    “Within the logistics sector, traditional digitization efforts have lasted several decades, however most of these technologies are now obsolete or based on on-premise solutions. Cloud computing has revolutionised numerous businesses, including logistics. Software as a Service, or SaaS, has emerged as a winning business model for new high-growth technology companies. Customers and technology suppliers both profit from this. Customers benefit from a product that is constantly upgraded, and it lowers the bar for technology providers to produce better products.

    Working in the SaaS space, I have seen that this model significantly reduces software costs. In addition, once a piece of software is produced and deployed in the cloud, it requires very little upkeep. When software was installed on-premise, a specialised support team was necessary, and each deployment required many servers to manage. There is only one deployment using SaaS, and it is delivered over the cloud. This translates in gross margins of 85 percent on average, which is a fantastic standard.

    According to the most recent Gartner forecast on Transportation Management Systems (TMS), the market will expand from $1.32 billion to $2.11 billion globally (from 2019 through 2024). That’s a 60 percent increase in just five years. And SaaS-based automation solutions are responsible for the majority of this. On National Technology Day, I am optimistic about the efforts put in by the technology workforce to build SaaS platforms that are true game changers in the logistics industry.” –Dhruvil Sanghvi, Founder & CEO, LogiNext

    “At NetApp, innovation is at the heart of everything we do, and it all starts with our ability to harness the power of the data we have and use it to change people’s lives. Management of storage, regardless of where it exists across clouds, infrastructure, and as a service, has become a vital competence for all enterprises as India experiences the age of cloud adoption and data explosion.

    NetApp is many years ahead of its closest competitors in the fight to modernise and transform in the cloud. Because of its unique ability to function smoothly across hybrid clouds, NetApp’s flagship data management software, ONTAP, is immensely popular with its customers throughout the world. Our secret sauce is ONTAP, which was co-developed by the company’s Bengaluru R&D team.

    Our industry-leading storage infrastructure capabilities may be expanded to any format – on premises and in the cloud – and even between cloud service providers using ONTAP. This is the cornerstone for hybrid multi-cloud, and it also simplifies the management of both structured and unstructured data, reaping tremendous benefits in terms of manageability, storage efficiency, and interoperability. The team in India is responsible for a large portion of this effort.

    On National Technology Day, we look back with pride on how our innovations work to make our customers take advantage of technology at an accelerated pace.”- Ravi Chhabria, Managing Director, NetApp India
