This is a case of CIOs' worst nightmare coming true, said Nilesh Sangoi, CTO of Meru Cab Company. "Business' dependence on tech is massive,' he said in answer to a question directed at him by CIO&Leader on Twitter. Kamal Karnatak, Group CIO, RJ Corp was more scathing. "Shows unpreparedness in terms of DR/BCP," he said.
