It is good news for India as the world technology gaint HP has express its feeling to accelerate Digital India initiative. The company is looking to “strengthen” three key digital pillars namely
1. creation of digital infrastructure,
2. facilitating digital literacy and
3. delivering services digitally in the country.
“We are already promoting digital literacy via setting up knowledge learning centres. HP India is well integrated on the front of delivering digital services to the people. Having worked with the government on various projects for several years, we are focused and committed to accelerating the ‘Digital India’ initiative,” Rajiv Srivastava, managing director, HP India, reports IANS.
Currently, HP Inc has a manufacturing facility for making personal computers in Pantnagar, Uttarakhand.
“We will continue to manufacture in India and support local manufacturers with our vast expertise. Our plant at Pantnagar is currently sufficient to meet the demand but, yes, we may expand in other locations in the future,” Srivastava told IANS, adding that HP was one of the first companies to set up a manufacturing plant in India to make PCs “in India, for India”.
“The best thing about the new portfolio is that we are providing enterprise class security and functionality to small and medium businesses (SMBs) at a much cheaper cost. This move bridges the divide for SMBs customers when it comes to better security and faster experience,” said Srivastava
