Just a glance at this year's agenda of the IT industry's flagship event - Nasscom Leadership Forum - can tell that this industry has been crying for change.
New emerging models
The first session after the inaugural one was on data analytics and the next one was on entrepreneurship. Data analytics is one of the areas out of the stack of new emerging models - conveniently titled SMAC (social media, mobility, analytics and cloud) - that have consumed the chiefs of the industry as they wade through the current economic and technological challenges and try to regain their entrepreneurial spirit. Top of the agenda is to prepare a sustainable blueprint for the future of the industry which is clocking over $100 billion annually.
