2010-11: Looking Back, Looking Forward – Part 2

I can look back at 2010 along three dimensions – NetCore, Politics and Personal. Let me start with NetCore.

2010 was a year to build upon the positive momentum that we had in NetCore in our enterprise mailing and mobility businesses. These are out cash-generating businesses, and we needed to ensure that we sustained the growth in volumes of emails and SMSes to ensure that we benefited from increasing scale. This has worked out very much along the lines we expected.

In enterprise mailing, we have four primary solutions we offer companies: Linux-based mail servers (on the LAN or in the cloud), anti-virus and anti-spam for emails in the cloud, email archiving and high-volume mass mailing. The last two were launched in the previous year. Mailing has been the primary business we have been doing for many years, and we now have a customer base of over 2,000 enterprises in India.

In enterprise mobility, we have three primary offerings: a platform and pipe for transactional SMSes (alerts sent to banks, airlines and others to their customers), SMS-based promotional marketing for branding or new customer acquisition, and end-to-end solutions where SMS integrates into business processes.

There is now good scale across both of these segments to ensure that 2011 is even better for us.

Continued tomorrow.
