    Thirty Indian software companies have decided to splinter from the dominant IT industry body, National Association of Software and Services Companies (Nasscom), as they look to promote the growth of domestic software sector.


    The association, called the Indian Software Product Industry Round Table, or iSpirt, has been formed with the vision that India now has the basic building blocks to develop a powerful software product industry that can help transform India, as also deliver invaluable solutions to the rest of the world.
    All of the founding members individually have strong customer bases in India or around the world. The objective now is to share expertise and experiences, and create a larger awareness in society and government about the critical role the industry can play — something they believe they cannot effectively do under the larger Nasscom umbrella.

    Nasscom is a shitty organization anyway. Filled with fools. They can't get a single thing right.

    This is a good news. We keep boasting of India as an 'IT powerhouse'. But we see no Google, no Amazon, no Microsoft, no Firefox coming out from the stables of an Indian Company. IMHO, product software is the way to go. This is a fortunate turn of events.
    Excellent article.

    Here is the reason for that -

    A wake-up call for Nasscom

    The parallel organization set up by a few technology product firms is a challenge to the principal lobby group for the Indian technology sector

    The change is good but it's going to create big daddies & strong lobby.

    Is NASSCOM dominated by politicians?
