This generational shift will force a fundamental change in the usage of IT. Old world IT organizations and service providers will be like people holding on to melting ice under the hot sun. Our goal is to co create the new world with our customers. Mphasis Next Labs is an investment in the space of co creation and enablement of the Generational Shift. Our mantra for success is customer centricity and customer relevance. As we speak, some collaborative work that we are doing will challenge the status quo in the IT Services space.
