Business Today, India: Cognizant's CEO Says 2017 is the Year of Digital at Scale

“The IT industry is not in the middle of a demand constrained environment,” says Francisco D’Souza. “Some companies, however, are struggling with technology disruptions of the current decade, everything from mobile and cloud computing to automation.
