They also highlighted that Microsoft currently contributes to almost 24.8% of Mindtree’s revenue.

Global tech companies have also reiterated that they will either increasing investments or continue to invest on Technology. “We plan to continue to invest in product development and recruit technical talent,” said Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. 

Alphabet, Microsoft and Google’s parent company has also commented on the issue and stated that it will be making a significant investment in “strategic growth opportunities.” Amazon too revealed that It will invest “aggressively” in technology platforms. 

“The onslaught of the coronavirus pandemic has also forced the use of apps and platforms to skyrocket- something that Edelweiss pegs as ‘Techolution’,” Business Insider reported.

Indian IT companies will not only benefit from investments but will also be profiting from cost cuts since work from home has cut down on commute and real estate expenses. 

Nevertheless, companies are exposed to the risk of the country’s GDP crashing, which would affect businesses and could even lead to some clients declaring bankruptcy. “Currency fluctuations and regulatory changes could be additional risks,” the report mentions.
