India initiative on Global ICT segment – A step towards Innovation

India is considered to be home of brilliant brains on the analytical side. Post liberalization in 90’s, global organization flooded into India to tap Indian consumer. It also generated millions of Jobs in India. The liberalization enabled Indian Organization such as TCS, Wipro, Infosys and many more in their respective domain. The electrifying growth in IT helped India to be hub of IT super power mind and helped most of the Global 500 companies in enhancing or streamlining their IT infrastructure. The Telecom sector growth in from 2001 to 2010 also attracted Technology companies from around the world to be part of the growth. It is evident that India was part and parcel of many innovative products launched by Global firm but it is also clear that being an outsourcing organization, India lost out on the patent part. US, Japan and Europe became the hub of innovations and leaders in defining the standardization processes whereas China took opposite direction to redefine their own standardization processes. China got successful negated the criticisms by clearly defining the government policies and opening up most of the potential sectors. The short approval processes and incentives helped china in attracting huge FDI in manufacturing sector and in turn influenced the standardization processes in positive way. Even though India defined the processes clearly but delay in approval of processes worked as show stopper for innovative organization to be in India and tap into skilled resources. The focus on outsourcing and revenue forced organizations to offer Job specific training to professional to enable them fulfill customer requirement. In last few years post bubble burst in BPO sector, government and industry veterans stressed that India should be focussing on contributing standardization processes in ICT domain. The vision was to help local and global organization to be on the same platform in defining and refining their product line based on the agreed standardization process to reduce Interoperability, portability as well as increase security across converged network. The Global ICT standardization for India came into existence supported by multiple ministries of India, standardization bodies and leading research organization . CTIF is research arm of Danmark based Aalborg University . The  GISFI, vision is to bring India Innovation and contribution towards the ICT domain to the world forum and in turn help growing Organization to get more visibilities in the Technological area. The larger vision of the forum was to give exposure to Indian Universities as well as Students to interact with leading global Universities in the field and Innovations, Standardizations and Patents. Post three years of forum inception leading technological and service providers community are contributing on multiple technology domain. The initiative attracted flurry of collaboration with global universities, research labs and standardization bodies. The forum focuses on security, IoT, cloud, applications and next generation telecom networks (5G) helped Indian and Global organization to share knowledge and potential on the same. Being a part of one of the working group as a contributing member, I believe that the major beneficiary apart from processes and organization; Indian Students and Universities are getting direct exposure of domain veterans. University collaboration with CTIF enabled students to pursue their masters in leading International Universities in the technological specialized area whereas 100’s of Indian P.hD students are enrolled with multiple CTIF affiliated universities across global geographies. The new initiative should be populated across the professional group so that more and more organizations and professional can reap the benefits out of it.
