Top Product Based Companies To Work For In 2022
“At present, younger companies are creating new technologies and products whereas,  for the past 25 years, the IT sector in India has taken the services route. Product-based companies are not replicable and ideas with intellectual property rights form its crux that adds an advantage.” ~Srikanth Srinivasan, Regional Director of NASSCOM

As the IT industry has expanded swiftly in the 21st Century, product-based companies are considered as the way forward as opposed to service-based companies.
