Indus Towers was incorporated with an objective to provide shared telecom infrastructure to telecom operators across the world on a non-discriminatory basis. This required the company to build a secure and reliable infrastructure, which would provide security and policy compliance in addition to enhanced efficiency. To address the challenge, Indus Towers partnered with Dell to implement a unified communications solution using Microsoft Exchange Server 2007; while Mindtree implemented a portal solution using Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. Applications are now available to employees through the portal. The result is better knowledge management, faster and fuller collaboration, improved communication, and increased efficiency. As a bonus, employee productivity has increased by 20 percent and the company estimates that the solution will give 110 percent return on investment.
