Mr. Raju Vegesna, Chairman, said, “Given the proactive governance through the pandemic, India is better placed through the third phase that we are currently experiencing. Digital IT infrastructure across the country has been scaled up aggressively since Networks and Data Centers were declared ‘Essential’ services. Indian businesses are now convinced of the importance of business process continuity and converged services for seamless business output.
This has led to both a surge of services from Cloud based local startups and growing hyperscale investment in Indian IT infrastructure. We see this as a right time for Sify to scale up.”
Mr. Kamal Nath, CEO, said, “Enterprises looking for cloud-based Digital Transformation services see our Digital-first bouquet of services as a natural fitment for their evolving business demands. We are seeing an upswing in demand for our cloud@core services as the right delivery model for these demands. Our successful delivery for Hyperscalers is a strong endorsement of our agility and capability on the Data Center front and increases the attractiveness of our Data Centers to our Enterprise clients. With the market learning to work around the pandemic, these demands should continue”.
Mr. M P Vijay Kumar, CFO, said, “The customer demand for digital infrastructure services is encouraging. We will continue to expand on our Data center and network capacity. Our fiscal discipline will continue right through our investment journey without impacting customer experience.
