Indian Merchants Chamber (IMC) – IT awards is an initiative to acknowledge organizations which have contributed significantly in area of Technology and Business Transformation.

It has made life easier and more efficient for us, and India has now become a name to reckon with in the international IT sphere.”
Giving an overview on the IT sector, Dr. Lalit Kanodia, Chairman, IT Committee, IMC, said, “There was a need for taking up the issues of IT sector seriously in the current scenario. Software Exports from India were expected to be around $85 billion this year, despite the global meltdown. Together with domestic software revenues, IT Services constituted 1% of our GDP in 1998, 4% in 2008 and 6% today. If IT Hardware is included, IT constitutes about 7⅓% of our GDP. This is about half the share of entire manufacturing sector in our economy, and thus underlines the importance of IT to India.”
This being the first year of inception of annual IMC – IT awards, Aegis was amongst the few companies which got selected from close to 150 nominations. With more than 56 locations across 13 countries and over 55,000 employees, Aegis has placed customer experience (CX) management at the core of its business strategy.
