So guess whose the lucky guy this season ? I feel its ” HCL ” founded by Mr.Shiv Nadar .Having had a strong start this year,this reputed firm has recently signed up a $170 million (thats Rs.848 Crore!!!!!) , 5 year contract with Microsoft. This is its thrid big deal this season after bagging a seven-year, $350-million contract from The Readers’ Digest Association (RDA) and a
Rs 393-crore end-to-end IT services outsourcing deal with general insurance firm National Insurance Company . Xerox Corp has also confirmed that it has struck a $100 million six year contract for HCL to manage a data-centre consolidation programme across North America and Europe, intended to reduce operation costs and improve disaster-recovery options.
HCL needs to be appreciated for finding such opportunities amidst issues like Global recession and Satyam scam .HCL is expected to deploy about 600 employees on the Microsoft contract , with 250 employees having already started on it .
Now these are positive signs of IT industry in India !
