WELCOME INDIAN SOFTWARE FIRMS TO A BIGGER AUDIENCE (int'l edition)
While Indian software companies would have much to gain from a New York Stock Exchange listing, so would the U.S. investment community. This was overlooked in ''Look who's looking to Wall Street'' (Asian Business, Sept. 7). All the Indian listings have ISO-9000 quality ratings. Some (Infosys, DSQ, and Wipro) also have certification from the U.S. Software Engineering Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, considered the world's most stringent software quality standard. The move toward Indian listings in New York is thus also driven by a U.S. demand for quality.
