Oct 2012 - Dec 2015

Co-leading a team which conducts research on emerging technologies focusing on IT specifically. Areas of focus include SMAC and other industry specific technology research. A 360 degree view on all the technologies from the market perspective is one of the striking points of our research. An exponential demand for mobility based aspects within the confined walls of an organization have given birth to a lot of interesting developments in the industry. Social media frenzy, cloud accessibility, ocean of big data and telecommuting to achieve efficiency via mobility are some of the trends I can put forth after understanding nuances on these technologies. I am presently working on understanding the emerging SMART technologies. Concept of machines talking to each other has been intriguing for better part of my engineering days and it is not a surprise to see diving deep to understand the same. Times are changing and interesting things are expected in the near future.
