Indian firms like Sundaram Business Services in Chennai and Australia should be on your radar for tech innovation – A KPMG survey ranks India third among countries that show the most promise for tech innovation. India Global Business has reported on the results:
The Indian tech industry has always stood as a byword for resilience, agility and innovation – and a latest survey from KPMG has just confirmed that, ranking the country third among jurisdictions that show the most promise for developing disruptive global technologies.
In its annual Global Technology Industry Innovation Survey, KPMG ranked Bengaluru at eighth position among the top 10 cities.
More than 800 industry leaders were surveyed for the report which said 39 per cent believe global ‘hub’ cities such as London, Singapore, and Tel Aviv will continue to play a vital role, enabling talent to coalesce and collaborate in communities with a solid digital infrastructure.
Federica Saliola, joint director of the World Development Report, said: “The internet and digital technology are the new superhighways of trade. India, where most workers are employed in the informal sector and the participation of women in the labour force is low, has an opportunity to seize the opportunities that digital technology provides,” said. “Innovation is also a friend to entrepreneurs and India’s entrepreneurial spirit makes it an ideal incubator for start-ups to thrive,” he said.
