Programming

Teams require engineers with the right aptitude and attitude to learn and deal with the ever-changing technology landscape. Too often, junior engineers get caught up in working with specific technologies and prove unwilling to learn new ones. Over the past few years, engineers have moved on to learn packages (say ERP or CRM) or visual GUI tools where little programming is needed. But things are changing fast.

In the IoT and digital world, programming has become cool again. Organizations and colleges, in particular, must encourage employees and students to participate in hackathons and other programming contests. Teams will ultimately be better served by those who can learn new constructs rather than just be super specialists.

Delivery of IT projects nowadays seems to require both long hours and the kind of will power only true heroes possess. This is especially true of projects that exist in the digital space. Thus, questions arise – what has changed, and what is needed to get things back on track so we don't need to rely on heroes to effectively deliver IT projects to the world?

In thinking about the IT services industry as a whole, Virtusa would like to offer five observations and recommendations designed to properly answer these questions.
