And that too in four continents around the GLOBE !

1976 was the year when CMC Limited commenced operations as 'Computer Maintenance Corporation'. CMC took up the challenge to service all installations left by IBM, when IBM decided to wind up its operations in India in 1978, and took over the maintenance of over 800 IBM installations spread across the country. Later it also maintained computers supplied by scores of other foreign manufacturers.

While maintenance activities progressed apace, encouraged and enthused CMC spread its wings and turned its attention to other areas of computer support. Computer centers were set up in different cities and whole ranges of consultancy services were offered. Computer education and training programmes were started. The R&D Centre at Hyderabad undertook pioneering projects in the areas of contemporary technology. Software development in data communications and database management became one of the Corporation’s fastest growing activities. And INDONET, India’s first commercial computer network began taking shape.

A significant milestone was project INTERACT, a major United Nation funded project aimed at fostering self-reliance through design, development and systems engineering of real-time, on-line and image processing systems, dedicated to development-oriented applications. A number of professionals from Nigeria, Peru, Philippines, Yugoslavia and other developing countries worked with CMC on the project.

In view of the diversified business activities besides maintenance, 'Computer Maintenance Corporation' became "CMC Limited" in 1984.

While hardware maintenance continues to play a major role, CMC’s activities have advanced in many new directions. CMC is one of the leading System Integrators in the country with multi-faceted expertise in Information Technology. CMC has extensive and continually updated expertise in real-time systems, on-line systems, embedded systems, process control, transaction processing, image processing, data communications, networking, parallel architectures, e-Commerce technologies and e-Governance applications etc. Integrated with this 'horizontal' expertise in Information Technology is CMC’s 'vertical' expertise in a whole range of industries - both infrastructural, like power, coal, mining, oil and transport; as well as service, such as banking, education, insurance, securities, water management, e-Governance and law & order.

It is this totality of expertise that has enabled CMC to develop a variety of superior IT products and to execute a number of complex and challenging projects, not only in India, but also in Europe, America, Africa, the Middle East and South-East Asia. As a part of the globalization activity, CMC acquired a wholly owned subsidiary Company in USA, Baton Rouge International Inc. (BRI) in 1991, thereby expanding its international activities.

In the light of the growth of the communications sector and its importance to the liberalized economy, CMC revamped its communication network - INDONET, in terms of new protocols, communication lines & equipment as well as host systems. Besides, the need for highly specialized software engineering skills has triggered increased thrust on Education & Training activities.

In order to focus on the above mentioned business areas, five Strategic Business Units (SBUs) were formed in 1995 namely, Customer Services, Systems Integration, International Operations, INDONET and Education & Training.
