Ã¢â‚¬Å“I believe we have set in place the people and processes to scale the businesses going forwards over the next three quarters. We continue to forge alliances with global leaders such as Microsoft & NEC to offer solutions tailored to the needs of the Indian market to catalyze growth. We have also entered into an alliance with a large Indian infrastructure provider and the benefits of this association will be felt going forwards. During the last few quarters, we focused on integrating our enterprise businesses with the strategy of offering end-to-end managed services for companies in India. In the last Quarter we have forged our consumer offerings into a single integrated whole to unlock the synergies across our portal, the cyber cafes and broadband to home. We intend to market our services aggressively once our strategies are in place to accelerate growth, and for a larger share of the growing Indian market for the services we offer I am confident that the results of all these initiatives will see growth and profitability as planned for the year’ Raju Vegesna, Chairman & CEO, Sify, said .
