Technology has transformed leaps & bounds, so has the business of technologies.

India has been able to establish itself as a major player in the information technology-enabled services (ITES). In 1999–2000, India’s exports of software services were just less than US$ 3 billion, which had expanded to nearly US$ 100 billion by 2016–2017. WTO informs that in 2015, India’s exports of computer services were nearly 16% o global exports.

Dataquest was launched in December 1982 as the first IT magazine in India. Since then, DQ has actively been advocating the role of technologies across the sectors. Dataquest,the leading and oldest technology magazines in India, will be celebrating its40 years journey over the next one year starting January’23 till December’ 23.
