How has Tech Mahindra been active in promoting digital transformation?

We – as a digital-first company – have been a relentless advocate of digital transformation. With a visionary approach, we have embarked on a journey, intertwining technology and enterprise seamlessly and successfully positing ourselves as trailblazer. Through strategic investments, a profound understanding of customer needs, and a relentless pursuit of cutting-edge AI offerings we have unfurled a realm where businesses thrive amidst a digital paradigm shift. We have organized our business into five prominent business lines— digital, connectivity, engineering, processes, and cloud that fundamentally shape the organization with focus on telecom, manufacturing, banking, financial services, retail, and the public sector, just to name a few. Our commitment transcends mere provision; it's a dedication to empowering industries through comprehensive digital metamorphosis.

How does Tech Mahindra intend to contribute to the transformation of the MEA region's least developed nations by 2024?

In the vast landscape of the Middle East and Africa, we see a canvas of opportunities ripe for transformation. The region boasts some of the world's swiftest 5G networks, most innovative smart cities, and top-notch infrastructures. However, it's not just about the present; it's about harnessing this potential for a brighter future. Africa, with its untapped potential, particularly stands out. The extensive fiber networks being laid across the continent are not merely about digital enablement; they hold the promise of revolutionizing societies. From education to healthcare and the overall improvement of social standards, the influence of digital technology can be profound. Interestingly, Africa leads the world in adopting digital money, showcasing its readiness for technological advancements.

Our commitment to the Middle East and African markets runs deep. We are making substantial investments by establishing development centers in key nations like Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Oman, Egypt, South Africa, Kenya, and Nigeria. Our approach involves more than business; it's about fostering a localization strategy. We are empowering the youth with digital skills for personal growth and to give back to society and uplift their nations. This strategy aims for economic progress and for societal advancement. Through this initiative, we envision a ripple effect where digital empowerment leads to the overall upliftment of these nations.
