Work and Role: Then and Now
In the current profile I am more focused on providing consulting to Clients and Partners for Business and Technology Solutions. This consulting serves the base for our Clients/Partners for decision making in their Business and Projects. Along with Management Team and other senior stake holders I have to decide on what will be the key focus area of the Company moving ahead based on market trends both in terms of Business and Technology.
Previous role was more focused on growing a department with various tasks like expansion, budgeting, talent acquisitions, etc. It also had the responsibility of Project Management and Client relations specific to the Departments focus. i.e Android & Java.
In previous job my role was focused on Product Architecture and Framework developments.
Two Years Down the Line
Couple of years from now I see myself as one of the most sorted after Enterprise Mobility Expert.
What I Learnt Along the Way
Keep moving ahead of all the odds. Stay focused. Give your 100% to anything that you do. Keep writing your ideas or solutions. Analyze things and make pointers which might help you for decision making in future.
Changing Days: Lessons Learnt
It has been a great shift then previous days. Technology has been changing in multifold. The life cycle of technologies, products and solutions have become shorter. Current environment requires a person to be very dynamic and constantly learning (I like that).
Trends to Watch Out For
Android will be the key focus for Enterprises & Business houses along with other players. Enterprise Mobility will be the space where the movement will be. This will make both Cloud and Mobile Platform specifically android as the most viable combination.
Enterprise Focus in the longer run will come to Power Grid management [Green Computing] and applications/solutions surrounding it.
Next big thing will be shifting computing itself from Electronics to Chemicals. [15-30 years horizon]

Must Focus Areas For the Future

Do We Need Certifications?
Certifications do help to uplift and make your profile visible. It might bring you more Interview calls. But it is only the practical concepts and the knowledge about the technology and the grasping attitude that actually helps.
