‘In times of rapid technology refresh, reskilling becomes the biggest challenge’ 

Commitment as a Tech Head 
The board constantly relies on the CIO for new technology roadmaps that align with the vision of the company. The CIO has to leverage new technologies and business models which will contribute to the revenue generation and also enhance the business strategy for better optimization of work floor production.


Experience Cell
Market research claims that technology refresh happens every 18 months. Reskilling is the biggest challenge in identifying and training the right resource. We cannot be hiring and firing except for some key tech stack.

We have done a complete skill matrix on each tech employee and SWOT analysis to identify the strong and weak points. Based on the vision of the company, we align the right training to the tech team so they have knowledge in emerging technologies. Also they are encouraged to participate in various seminars and conferences organized by OEMs which keeps them abreast of latest technologies. We are also empowering them with attending a course of their choice which is in line with the company requirements and reimbursing the course fees, thereby enabling retention also.


Key Priorities
Migration of internal applications to cloud platform, revamping of internal app development team to an agile methodology, migration of legacy applications to latest tech stacks are some of the key priorities for us.


Adaptability to Organizational Changes
Some basic criteria in deploying the IT landscape are choosing products and tools which are easily scalable, selecting vendors with local presence for support and looking out for proven installations. If it is open source, then the complete stack should be built on open source.


Investment Plans for FY 18-19
With newer technology stacks and inventions in the IT industry, it is imperative that we align these tools to increase business growth. The budget needs to be flexible in adopting new technologies. We have a fair idea on what needs to implemented and deployed for the financial year. Yes it is true that almost 50-60% of the budget is allocated for new deployments and technology refreshes.
