Narayana Murthy, co-founder of Infosys in a recent interview to the media, which to our good luck was not banned by the government, made a very telling statement. He clearly mentioned that Infosys always lost money on projects done for the Indian Government. Murthy, not being at the helm of affairs at Infosys in the present time, perhaps gave himself the opportunity to speak a little more freely. Being an industry veteran he probably sensed this was not an exclusive Infosys problem, but prevalent among the top IT companies of India.
The Goa Passport Office headed by Agnelo Fernandes, a man on a mission, uses technology to the hilt with the underlying goal to serve the customer, even if they are designed by the Central Government. It is time all government heads visit his offices to understand how processes are digitized and every bottleneck systematically eliminated. Guess who maintains their website, naturally India's leading IT company Tata Consultancy Services. (http://www.heraldgoa.in/

Mexico will invest US$620mn in expansion of the Internet of Things (IoT) and devices in 2015, some 12.7% more than in 2014, according to consultancy IDC. Last year the country spent US$550mn on connected objects.
The increase in investment follows a global and regional trend. The consultancy said that Latin America is expected to invest US$8.8bn in IoT this year, mostly in transportation, government, manufacturing and public services.
"Interaction and communication between different sectors of society is fundamental for the IoT ecosystem to develop," said Diego Anesini, Latin America research director at IDC.
The consultancy said in July that the number of connected objects in Latin America will grow to 827mn by 2020, up from 244mn in 2014. This is equivalent to a CAGR of 22.5%, compared to the 19.2% CAGR expected globally.
Despite the expected rapid growth, Latin American companies are only devoting a small chunk of their IT budgets to IoT in comparison with the rest of the world. According to Indian IT outsourcing company Tata Consulting Services (TCS), Latin American companies will spend 0.23% of their IT budgets on IoT initiatives in 2015, as opposed to 0.45% in North America, 0.40% in Europe and 0.34% in Asia-Pacific.
