India can become world’s data science service provider
Can India provide an army of data scientists to the world, like the IT engineers that it provided in the last decade?
In the last two decades, we have seen a huge impact of information technology (IT) on businesses. Today, almost all business transactions and processes, internal and external, happen on a computer or mobile and by the use of a network, primarily the Internet. The penetration of smartphones has extended this automation to the last mile i.e. to the consumers. Large network-based information systems facilitate various business processes such as sales order, financial transactions, human resource management, customer service management and so on—the Aadhaar project being a splendid example of IT reaching the last mile.
