Technology services companies are in the habit of modification. Experts in the industry worth $160 Billion using around 4 Million engineers affectionately recall how they got trapped every time the technology modified. This includes from client–server to web, trade software, cloud, Internet, and more.
With every new generation (in technology, that can be as small as 3 Years) they re-skilled millions, factually updating CVs as engineers industriously studied new code. In more late years, the technology changes have turned out to be tectonic. Growth is down to sole digits from the high teens, even as firms in industry from automobiles to banks use more tech and look such as technology companies themselves. User needs the upcoming digital tools that will assist them remain ahead in the race and magnetize millennials to purchase their services and products.
Nowadays, tech outsourcers are anticipated to be up to pace with an alphabet soup of reductions such as AR, ML, AI, VR, and IoT. That’s augmented reality, machine learning, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, and Internet of Things. Apart from this, users today are not just chief data officers but comprise vertical heads such as product head honchos in user goods firms, retail banking chiefs, CFOs, CMOs, and CSOs.
Often customary big outsourcers such as Citibank and General Electric doubt the deepness amid 3rd-party tech services operators to cater digital solutions and are maintaining main digital tasks inhouse. No wonder tech firms are once more making a hard attempt to upgrade. “It is an ideal storm,” claims CSO of Tech Mahindra, Jagdish Mitra, to the media in an interview. Now, Tech Mahindra is a $4.3 Billion worth services firm. “Skills are changing, technology is changing, geopolitics is changing, and buyer behavior is changing,” adds Mitra, highlighting out the curves of the storm. The lager change is of course tech itself, with users asking less of customary coding work and more of digital.
Having tolerated the force of the storm over the past couple of years, firms are back to the studying decks. “TCS seems like a school,” claims President and Head of business & technology practice at TCS, Krishnan Ramanujan, to the media.
Ramanujan, who has been working with TCS for almost 26 Years, has re-skilled himself many times. This includes from client–server to COBOL to cloud to ERP. He did this before shifting into more steady managerial roles. But the re-skilling that he is seeing now is not similar to the one he has seen before.
