Infosys Ltd.

Brief description about me
I completed my MBA from Lal Bahadur Shastri Institute of Management, Delhi in 2008. After it, I joined Pvt. Ltd. as Business Analyst. I worked there for 2.5 years in Financial and Business Research domain.

After it, I joined Infosys Ltd. in October 2010 and currently working as SAP FICO consultant here. In total, I have close to 4.5 years of experience.

In both of my organizations, I got opportunity to lead a team of 8-10 people for few projects, which was a real value addition experience for me.

I am also pursuing CFA from CFA Institute, USA and currently CFA Level 3 candidate.

Challenges in job
The real challenge is to satisfy customers with our solution. Also, coping up with latest changes in SAP ERP arena is another challenge.

This is helping  me to understand the client business better and to learn the technicalities of work.

Job made easy
The best way to make the job easier is to start enjoying it. Unless we enjoy it, we won't be motivated to give our best to work and it will only make our job difficult.

Upcoming Trends
a. Reaping the benefit of emerging technologies (such as Cloud computing) at an early stage will be very crucial.

b. Finding/entering new geographies for client base

c. Margin focus, value-added services to clients

d. Organic/inorganic growth in the form of mergers and acquisitions

My point of view
Rather than trying to build our own base, we are trying to get the benefit of the weakness of other countries (e.g., low cost offering). We as a country can develop only when we also start investing in innovation/technology. We have so much talent here that it's not impossible if government/corporate world take it into consideration.

And this will define true development for our country as well.

My goal
I would like to see myself at middle-level management in next 5 years in a MNC and if all goes well, I would like to invest in a new venture as well.

family background
I belong to a business family located in a remote village in Bihar. My father is in textile retailer and my mom is a housewife.

I have a joint family and all my uncles are in family business. I have been the 1st one in my family to move out of it and entered into professional career.

Advice to professionals
Try to be as much interactive as possible with your colleague and don't hesitate to ask something you don't know at work.

And I would just like to say..keep enjoying the work.

Advice to students
Study based on solution-oriented approach. Only learning theoretical concepts are not going to help in Professional market. Interact with your seniors/alumni as much as possible. This is one thing which will definitely help in determining the career path.
