According to the group, the editorial mission of Smart Inc is to facilitate managerial decision-making in the technology with a practical, 'how-to' approach and to achieve this mission, it would strive to provide concise, unbiased, focused and relevant IT advisory, that managers can easily link to their business goals.

Says Ashish Bagga, Publisher , Business Group, The India Today Group, "We have been planning for this magazine for about a year now. However, we waited for the right opportunity, which we feel is now, as we see a clear sign of recovery in the economy."

The magazine boasts Hari Menon as its Executive Editor, and a team of editorial consultants comprising Sanjoy Narayan, Editor- Business Today, R.Sukumar, Deputy Editor-Business Today and Samar Harlankar, Special Senior Editor.

With the backing of the Living Media Group and its numerous successful media brands, and being spearheaded by the Business Group, the industry awaits the launch of Smart Inc with high hopes.
