I would now like to introduce Mr. Raju Vegesna, Chairman and Managing Director of Sify. Raju?
Hi. Thank you, Chris. Good morning. Thank you for joining us on this call. As an organization since we have continuously aligned itself to new demand of our -- of an evolving markets.
On one side we are seeing a demand for a company IT solutions then on the other side demand continues to increase our robust network connectivity and data center capacity to deliver this products.
It is beginning to reap rewards as we see strong growth around our network and increasing levels of engagement of our managed services. It is also partly because of the industry moving towards the consolidation of services from various service providers.
And as a service provider, who get us to the entire ecosystem of product and services, we are finding ourselves increasingly called on -- call up on to deliver the solutions. This is helping us to win some of the major governments and private sector projects.
And we are also found a new market of, started growing in India that is SMB market and this, providing the kind of solutions what we created for enterprise, we are also providing existing solutions to SMB market and that has also started giving us a revenue. And our continued commitment of the government and state -- both state and union level also started seeing some fruitful.
So now -- I would now request our CEO, Kamal Nath to explain the operational highlights of the quarter. Kamal?
Yeah. Thank you, Raju, and good morning, everyone. As part of our plan laid out during the last quarter, we have restructured our go-to-market strategy around our Sify 3.0 objective.
We had already sensed a shift in the market space from a traditional procurement of IT infrastructure model to subscription of IT infrastructure model and I’m happy to share that the combined strength of our offering like Cloud Infinit along with our Private Cloud solutions on a services model has received significant response from enterprises, who are increasingly looking at IT infrastructure solutions, which would offer them flexible, valuable and cost effective model with faster deployment options.
Our Disaster Recovery on cloud services model is being seriously evaluated by enterprises who are shying away from setting our Disaster Recovery infrastructure in the past because of both cost and complexity.
This particular trend and our readiness have put Sify as a premium contended and alternative against the traditional players whose model is kept Sify with little or no variability in that.
The above is automatically resulting into customer getting integrated solutions on Sify combining all towers of IT infrastructure, over and above the core data center and network player which Raju had mentioned. This is precisely what we envisage while laying down our Sify 3.0 objectives.
