An article in conversation with Mr. Som Mittal, President, NASSCOM highlighting his journey at NASSCOM during the last 6 years. The article states that the Indian IT industry is a unique industry, where companies small and large, Indian and MNC's products and services, collaborate as fiercely as they compete. He added that after learning from the IT industry he would like to share his views with young companies and CEOs. He will also work on the social initiatives that he was previously working for in the digital literacy week for the differently abled people.
