Bullish signal on weekly chart
Covid test result - Positive
There is no doubt that the COVID-19 pandemic, the resulting disruption of the world economy and the social upheavals of early 2020 have battered some industries. But the demand for digital technology has continued to be strong. And while there have been delays in some engagements and short term economic slowdowns, there appear to be tremendous opportunities for technology companies to grow in the medium and long term.
SaaS - the new oxygen
We also saw exceptional traction with our solutions in the SaaS-based CRM (Customer Relationship Management), HCM (Human Capital Management), and SCM (Supply Chain Management) spaces, with demand for the former two doubling last year. We expect this trend to continue this year.
Geo-political risk in new world order
All of these geopolitical parameters have a direct impact on HCL business as we operate in 40+ countries. Current political views create perception challenges for winning business for a foreign owned entity. Legislation which restricts the availability of work visas for skilled resources impacts our ability to deliver services which include project delays and increase cost.
