Information Technology is no longer a recent development; it has permeated every facet of human existence, including industrial domains. With the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT), the process of digitization has extended its reach, encompassing both industrial operations and personal lifestyles. The evolution of the Indian IT industry is nothing short of remarkable, characterized by a narrative of distinction and extraordinary achievement.
The very first steps in the industry happened in the late sixties and early seventies in Mumbai. Major developments in the sector occurred at the end of the century or millennium as the effects of globalization and liberalization in the country.
The Indian IT industry has provided a ladder for the country to improve its projected image on the global level. In contemporary times, the Indian IT sector is the largest exporter of IT products and services in the world.
Exports constitute around 80 percent of the total revenue. With recent developments in the field of Artificial Intelligence and digital technology, the domestic market is showing promising signs of robust revenue growth.
A close look at the economy reveals that Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) represent 99% of all businesses, and technology has become an inevitable part of today's dynamic business landscape that no one can escape from.
Choosing an apt software is a crucial component of running a small business. The duo of Chandrashekara Rampura Siddegowda and Suguna Chandrashekara observed the problems faced by SMEs. They got motivated by the opportunities to incorporate Vispara Technosoft in early 2012 as a partnership firm and became a Private Limited company in 2017.
Initially, they started with their flagship cloud-based ERP software product 'WebaPSys'. It provides a unique business software solution to digitalize the business process and keep the organization operating, communicating, and expanding.

Being an entrepreneur is a tough job experiencing ups and downs, both daily and over time. My daily routine is not very defined. It starts with morning exercise and a cup of coffee. After reaching the office, I complete my tasks and leave the office by 7 pm.
My day ends at 11 pm. I am an adventurous person, for me, it is simply getting out of my comfort zone. I want to visit Manasarovar, Italy-Rome, Venice, the Great Pyramid of Giza, and Egypt at some point in life.
"Being patient in exasperating situations and understanding that building an enterprise can be a long process. Whether profit or non-profit, you need a strong business model.
You have to understand your market, your competitors, and your product. It is also important to work on the areas of the operation that you are best suited to and enjoy the most. If you love your role, you will find that you will be less tempted to procrastinate."
