The central theme that arises from the study of the information technology (IT) industry in India is the importance of the size and adaptability of the IT workforce in the country. The prominence that Indian companies receive globally is due primarily to their ability to provide knowledgeable and skilled IT workers to clients who have a lot of projects that need to be carried out. The IT industry in India has also been able to adapt fairly well to the changing needs of their global clients. Global businesses have not only been outsourcing their IT work to Indian IT service companies over the past three decades, but they have also started to locate in-house units in India in order to make appropriate use of the availability of this sizable and skilled workforce. © 2020 The Author(s).
