Could you tell us briefly about your family background?
My parents were teachers (both retired now) in high school. My elder brother is a professor in an Engineering college and younger brother works in a MNC in USA.
Changes in the industry
This industry is rapidly gaining importance as users realize the fallibility of developer testing and its drawbacks. However there is still a lack of taking the whole process of testing to a serious level for end to end testing. Some organizations have a dedicated practice setup for the purpose.
Role Model
I worked with a project manager, Kanika way back in 1998 while in iflex Solutions. She was a role model as she treated the projects under her as her own children. Senior management jokingly used to call her 'mother', such was the dedication and love she showed to her work. She still inspires me.
Degrees that Matter
I learn most of my testing techniques hands-on and evolve them as required. I contribute to the process model of my organization through process improvements and make sure my knowledge is shared and reviewed. I did not feel the need to achieve certifications but I am sure I will benefit from it.
The Journey So Far
I started out as a simple developer in iflex solutions, progressed my way through as senior software engineer at HP, took a big leap as R&D Software Manager at SAS India, worked as Project Manager at SAS Australia and switched back to Technical Consulting at SMS M&T while in Sydney, Australia.
Currently working at
I am still a technical consultant and specialize in Datawarehousing and BI. I am PMP certified so fairly conversant of the management processes. My specialization include Data Modeling especially in the Banking Industry.
Plans for the Future
I wish to do independent consulting on contractual basis. Half the time I am not working, I would like to train myself and be at the cutting edge of technology.
Most Important Lessons
Most important lesson is that whatever we try to achieve has to be done by the sheer love. Make your through life by taking care of others' sensitivities and remember that the past always catches up with you in the future. Relationships matter the most.
Most Important Decisions
The most important career decision was to switch from a Managerial role to a Technical role. When I went technical, I realized that this was the way I achieved satisfaction in my work and life had a whole new meaning.
Parting thoughts
Live by the mantra of PPLH (Peace, Prosperity, Love and Happiness) and everything is simpler to achieve in life.
A Fine Balance:
By making clear my priorities before I even begin work. Once you are caught in the act, its very difficult to change and convince others.
