ITC Infotech strengthens consulting services to move up the value chain
Business Standard - 10 Oct 2013

Company eyes 3 times  growth in consulting operations over the next five years

Following the footprints of its larger peers, IT  services company ITC Infotech, the fully-owned subsidiary of diversified  business conglomerate ITC Group, aims to become an end-to-end partner for its  clients. With this view, the company has been strengthening its business  consulting operations and expects it to grow three times over the next five  years.

The information technology (IT) consulting operations currently make for 1.5%  of ITC Infotech’s total revenue, as against 1% a year ago.

“We would not want to get into the volumes game; we want to stick to the value  game. In five years’ time, I would probably be looking at a 3X growth in the  current numbers,” Sandeep Kumar, vice president and global head of business  consulting at ITC Infotech told Business Standard.

The Bangalore-based company hopes that over the next three to five years,  consulting would the front-end of all its client conversations, and help it  move up the value chain.

ITC Infotech currently has a 140-people team in its consulting practice, which  is expected to be raised to 500 over the next five years.

With a view to expand its consulting practice, ITC Infotech has made some  senior-level lateral hires in the space over the past three years. This  includes Kumar, who was brought in around 20 months ago from Infosys, where he  was the Management Consulting Services Leader, Manufacturing APAC. Kumar has  also been the head of business consulting for new markets and services at  Infosys.

The Business Consulting Group of the company also has some other senior-hands  that joined from larger peers like Infosys and Wipro.
