The Information technology industry in India has gained a brand identity as a knowledge economy due to its IT and ITES sector.
The IT–ITES industry has two major components: IT Services and business process outsourcing (BPO). The growth in the service sector in India has been led by the–ITES sector, contributing substantially to the increase in GDP, employment, and exports. The sector has increased its contribution to India’s GDP from 1. 2% in FY1998 to 7. 5% in FY2012. According to NASSCOM, the IT–BPO sector in India aggregated revenues of US$100 billion in FY2012, where export and domestic revenue stood at US$69. billion and US$31. 7 billion respectively, growing by over 9%. The major cities that account for about nearly 90% of this sector exports are Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Pune, Kolkata, and Coimbatore. Export dominates the IT–ITES industry and constitutes about 77% of the total industry revenue. Though the IT–ITES sector is export-driven, the domestic market is also significant with robust revenue growth.  The industry’s share of total Indian exports (merchandise plus services) increased from less than 4% in FY1998 to about 25% in FY2012.

Competitors: TCS, Infosys, Wipro, HCL Tech, Mahindra Satyam, etc..
Application Management Services.
Rivalry among Firms:
Low-cost, little differentiation positioning.
High industry growth Michael porters 5 force model: Swot analysis:
Strengths: Tech Mahindra, while not the first name in the TVS arena, claims an impressive roster of telecom operator customers, and Tech Mahindra’s integration with sister company, Mahindra Satyam, matches Tech Mahindra’s telecom industry expertise with Satyam’s established enterprise IT expertise serving vertical industries in BSS and BPO. Tech Mahindra boasts a full range of telecom network optimization services. It has been assessed and awarded a CMMI Level 5 (v1. ) and System Security processes SSECMM Level 3 rating. Tech Mahindra is a large, global operation and the largest software exporter in India.
Weaknesses: Despite Tech Mahindra’s ability to serve customers from an “art to part” perspective. Whereas rival IT giants, such as IBM, HP, etc. , often partner alongside network equipment providers in services engagements, Tech Mahindra is less of a partner with equipment vendors and more of a direct competitor and threat in areas such as network optimizations, and increasingly software design and integrations. While the lines of competition between Tech Mahindra and traditional telecom network vendors are still relatively distinct, this line will continue to blur over time as concepts such as OSS/BSS integrations, network optimizations, and BPOs within vertical markets take on increasing importance. Despite Tech Mahindra’s overt focus on the telecom industry, it is not the only market that the company deals with. Going forward, as it is integrated with Mahindra Satyam, the telecom focus runs the risk of being obscured within a larger set of businesses. While Tech Mahindra’s revenue stream seems well balanced based upon the geographic distribution of 50% Europe, 30% North America, and 20% ROW, its revenue based upon clients tells a different story.
Opportunities: Tech Mahindra needs to consider being more vocal about its success with telecom operator engagements. Further on the traction demonstration front, Tech Mahindra should detail any and all success that it is having with telecom network optimization projects – particularly on an end-to-end basis. Tech Mahindra should take care to highlight instances where it cooperates with traditional network infrastructure players – in outsourced R&D for example. As soon as possible, Tech Mahindra should publicize instances of how its integration with Mahindra Satyam has resulted in a broadening of telecom-focused engagements in vertical markets. Tech Mahindra should make it a strategic imperative to broaden the key customer base to reduce the revenue reliance on these key customers.
Threats: IBM should play up its informal partnership with Asia/Info to send the message that while it has broad and deep. Smaller, yet still important, pure plays like Wipro need to respond to Mahindra’s integration of its telecom and enterprise practice so as to let the market know where they stand with respect to Mahindra’s new value proposition. Network integrators such as Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson, and NSN need to provide as much evidence as possible that will demonstrate their strengths in areas such as OSS integration and business transformation services. Network equipment vendors such as Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson, NSN, etc. need to also play up the value that developing telecom products bring to the professional services arena. Telecom network vendors need to be careful when tackling vertical market network opportunities. Share Value of Tech Mahindra at NSE.
Conclusion: Through the analysis, Tech Mahindra is a global leading company in the IT sector. It has been maintaining certain strategies to be a leader in the IT industry. Its revenue in 2011 is at INR 1,261. 5 crore.
