Growth prospects

OpenSource For You - - CAREER FOR U & ME -

For some­one look­ing to make a ca­reer in apps de­vel­op­ment, par­tic­u­larly in the mo­bile apps seg­ment, the sky is the limit. If you go by the statis­tics, the num­ber of mo­bile con­nec­tions is more than Tss, land­line phones and PCs in In­dia. So whether it is en­ter­tain­ment, shop­ping, in-car nav­i­ga­tion or bank­ing, there is an app for it and there is scope for apps in ev­ery sphere of life. So, it won't be an ex­ag­ger­a­tion to say that apps will drive the growth of the mo­bile de­vices and PC in­dus­try hence­forth.

It is worth men­tion­ing here that In­dian mo­bile op­er­a­tors are earn­ing a ma­jor chunk of their rev­enue through salue Added Ser­vices (sAS). The de­mand for th­ese has led to the in­creased de­mand for mo­bile app de­vel­op­ers in a sig­nif­i­cant way. Singh em­pha­sises, “The in­dus­try is boom­ing and de­mand is high, but there is still a dearth of qual­ity tal­ent. By this I mean sound tech­ni­cal knowl­edge as well as creative ideas. Com­pa­nies like us re­sort to train­ing the de­vel­op­ers LQ WhH GRPDLQ WR PHHW WhH GHPDQG.” $SSVWXGLRz hDV plans to add 100 de­vel­op­ers this year, of which a ma­jor­ity would be fresh­ers. Singh clar­i­fies, “The col­lege cur­ricu­lum is still not up to the mark. Hence, the fresh­ers we hire are first trained by the ex­perts and then brought on to real projects. Of course, we def­i­nitely ORRN IRU VRXQG WHFhQLFDO NQRZOHGJH LQ IUHVhHUV.” ThLV means that fresh­ers with­out any ex­pe­ri­ence in the apps de­vel­op­ment in­dus­try can also have their share of the apps de­vel­op­ment pie but have to un­dergo train­ing.

Don't be­lieve it? Well, you can scan any job site and you will find nu­mer­ous jobs in the M-sAS (Mo­bile salue Added Ser­vices) in­dus­try. There­fore, rest as­sured that a ca­reer in this in­dus­try will prove to be a good move even­tu­ally.
