IT services major Tech Mahindra has announced that it is mulling 50 per cent revenue share from digital business as it has trained 70 per cent of its workforce in the digital domain.
The firm in this regard has partnered with Future Skills, a NASSCOM initiative to boost the reskilling of employees.
“We, at Tech Mahindra believe that successful digital transformation lies in ‘disrupting one’s own business before others do’.

‘’Our partnership with NASSCOM has majorly aided this digital transformation journey aimed at reskilling associates in the organization, to make them ‘Digital Savvy’. In the near future, we are targeting at least 50% revenue share from digital businesses while continuing our growth trajectory of around 30% YoY,’’ added Mitra.
FutureSkills is backed by Edcast, an organisation in Silicon Valley aimed at personalised learning.
Tech Mahindra has also established a Centre of Excellence which motivates its employees to tailor solutions running on Blockchain technology. The IT firm is also infusing money in other programs to drive skilling on next-generation technologies.
