One cannot spider the dynamically generated data, so to say.

Nitin Kapila

large and now medium organisations, move operations to Asia and South America through captive, dedicated operations and outsourced structures, clusters of regional competence are competing for a share of the global economy. Although some regions such as Bangalore and Gurgaon are already staking their claim as such clusters of competence, there lies enormous potential for Tier 2 regions like Chandigarh to develop domain expertise and a global brand in niches that fit with the regions competence.
