The Industry Perspective
Today, software plays an important role in bringing ease of use, efficiency, accuracy, productivity in almost all domains of human activities - banking, telecommunications, government applications, education, defence, satellite control systems, social networking, etc. India is rapidly emerging as one of the most promising economy in terms of growth in the service sector especially in Software, IT and IT comprising BPO/KPO and other allied sectors. India is the front runner state in the world's IT industry. India with a huge base of quality manpower who are well educated, fluent in English, highly talented in engineering, accounting, software and other skills dominates the current world scenario. Most of the top IT companies along with other sectoral biggies have setup bases in India and those who have not, are in the process of doing so.
It seems as if world is coming to India or one can say India becoming the world itself.
The Information Technology Industry in India is growing at a tremendous pace. The young and talented Information Technology professionals are making India's presence strongly felt in the global Information Technology scenario.
Small towns to generate 3.8 million IT jobs by 2020 (Indo-Asian News Service) The National Association of Software and Service Companies (NASSCOM) predicted that the IT sector will directly employ around 10 million people by 2020 with 3.8 million incremental jobs to be created in smaller cities. There will be huge demand for skilled IT professionals and finding a skilled, trained IT professional will be difficult task for companies.
Mr. Som Mittal, President, NASSCOM said, "The IT and Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) sectors are expected to employ around 2.5 million by the end of next fiscal, up from the current 2.3 million. Looking forward, the sector is expected to employ 10 million people by 2020."
According to him, 4.1 million incremental direct jobs are expected to be generated in tier I (bigger) cities, while 3.8 million such jobs will be in tier 2/3 locations. "While the past decade saw the workforce largely from India, the next decade will see Indian companies migrating to domain specific services from the current delivery centric activities” Mittal added.
As businesses propose to double and triple their workforces and Indian companies strive to maintain their position in the global marketplace, it has become imperative to prepare and plan for a world-class, competent, talented and innovative workforce.
Clearly, the requirement now is to raise the knowledge, quality and standards of the engineering graduates and make them competent and readily employable in the global marketplace. And there is no other better place to breed these next generation software engineers than the colleges.
