The telecom industry, world over, has seen in the recent time a paradigm shift in areas of operations, customer relationship management and the role of IT. These changes, in addition to the telecom knowledge, demand T-shaped skills from the students wanting to join the telecom industry. This has necessitated the need for the B-school like SITM offering management education in a niche domain of telecom to blend the core telecom courses with courses like Business Intelligence (BI), Cloud computing & Social networking. Through this collaboration and the setting up of the IBM's Centre of Business Analytics at SITM students & faculty members will get access to a suite of software packages like IBM Cognos , DB2, Lotus Connect, Tivoli,& Web Sphere. This software suite will provide SITM students hands-on exposure on Descriptive Analytics, Predictive Analytics, E-Marketing, Social Networking, Services Sciences Management and Engineering, IT Services Management and Cloud Computing.

SITM and IBM will be working closely to develop faculty expertise in this area and aim to develop managerial talent required by the industry that appreciates and understands real-life business issues and can utilize technology for business and social benefit.

The primary objective of SITM is not only to get students and faculty members familiar with various software tools provided by IBM but also get them exposed to using these tools for understanding number of concepts involved in business transformation, industry best practices, and enterprise software.
