Dell and CIO Association of India launch eMavericks

Dell and CIO Association of India (CAI) launched e-Mavericks, an initiative to nurture the e-commerce ecosystem by providing agile technology and access to angel investors. The platform is the first-of-its-kind providing an opportunity for e-commerce companies to meet and discuss business and technology related challenges and opportunity. 
E-commerce in India has been growing rapidly with the establishment of hundreds of new e-commerce companies. According to a research done by Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (ASSOCHAM) along with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), the e-commerce industry is likely to see a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 35 per cent and cross the $100-billion mark in value over the next five years. With the growing competitiveness in the sector, it has become imperative for e-commerce companies to give due consideration to the implementation of robust IT infrastructure in their respective organisations.
