Surprise, surprise

Guess who's the biggest player in the Indian tech market?

And if you guessed anything other than IBM, you'd be wrong. According to a recent report, which Steve makes mention of over on his blog, IBM beat out it's closest rival Wipro -again.

Steve mentions possible reasons for this, including IBM's wide R&D base and a scalability factor.

I'm not too much of an expert in this field, so I wouldn't really know - but I find it telling that Infy and TCS didn't even warrant a mention.

My basic problem - if our primary advantage is cost (and when I say our, I mean Indian firms), and if that is a huge success abroad - then all the more so here, in India! No?

And if not, why not?
