Having embarked on the journey in 2003-04, it was in FY05 that Datacraft
completed the metamorphosis from a pure network integrator into an end-to-end
solution provider. India also became one of the principal hubs for all Datacraft
operations across AP. Therefore, Datacraft consolidated its Managed Services
operations in five STARtrac Centers across Asia into a Global Services Center (GSC)
in Bangalore with Singapore as the DR center. One of the country’s largest
private insurance companies became the first customer at GSC.

SBI awarded a $1 million contract to design, build and manage a network
connecting all its 57 offices abroad across 20 countries. On the SI front,
Datacraft was appointed by Jabil Circuit India to set up an IP network as well
as integrate IP telephony, security and wireless solutions at its second
manufacturing plant in Pune.
