“The global IT industry is undergoing a seismic change as the scope of IT buying expands to capture adjacencies beyond IT.

“In such a scenario, the balanced portfolio, integrated IT services and engineering capabilities of HCL have ensured that we remain service providers of choice for companies looking for business model transformation,” he added. This quarter the company also crossed the 100,000 employee milestone, Anant Gupta, president and chief executive officer of HCL Technologies, said.
