    Leading IT and mobility solutions provider Infinite Computer Solutions had a modest beginning in the year 1999 September & During the year 2005-2006, the company acquired Hyderabad based Datagrid Services to diversify & fuel the business into new revenue segment with an intent to de-risk the business model. The Company was renamed as Infinite BPO Private Limited.During the year 2007-2008, Infinite Computer Solutions Inc, USA the wholly owned subsidiary acquired Comnet International Co. USA, a telecommunication focused product development Company based in Chicago, USA through a 100% Stock Purchase.

    Telecom focused Indian IT vendors that have built proven capability, by working closely with large carriers across various segments of the telecom carrier value chain are likely to have the right industry insight. They are now strategically positioned to ride the next wave of growth in IT services within the telecom domain. The comfort level of the clients has the potential of spawning a new era in relationship extension as clients would agree to offshore critical applications. This could help the customers reduce the total cost of ownership for these applications and cut the time to market enhancements or new roll outs. Both carrier and OEM focused engagements will likely be key beneficiaries and hence any Indian IT vendor that spans across both the domains is uniquely positioned to benefit across the entire value chain & In the past, most of the fortune 500 customers would limit their set of choices for off shoring to just top few names in the Indian IT space. This phenomenon is now undergoing a transition as some of the customers are now seeking alternate vendors than restricting themselves to a select few. We believe that - 50 -some of the fortune 500 customers now feel that they might get higher attention and hence more value for money for their large to midsized engagements with an alternate mid-sized vendor than with one of the large ones. The other driver for this shift is that some of the non fortune 500 customers themselves are wary of approaching the large vendors for they might not get the desired attention. For growing midsized organizations that have the right size and established pedigree, the above trend provides enormous opportunity to expand and demonstrate our value proposition to customers said Upinder Zutshi to Indian Affairs.

    The Award will be presented in a glittering award ceremony with top 300 iconic leaders across the globe at a suburban hotel in Mumbai on 21st June 2013.

  • Dr. Mukesh Hariawala To Address on " Barack Obama’ 2

    Award Winning Healthcare Economist Dr Mukesh Hariawala will deliver a Keynote Lecture on the changing Business Outlook Post Barack Obama’ 2nd Term

    Mumbai, Maharashtra, India, Monday, 13th May 2013: Noted Healthcare Economist & Award Winning Indian American Surgeon Dr Mukesh Hariawala will deliver an important Keynote Address at the 4th Annual India Leadership Conclave & Indian Affairs Business Leadership Awards 2013 ( organised by Asia’s most analytical news media Indian Affairs ( ) in association with the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Govern ment of India at a power packed industry gatherings on Friday,21st June 2013 in a suburban hotel in mumbai,india. Network 7 Media Group is organizing its historic 4th Edition of India Leadership Conclave 2013 with top leading faces of india addressing at the conclave under the theme “New India, Agenda For Change”. More than 300 business tycoons, diplomats, politicians,social reformers & delegates from middle east, Europe are expected to attend the high profile set to throw a new directions to the new india.
    Dr Mukesh Hariawala will specially fly from Boston, US, to India to deliver the Keynote Address on " Barack Obama’ 2nd Term, Business Implications on Indian Healthcare System”. With the president's re-election, "Obamacare" moveing forward, President Obama's health plan, the Affordable Care Act (ACA), includes provisions that require upgrades to health care IT; many health systems already have begun the process of converting to electronic medical records. The ACA also has provisions that directly affect consumers, such as allowing everybody to apply for health insurance electronically. The changes also encourage more electronic communication and coaching between providers and patients, such as video chats instead of office visits. In general, Americans can expect a continuation of Obama's first-term technology policies. Look for more battles over how much control telecommunications companies have over the Internet, and for efforts to shore up cyberdefenses and increase access to broadband. There are mixed responses in india on what Indian Healthcare system is going to gain out of the Obamacare, Experts feel that Dr Mukesh Hariawala’s lecture will throw new lights & open up wider debate considering Hariawala’s close understanding of Indo-American business implications.In a statement to Indian Media, Hariawala has stressed Medical Tourism revenues , increased IT contracts, generic drug company revenues, overseas insurance company investments in Indian healthcare facilitated by friendly retail FDI policies, all cumulatively would accelerate the GDP trajectory from a limping 5% to the earlier projected 8% rate. This undoubtedly will help increased multi sector employment and improve living standards for a good portion of the Indian population ".
    Speaking on Dr Hariawala’ acceptance of Invitation to address the strong intellectual gatherings, Satya Brahma, Chairman & Editor-In-Chief of Pharmaleaders ( ) “ While Indian Inc has welcomed President Obama’s 2nd term as a good news for india, there are many who are doubtful of Obamacare policy & the business implications in india considering Obama’s disastrous first tenure which remained in words & did not significantly change the indo-Us business environment. While President Obama is struggling hard to keep everybody happy specially the Healthcare Insurance Policy, Dr Mukesh Hariawala’s Keynote is expected to dispel the myths & misunderstandings & bring cheers to Indian inc with a wide array of reforms & policy formulations in coming days, said Satya in a release.
    India is best positioned to take advantage with its extensive network of highly qualified well trained doctors supported by an infrastructure of world class corporate hospitals offering the same services as the US, at 20% of all inclusive costs for most procedures . This according to Florida based MTA ( Medical Tourism Association ) could bring in billions of dollars of revenue giving birth to a highly competitive parallel healthcare industry. " Obamacare " will also necessitate revamping of all the computing systems handling healthcare which would open a wide door of business opportunity for Indian IT companies. Purely for financial reasons, this will in all likelihood compel the US government to continue large outsourcing contracts. The key economic driver of Obamacare vision is to reduce the trillion dollar healthcare burden on the exchequer. One method likely to be employed is government supported encouragement in larger usage of generic medicines for the US population. This major paradigm shift could benefit the competitively priced Indian generic drug manufacturers who could dominate the supply chain, said Dr Hariawala.
    Dr Mukesh Hariawala is a Harvard trained Indian American Cardiac Surgeon with a unique qualification of an Healthcare Economist. In 2009, he was one of the 1st heart surgeons in the world to graduate with an accredited MBA from a premier US University. This has been followed by his appointment as " Adjunct Visiting Professor " at several global business schools with his teaching specialization on " Dynamic Changes in International Healthcare Marketplace ".Additionally, he has consistently demonstrated visionary concepts of improving Indian Healthcare encouraging induction of " Womb to Tomb " Insurance models, Acceleration of generic drug exports, Fast track protocols for the $100 Billion Medical Tourism business opportunity and Institution of creative levers to strengthen Indo - US collaborations during and beyond President Barack Obama's second term in office.Dr Hariawala has won several scientific accolades worldwide for his seminal work on Angiogenesis & Stem Cells. He now has the rare distinction amongst NRI doctors to hold appointment as “Visiting Honorary Cardiac Surgeon & Director of International Programs " at Mumbai's prestigious Jaslok Hospital.

    Introductory Brief on Indian Dermatology & Cosmetic Market Space

    Indian Challenges with Global Adaptation

    With the growing awareness in skin care among people, there is an increasing demand for quality products. Let us take a peek into the cosmeceutical trends expected in the future and the latest innovations in this sector. From the most neglected to the most eyed, Regulatory challenges dermatology & cosmetology is now in focus. Whether it is the therapeutic products or But as marketers strive to present these cosmetics, the new age cosmeceuticals or differentiated offerings for every customer aesthetic treatments, all these categories are need,the regulator is not far behind to demand growing much beyond market growth rates. proof for every functional claim. Substantiating these claims, even for cosmeceutical products,As today's emerging market, India attracts the is thus the need of the hour. Advanced attention of all leading world players in this instrumental techniques to measure various segment. parameters, along with clinical assessment, can now be used to meet this requirement.The Indian dermatology market is growing at Moreover, as India desires to export these more than 20% and represents 25% of the Asia products,international regulations too demand Pacific dermatology market. The cosmetics stringent supporting is estimated to be worth Rs. 20,000 crore by 2014. This seminar thus focuses on all these aspects through an innovative approach that:A vibrant economy,over 50% people under the age of 30, a growing middle class that can spend ¡Will provide...‘in-depth’ and relevant increasingly more,the influence of the glamour sessions from global and local technical industry that makes each one wanting to 'look experts good', are just few of the factors that drive

    A hybrid between pharmaceuticals and cosmetics, cosmeceutical are products with biologically active ingredients having drug-like benefits. With changing lifestyle of the people, both men and women are caring about their skin more than ever before. Although women from generations have dedicated time for taking care of their skin, today major women are changing occupation from being just a home maker to being a full-time professional and hence does not have enough time to dedicate to conventional beauty treatments. Thus, the need for fast-acting skin care products aroused. The boom in cosmeceutical coincides with people’s ever increasing interest in natural and safe products. Himani Chandna, Group Product Manager, L’Oréal – Active Cosmetics Division, says, “Cosmeceuticals is a hardcore category of products promising efficacy and are purposive in nature. The inclination of people to use cosmeceuticals comes from the kind of efficacy these products offer.”

    The skin care segment will account for 63 per cent of all cosmeceutical product demand through 2012 is expected to grow to $ 22.1 billion in worldwide sales by 2013.

    Indian demands

    The demand for products for a fair and beautiful skin no more restricts to the females. Even the males today in India are preferring beauty products to take that extra bit of care of themselves. Dr Soma Sarkar, Cosmetologist &Dermatologist & Influencer, Project Effexx – Merck India Initiative, says, “The cosmeceutical market in India is growing by leaps and bounds. The number of patients we attend on a daily basis is testimony to the fact that the demand for pharmaceutical products coupled with cosmetic properties is on the rise.”

    The global market was initially focussed on the treatment of acne using retinoid and skin lightening agents such as hydroquinone but with there has been a shift to anti-ageing in the last decade and especially to the ones having natural anti-ageing actives. Chandna further adds, “It will not be a fair to compare the potency of synthetic cosmetics and natural sources. Both undergo years of research in their own way. But in the Indian context, we often see people inclined towards the conventional products from natural sources.”

    Dr Sarkar further adds, “Depending on the patient’s requirements, we recommend them products that are often available over the counter to cosmetically treat various skin ailments. These products contain actives with fitting properties that soothe the skin and offer care at the same time. With the increasing demand for these products, the number of pharmaceutical companies producing them has also increased.”

    Increasing awareness is the major reason that has caught the attention of Indians to these products. Chandna suggests that it is the involvement of medical practitioners that has made the people aware about such products.

    Growth drivers

    An ageing skin is something that everyone today is fearful about. Everyone wants to look young and beautiful forever. Anti-ageing products are said to drive the market in future. Sarkar explains, “The average age of Indians opting for skin care solutions has changed. Increasingly, people are realising that skin’s ageing process starts at the age of 22 years and it is important to pay attention to it while in its early stages. Anti-ageing is thus one of key drivers in our industry. Apart from this, a lot of patients also come to us for hair care and fine fairness consultation.”

    Chandna believes it is the claim of the company and the delivery of the claim in the product that matters the most to the consumer backed with the safety and efficacy of the product.

    The consumer is dependent on the medical practitioners and other influencers for the guidance to use the correct product. But at the end it is the consumer’s experience that gets them hooked to the product. Hence, the major reason that a particular product will sustain is the loyalty it shows in delivering the company’s claim.

    Science behind

    With the growing awareness the people are opting for products derived from natural resources since they are safer to use as compared to the synthetic ones. Scientists and researchers have discovered the role of dietary components, phytoactives and food ingredients in supporting beauty from within in the form of nuticosmetics and cosmeceuticals for topical applications.

    Dr Sarkar suggests, “Addressing your skin care needs by opting for products and services that are derived from natural sources is always a safer option compared to chemically enhanced ones. They are completely bio-degradable and mimic the same chemical components as a regular product.”

    Natural antioxidants that quench free radicals are the essential component of the anti ageing formulations. Natural peptides are innovative cosmetic ingredients that can be potentially used to counteract wrinkles formation and loss of elasticity. Dr Sarkar elaborates, “The latest innovations are called ‘nanoceuticals’ that mimic the body’s normal skin protection function. These are essentially nutrients that have been reduced to a nanoscale through a process called nanotechnology. In addition to this, there are specific molecules that have come up for specific ailments.”

    Nanoceuticals that were launched around the year 2009 entered every domain the nutrients sector like nutritional supplements, slimming shakes and skin care. There are years of research that goes into the making of these products since there is immense data that needs to be generated before making a claim on the safety or effects of these products. The biggest challenge faced here is the uniqueness of every user and developing the product suiting the needs of maximum skin types as possible.

    Forecast for the Indian market

    The Indian market has more to expand in terms of cosmeceuticals. The feeling of being beautiful has a psychological impact on the minds of the people that boost a sense confidence among them. The changing definition of being beautiful and external appearance making a big impression are also factors affecting the market. In the Indian culture, for ages there have been conventional innovations to have a healthy beautiful skin. With the rise of cosmeceuticals these conventional methods have been replaced by new fast fix methods. Dr Sarkar adds, “Indians today are conscious about the way they look. With the average disposable income of Indians increasing, they do not restrict themselves from spending on their skin care needs. More often than not, beauty and beautiful skin is a confidence booster for people. It is because of these reasons that more and more people from metros and mini metros in India opt for such solutions. In the years to come, this industry will see a further surge in demand.”Chandna adds, “The industry is growing exponentially and the evolution of the industry will be rapid and the growth is expected between 40-50 per cent.”

    With the innovations and new product launches and increasing demand among the people this sector is bound to face a tremendous growth. But to sum it all up its product’s quality that will speak for it and define the success. India is still to explore a lot and a huge market is available for cosmeceutical in the developing countries and the developed ones too.
