The Indian government should concentrate on framing policies that will make the market truly competitive,” says Gary Roberts, Executive Vice President, EMEA, Pitney Bowes  Software

Why India?
The Indian market has reached a stage where competition poses a better way, as compared to regulation, for fostering growth in the economy. The Indian government should concentrate on framing policies that will make the market truly competitive. The regulations should be focused on defining the general rules for maintaining order in the market economy and ensuring a healthy respect for the social factors and for the environment. The Indian market represents a huge opportunity for global companies like Pitney Bowes.

Of particular interest is the GIS capability to integrate communications across departments and mining sites. GIS technology must constantly evolve to meet the changing needs of the mining industry. Our GIS solutions are also effective in thwarting the spread of Malaria. The distribution of Mosquitoes is largely dependent upon the spatial distribution of their larval breeding sites, their flight range and the spatial distribution of their preferred hosts. These are all heterogeneous in space and time. GIS may be used to map and analyses the spatial distribution of mosquitoes and to assess the ecological factors that contribute to observed distributions.
