NIIT, the New Delhi based global software, training and educational multimedia firm, has fired off an ambitious plan to capture a major share of the European market.
The company wants to be a force in the IT services arena, explained NIIT founder and managing director, Rajendra Pawar. He was recently invited by the Geneva-based World Economic Forum to serve on the advisory council of the Global Growth Companies.
NIIT boasts corporate customers such as British Airways. It recently opened a software factory in Mumbai specifically to engineer software for the airline.
Said Pawar: "As an outcome of the just concluded planning exercise we decided to capitalise on our expertise in Net-centric computing, enterprise client-server and the Euro opportunities in Europe more aggressively.?
The company has just made its first overseas posting sending director, Gopal Chakravarthy, to Europe to spearhead NIIT?s efforts.
NIIT, worth $ 6.4 million, has emerged as the highest market capitalised north Indian after 16 years in operation.
