How are ISVs today contributing towards the digitization journey in India
Organisations that are understanding the value of technology and inculcating the same in their business are able to achieve better customer satisfaction than the ones that are still following traditional practices. In order to achieve business continuity, resilience and scalability, many Indian organisations are moving towards a cloud first world. As per an IDC report, the overall Indian public cloud services market is expected to reach $13.5 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 24% for 2021-26. As more and more businesses seek to make their business reliant on digitizations, ISVs will have an imperative role to play in enhancing their efforts. ISVs with their SaaS offerings will help business achieve their goals faster and focus more on their core offerings to improve innovation.
