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. Each of these vertical business units operate as a profit
center with increased overall productivity and accountability.

responsibility of maintaining India's IT installations at the beginning
