Japan/ Noida, India – 13th May, 2013. An IDC 2012 Japan CIO Survey report* states that the Japan sales of HCL Technologies Ltd. (HCL), a leading global IT services provider, have led the company into its top position among offshore vendors in Japan.
According to the report, typically, Indian offshore vendors' Japan IT services businesses are developed for foreign Japan subsidiaries with which the vendor already has a global relation with the parent company; however, HCL has many Japan company clients. This presents a major opportunity for HCL to expand its business together with the global development of Japan companies both of IT and Engineering Services.
