In India, enterprises are rapidly adopting emerging digital technologies like cloud computing, automation, artificial intelligence (AI), and Internet of Things (IoT) to transform their business. A recent report by the International Data Corporation (IDC) reveals that more than 95 percent of Indian companies plan to maintain or increase their spending on digital transformation in 2023, and the total spend is projected to reach $85 billion by 2026. With Orion’s acquisition of Sryas, its presence in India, particularly in the data and analytics space and telecom sector, is expected to further strengthen.
Sryas adds more than 550 associates to Orion, including engineers in India, Canada, Mexico, and the Philippines, resulting in a combined team of approximately 7,000 associates and 12 major global delivery centers. As part of the transaction, Mr. Vish Ramesh, President & CEO, Sryas Inc, will join Orion’s management team.

complementary solutions, and proven track record of growth with one of Canada’s top communications companies is a perfect fit for Orion’s leading telecom practice. Adding Sryas will enable us to deliver even greater value to our combined clients with a comprehensive set of transformative solutions.
