Abstract

Entrepreneurship in non-service sectors of IT is critical to India, if it wants to be a player in the ICT world. However, the Indian IT sector is predominantly service based and only recently some efforts have been taken up by some lead players to move to non-service sectors. However, with the ubiquity of smart phones, non-IT sectors are becoming critically important in this ICT world. Thus App development and attractive social site design and development have become important for both security and safety of India, as data and information collection about individuals and organizations – sometimes intrusively – are fast becoming rampant worldwide. This paper presents some of the causes for this state of affairs in India and provides a survey-based analysis of the situation. Besides presenting the test-hypotheses and validating them, this paper makes several recommendations that both Governmental and non-Governmental sectors can take up in order to foster entrepreneurship culture among SMEs in no-service IT sectors.
