How is Pegasystems committed to BPM in India?
While other vendors were acquiring smaller companies, we were committed to
our vision of maintaining leadership. We have grown a lot in the last two years.
Our direct presence in India is almost two and a half years old. We expect our
revenues to double in the next two and a half years. We intend to strengthen our
base in India. There are various sectors that we would like to concentrate on,
namely insurance, telecom, banking, etc.
What specific plans have been chalked out for India in the future?
India and China are the two major emerging markets that offer a lot of
potential, and we have chalked out unique plans for both these nations. There
are a few key verticals that we would like to focus on, namely banking,
insurance, healthcare, government, life sciences, telecom, etc. These are
segments that hold a lot of promise. Telecom is one promising sector that is
supposed to explode with a huge number of customers, and we intend to tap this
segment too. We have plans for direct sales for this year. We basically intend
to double the R&D base in our organization as we lay major bets on our products.
