The great Indian saga of business innovation

India’s economy expanded 4.1 percent in the first three months of 2022, outpacing other major economies. The undisputed drivers of this remarkable growth story are small and medium businesses (SMBs).

Today, India is home to 48 million emerging business that contribute 29 percent of its GDP. They are cornerstones in India’s growth story and account for about 50 percent of the overall exports. Trends indicate that in the next five years, 3 percent of medium-sized businesses in India will cross the USD 30 million revenue threshold. When powered by innovation, these growth figures can skyrocket to further heights and strengthen the nation’s economic footprint.

Innovation the hero in emerging digital story
Ideally, emerging business should feel like they are in the driver’s seat, if they are a part of such a thriving industry. Unfor­tunately, that is not always the case. From rising costs and evolving customer demands to increasing competi­tion and compliance risks, several challenges stand in the way of explosive growth.

To survive in this paradigm and capitalize on their immense potential, emerging business must be able to deliver real-time, seamless, and unique experiences anytime, anywhere, and on any platform to their employees and customers alike. There are various innovative products and services available to achieve this. But, if done in isolation or within siloes, they fail to render a coherent experience. The answer is to first build a disruption-ready and pro-innovation network infrastructure that can support new and reimagined offerings.

So, how can emerging business retain their focus on innovation and customer experience while digitally transforming themselves? Subscribing to the services of a trusted partner that not only offers user-centric applications but also manages things end-to-end to ensure hassle-free transformations is the answer.

The ideal sandbox for innovation
Succeeding in the overpopulated and competitive market does not necessarily require expensive and complex innovations.
