Q. As you look back at the four Lockdowns we’ve had, what according to you would be the notable positive takeaways? Or some people or entities who did very well?


A.

While the Covid pandemic is a great leveller in sufferings for companies of all sectors, I think for the IT sector it would be boon and every business will have to take a crash course into tech-led transformation.
