CII to collaborate with Centre to promote cloud computing

 
The Confederation of Indian Industry's (CII) national IT committee has tied up with the central government for use of cloud computing among small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in the country.

"We have earmarked two areas to work with the government. One is enabling cloud computing in India and developing more applications revolving around that," said committee chairman Bhaskar Pramanik.

Exuding confidence that the SME sector would be the major driver of the country's future growth, he said that these companies were unable to use technology.

"So, we are looking into how technology can be used to enhance their businesses," he stated.

45 percent of India's manufacturing output and 40 percent of exports come from the sector.
