During the first two decades of the 21st Century, India became the global hub for IT outsourcing as Western companies off-shored their information technology requirements to leading consultancy firms such as TCS, Wipro and Infosys. India is now in the cusp of a new technology renaissance as global forces such as business digitisation, the migration of computing onto cloud platforms, the development of artificial intelligence as a business tool and the increased demands for cyber security, are now driving a resurgence in higher margin IT services and strategic consulting.

This paper explores the sources of competitive advantage that cloud platform service providers - offering artificial intelligence solutions - are currently building plus the sustainability of this newly emerging trend and the opportunities for Indian IT firms. The paper also considers how - by broadening the attack face for malicious activities – cloud-based AI is creating opportunities for Indian IT firms to develop high margin cyber security and cyber resilient software products.
