India Will Soon Be Global Digital Capability Hub

The budget should focus on three pertinent aspects, says RAMANUJAM KOMANDURI, Country Manager, Pure Storage India.

The year 2022 was a difficult yet extraordinary year in many ways. Digital has taken centre stage as the effects of the pandemic continue to recede. India is already one of the fastest growing digital economies, and we will continue to strive towards becoming the global digital capability hub.

The budget should focus on three pertinent aspects.

Firstly, hasten infrastructure expenditures in digital technologies, since technological investments are thought to have a multiplier effect on the economy.

Secondly, increase spending on R&D to foster innovation and tap into the amazing engineering talent that we have in the country.

Finally, enhance the focus on sustainability as climate change requires urgent attention and action and requires all of us, as individuals, organizations, and the government to pull together, utilizing environmentally sustainable technology.
