Nasscom, the country’s software lobby, will revise its growth forecast downward from 10-12 per cent this year. This is after its biggest members such as Tata Consultancy Services, Wipro, Cognizant and Infosys have struggled to grow faster in a more uncertain global environment.
These companies are seeing clients shift to faster adoption of automation, cloud and digital technologies, while cutting on traditional information technology (IT) services. Both Infosys and Cognizant have cut their annual revenue forecast, for these reasons. Nasscom says this is a good indication of where the sector is headed.
