Hyderabad in the south of India has been one of the TOP10 IT outsourcing destinations in the world for years. Since the early days of the IT industry in India, the city has been one of the most dynamic IT hubs in India; however, this development was slowed down by political tensions in the Indian state of "Andra Pradesh", as a political movement demanded secession.

Since the resolution of this political conflict, the city of Hyderabad is experiencing a new development dynamic as an important IT location.
