecosystem of 90+ cloud partners and 150 wins, iON, along with traditional e-gov stronghold, ensured Indian revenues grew 32%. The TCS management had indicated at a hiring target of about 60,000 headcount for FY12. That makes further improvements on the cost margins difficult for TCS on account of people related costs (12-14%), coupled with currency headwinds. Nevertheless analysts are confident that its strong scale advantage and operational efficiencies coupled with pricing would ensure the margins for at least the next 2 fiscals. CEO N Chandrasekaran might have had a baptism by fire, but looks firmly in control at the wheel now.

New Plans, Old Values A new strategy is in place; but the old philosophy has not changed: margins are sacrosanct

I

ronically, when former director TV Mohandas Pai was accusing Infosys of not changing enough, earlier this year, the company had just finalized its brand new strategy—what it calls Building Tomorrow’s Enterprise—that is a blueprint for the most exhaustive transformation that the company has undertaken in its history. While growth came back (21% with BPO, 22% without BPO) in FY11, keeping in with the industry trends, finalization of this strategy, which is the beginning of Infosys 3.0, was arguably Infosys’ most important strategic highlight of the year. What also added a punch to that is the company’s decision to drop the word ‘Technologies’ from its name, indicating that it wants to be seen more as a business consultant than a tech powerhouse. One of the underlying changes is its desire to move up the value chain by creating more IP. It has identified 7 global themes—digital consumers, emerging economies, sustainable tomorrow, new commerce, healthcare economy, smarter organization, and pervasive computing—around which it is creating these solutions. Even its cloud strategy is based on offerings around solutions and platforms; in fact, it is keeping away from the low hanging (and low value) IaaS. It also decided to consolidate all its verticals into 4 blocks: financial services and insurance; manufacturing; energy, utilities, communications, and services; and retail, CPG, logistics, life sciences. In addition, there would be a public services group only in the US. It also consolidated its service lines into 3 broad groups: business transformation (SI, enterprise solution), business operations (ADM, testing, infrastructure management, BPO), and business innovation (products, platforms and solutions). But with all these changes, Infosys just wanted to position itself better with the customers; its positioning towards investor remains unchanged, with stated objective to achieve better than average growth and one of the highest margins. So, Cognizant and HCL, this company is not your competition. On a more technical but important note, it beat Wipro to jump to the second rank in our ranking after 6 years. Also, finally, it is beginning to scucceed in the Indian market.

THE DQ 20

End of an Experiment With a new CEO at the helm, efforts are on to recover lost grounds

T

hough Azim Premji had strongly propounded the ‘power of two’ giving Wipro twice the leverage in growth opportunities, the company was quick to sacrifice the strategy at the altar of its faltering performance in FY11. Both Girish Paranjpe and Suresh Vaswani (now heading Dell India) left, while TK Kurien was promoted to the hot seat with the mandate to restore the company’s fortunes. While the other members of the WITCH club have shown robust recovery from recession in recent quarters, Wipro has been a relative underperformer. If quarterly guidances given by both are met, Cognizant would overtake Wipro in quarterly revenues sometime this fiscal. Even in the DQ Top20 club, it has been upstaged by Infosys to the #2 spot after several years. Wipro’s low exposure to BFSI (27% as compared to TCS at 44% and Cognizant at 42%) was a major reason why its growth was slower than its peers. The BFSI segment which was the earliest to cut spending during the downturn, has been the earliest to also begin reinvesting to position for a cyclical recovery. The telecom and hitech sectors that bring in a sizeable 25% of Wipro’s revenues though have been laggards. Wipro also lacked a credible enterprise application service (EAS) strategy to deal with the commoditization of ADM, which accounted for 40% of its revenues. With the IT sector undergoing a structural shift in spending away from ADM towards SI and consulting around EAS (HCL Technologies has gained in EAS consulting after Axon acquisition), Wipro with its weaker consulting capabilities obviously struggled more than some of its peers. What went right was that product engineering was carved out from a vertical to a new service area, with excellent traction witnessed in automotive, energy and utilities (smart meters) and retail (analytics). Thanks to the Infocrossing acquisition made earlier, infrastructure management flourished particularly with wins in retail, healthcare, and telecom. Not to forget, Wipro also had the biggest domestic concentration (22%) among all its peers; Wipro Infotech’s growth story was built around 6 technology directions it aggressively pursued in FY11, namely, cloud, physical security, open source, mobility, remote management and creation of micro-verticals like constructions, metals & utilties, and oil & gas among others.

loud and increasing focus on consumers (along with upcountry penetration) were the growth areas, and strategies across its 3 business arms were accordingly framed during FY11. In his first India visit, the new CEO Leo Apotheker talked about HP India’s go-to-market strategy focusing on converged infrastructure (CI) as the backbone of cloud computing. The CI strategy brought together data center, application, and network transformation as part of its hybrid delivery approach. With 50 deals, India stood out as a leading country in APAC. While each business unit under the enterprise arm (ESSN) continued its own sales and marketing, the integrated CI approach acted as booster by means of cross-selling. Services too grew at 13% with traction in BFSI (led by automation in RRBs), manufacturing (sub-verticals like automotive and steel implementing ERP), and government (MMPs, treasury, and e-district portals). IPG took the cloud route too with its ePrint strategy (printers on cloud) finding takers in education. Incidentally, much of the innovation on web-enabled printers was done by HP India R&D labs. PSG’s distribution strategy focusing on the regional distributor model with telecom partners seemed to have worked partially. HP reclaimed its #1 position in Q4 from Dell, but by then it had gone back mostly to its old IT national distributor model (Ingram, Redington, Compuage, and Savex were back) and ditched many of its telecom based regional partners (the likes of Unicom Telecom in Punjab and Chandigarh and Shalimar Enterprises in Haryana and HP). Some like Spectra (Delhi and NCR), Shivalik (UP and Uttarakhand), and Linkworld Distribution (WB and North East) remained. HP though justified the change in its distribution strategy as merely ‘tweaking’ to suit market requirements and look beyond the top 35 cities for growing its share. On the product front, as part of its consumer focus, HP bet big on webOS, with India becoming the first country in APAC to launch webOS slate and smartphones—the HP TouchPad, HP Pre3, and the HP Veer. India’s importance in the global scheme was also underlined with Vyomesh Joshi of IPG globally being made responsible for leading cross-business efforts to expand market share in India.

ognizant was knocking loud on the door for long, and in AMJ it finally breached the $1 bn mark in a quarter for the first time. And if guidances are met, then Cognizant might overtake Wipro in quarterly revenues sometime this fiscal; the company that had so long differentiated itself with its captive India model and consistent topline growth despite not receiving adequate recognition, finally arrived in FY11. Growth, profits, geographical diversification, client engagements, horizontal services, all grew giving Cognizant a solid footing in IT services. Cognizant’s revenue from North America had also gone past Infosys’ business from the region. Cognizant went past Wipro in revenues from North America at the peak of the downturn in AMJ 2009, and in FY11 the gap had widened substantially; even UK, where most IT services players had taken a hit, Cognizant increased its revenues by 58% during FY11. It had one of the best client concentrations amongst WITCH members—its top 5 clients accounted for 18% of revenues and 30% was by top 10—the top 10 each accounted for more than $100 mn in revenue even as Cognizant had a gross client addition of 125 in FY11. Financial services (42%), healthcare (25%), and manufacturing/retail/logistics (20%) were the key growth domains. There were big ticket wins like Marks & Spencer for end-to-end integrated applications and IMS or Eli Lilly to deliver services to boost its sales and marketing. More importantly, this meant that Cognizant got nearly 70% of its revenues from BFSI and healthcare segments where it was either #1 or #2 in FY11. Infosys and Wipro lost on this count too. While most IT services companies struggled to achieve non-linear growth, Cognizant was slowly building such models even in FY11. These included its testing practice that had become one of the biggest in industry with 17,500 employees last year and is still growing, or its business process as a service (BPaaS) platform like Intellipeak that bagged 13 wins including Eli Lilly.

After 20 Years IBM India continued to be a leader in software and services even as it bagged a host of deals

I

t should have been 100 years. Right? It is more than symbolic that soon after celebrating its centenary, IBM is all set to celebrate 20th anniversary of its re-entry to India. India has been a critical part of IBM as we know it today. Till 10 years back, IBM was very much an American company with global presence; it is India presence that made it truly international. The fact that its India manpower (estimated) has overtaken its US manpower base this year shows where India stands for the new IBM. Last year saw India leading the growth (along with China) for IBM in the APAC region. According to Dataquest estimates, IBM domestic business grew 16% in rupee terms to reach `6,832 crore. It retained the services leadership while it maintained market share in servers and storage (26% plus in external disk storage). It was the dominant leader in software (30%-plus share). Keeping in with its focus on business transformation deals, IBM last year managed to get contracts from AFCONS, Manappuram Finance, Jet Airways and Suzlon Energy. Among other major services deals were a deal from SBI to create a single information repository; a 5 year managed services agreement with IDFC; a 10 year deal with Caparo India for SAP implementation and data center outsourcing; one from bharti airtelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s African operationss; a 5 year, $19 mn contract from Pyro; 5 year BPO deal from PepsiCoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Indian subsidiary; 10-year agreement with ElectraCard Services (ECS), a leading provider of software solutions for electronic payment systems; a contract from Delhi International Airport (P) Limited (DIAL) to establish a common-use infrastructure in Delhi Terminal 3; a deal from HPCL-Mittal Energy Limited for design and implementation of an MES, from Mankind Pharma for SAP implementation, from KVTSDC for a smarter employability platform; and a contract from ROCA India for SAP implementation. Major hardware and software clients that came in include Federal Bank, AFL, IFFCO, AsiaMotorWorks, L&T, and Travel XP. Last year, IBM announced that it would establish 75 new CoEs at engineering colleges across 60 cities, in addition to the about 75 it already has.

lways a rebel, HCL Technologies ventured into areas and pursued strategies which were very different from what the top 3 had gone for. Unlike TCS, which in a way defined the rules, HCL Tech was a challenger and many critics called it desperate differentiation. Some of it, like higher focus on infrastructure and engineering early on, have made HCL Tech a champion in those areas while some others (like BPO) have gone sour. By and large, the world seems to have recognized that HCL Tech’s strategy is consistent and genuine. The best proof is its stock performance in the last 2 years. HCL Tech had yet another year of consistent growth, though on a comparative basis the growth may not look as impressive as it did in a recessionary year like FY10. What is good is that the growth has not come in spurts but it has done well across verticals, service lines, and geographies. Mature segments like financial services and manufacturing grew 26.8% and 27.2%, respectively while some verticals such as healthcare and retail & CPG grew by more than 50%. Americas grew 26.7% and Europe 19.5% while Rest of the World (including Japan and India) grew close to 60%. In services, infrastructure grew 47.4%, ADM 33.4%, and enterprise applications services 25.1%. BPO, registered a decline. Last year also saw CEO Vineet Nayar’s book, Employees First, Customers Second, becoming a business bestseller, making the world sit and take notice of HCL Tech’s HR philosophy. HCL Tech won some key deals in FY11such as those from Etisalat, First Horizon National Corp, Singapore Exchange (SGX) and OP Pohjhola. Its $500 mn contract from Merck was one of the biggest for the Indian industry last year. In fact, healthcare was a star vertical with wins like Novotech and Purdue Pharma. It also made strong inroads in newer markets such as Brazil and Middle East. HCL Tech won a 7-year contract with Al Majdouie, and entered into a 3-year Integrated Web Services (IWS) program with Melbourne IT. Last year took HCL Tech a step closer to being a tier-1 service provider. The challenge is that its nearest competitor, Cognizant, is growing even faster. And of course, BPO has to be brought on track.

A New Journey ‘Change’ was the word. And it began at the top, involving leaderships and business models

W

hile co-founder and chairman Ajai Chowdhry has been driving HCL Infosystem’s transformation from a volume driven company to a value creating company for a couple of years, it was last year that he decided to announce it to the world in typical HCL fashion, by handing over the reins of the company to a new leader. As Harsh Chitale took over as the CEO of the company, HCL Infosystems made a lot of restructuring at the top. It did not completely shun the old in favor of the new—a common mistake that many change managers do—but decided to create a ‘mixn-match’. External face was changed as Rothin Bhattacharya, CEO, security business, was moved to strategy and marketing, replacing veteran George Paul, who took charge of R&D, a new strategic thrust for the company. The topline remained flat despite growth in services and solutions, as distribution business fell. Among the new executives were Princy Bhatnagar, Gautam Advani, Anand Ekambaram and Sanjay David. Part of the solutions-led strategy was to increase R&D thrust with 3 new centers, a new senior leader, and increasing the manpower from 150 to 500. It also introduced a formal new product introduction (NPI) process to foster faster innovation. It already has close to 40 software products. A radical shift was the decision to look beyond India, thus ending an unwritten understanding with HCL Technologies not to compete in the latter’s markets. It is starting with emerging markets where it can export the India model seamlessly. It started businesses in South Africa and Nigeria, and is looking at inorganic growth with 2 acquisitions in Dubai. But in the actual business, it was good old government sector that provided the impetus with multiple deals, many of them with transaction based pricing. One gap in the services business though is that it is yet to tap the high-value enterprise integration space, something rival Wipro managed to successfully tap a few years back.

Scripting a Comeback FY11 rode on telecom, government and consumer businesses, as HP came back

T

he revival of India’s largest national distributor in FY11 was largely driven by its success in telecom, government, and consumer businesses. The telecom contribution decreased to 12%. The addition of BlackBerry Playbook followed by the mandate to distribute all BlackBerry enterprise solutions across India provided further boost. This explained Ingram’s plan to invest further in the telecom sector. The government’s move to fast-track many of its projects with the view to revive the economy also culminated in good wins for Ingram—APDRPs, SDCs, other e-gov projects, BSF, the ND gained visibly on several fronts. The 3rd pillar was the consumer business, on the support of leading brands like Lenovo, Acer, and Apple. This segment could have proved to be more lucrative had HP—otherwise still Ingram’s biggest principal —not recorded a dip owing to change in its go-to-market strategy. HP changing the distribution model had impacted Ingram in FY10. Though by year-end of FY11, HP had gone back to NDs, like Ingram, especially in the North and West. Other than HP, 2 vendors—Cisco and Microsoft—proved to be the game changers for Ingram in FY11, on a more positive note. Cisco’s contribution grew 90% on a y-o-y basis after the introduction of the CPM model, which now offered better opportunities to tier-2 partners. Tier-1 partners now had to compete with the new entrants on the space thereby ensuring a more level playing field and offering better leverage to Ingram in dealing with its partners. Microsoft injected a new lease of life into the market with its ‘Market Development Program Initiative’ for the upcountry regions. Ingram complemented it by getting cities in 16 states to develop channels and to cater customer demand. All this effort resulted in the upcountry region contributing 10% to the Microsoft business. The pecking order of principals, however remained unchanged—HP followed by Samsung, Microsoft, IBM, and Cisco. The B2B website for resellers launched in FY10 churned 25% of the business by value and 29% by volume. But the portal catered exclusively to the needs of only stock XL businesses and not backto-back or special price orders which is otherwise a major contributor to the company’s revenue.

or Redington, FY11 started on a bumpy note with the biggest vendor on its portfolio HP changing its PSG distribution model by adding more regional distributors for better profitability. It also ended domination of national distributors (NDs) of HP like Redington and Ingram, as in the new model they were bound by geographical restrictions. However by yearend, there has been a partial rollback by HP as it replaced the telecom partners and brought back the NDs into its fold. The impact at the end of FY11 was evident with Redington’s peripherals and consumer PC slice going down to 15% as compared to 25% the previous year. But Redington, just like Ingram, was able to minimize the impact by deepening its engagements with other vendors like Acer, Lenovo, Toshiba among others that acted as a savior for the consumer PC business. That apart from the good traction in infrastructure project business (again like Ingram) with major e-gov projects, acted as a key growth driver during FY11. For instance, Redington’s tie-ups in the biometric solutions space resulted in key wins in the UID project. The biggest growth story happened in non-IT with BlackBerry smartphones and Apple (iPads and Mac) seeing impressive momentum during FY11. In fact, Redington also helped set up BlackBerry ‘experience zones’ in key locations. In software, issues like double taxation still remained a challenge for all NDs like Redington, especially as far as Microsoft was concerned. Better business from vendors like Symantec, Adobe, and Autodesk (all in excess of `300 crore) somewhat offset the software concerns. With working capital, managing credits, and recovery being one big challenge for the large NDs, Redington’s fully owned NBFC aimed at providing financing support to the IT channel partners, proved invaluable. It also moved away from being Redington centric to a more neutral channel financing company. In a recent development Standard Chartered Private Equity picked 12% stake in Redington India and that might have an impact on Redington’s future in FY12.

he turnaround in FY11 after a relatively flat FY10 was driven primarily by the enterprise and commercial businesses. Government and IT services were the key growth verticals with wins in Indian Air Force (data and voice integration), UID, APDRPs, and CSCs. Even the CWG project, now mired in controversy, was undeniably the first time the country got such a high-definition network. All the top 5 IT services players also deployed some form of integrated video solutions from Cisco. The difference was that Cisco was not just pushing its traditional active networking products in the enterprise space, but there was increasing traction of its traditionally noncore areas like unified communications, security and blade servers. It was not only that 31% of its revenues came from these non-core areas, but it found potential takers in absolutely new segments; there was significant traction for its blade servers in the data center space making it the #3 vendor in the pecking order. Add to this Cisco’s virtualization game plan, wherein it extended its Borderless Networks portfolio by launching a new network service called Application Velocity and a new solution called Cisco Virtualization Experience Infrastructure. What logically followed were the Cloud Experience Centers that it launched in collaboration with EMC. In fact, if global rumors that EMC could acquire Cisco turn out to be true, the India integration would be smooth considering how closely the two worked together. The commercial and SMB segments were even bigger success stories. The F1 Overdrive initiative led to 158% increase in partner coverage y-o-y for Cisco resulting in 53% growth; the launch of 8 new product exchange centers at Goa, Indore, Nagpur, Baroda, Surat, Jaipur, Kochi, and Thiruvananthapuram and 50 other cities through the ‘hub and spoke model’ with Accel Frontline ensured upcountry penetration. But most importantly Cisco revamped its entire partner base into 5 segments based on their market division. About 75% of its revenues were contributed by the Gold (4) and Silver (7) Partners.

HIGHLIGHTS l Sandeep Mathur took over as managing director from Bhaskar Pramanik l Exadata and Exalogic became significant part of strategy l Bagged HRM deployment project from Government of Orissa

n FY11, Oracle India underwent a massive realignment, as the Sun integration started taking place. The integration pangs were felt at the senior management level as former Sun India MD Bhaskar Pramanik, who had taken over as Oracle India MD a year back, left (he is now heading Microsoft India) as did most of the senior executives who had joined Oracle post-merger along with Pramanik. Though Oracle is now organized into four business units—database, applications, fusion middleware and storage systems (which came as a part of the acquisition of Sun/ StorageTek), Sun, headed by Kapil Sood, continued to operate as a legally independent entity in India in FY11. It enabled Oracle to cash in on its database business through the launch of Exadata and Exalogic, developed using Sun technology. Oracle, with more than 60% RDBMS market share in India (accounted for 40% of its business) further bolstered after the launch of 11g R2 in India, started leveraging the installed base of customers for Oracle Database (more than 7,000) to drive sales for Exadata. Not just RDBMS, all its traditional businesses like applications, fusion middleware and storage systems witnessed robust traction from telecom, education, infrastructure, government and banking. Key government wins include the one from Orissa (Oracle HRM for 4.75 lakh employees working in 6,143 offices) and Indian Railways (Tuxedo and Weblogic Server for its Freight Operations Information System). Other marquee wins included BSNL, PNB, IDBI, Shoppers Stop, DS Group, TopsGroup, and Helpage India. It generated nearly `2,600 crore in revenue from new license sale in FY11. Oracle flexed its muscle in middleware too registering a growth of 26% and ending with a 34.2% market share. With its principal competitor in enterprise software, SAP running away in the SMB segment, Oracle too tried grabbing a piece of the pie with customers like NutHuch Nutricare and The Pride Hotels. Market grapevine is that Oracle is trying to sell its services biz of Oracle Financial services (iFlex).

HIGHLIGHTS Introduced Virtual Integration System (VIS) for enabling customers to transition existing technologies to cloud model l Expanded its cloud based services portfolio to simplify IT management and reduce costs with SaaS solutions l Launched the education-centric solution— the connected classroom transforming the learning environment for the digital age l India-originated Dell SMB ‘Take Your Own Path’ campaign added 2 new ‘heroes’—Vishwas Chitale of Chitale Dairy and Subrahmanyam Yadavalli of CoOptions Technologies l

ipro veteran Suresh Vaswani’s appointment as chairman re-enforced Dell India’s commitment to ramp up its IT services strength in India where it was trying to hit the $2 bn revenue mark. In fact, the services business grew exponentially faster (xx%) than its hardware business. Looking to exploit its global expertise in different verticals in India too, the company’s strategy was a judicious mix of vertical with horizontal focus on ADM, BPO, testing, BI, and migration to the cloud. The Perot acquisition has been the icing on the cake as it added healthcare and financial services expertise. India was a key part of its services strategy with a 11,000 strong team providing round-the-clock service support. India is strategic to Dell from a delivery point of view too, more so considering the crucial role played by the applications and BPO business in bolstering its transformation to an IT solutions force globally. Dell’s engagement with the government has been steadily rising over the last 12-18 months, particularly in the UID project. The connected classroom solution stack in its first year gained momentum. In K12, research and higher education did well with significant wins in HPC solutions. On the systems front, Dell became the largest PC vendor in India in JAS, though by the last quarter, HP had reclaimed its #1 spot. Dell with 31% share in JFM however led HP (17%) in notebooks. With the launch of new products like tablets (Streak), smartphones (the XCD series—first to launch in open market) and printers (world’s smallest A4 color single-function laser), Dell is expected to consolidate its position further. Reacting swiftly to allegations of large-scale parallel imports, Dell issued advisory against 11 partners found indulging in procurement and distribution from unauthorized channel overseas. It also refused to take the responsibility of any kind of service support for the grey market, imported or refurbished products. While consumers in turn suffered since they were devoid of warranties and value-added services, many partners argued that parallel importing is not an illegal activity, as the importers bought products in bulk from overseas and sold them in the Indian market after duly paying all import duties and local taxes.

hile it was already well-publicized that Intel depends heavily on its India Design Center, it was heartening to see it betting big on the Indian market to drive its global growth. Along with China, India was one of Intel’s fastest growing markets in FY11 and was on course to soon cross the $1 bn mark. That Intel found takers amongst more than 500 laptop and desktop designs from all leading OEMs, over 100 ISVs as well as 1,000+ GIDs for its new products including Sandy Bridge, helped. With competition from AMD remaining muted throughout the year, Intel was enjoying close to 90% of the processor market share in India. It was still a leader in netbooks despite competition pouring in from the likes of AMD and ARM. The achilles’ heel as of now seemed to be the rise of tablets and smartphones, an area where it continued to disappoint, though a tablet by Acer based on its Oak Trail processor is expected later this year. Education and entertainment were identified as the key growth riders for India, and along with government and healthcare, were earmarked as focus areas in FY11. Intel was actively engaged in large e-gov opportunities like the APDRPs and also helped the Karnataka government deploy the tele-health project in Davanagere district. Through the Tamil Nadu health system project, it worked to improve the state healthcare delivery system, did a PoC and then scaled it through partners. Working with BSNL, Intel also developed an ePCO program to enable PCOs to offer e-commerce services. It did its bit to evangelize innovation by way of $23 mn funding of companies such as July Systems, KLG Systel, and MCX through its Intel Capital India Technology Fund. And though 6 senior executives left Intel (like Rajesh Gupta, Vinay Chopra, Gopal Swaminathan, and Ashok Nair associated with its channel business), it went ahead with restructuring its channel partner program. The new program, called Technology Provider program, included embedded technology ODMs from non-computing space like PoS, security and surveillance and digital signage; and the scope of the program was also extended beyond pure system builders to resellers as well. Earlier in the year, Intel had also discontinued its long-standing distribution arrangements with SES Technologies and eSys.

India as the Epicenter Accenture is proud of its India capability unlike many other firms

A

s Accenture tries to shed its image of an American company and positions itself as a fully global corporation, one of the explicit steps that it took last year was to promote Pierre Nanterme—a Frenchman based in France, to the top job. One of the first things the new CEO explicitly pointed out soon after taking over was that the top management in the company was still not as globalized and one of his agenda items was to change that. He has explicitly stated that within his term he wants to see some Indians in the top positions globally. That is probably why Accenture is proud (and upfront) about its India capability unlike many other firms who do significant delivery out if India but are defensive about it. In fact, most of its contract win announcements made last year mentioned that the services would be delivered out of India and India is now no more Bengaluru for Accenture. It now has a good geographic spread within the country, with many Centers of Excellence (CoEs) spread over Hyderabad, Chennai and Pune, apart from Bengaluru. However it still struggles when it comes to Indian market with IT services revenue being about $40 mn last year—a minute fraction of its global revenue and less than half of its overall India revenue. However it made some headway in the government sector. The key wins last year included one from Uinique Identifaction Authority of India for implementing the core biometric identification system as part of a consortium and a 42-month contract from Nagaland government for implementing state service delivery portal as part of NeGP. Last year saw Accenture appointing Avinash Vashishtha as the chairman and MD for Accenture India, who replaced Harsh Manglik, though this did raise a few eyebrows, as Vashishtha, respected as an offshore consultant, has very little exposure to the Indian market, Accenture’s stated thrust. It also made some other key appointments including that of marketing lead Samira Kohli whose major mandate is to elevate Accenture’s image as a top employer.

An Enterprise High! SAP remains the #1 enterprise software vendor, with new inroads into govt & SMBs

N

otwithstanding forecasts that SAP is fast losing ground to the likes of Oracle and Microsoft, it continued to be the premier enterprise software vendor in India—#1 in ERP (47%), SCM (36%), BI (27%) and CRM (13%). ERP still accounted for 60% of its revenues and while services continued to do well, especially in BFSI and utilities, there was a partial decline in net license revenues from telecom. The SAP story in FY11, however, revolved around government, with wins in APDRPs (Maharashtra, Himachal Pradesh, West Bengal, Uttarakhand), BSNL, Air India, Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai, and General Insurance among others. SMEs were the other success story, especially after SAP courted them aggressively with both its cloud offerings as well as analytics. Adopting a cluster based approach paid off with key wins in Phadnis Infrastructure, Parag Milk Foods, Gulbrandsen Chemicals, Deepak Fastners, and Essae Digitornics. Cloud computing, mobility, and analytics were the 3 key growth drivers for SAP in India during FY11. The cloud offerings on Business ByDesign (ERP on cloud) found good traction among mid-tier firms like Genotypic Technology, Prognosys e Services, Ace Data Devices, Affordable Business Solutions, Zinnov, and Design Excellence. Leveraging the Sybase acquisition, SAP made inroads on the mobility front by launching Unified Business Intelligence and Enterprise Information Management from its BusinessObjects portfolio; combined with its High Performance Analytic Appliance (HANA) software—a data source agonistic in-memory appliance combining SAP software components optimized on partner hardware—customers could analyze massive amounts of data real-time. Ashok Leyland deployed the solution while Infosys became the first HANA customer in India. This approach is expected to be SAP’s answer to Oracle’s Exadata strategy developed after its Sun acquisition. The analytics story was carried further even into SMEs with the launch of Crystal Server and Business Objects Edge BI software as well as 10 vertical-specific analytic applications.

ahindra Satyam returns to DQ Top20 in a new avatar after a hiatus of 2 years and for the first time since its takeover by Tech Mahindra. Even as Mahindra Satyam under the new management made all efforts to wipe the murky slate clean and bet big on bagging more clients, huge expences for incurred to settle lawsuits leading to losses of `147 crore during the year. In connection with the lawsuit filed by Upaid, Mahindra Satyam deposited $70 mn into an escrow account, pursuant to a settlement agreement with Upaid. It also agreed to make a payment of $10 mn to the US Security & Exchanges Commission. Mahindra Satyam is also contesting some class action suits in the US. Closer home, the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) turned down the request of Mahindra Satyam to fully adjust taxes paid by Raju from FY04 onwards on fictitious income; it however gave some relief on taxes paid on fictitious incomes for FY08 and FY09. On a more positive note, key deals inked during the year included managed services for BASF IT Services, a SAP deployment for IRDA, Oracle ERP deployments at Qatar University and OMRAN, the Oman government tourism company, a contract for Kentucky government in US as well as a sports event and venue management solution for Aspire Zone Foundation, Qatar. The last deal was a beneficiary of Mahindra Satyam’s link-up with FIFA (signed during Raju’s time)—one key client which publicly endorsed its decision not to ditch the ship during troubled times. Danish IT company KMD specializing in public services was another high-profile client from the old regime that renewed the contract in FY11. The Mahindras moved in with an agenda to clean up the Augean stable and bring back proper corporate governance as well as bring back the company on a sound business footing in 3 years; after 2 years, it was well on its course, thanks to the efforts of both Tech Mahindra personnel like CP Gurnani and Atul Kunwar who now occupy senior positions at Mahindra Satyam as well as senior lateral hires like Sriram Papani and Srirama Srinivasan. A balanced vertical mix bode well for a possible merger with Tech Mahindra (a telecom-only) in future.

THE DQ 20

Awaiting the Big Merger The telecom slowdown affected business, but BPO is picking up

T

hough Tech Mahindra achieved a big milestone last year by crossing the $1 bn revenue mark, at 11% it recorded the slowest growth among the top 20 services firms, barring of course the re-entrant Mahindra Satyam, its group company. The major reason was a slowdown in telecom spending, the sole vertical that it operates in. Tech Mahindra, waiting for merging Mahindra Satyam with itself, did not initiate any major disruptive changes such as getting into new areas or going for newer acquisitions. However, even as the actual merger got delayed because of litigations that Satyam is involved in the US, the 2 companies started working together. Tech Mahindra, through subsidiary CanvasM, creates enterprise mobility solutions for which it started targeting Satyam customers. Apart from enterprise mobility, cloud is one area that the company got into aggressively for its telecom customers. BT’s contribution came down from around 48-50% to about 40%, while AT&T continued to be the second largest customer. Major revenue still came from Europe and North American revenues did not see much growth, even on a lower base. But the company has won new infrastructure management contracts in the region, which should contribute to revenue from this year onwards. India revenue grew 4-fold, with BPO doing very well. In fact BPO, driven by Sujit Baksi, shone as a service line. It grew 21%. It signed a number of major deals across the world, such as one with Bharti Airtel Africa for offering services in 6 countries, deal from Qatar operations of Vodafone, a deal from Vodafone Hutch Australia and a deal from a Philippines telco, that made it enter those markets CEO Sanjay Kalra left. Vice chairman Vineet Nayyar took over even as there was some restructuring at the top level. When the merger with Satyam happens—and it is likely this year—India would see arrival of a new tier-1 IT services firm.

(C)loud and Clear The company gained a lion’s share in the cloud market with its aggressive strategies

T

hough FY11 had its shares of highs (well received product launches, new R&D center, new relationships) and lows (confusion over INR billing, double taxation, top executives quitting) for Microsoft India, what completely overshadowed everything else was its aggressive push and success in the cloud market. Microsoft was arguably the most successful cloud player in the Indian market while India became its most happening cloud market worldwide. It signed the second highest number of customers (1,300) for its cloud services in India, next only to the US. While the cloud thrust was on offering its Dynamics range of enterprise products (for SMBs), BPOS productivity suite and private cloud solutions (for large enterprises), it pushed Azure—its PaaS offering—strategically among India’s large developer community, which met with very good response with more than 8,000 Azure applications written out of India. Last year saw Microsoft launching a series of new products such as Office 2010, Visual Studio 2010, Dynamics CRM 2011, Dynamics NAV 2009, Lync, and a new version of Windows 7. Most of these new launches were well received. Microsoft launched Windows Phone 7 too but it failed to excite the market. Mobile, despite a partnership with Nokia, continued to be its pain point. Internet Explorer too lost market share to Google Chrome. On the consumer side, Microsoft did extremely well in the gaming market where sales more than doubled. It topped Sony Playstation as the leader. Kinect for XBox was very well received, taking XBox beyond gamers to families. Last year, it seriously experimented with pushing software sales through LFR stores and succeeded to some extent. Estimates say Windows 7 was sold 6 times more through LFRs as compared to earlier versions. The shift to rupee billing for its software met with some confusion and dissatisfaction from the channel community. There was change at the top again as chairman, Ravi Venkatesan; MD, Rajan Anandan; and Srini Koppulu, who headed MS Development Center resigned. Bhaskar Pramanik took over as chairman while Sanket Akerkar took over as MD.

To HP or Not to HP The question is how to grow both the direct and HP channels without undercutting each other

T

he support of HP, the parent company, in terms of generating business for MphasiS had helped it counter the economic slowdown. But in FY11, the HP channel was looking less attractive—while revenue from the direct channel grew 8.6% (QoQ), those from the HP declined by 0.4%. Traditionally, MphasiS operated in the 70:30 ratio, where business in large volumes came from HP (60% as partner, 10% as direct customer, and 30% from direct channel). With uncertainty over how the HP channel dynamics would pan out in terms of volumes and pricing, it was clear that in future one must come at the expense of the other for MphasiS. While the dip in revenue channel could be attributed to currency fluctuations, the growth in direct channel was a result of the business restructuring in terms of geographies and verticals. To maximize its growth proposition, MphasiS had compressed its focus in terms of geographies—matured (focused on 5 countries) and emerging (focused on 3 countries). And the geographies were identified on the basis of customer buying behavior instead of physical proximity. The existing BFSI vertical was split into banking, capital markets (BCM) and insurance which were the major verticals of focus while the rest came the enterprise business unit. Through its membership with the Association for Co-operative Operations Research and Development (ACORD), MphasiS was able to strengthen its insurance offerings by improving the flow of insurance information to its clients. The strategic partnership with JackBe’s (for the intelligence platform, Presto) in turn helped their BCM customers. That BCM and insurance grew 7.5% and 6.9% (QoQ), respectively whereas communication and entertainment declined 3.7% vindicated the MphasiS strategy. The other element of restructuring was the introduction of the concept of an incubation engine. MphasiS incubated 4 businesses namely payment solution, product engineering, healthcare solution from Eldorado (Javelina) and hospitality and administrative systems—it invested like a VC in these small businesses, albeit internally. The company even tasted initial success when Javelina sold 4 licenses during the year. MphasiS was also looking at inorganic growth prospects.

ever a big consumer player outside China, Lenovo followed the ‘protect and attack’ strategy with special focus on consumers and SMBs. From being labeled as ‘been over’, it bounced back as the ‘fastest growing vendor’. For the first time its market share touched the 10% mark, on a good show from its relational enterprise business. Traditionally strong in the enterprise, it bagged the top 7 consulting companies as clients, 80% of the top 10 telcos became Lenovo customers and out of the top 10 technology brands, 80% became Thinkpad customers. Keen to increase its market share (currently at 3.8%) in the SMB, it is investing heavily in expanding its retail network—around 400 LES Lites stores were opened. Rubbishing reports of ‘not being a strong player’ in government, it bagged a ‘significant’ deal from Maharashtra for computerizing 28,000 villages, besides bagging deals from Goa and an APDRP project. The business model was re-structured beginning with a management rejig. Rajesh Thadani was made director in-charge of consumer business, Rajiv Rao as head SMB business, Hunter Zhou as head, services support, and Shailendra Katyal as marketing head. The organizational structure was modified to empower regions.

caling of operations and acquisitions allowed Schneider Electric to reach out to a critical customer base in India for its power and cooling services across residential, business network, data center, and manufacturing environments. Its presence in power, IT, buildings, technologies and consulting helped, though Dataquest has only considered IT and a part of buildings’ revenues for Top 20. The IT business spearheaded by its APC brand was bolstered by the acquisitions of Uniflair Spa (November 2010) and APW President Systems (January 2011) positioning Schneider as a leading player in data center physical infrastructure (DCPI) solutions and a one-stop solution provider for power, cooling, racks, software, and services. The 74% acquisition of Luminous, a strong player in inverter and power storage, for `1,400 crore, further enhanced the IT business. The buildings’ segment consisting of building automation and video security services got a shot in the arm with a `503 crore acquisition of DIGILINK structured cabling brand from Smartlink. The acquisitions gave Schneider well-established distribution networks and thus, generated cross-selling opportunities for its power and IT products.

hile Europe and North America will remain Capgemini’s largest geographies, it directed more efforts at expanding its India delivery. More than 10,000 people were hired and strong focus was on hiring freshers to improve its cost of services. The headcount in India crossed 30,000, surpassing home country France. Focus was on moving Indian leaders to global positions. Salil Parekh was made CEO of application services, North America, UK, Asia-Pacific, and global financial services; Baru Rao was moved to Paris as COO, application services, Europe. It launched 5 new global service lines—Business Information Management, testing, smart energy, infrastructure consulting and Business Process Management. The entire territory, solutions and service offerings were driven out of India and testing services showed the maximum growth. The company also registered growth from banking and finance sectors. It acquired domestic IT services firm Thesys Technologies to expand its global delivery capabilities. It also bagged a government contract, with few more in the pipeline.

hile pricing has always been one of its strong USPs, in FY11, expansion and building on its position, both geographically and vertically, was the key focus for Acer. Under its ‘outreach program’ to penetrate more tier-2 and tier-3 cities, around 2,000 Acer Gallery outlets (local partner-run touch points) were opened across 550 towns. FY12 will see a tripling of the number of cities and 4,000 outlets. Education (10%) and government (16%) continued to prosper with deals from Goa and Assam schools, KELTRON and laptop supply deals from Gujarat (60,000), Elcot, Tamil Nadu (for 13,000) and Uttar Pradesh (15,000). The commercial business (lion’s share at 76%) continued to be the ace up Acer’s sleeve—it managed to hold onto the #1 slot in netbooks, thanks to increased buying from educational institutions, insurance companies, and telcos like Vodafone, Videocon, Airtel, and Aircel (for salesforce automation) apart from buying from corporates like Infosys and L&T. Though its system business contributed the majority in FY11 (`2,887 crore), it launched smartphones and servers too.

ver the last 2 years Emerson has embarked on vertical diversification and has identified 11 key verticals: while IT/BPO and telecom were key revenue earners in FY11, it got good traction from government, BFS and other emerging verticals as well. Going with the trend of power back up not seen in isolation but rather as a passive infrastructure—UPS, battery, racks, cooling et al with SLAs on uptime and efficiency—Emerson took on to this ‘efficiency deliverable’ through its strategy of ‘power of one’. One big win in FY11 for this ecosystem based power management solutions was Dimension Data—Emerson was providing solutions for the 6 data centers and Dimension was managing for BSNL. Moreover with the acquisition of DB Power last year, Emerson’s high-end product portfolio got significantly strengthened and during FY12 both DB power and Emerson’s channels would merge into 1 entity leading to higher channel play. On products, Chloride Trinergy assumed significance as it’s the first ever high power modular scalable UPS offering 3 dynamic functioning modes—maximum power control energy saving and high efficiency and power conditioning across 200 to 1200 kW.

ne of the oldest Indian IT companies, which counts Infosys founder Narayana Murthy among its former employees—Patni—which was on the block for several years, finally lost its identity (this is the last time it is getting featured in DQ Top 20 under this name) when it got acquired by iGate for $1.2 bn. Many of the senior executives left before and after the announcement, including CEO Jeya Kumar. But significantly quite a few, including BPO head Sanjiv Kapur, IMS head Apoorva Singh, marketing head Sunil Chitale, EMEA head Derek Kemp, CTO and PES head Satish Joshi assumed important positions. One of the things that new CEO Phaneesh Murthy is doing is to consolidate the operations. On the business front, Patni secured a 5-year contract with UK based IT services provider 2e2 (estimated contract value £20+ mn), a 7-figure contract over 3 years to provide managed services to the Codan Group in Scandinavia, introduced PatniRADAR, a multi-step Reference and Data Rationalization program for financial services companies; it also forayed into cloud.

eographical expansion was the order of the year for the largest non-listed IT services company in India. L&T Infotech invested in setting up a European SDC in Belfast, Northern Ireland; has set up its Australian arm in Melbourne; opened its Middle East HQ in Dubai Outsourcing Zone; acquired Citigroup Canada’s IT outsourcing arm with the goal of gaining foothold in Canada plus a facility in Mississauga (converted into a financial services CoE); and launched a Wealth Management CoE in Singapore. The Citi Fund Services acquisition in Canada actually contributed $40 mn in revenues. Though the demerger of the engineering services arm was complete, L&T Infotech launched new practices around mobile application framework, cloud security, BPM (with IBM), LTE-UE (with Trillium) among others. The India story, started 2 years back, yielded more results—an analytics project from IRDA, collaboration with Broadband Wireless Consortium of India for LTE Radio Access Test Bed, 2 turnkey ERP projects for Indian Railways and a SAP implementation for Maharashtra Power Generation Company were the highlights. 76 | July 31, 2011

he year saw complete transformation of the company which integrated design firm Frog (earlier Frog Design) with itself, changed the name to Aricent Group, and repositioned itself as a provider of what it calls innovation as a service, even creating a tagline—‘innovations for the connected world’. The ‘connected world’ has replaced pure telecom as its target customer segment. The company is trying to sell the value of combining product design with development, with Frog in its fold and has already been successful by creating solutions for non-telecom customers—such as those in consumer products, financial services, and pharmaceuticals. It is also looking at digital design space with Frog at the front-end and a huge development capability with Aricent, at the backend. Even as its positioning changed, the company decided to move closer to the customers by relocating most top positions to the US, with CEO Sudip Nandy too moving there. Last year also saw Frog deciding to make an entry to India through a delivery center here. It is yet to open a studio.

ulip steadily captured a substantial chunk of the enterprise data services market, as it further laid 6,500 km long fiber network across major cities like Mumbai and Chennai. After Tata Telecom and Bharti, it is fast cruising past its competitors in the MPLS BPN services space. But noteworthy was its diversification in the last 1 year into connectivity (enterprise data connectivity), managed services (infrastructure and hosted services), and data centers. It also set up 4 international private internet services (IPCL) gateways globally and 2 gateways in India. Also, to monetize for the growing demand for third party data centers, the company set up 5 data centers in India with a combined space of 10 lakh sq ft. The company’s margins went up by 21% for the fiscal due to a number of contracts from the government, BFSI, and telecom. Its footprints in government deals like APDRP, NIC, and BHEL through its partners such as TCS, Wipro, IBM and HCL, etc, ensured an overall healthy financial year for the company. Besides, clients such as ICICI, PNB, Max New York, Aircel, and Tata Steel, led its growth rally.

The Indian team was also trained with Cisco products for UC. India worked on growth vectors of applications, cloud and virtualization, cyber security and mobility, with the cloud architecture too being done out of India. Other services developed include Testing as a Service on cloud and application services. For cyber security, India will be the global service center. FY11 was a good year as it worked on providing sales and delivery solution for a leading European ERP provider, setting up voice and data network and security services for a big financial services company and implementing a SAP ERP deal for a Vietnamese company.

mongst the tier-2 IT service providers, Syntel seems to have mastered the art of balancing its growth across geographies, verticals or practices (operating margin at 23% was one of the highest). This helped it effortlessly take the leadership change (Prashant Ranade replacing Keshav Murugesh as CEO in FY10) or rupee appreciation (2.3% impacting gross margin by 70 basis points) in its stride. It integrated its IT & KPO services to strengthen its relation with its existing clientele. This ensured that the top 10 contributed approximately 75% to its revenues—top 3 contributing 50% and American Express and State Street Bank being the top 2 clients. Financial services at 58% contributed the maximum to overall revenue followed by insurance and healthcare at 15% each (the last grew most at 28%). There was increasing focus on cloud computing and mobility practices, especially after agreements with Financial Services Authority and Duck Creek Technologies. The net impact from currency movements was largely offset by the infrastructure expansion programs including its new development center in Chennai (featured among ‘Amazing Office Buildings of India’) with an investment of $50 mn and its new SEZ leased facility in Mumbai.

or Savex Computers, it was the HP effect once again that helped strengthen its position in FY11 in the DQ Top 50 club after its spectacular debut last year, as the leading PC vendor continued making game-changing moves. HP’s move to offer exclusive responsibility to its distributors ensured ownership (of sales) effectively to its channel partners. In order to go that extra mile, Savex ensured that its EMI facility could be availed by walk-in customers of channel partners. It was a masterstroke to provide that extra edge to its channel partners in terms of finance. The icing on the Savex cake was its continuation as the exclusive distributor for all HP Worlds (more than 300 resellers) on a pan-India basis. Its strong penetration in class D (more than 450 towns) and class A cities (20-25 towns), ensured that north (31%) and south (28%) contribute significantly to the revenues of this Mumbai based ND. For other segments, Savex targeted an enterprise growth with an offering on the lines of SAP. With HP now deciding to focus on smartphones and Samsung already in its kitty, the future looks rosy. 82 | July 31, 2011

he 26% growth for 3i Infotech (primarily from IT services) is only because BPO revenues, which saw quite a dip, have not been included. The actual overall growth for the company was 5%. No wonder that revenues from US (3%) and Europe (2%) both showed marginal dips in FY11. But these were offset by the 32% rise in APAC revenues, 21% jump in Africa and 15% rise in India. The numbers perhaps explain why the company restructured its business into developed regions (under Som Sharma generating 57% of revenues) and emerging regions (under Pankaj Chawla with 43% contribution). There were a host of new clients—Ceylinco Life, Sampath Bank (Sri Lanka), Bahrain Commercial Facilities, Oman Air, Kirnaf Investment and Installment Company (Middle East), Takaful Insurance (Africa), and Manipal Health Enterprises, Corporation Bank (India), emerging markets bailed out 3i from the US googly. Even the downsizing (done as a part of restructuring) was accepted in the right spirit as evident from its recognition as one of the ‘Most Democratic Workplaces’ for the 2nd consecutive year by Worldblu.

he stupendous growth came primarily because of Glodyne’s acquisition of US based DecisionOne, an infrastructure management services player, for $104 mn. DecisionOne provided IM services to clients such as United Airlines and Oracle, and recorded revenues of $200 mn in 2009—nearly double of Glodyne revenues. It was little surprising that this acquisition alone catapulted Glodyne not only into the DQ Top 50 club but also the domestic market, with a foothold in North America. While IM accounted for 90% of its revenues, nearly 30% came from domestic government projects. While it was involved in e-gov projects in 3 states, Glodyne also bagged financial inclusion projects in Bihar with Central Bank of India and ICICI Bank, among others. It was also involved in a PPP project, eShakti, in Bihar for successful implementation of NREGA and a labor management system called Mahashram in Maharashtra. The government business has received further filip with the recent acquisition of $6 mn Comat Technologies, an e-gov service provider involved in UID projects in 7 states. 84 | July 31, 2011

ot just the topline but net profit too jumped by 43% catapulting Zylog into the elite Top 50 club, thanks to the Brainhunter acquisition that not only allowed it entry in the Canadian market but also access to the top federal government accounts and entry into professional services business. On the India front, it continued to focus on 2 segments—expansion of Wi-Fi and e-governance. The Wi-Fi project (initiated in FY10) started monetizing in FY11 seeing increased acceptance in tier-2 towns across multiple states apart from bagging some big clients like TVS India, Vellore Institute of Technology, Anna University, etc. In FY12, Rajasthan and Haryana will be added taking the total number of corporate customers to 220 and retail to 1 lakh. The company did fairly well in the e-governance domain as well—it did a POC for Agriculture Department of Karnataka; a project from Gujarat Urban Development Corporation for linking the financial transactions for all municipal offices; and insurance card project for the BPL families (2 lakh cards already issued).

he heyday for Moser Baer’s optical storage media business is over as the world’s Second biggest maker of optical storage media continued to see a decline in its core business. The decline is, of course, caused by the internet and easier availability of data. It is reason enough to bank its hopes largely upon India’s estimated $70 bn solar power market, from where it intends to generate as much as 2/3rd of its revenues in the next 2-3 years. It is easy to draw an analogy from its increasing losses which stood this year at `406 crore, as against a net loss of `36.26 crore in the previous year. Currently the share of its photovoltaic business is expected to be somewhere between 2025% in its revenues. But the run does not seem smooth even in the solar power business as its plan suffered a jolt when, recently, it admitted to its inability to implement its $500 mn project in Andhra Pradesh after the cancellation of MoU by the state for failure to adhere to guidelines. But it is not that it has completely given up on its storage business. It is trying to refuel its storage and other IT offerings, and thus recently forayed into the information and web security segments, an extension of its storage business.

he government’s move to invite private participation has culminated in numerous ambitious projects (Battlefield Management System, Tactical Communication Systems, etc) from the Ministry of Defense and others like National Land Records Modernization Program R-APDRP, etc. This contribution from the government sector (40%) explains the record jump in domestic revenues (`1,131 crore) and the northern region (`485 crore) being the top contributor, and also the need to establish a development and delivery center in New Delhi. Rolta strengthened its portfolio by the addition of CommandBridge under an agreement with The Mariner Group, and PCI Geomatics Enterprises’s Geo-Imaging technologies. Its newly launched Rolta OneView solution was deployed at refining facilities in the US, Europe, and South Africa. It entered into partnerships with SELEX Communications for provision of Indian TCS program and with Augusta Systems to incorporate Augusta EdgeFrontier middleware for use in security, defense and other geospatial applications. Rolta was also awarded the ambitious `38 crore mapping contract by Oman’s SCTP in cooperation with NSA.

ven as it celebrates its 25th year in India, Texas Instruments India makes its debut in the DQ Top 50 club as DQ has estimated its exports revenue, which is much larger, compared with R&D operations of other companies of similar size. The ranking is based on combined exports and domestic revenue, which zoomed 187%. The growth shown here is lesser because it depicts the growth of combined domestic and exports revenue. TI’s faith in the Indian market which made it establish offices in 10 locations in the country has finally paid off. Four segments—industrial, automotive, consumer electronics, and medical electronics—accounted for the lion’s share of the revenue. Its AFE range for ultrasound equipment did very well. So did the OMAP range for smartphones and 3D DLP technology for education. The company is focusing on the opportunities of energy, education, and healthcare in India. It is especially bullish about the LED lighting opportunity. Some of the designed-in-India technology did well in global markets. Examples include the Analog Front End (AFE) targeted at healthcare, and Picollo and Concerto microcontrollers targeted primarily at the energy sector. DATAQUEST | A CyberMedia Publication

f the focus in FY10 was on emerging markets, FY11 was about forays into the developed market, especially after it launched the Intellect suite in the Americas and received good traction with a major core banking win in Bank of Montreal. Overall, Polaris secured around 10 long-term deals in Europe and Americas with 2 worth more than $10 mn. Not that the emerging markets were ignored, particularly India, where despite starting late on the core banking front, it upstaged the likes of TCS, Infosys, HP, and Fidelity to win RBI’s `240 crore CBS deployment deal. The earlier Lasersoft acquisition paid dividends as the RBI win was largely due to IPs gained from Lasersoft. The numbers too spoke for Polaris—not just topline, even profits grew 33%. This was not surprising considering that 23% of its revenues came from products, making it arguably the largest Indian product company. And upstaging its more well-entrenched competitors the Intellect suite was present across all 10 key BFSI areas.

t was a turbulent year for MindTree owing to recession, the failed smartphone business which slumped its second quarter’s consolidated net profit nearly by 54% and the exit of Ashok Soota. Realizing its glitch on its journey to the ‘billion dollar club’, MindTree is now focussed towards a qualititative growth to address its diminishing margins. Probably this idea helped MindTree bag the first IT deal in the Aadhar project, where it built a proof of concept using its open source components to build large-scale transaction intensive web applications. Two multi-year and multi-million dollar partnership in IT infrastructure management services (which is worth over $70 mn in the next 5 years) boosted revenues in Q4. It will use Mwatch (its managed services platform) to provide managed services from India to one of the ICT service providers in Europe and a leading US based bank. MindTree Wireless, which contributed over $10 mn to MindTree in FY10, has now been restructured as a design services business.

uring FY10 Prithvi embarked on a consolidation drive and announced its intent to focus only on verticals that can yield high margins. In line with that, over FY11, it exited from verticals like retail and technology areas like mainframe solutions and took on new service offerings. But with topline going for a toss in FY11, it has indicated that the consolidation drive will bear fruits only in FY12. The domestic revenues also declined making it a rather uneventful year for Prithvi from the revenues’ perspective. Part of topline dip can also be attributed to overall anticipated telecom spending not being that impressive over the year. On IT services business front, it forayed into new verticals like pharma and healthcare, and in service offerings it upped its ante in data analytics and forayed into areas like BPM. Also, it saw good momentum from the government vertical for its data center business. While Prithvi is yet to come out from some of its litigations, it has embarked on confidence building measures during FY11 and reached out to its stakeholders, employees and clients, and defended its rightful position.

In banking too, it did well clocking `355 crore in revenue supplying to banks like SBI (its largest customer), BoB, UCO Bank, Syndicate Bank, Central Bank, BOI and Union Bank. Private banks like ICICI too are on its client list. Education was the 3rd highest contributor with `185 crore, thanks to clients like Keltron (wherein it supplied 20,000 laptops), and Gujarat and North Eastern states.

n FY11, Sony moved up the ladder riding on VAIO’s success pan India. VAIO contributed 20% (`1,050 crore) of Sony’s total India sales revenue. While North was VAIO’s biggest market followed by South and West, contributions from East doubled in FY11 propelling Sony to the 3rd position after Dell and HP (by value with a market share) of 15% during CY2010. The sales were basically propelled by a strong product line that included 62 models, a dynamic distribution network of 900 retail outlets, and heavy marketing investment of `50 crore. The channel too endorsed Sony wholeheartedly for its marketing support, online support, commercials as well as channel relationship policies. Besides, the company maintained its direct reach to multi-brand retailers and 85 RDs. The appointment of Kareena Kapoor as the brand ambassador too had a positive impact on retail sales. Sony was also well-entrenched in the 2.4 mn Indian digital camera market, when compared to a slew of fellow Japanese firms like Nikon, Kodak, and Fujifilm, it grabbed close to 45% market share. With digicam sales crossing 6 lakh units in a quarter for the first time, Sony was one of the principal beneficiaries.

t was a well-balanced FY11 for Compuage on all counts—equal contribution from existing and new principals, near equal from all geographies. Revenues were equally spread across 4 quarters and 80% of it were generated by the top 6 brands (HP printers and scanners topping the chart). This balanced assurance supports Compuage’s focus on further strengthening its mix of offerings to achieve a topline of `2,000 crore during the current fiscal. The new boost in product portfolio came in the form of CA Technologies (backup and recovery solutions for SMBs), NEC (flat-panel display), Microsoft (hardware) and CISCO (Fast Track range). Compuage was also appointed as the regional distributor for Delhi by Samsung (smartphone range including tablets) and Jetway (motherboards) for south and western regions. It also expanded its RD relationship with HP IPG to one of a national distributor. Even HP’s decision to discontinue its relationship with 7 out of its 9 telecom distributors benefited Compuage, as it replaced a regional telecom distributor Aditya Telelink for Gujarat.

It also got a contract from the Ministry of Power worth `50 crore, along with TCS. Looking forward to expand its role beyond IT, in the power sector, the company brought in an external investor, Bessemer Venture Partner, to pump in `80 crore. The company’s first milestone was obtaining the distribution rights for Nagpur for 15 years. It procured other projects in government such as a 12.5 year contract worth `4,700 crore for modernization of Maharashtra border check-post, Anna Centenary Library for 1 year for `24 crore and the security & surveillance contract from the Airport Authority of India for 2 years for `12 crore.

n FY11, it was domestic market growth of 19% that helped the company (which started once as a domestic software distributor) grow by 1%. While most export services firms were back in growth mode last year, Sonata dipped in export revenues. The reason being that unlike most others, Sonata makes most of its revenues from Europe, which showed a decline of 21%, despite a smart recovery in North America, which grew 48% for Sonata. Unlike the domestic market, Sonata’s export revenues come mostly from infrastructure, managed services and ADM. However it has built a significant product development business which would add to the bottomline. While software services contributed 77% of the profits and showed traction in terms of revenue and growth, domestic services accounted for 10% of the profits, and TUI Infotec contributed 13% of the profits. The company is looking at growing its services component in the domestic market, banking on e-commerce services with IBM, and testing services with HP for driving growth.

After 12 years of existence in India, on October 28, 2010, Canon saw its revenue for the year touch the `1,000 crore mark in India and it commemorated the occasion by billing the immediate next order to Sachin on October 29. The 1,000 crore barrier was breached, thanks to the strides made by the laser printer business where it garnered `494 crore revenue and increased its market share from 18% to 35%. Multiple government and enterprise deals like UID, Passport Seva, and hospital modernization were inked during FY11. The digital camera business too prospered and contributed `232 crore to the kitty even as Canon targeted doubling its digital SLR camera sales to 1 lakh units in 2011. Managed print services contributed 30% to its printing business with 50 customers planned for 2011. In a bid to become #1 in the professional and graphic printing industry, Canon joined forces with Netherlands based Oce and targeted revenue of `100 crore in 2011. 94 | July 31, 2011

Cloud and Big Data (result of growing applications) were the 2 strategic focus areas for EMC in FY11. Launching the cloud experience centers in Bengaluru jointly with Cisco was the precursor to EMC with the aim of being at the intersection of cloud and Big Data, a road the company plans to pursue harder in FY12. Its launch of a new family of uniďŹ ed storage systems (more than 40 in a day), EMC VNX, was in line with this strategy.

The target was to reach `1,000 crore in FY11—Rashi comfortably crossed the mark and did more thanks to the right cords it pulled during the year, with components and peripherals remaining its forte. While strong portfolios (ASUS) and fast-growing brands (Sandisk) ensured healthy margins, addition of new principals namely Lenovo (AMD based consumer PC and ThinkPad series), AData (memory products) and ViewSonic (monitors) contributed to the topline. Rashi also gained from HP’s move to discontinue its ties with 7 out of its 9 telecom distributors and instead appoint IT distributors—it would now focus exclusively on MOQ business (HP) related to thin clients and workstations.

For 3 years in a row, the IT revenues (IT services and software services) for Genpact saw a slide. The reorganization in FY09 wherein IT services and software services were given exclusively to one business leader failed to arrest the slide. Part of this is because its share of GE in IT is 50%, far higher compared to what it is in BPO. Also, Genpact does not play in the ADM space. So it did not benefit from the sudden spurt seen by others in FY11 which happened because of the pent-up demand of the earlier 2 years. RANK

The re-branding exercise too was not complete.

Apple India recently came under the scanner of Competition Commission of India for allegedly limiting the availability of iPhone4 to just Airtel and Aircel. Apple though claims that all iPhones sold in India are unlocked, allowing customers to switch carriers. This brouhaha means that Apple has started to take the Indian market seriously. The company surprised many by launching iPad 2 within months of its US release. Focus has been on sales through retailers, rather than bundling the device with service plans from mobile operators. It has partnered with BSNL to offer 3G services for its iPad. RANK

FCS software maintained 40% plus growth for the 2nd year in succession. After being listed in Luxembourg Stock Exchange through a GDR the previous year, the company is looking at raising `100 crore through preferential allotment of shares in India. Last year, it launched a mobile application division, partially through an acquisition. Its decision to open a subsidiary in the Middle East the previous year proved to be a good one, as FCS bagged an infrastructure management contract in that market, spread over 3 years—for data center optimization.

While rest of the Indian offshore vendors still focus on ‘Fortune 1000’, Zenith Infotech has grown by addressing the SMB space quite successfully. It drew from the benefits of the investment of `200 crore made in ‘PROUD’, its own cloud platform, as it bagged nearly 300 new clients. With more than 2,000 channel partners, the US (85%) continued to be the company’s prime contributor.
