In India, urbanisation is a rapidly growing trend fuelled by the government’s emphasis on the manufacturing and services sectors as engines of growth and the transition thereof to these sectors from agriculture. As per the 2011 census report, more than 600 million Indians will be living in urban areas by 2031, and the contribution of urban India to her GDP is expected to rise from 52% in 2011 to 75% in 2031. Yet, the current state of infrastructure, human capital and services in Indian cities is an important constraint in accommodating the pace of urbanisation. A plan for rapid development of 100 smart cities by the Government of India intends to address this challenge. A smart city is commonly defined as one that leverages technology to integrate and optimise its limited resources towards better habitability, sustainability and citizen empowerment. But there is limited understanding of how technology-enabled solution(s) will help a city evolve into safe, secure, and efficient urban cities. After all, one solution would not fit all regions.

Over the last few years more than 800 MNCs have established Global In-house Centers (“GIC”) in India that leverage highly skilled, specialized, low-cost talent pool to reduce costs of ownership, develop products and provide services for fast growing global and regional markets. 
The service delivery journey for most GICs has been that of gradual evolution, taking years to progress from when dedicated centers were set up for one or two functions to multi-function center providing value added services for both global and local geographies.
The current business environment is far more global, complex, agile, and influenced by the digital revolution.  Organizations have had to restructure their service delivery models to align to the changing business environment.  As a result, GICs have had to rapidly evolve their operating models to move up the value chain.  GICs are now increasingly transitioning from being pure play cost centers to centers delivering innovation, quality and strategic value.
