Mr. Raju Vegesna, Chairman, said, “India’s Data Policy is entering the final phase of being adopted into law. This will give shape and clarity to data ecosystem and formalize regulation around Data security, which will help accelerate investment in India’s Data Center landscape. This will also lead to India being viewed as a more viable interconnect point between Asia and the Middle East by international connectivity players.
Enterprises exploring digital transformation and government entities looking to automate social welfare systems will be an important target audience for Sify’s digital transformation tools and services”.
Mr. Kamal Nath, CEO, said, “As Enterprises pursue their digital transformation and digitalization objectives, they are also re-calibrating their digital infrastructure across hybrid cloud, network, security and edge infrastructures. Customer experience, business continuity, cyber security, application modernization and overall adoption of AI models are the prime drivers for this recalibration.
Our infrastructure investments and services portfolio are fundamentally aligned to meet the customer goals. Simultaneously, we are continuously engaged with our customers to identify their specific needs and selectively recalibrate our propositions to support the same”.
Mr. M P Vijay Kumar, ED & Group CFO, said, “We continue to make substantial investment in capacity creation and people to build skill sets for IT services opportunities we foresee, given the digital transformation engagements that India Inc is actively pursuing. This has led to the accompanying depreciation and interest cost, reflecting on our net profit.
We are also actively scaling up our sustainable measures across all businesses, especially our Data Centers.
The cash balance at the end of the quarter was INR 7570 Million”.
