Annually, ASAP recognizes some of the best alliances, partnerships, and collaborations orchestrated by member companies during the ASAP Alliance Excellence Awards Ceremony.

New ASAP Corporate Member Larsen & Toubro Infotech Offers Diverse Avenues for Partnering, Including India’s Smart Cities

Posted By Cynthia B. Hanson, Tuesday, December 20, 2016

This is the first in a series of blog posts welcoming seven new corporate members into the ASAP fold. Larsen & Toubro Infotech (L&T Infotech) is a publicly listed company with a presence in more than 20 countries and close to one billion dollars in revenues. Its parent company is L&T Infotech, a construction & engineering conglomerate with $16 billion in revenues headquartered in India with a strong presence in the Middle East and Asia. L&T Infotech is also a major player in India’s smart cities program, where it has held several key partnerships with industry leaders. Company representative Giri Rajaiah, vice president of digital transformation, provided the following information about L&T Infotech’s goals as it takes the leap into corporate membership.

 

What inspired your team to join ASAP at the corporate level?

L&T Infotech is an IT and digital services organization that has been servicing global enterprise clients for 20 years. The company works with different technology vendors across the IT and digital services spectrum, such as Microsoft, CISCO, Amazon Web Services, IBM, HP, Dell, etc., several of which are ASAP global members. The company recently joined ASAP at the corporate level so that our newly established and institutionalized global alliance team can benefit on best practices in the industry, learn from others, and network with peers as we build our ecosystem of partners.

 

How do you anticipate ASAP benefitting you and your team?

We expect to benefit from membership in multiple ways. The most significant areas that come to mind are:

  • Networking with peers
  • Networking with technology and digital services vendors who are looking for global partners
  • Learning industry best practices
  •  Participating in alliance-related events, conferences, summits, and local chapter meetings to improve our educational base
  • Benefitting from valuable partnering information published in Strategic Alliance Magazine, the ASAP E-news, blog posts, webinars, research studies, and other ASAP media offerings

Is there anything else you want fellow members to know about L&T Infotech at this time?

We are in the process of incubating a startup ecosystem within the organization, mostly based in India, and are willing to entertain any upcoming technology disruptors. Our key alliance and partnership interests are in the Internet of Things, cloud technologies, digital solutions companies, artificial intelligence, IT and robotic process automation, and startups.
