“Additionally, the country needs innovative technology solutions like the ESDS patented cloud and data centers to accelerate businesses in today’s digital economy,” Fadnavis says.

Piyush Somani, ESDS chief executive and managing director, says the company is keen to partner the government’s Make in India and Digital India campaigns to help drive a connected economy, amplify business growth and project India as a innovation hub.
