India is at the threshold of a third wave of IT entrepreneurship. First came IT services, from companies like TCS, Infosys, and Wipro. Then came a wave of internet and mobile consumer services, from the likes of MakeMyTrip to Flipkart and Ola. The next wave will be B2B software product companies, according to iSPIRT (Indian Software Product Industry Roundtable), a non-profit think tank which has just released an index of the top 30 such companies.
Acer plans to hold a major forum on October 15 in which it will discuss B2B strategies as well as announce new cloud partners. The company will, at a later date, host a series of activities to talk about its plans for the B2C market. Acer’s general manager of BYOC and tablet businesses Robert Wang said the company has plans for both Internet of things (IoT) and big data businesses which it will reveal gradually.
