What Does the Future Hold for Tech Mahindra?

Tech Mahindra's LookingGlass integration and Andhra Pradesh SOC could help the company capitalize on an Indian managed security services market that is projected to grow.

The Indian managed security services market grew 24 percent year-over-year in 2016, market research firm Research and Markets indicated. Key factors that drove this market's growth included:

  • Digital India campaign to improve India's online infrastructure and increase internet connectivity across the country.
