Stressing that tech giant IBM has an incredible focus on India, its CEO Arvind Krishna in February reiterated that the company is on the path to expand its operations and services in the country. IBM currently employs 380,000 people serving clients in 170 countries and India has the highest number of IBM-ers outside of the US and is a key research and innovation hub for the tech giant that set up its first office in the country almost 26 years back.

“We have a lot of collaborations in India and the regulatory framework promotes export of our services from the country,” Mr Krishna said during a virtual media interaction. “We are really proud that we provide services to the country’s private sector banks, public sector banks, telecom companies and organisations in various other sectors,” he emphasised, adding that the company is set to expand its services in the country. “The Indian market is very vibrant. To leverage this market further, organisations will have to have robust digital infrastructure which present an opportunity for us, as without digital infrastructure, organisations will find it hard to take their services to wider audience,” he noted.
