The Economy of Bangalore is an important part of the economy of India as a whole and contributes over 87% to the Economy of the State of Karnataka, accounting for 98% of the Software Exports of the State.

The establishment and success of high technology firms in Bangalore have led to the growth of Information Technology (IT) in India. IT firms in Bangalore employ about 35% of India’s pool of 2.5 million IT professionals and account for the highest IT-related exports in the country.

India is now one of the biggest IT capitals of the modern world and all the major players in the world IT sector are present in the country. It is estimated that the Indian IT industry would grow to about $300 billion by 2020, with software services and e-commerce leading the race. The government of India has taken several initiatives to promote the industry and several of the states have extended several benefits to the industry members.

On the Other hand, Chennai is nicknamed the “Detroit of India” (or the “Detroit of Asia”) due to the presence of major automobile manufacturing units and allied industries around the city. The 4-wheeler vehicle in Chennai is the base of 30% of India’s automobile industry and 35% of its automobile component industry. Besides the commercial industry, the Heavy Vehicles Factory (HVF) has been established in Avadi to produce military related vehicles. Avadi also boasts of the Combat Vehicle Research & Development Establishment (CVRDE), a new engine testing facility.

The Indian auto industry is one of the largest in the world. The industry accounts for 7.1 per cent of the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The Two Wheelers segment with 80 per cent market share is the leader of the Indian Automobile market owing to a growing middle class and a young population. Moreover, the growing interest of the companies in exploring the rural markets further aided the growth of the sector. The overall Passenger Vehicle (PV) segment has a 14 per cent market share.

Chennai Attendees Feedback

Rajendran, MD, Dynamatic Technologies Ltd

First of all, I thank HP for the invite. I have attended many seminars but this one I was thinking about what I will be surprising for me. But when I entered and start listening for the first five minutes I was thinking that these people are the marketing people and they want to sell their products and why I should attend now? Later on, when it was going I really understood it is like watching a movie and the climax. In just two hours of the conference, they made me realized how much we are facing the technology challenges in our offices and your company will suffer. It is a different seminar I have attended. Well done.

Gautam Gupta, Sr Manager IT Infrastructure Planner, Ford Motor Company

It was a very informative programme about the latest technology that is coming and can help us to grow our business. Today, Data Analytics is a major factor in business and everything is based on Data. So we need the technology for our business. What HP and Uneecops have brought as a solution is really important and relevant for the business.

I have seen a lot of new and innovative products today. We are already using HP workstations and servers in our company and this is the only reason I came here to attend the event.  I found 3 more useful devices here which can help our company for enhancement of new technology.

Sathyanarayanan A, GM – IT, Ashok Leyland Limited

It was the very insightful session and what new products that HP has showcased here are extraordinary.  The updated devices always help the organization to grow faster and HP products in terms of design and security, they are compact, more powerful more collaborative and more content oriented and when the hardware gets the new concept like designing for manufacturing, Autodesk is going to be compatible software. This is a very good combination. It was great eye-opening for us.
