According to Vishal Agrawal, Managing Director, India and SAARC, Avaya, India remains one of the top 10 markets for the company.
"We have seen customers adopting new technologies. Cloud adoption is picking in India. When it comes to proving digital transformation, we are strongly poised to deliver that," he told IANS.
Cloud computing has also created thousands of high-end jobs in India, he added.
There are challenges towards achieving digital transformation, like the requirements of customers that are changing at a rapid pace, while security is the topmost concern.

"We are completely ‘infosec-certified' and compliant; this is part of our general security assurance for customers and comes following a lot of investment in security and compliance," Helmy noted.
