Analysis OF Indian IT Industry: Weaknesses
we have seen strengths of Indian IT industry. But apart from its global infrastructure
and esteemed reputation in international market, Indian IT sector also face
some major challenges and issue which act as hindrance in the development of IT
industry in Indian Arena around the globe. Now we examine “W” of SWOT and learn
weaknesses that are needed to be take care for the smooth operation of software
development in India So, Here we
enlisted all the points which are weakening the position of software
development in the country.
ack of Package Orientation:
some of the software companies have started making shrink-wrapped software
packages, the Indian IT industry as a whole is still not oriented across
development of world class 'shrink-wrapped' software applications and packages.
Thus, the industry is not able to take benefits of a multiplier effect for
growth in revenues.
Lack of Domestic
to Lack of adequate computerisation, this has led to a relatively weak domestic
and local software market. Even, the PC penetration rate is very low these days.
Lack of Internet
very low penetration of PC’s, it is but obvious that Internet penetration is
also poor. At the end of the year 2000, India could only boast of 7,15,000
Internet connections with about 2.8 million users. The recently announced
Internet Service Provider policy is expected to improve the situation.
Indian software industry possesses the domain expertise to absorb and use the
latest technology. However, barring a few exceptions, it has still not able to produce
enough original technology breakthroughs. Succinctly put, the IT industry has
not created original operating systems (OS) or any other new computer languages
and technologies, which could be used globally.
Mission Critical Real Time
of the leading software companies in India have managed software development
for mission critical real time operations. However, the industry as a whole still
does not have much expertise and experience in this area.
Project Management Skills:
the Indian software IT industry has been growing at a fast pace, majority of
the project managers are becoming entrepreneurs, thus as a result ,creating a gap in demand and supply of project management
developing a robust venture creation procedure, India still faces lots of
constraints. To create a prolific venture community, India requires focusing on
boosting every stages of venture creation process and having simplified
procedures so that the domestic and local Venture Capital movement can flourish
and foreign Venture Capital funds can be attracted.
a few exceptions of isolated cases, not much exists in providing software applications
in innumerable local languages. Thus, computer software development penetration
in India is restricted to merely the English speaking majority.
