The ongoing pandemic and uncertain market conditions have had a significant impact on Indian organizations’ IT strategies. IT delivery witnessed a massive change with organizations aggressively adopting a cloud-first approach, digital transformation and putting even more pressure on legacy data protection.

Organizations also faced tremendous IT challenges with respect to legacy systems and data protection.
