  6. 6. Ynot Software Solutions Acharya Bangalore B-School Page 6 Chapter – 2 Industry Profile, Company Profile & Product Profile
  7. 7. Ynot Software Solutions Acharya Bangalore B-School Page 7 INDUSTRYPROFILE Information Technology Information Technology (IT) is the application of computers and telecommunications equipment to store, retrieve, transmit and manipulate data, often in the context of a business or other enterprise. IT is the use of any computers, storage, networking and other physical devices, infrastructure and processes to create, process, store, secure and exchange all forms of electronic data. The term information technology was coined by the Harvard Business Review, in order to make a distinction between purpose-built machines designed to perform a limited scope of functions and general-purpose computing machines that could be programmed for various tasks. As the IT industry evolved from the mid-20th century, it encompassed transistors and integrated circuits -- computing capability advanced while device cost and energy consumption fell lower, a cycle that continues today when new technologies emerge. Indian Industry One of the biggest factors that have helped India to make its mark on the world map is its booming IT industrial sector. The contributions being made by the IT industry towards the country's GDP has led to a steady growth of the Indian economy. India's IT industry is regarded as a hub of innovators providing world class technology solutions across the globe. Various international organizations have set up their offices here in India like Google, Accenture etc. It has helped in changing Indian economy from a agricultural based economy to a knowledge driven economy. IT sector has helped the domestic economy to integrate with the world economy. It has made significant impacts on the lives of many people. It has also helped people settled in far flung topographies to connect with the rest of the world. It has given birth to e-governance practices, as
  8. 8. Ynot Software Solutions Acharya Bangalore B-School Page 8 a result of which people get an easy access via e-health, e-education, e-ticketing etc. to the various governmental services. Today almost everything can be done online whether its shopping, ticketing, filing Income Tax returns etc. Though the year 2014 was full of challenges and uncertainties but the IT sector managed to achieve double digit growth rate and attained revenues of USD 108 billion in the fiscal year 2014-2015. Growth of IT Industry in India Information technology in India is an industry consisting of two major components: IT services and business process outsourcing (BPO). The sector has increased its contribution to India's GDP from 1.2% in 1998 to 7.5% in 2012. According to NASSCOM, the sector aggregated revenues of US$147 billion in 2015, where export revenue stood at US$99 billion and domestic at US$48 billion, growing by over 13%.India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi has started 'Digital India' project to give IT a secured position inside & outside India. The industry achieved a major breakthrough in the 1990s and is now one of the important industries of India. The main cause of the rapid development of software industry is its vast reservoir of technically skilled manpower which has transformed India into a software super power. With a compound annual growth of about 52 per cent between 1991 and 1996, the Indian software sector has expanded almost twice as fast as the world’s leading US software industry did, during the same periods, although from a smaller base. There is now a critical mass of more than 500 software firms in the country and apart from these companies there are an additional 1,000 start-up-companies. Today, India is one country that offers cost-effectiveness, great quality, high reliability, speedy deliveries and, above all, the use of state-of-the-art technologies in software industry. The year 1995-96 was a boom year for the Indian computer industry and the Information Technology (IT) industry of India really exploded in that year.
  9. 9. Ynot Software Solutions Acharya Bangalore B-School Page 9 Despite the challenges such as the continued technology slowdown in the global market, strong fundamentals and core value position of the software and services industry led to outperforming all other sectors in the country. Its export grew by 26.3 per cent in 2002-03, clocking revenues of Rs 46,100 crore. The Indian software and services industry is one of the very few sectors worldwide to have witnessed double digit growth. This has increased its share of total Indian exports from 4.9% in 1997 to 20.4 per cent in 2002-03. It is expected to generate total employment for four million people (including support services), account for 7% of India’s GDP and 30 % of India’s foreign exchange inflows in the year 2008. Software has become a major item of export in India. In the year 2004-05, the software and service exports from India registered a 34.5 per cent growth. The total software and services revenues grew by 32 per cent to $ 22 billion in 2004-05 and to $ 28.5 billion in 2005-06. Progress of IT Industry (figure in $ billion): Year 2003-04 2004- 05 2005-06* IT software and service exports 9.2 12 15.2 ITE-BPO exports 3.6 5.2 7.3 Domestic market 3.9 4.8 6 Total 16.7 22 28.5
  10. 10. Ynot Software Solutions Acharya Bangalore B-School Page 10 According to NASSCOM, the industry is expected to register a growth of 30 to 32 per cent in the near future. The domestic market, according to NASSCOM, grew by 24 per cent. Findings of the survey conducted by NASSCOM indicate that the total value of outsourcing to India ($ 17.2 billion in (2004- 05) is as much as 44 per cent of the worldwide total. There is good reason to believe that the present strong momentum will continue to drive the expansion of this industry. Indian companies have so far concentrated on only two largest IT service markets, viz., the U.S.A. and the U.K. Countries like Canada, Japan, Germany and France represent huge growth potential. Other countries like the Netherlands, Sweden and Australia also hold great possibilities. IT companies are aggressively exploring other markets in Europe, Latin America and Asia Pacific. Hardware The hardware segment of Information Technology (IT) industry is one of the fastest growing industries in terms of production, international trade and is characterised by innovation. According to a recent study, by 2010, the global electronics industry would cross $ 1 trillion mark and Indian electronic hardware industry may be well over $ 73 billion by then. The components segment has a potential to reach $ 11 billion by 2010. This will offer employment opportunities to over 5 million persons. After liberalisation in 1991, India is fast catching up with the world in terms of penetration of IT, telecommunications and consumer electronics products. This can lead to a huge demand for these products as well as provide base for global competition. “The Personal Computer (PC), not TV, will be the key information appliance of 21st century,” said Andy Grove, co-founder of Intel, the world’s largest chip-maker over a decade ago. He was proved right in the U.S. before the turn of the 20th century when for the first time PCs outsold TVs. This has not happened in India, and may not happen for another decade. But PCs are gaining more popularity in India as compared to TVs as the time passes.
  11. 11. Ynot Software Solutions Acharya Bangalore B-School Page 11 Sale of personal computers (PCs) increased by 20% in 2004-05 to 3.63 million units. Internet subscribers also went up by 23 per cent in 2004-05 to 2.92 million over the previous year. The rise in PC sales can be attributed to home segment which posted a growth of 48 per cent. Significant consumption by telecom, banking, manufacturing as well as business process outsourcing (BPO) and IT enabled services (ITES) segment also contributed to rise in PC sales. India has emerged as the most preferred destination for BPO, a key driver of growth of software industry and the service sector. Smaller cities and towns fuelled the IT consumption with class С cities accounting for over 50 per cent of total PC sales. Under the existing growth pattern, the domestic PC market is expected to touch 14.3 million units by 2010 with PC penetration of 45 per 1000 people. Output of Indian electronics and IT industry is estimated to have grown by 18.2 per cent to Rs. 1, 14,650 crore in 2003-04. Overview Bangalore is considered to be the Silicon Valley of India because it is the leading IT exporter. Exports dominate the industry and constitute about 77% of the total industry revenue. However, the domestic market is also significant with a robust revenue growth. The industry’s share of total Indian exports (merchandise plus services) increased from less than 4% in FY1998 to about 25% in FY2012. According to Gartner, the "Top Five Indian IT Services Providers" are Tata Consultancy Services, Infosys, Cognizant, Wipro, and HCL Technologies. Videsh Sanchar Nigam Limited (VSNL) introduced Gateway Electronic Mail Service in 1991, the 64 Kbit/s leased line service in 1992, and commercial Internet access on a visible scale in 1992. Election results were displayed via National Informatics Centre's NICNET. The Indian economy underwent economic reforms in 1991, leading to a new era of globalization and international economic integration. Economic growth of over 6% annually was seen during 1993-2002. The economic reforms were driven in part by significant the internet
  12. 12. Ynot Software Solutions Acharya Bangalore B-School Page 12 usage in the country. The new administration under Atal Bihari Vajpayee 1999 govt pm which placed the development of Information Technology among its top five priorities formed the Indian National Task Force on Information Technology and Software Development. "The New Telecommunications Policy, 1999" (NTP 1999) helped further liberalize India's telecommunications sector. The Information Technology Act 2000 created legal procedures for electronic transactions and e-commerce. Throughout the 1990s, another wave of Indian professionals entered the United States. The number of Indian Americans reached 1.7 million by 2000. This immigration consisted largely of highly educated technologically proficient workers. Within the United States, Indians fared well in science, engineering, and management. Graduates from the Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT) became known for their technical skills. The success of Information Technology in India not only had economic repercussions but also had far-reaching political consequences. India's reputation both as a source and a destination for skilled workforce helped it improve its relations with a number of world economies. The relationship between economy and technology valued in the western world facilitated the growth of an entrepreneurial class of immigrant Indians, which further helped aid in promoting technology-driven growth. Recent development The economic effect of the technologically inclined services sector in India accounting for 40% of the country's GDP and 30% of export earnings as of 2006, while employing only 25% of its workforce is summarized by Sharma (2006): "Today, Bangalore is known as the Silicon Valley of India and contributes 33% of Indian IT Exports. India's second and third largest software companies are headquartered in Bangalore, as are many of the global SEI-CMMI Level 5 Companies." Numerous IT companies are based in Mumbai such as TCS (among India's first and largest), Reliance, Patni, L&T InfoTech, Myzornis Corporation and I-Flex. Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum), the capital of Kerala state, is the foremost among the Tier II cities that is rapidly growing in terms of IT infrastructure. As the software hub of Kerala, more than 80% of the state's software exports are from here. Major campuses and headquarters of
  13. 13. Ynot Software Solutions Acharya Bangalore B-School Page 13 companies such as Infosys, Oracle Corporation, IBS Software Services and UST Global are located in the city. India's biggest IT company is building the country's largest IT training facility in Trivandrum the project is worth INR10 billion and will have a capacity of 10,000 seats. The completion of the facility is expected in 2014 or 2015. On 25 June 2002, India and the European Union agreed to bilateral cooperation in the field of science and technology. A joint EU-India group of scholars was formed on 23 November 2001 to further promote joint research and development. India holds observer status at CERN, while a joint India-EU Software Education and Development Centre will be located in Bangalore. 10 Major IT hubs in India Bangalore Popularly known as the capital of the Silicon Valley of India is currently leading in Information Technology Industries in India. Bangalore showed the slowest rate of annual growth at 4 percent driven by reduced demand in the BPO/ITES sector). Chennai It is the second largest exporter of software next to Bangalore. It has the largest operations for India’s top software company TCS, Infosys ( has world's largest development centre with 25,000 employers in Mahindra world city at Baranur near Chengalpattu, and many centres in IT corridor), and other software companies like Wipro, CTS, Patni, L&T InfoTech and many companies have major operations in IT corridor, Ambattur and other places in Chennai.

  16. 16. Ynot Software Solutions Acharya Bangalore B-School Page 16 L&T InfoTech With strong revenue of around USD 650 million, Mumbai based Larson and Turbo InfoTech is one of the leading IT companies and BPO solutions provider. Alliances with Microsoft, SAP, and Oracle etc make it a force to reckon with. Oracle Financial Services iFlex Oracle Financial Services, formerly known as iFlex Solutions, it a major IT player in the Indian market. With revenue of nearly USD 520 million, and a strong backing of Oracle, it is undoubted one of the strongest companies in the IT solutions for the banking sector. Employment generation This sector has also led to massive employment generation. The industry continues to be a net employment generator expected to add 230,000 jobs in FY2012, thus providing direct employment to about 2.8 million, and indirectly employing 8.9 million people. Generally dominant player in the global outsourcing sector. However, the sector continues to face challenges of competitiveness in the globalized and modern world, particularly from countries like China and Philippines. India's growing stature in the Information Age enabled it to form close ties with both the United States of America and the European Union. However, the recent global financial crisis has deeply impacted the Indian IT companies as well as global companies. As a result hiring has dropped sharply, and employees are looking at different sectors like the financial service, telecommunications, and manufacturing industries, which have been growing phenomenally over the last few years. India's IT Services industry was born in Mumbai in 1967 with the establishment of Tata Group in partnership with Burroughs. The first software export zone SEEPZ was set up here way back in 1973, the old avatar of the modern day IT Park. More than 80 percent of the country's software exports happened out of SEEPZ, Mumbai in 1980s.
  17. 17. Ynot Software Solutions Acharya Bangalore B-School Page 17 Future outlook The Indian IT market currently focuses on providing low cost solution in the services business of global IT. Presence of Indian companies in the product development business of global IT is very meagre, however, this number is slowly on the raise. US giants that outsource work to India, do not allocate the high end SDLC (Software Development Life Cycle) processes like requirement analysis, high level design and architectural design, although some Indian IT players have enough competency to take up and successfully complete these high level software jobs. The other prominent trend is, IT jobs, that were earlier confined to Bangalore, are slowly starting to experience a geographical diffuse into other cities like Chennai, Hyderabad and Pune. The growth is not fast paced, this, can be largely attributed to the lethargic attitude of the government in providing proper telecommunication infrastructure. The penetration levels are higher for mobile, but, the speed at which the backbone infrastructure works (network speed) and the coverage it offers are far below what other countries of the world have currently in offer. The Indian Advantage The above listed views might possibly work against India’s dream to become the biggest contributor to world IT business, but, if there is one factor that is particular only to India, and, the one that can nullify all negative factors lined up against it, would be, the volume of young, English speaking talent pool that India has got to offer. This number far exceeds, any other country can generate in the coming years. It cannot be denied that China is gearing up to reduce the English fluency gap, but, at the same time, doing it with ease like India, is a topic of discussion. From Services to the Product Orientation The migration of Indian IT companies to mainstream product development is not happening any time in the near future, this, primarily can be attributed to the fact that was discussed in earlier section, which is, lack of innovation culture amongst the top hierarchy of the firm, and, less availability of skilled management graduates in the country. However, what might possibly happen is, global multinationals that are currently outsourcing services and back office jobs to
  18. 18. Ynot Software Solutions Acharya Bangalore B-School Page 18 India, might outsource more of higher level jobs in SDLC (Software Development Life Cycle) like requirement analysis and architecture design. The other opportunity is, Indian subsidiaries of global multinationals might take up significant chunk of the product development than what they are currently doing, this, however, is not happening currently because, the global IT firms are still not comfortable in working out a way to extract high end work from Indian companies. Research and Development- The new drivers The research in the industry was earlier concentrated towards programming technologies like Java, in the recent times, the research focus changed towards technologies like mobile computing, cloud computing and software as a service. This shift is attributed to preference of clients towards the ubiquitous computing over standalone computing and the growing demand for low cost computing solutions. Structure of India’s IT Industry The IT industry has emerged as one of the most important industries in the Indian economy contributing significantly to the growth of the economy. The IT industry of India got a major boost from the liberalization of the Indian economy. India's software exports have grown at an annual average rate of more than 50% since 1991. The structure of the IT industry is quite different from other industries in the Indian economy. The IT industry of India is hugely dependant on skilled manpower. Primarily a knowledge based industry, the IT industry of India has reordered significant success due to the huge availability of skilled personnel in India. The industry structure in the IT sector has four major categories. These are -  IT services  IT enabled services  Software products  Hardware
  19. 19. Ynot Software Solutions Acharya Bangalore B-School Page 19 IT Services IT services constitute a major part of the IT industry of India. IT services include client, server and web based services. Opportunities in the IT services sector exist in the areas of consulting services, management services, internet services and application maintenance. The major users of IT services are -  Government  Banking  Financial services  Retail and distribution  Manufacturing  Health care IT Enabled Services The services which make extensive use of information and telecommunication technologies are categorized as IT enabled services. The IT enabled services is the most important contributor to the growth of the IT industry of India. Some of the important services covered by the ITES sector in India are -  Customer-interaction services including call-centres  Back-office services  Revenue accounting  Data entry and data conversion  HR services  Transcription and translation services  Content development and animation  Remote education,  Data search  GIS(Geographic Information System)  Market research
  20. 20. Ynot Software Solutions Acharya Bangalore B-School Page 20  Network consultancy Software products Software products are among the most highly exported products from India. The software industry in India originated in the 1970s and grew at a significant pace in the last ten years. Between 1996-1997 and 2002-2003, the Indian software industry grew more than five times from 2630 crores to 13200 crores. During the same period software and service exports from India grew by almost twelve times. Hardware The hardware sector of the IT industry focuses on the manufacturing and assembling of computer hardware. The consumption of computer hardware is high in the domestic market. Due to the rise in the number of IT companies, sales of desktops, laptops, servers, routers, etc have been on the rise in recent years. Many domestic and multi-national; companies have invested in the computer hardware market in India. Another categorization in the structure of India's IT industry is related to the market. There are two major market classifications - the domestic market and the export market. The export market, dominates the IT industry accounting for 75% of the revenue. Challenges for Indian IT sector The first major problem that the Indian IT firms have started to face in recent times is that they are now subject to different legal laws and norms. Each country has its own set of rules. For example not recruiting older employees was fine in India. But they can no longer reject people on the grounds of their age. A case in point is the recent lawsuit filed against Infosys, wherein an individual alleged that the company declined employment to him just on the grounds that he was old. While Infosys has reiterated that they do not discriminate on age, however, they were unable to give a plausible reason for rejection. There are many more such cases that Indian IT companies now face as they expand global operations.
  21. 21. Ynot Software Solutions Acharya Bangalore B-School Page 21 Another major problem that has cropped up is the issue of anti-outsourcing. Indian IT industry has thrived on the work outsourced to them particularly by the developed nations. However, as the developed world faces the brunt of the global crisis, they have started raising their voices against the migration of jobs to India. In recent times, many have imposed stricter visa norms and legal fees. For example, US visa rejection rates for Indian techies have doubled from around 4% to over 8% over the past nine months. As a result, sending IT personnel to onsite locations has become increasingly difficult and expensive for the companies. This would start to have an impact on their margins in times to come. Also as Indian IT firms go global they need to develop the optimum mix of employees. A big dilemma that they face is to get the balance correct in terms of recruiting from the local markets or to assign the jobs to Indian counterparts. The decision is critical as the wrong mix could have an adverse impact on employee morale and productivity. It also has a serious impact on the company's operating costs. Companies like Infosys and TCS have been opening offices in countries outside of India. As a result this problem becomes even more magnified for them. Companies like Wipro who rely more on inorganic growth through acquisitions, also face the same problem.

Web hosts can also provide data centre space and connectivity to the Internet for other servers located in their data centre, called colocation, also known as Housing in Latin America or France. The scope of web hosting services varies greatly. The most basic is web page and small-scale file hosting, where files can be uploaded via File Transfer Protocol (FTP) or a Web interface. The files are usually delivered to the Web "as is" or with minimal processing. Many Internet service providers (ISPs) offer this service free to subscribers. Individuals and organizations may also obtain Web page hosting from alternative service providers. Personal web site hosting is typically free, advertisement-sponsored, or inexpensive. Business web site hosting often has a higher expense depending upon the size and type of the site. Single page hosting is generally sufficient for personal web pages. A complex site calls for a more comprehensive package that provides database support and application development platforms (e.g. PHP, Java, and Ruby on Rails, ColdFusion, or ASP.NET). These facilities allow customers to write or install scripts for applications like forums and content management. Also, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is typically used for websites that wish to keep the data transmitted, more secure. The host may also provide an interface or control panel for managing the Web server and installing scripts, as well as other modules and service applications like e-mail. A web server that does not use a control panel for managing the hosting account, is often referred to as a "headless" server some hosts specialize in certain software or services (e.g. e-commerce, blogs, etc.). Web Development Web development is a broad term for the work involved in developing a web site for the Internet (World Wide Web) or an intranet (a private network). Web development can range from developing the simplest static single page of plain text to the most complex web- based internet applications, electronic businesses, and social network services. A more comprehensive list of tasks to which web development commonly refers, may include web
  24. 24. Ynot Software Solutions Acharya Bangalore B-School Page 24 design, web content development, client liaison, client-side/server-side scripting, web server and network security configuration, and e-commerce development. Among web professionals, "web development" usually refers to the main non-design aspects of building web sites: writing mark-up and coding. Most recently Web development has come to mean the creation of content management systems or CMS. These CMS can be made from scratch, proprietary (such as Open Text) or open source (such as Drupal). In broad terms the CMS acts as middleware between the database and the user through the browser. A principle benefit of a CMS is that it allows non-technical people to make changes to their Web site without having technical knowledge. For larger organizations and businesses, web development teams can consist of hundreds of people (web developers) and follow standard methods like agile methodologies while developing websites. Smaller organizations may only require a single permanent or contracting developer, or secondary assignment to related job positions such as a graphic designer and/or information systems technician. Web development may be a collaborative effort between departments rather than the domain of a designated department. E-Commerce Solutions E-commerce (also written as e-Commerce, e-commerce or similar variants), short for electronic commerce, is trading in products or services using computer networks, such as the Internet. Electronic commerce draws on technologies such as mobile commerce, electronic funds transfer, supply chain management, Internet marketing, online transaction processing, electronic data interchange (EDI), inventory management systems, and automated data collection systems. Modern electronic commerce typically uses the World Wide Web for at least one part of the transaction's life cycle, although it may also use other technologies such as e-mail. E-commerce businesses may employ some or all of the following:  Online shopping web sites for retail sales direct to consumers.  Providing or participating in online marketplaces, which process third-party business-to- consumer or consumer-to-consumer sales.
  25. 25. Ynot Software Solutions Acharya Bangalore B-School Page 25  Business-to-business buying and selling.  Gathering and using demographic data through web contacts and social media.  Business-to-business electronic data interchange.  Marketing to prospective and established customers by e-mail or fax (for example, with newsletters).  Engaging in prevail for launching new products and services. Mobile App Development Mobile application development is a term used to denote the act or process by which application software is developed for handheld devices, such as personal digital assistants, enterprise digital assistants or mobile phones. These applications can be pre-installed on phones during manufacturing platforms, or delivered as web applications using server-side or client-side processing (e.g. JavaScript) to provide an "application-like" experience within a Web browser. Application software developers also have to consider a lengthy array of screen sizes, hardware specifications and configurations because of intense competition in mobile software and changes within each of the platforms. Mobile app development has been steadily growing, both in terms of revenues and jobs created. A 2013 analyst report estimates there are 529,000 direct App Economy jobs within the EU 28 members, 60% of which are mobile app developers. As part of the development process, Mobile User Interface (UI) Design is also an essential in the creation of mobile apps. Mobile UI considers constraints & contexts, screen, input and mobility as outlines for design. The user is often the focus of interaction with their device, and the interface entails components of both hardware and software. User input allows for the users to manipulate a system, and device's output allows the system to indicate the effects of the users' manipulation. Mobile UI design constraints include limited attention and form factors, such as a mobile device's screen size for a user's hand(s). Mobile UI contexts signal cues from user activity, such as location and scheduling that can be shown from user interactions within a mobile application. Overall, mobile UI design's goal is primarily for an understandable, user- friendly interface. The UI of mobile apps should: consider users' limited attention, minimize
  26. 26. Ynot Software Solutions Acharya Bangalore B-School Page 26 keystrokes, and be task-oriented with a minimum set of functions. This functionality is supported by Mobile enterprise application platforms or integrated development environments (IDEs). Mobile UIs, or front-ends, rely on mobile back-ends to support access to enterprise systems. The mobile back-end facilitates data routing, security, authentication, authorization, working off-line, and service orchestration. This functionality is supported by a mix of middleware components including mobile app servers, Mobile Backend as a service (MBaaS), and SOA infrastructure. Web Content Development Web content development is the process of researching, writing, gathering, organizing, and editing information for publication on websites. Website content may consist of prose, graphics, pictures, recordings, movies or other digital assets that could be distributed by a hypertext transfer protocol server, and viewed by a web browser. Content Developers and Web Developers When the World Wide Web began, web developers either developed online content themselves, or modified existing documents and coded them into hypertext mark up language (HTML). In time, the field of web site development came to encompass many technologies, so it became difficult for web site developers to maintain so many different skills. Content developers are specialized web site developers who have content generation skills such as graphic design, multimedia development, professional writing, and documentation. They can integrate content into new or existing web sites without using information technology skills such as script language programming and database programming. Content developers may also be search engine optimization specialists, or Internet marketing professionals. High quality, unique content is what search engines are looking for and content development specialists therefore have a very important role to play in the search engine optimization process. One issue currently plaguing the world of web content development is keyword-stuffed content which are prepared solely for the purpose of manipulating a search engine. This is giving a bad name to genuine web content writing professionals. The effect is writing content designed to appeal to machines (algorithms) rather than people or
  27. 27. Ynot Software Solutions Acharya Bangalore B-School Page 27 community. Search engine optimization specialists commonly submit content to Article Directories to build their website's authority on any given topic. Most Article Directories allow visitors to republish submitted content with the agreement that all links are maintained. This has become a method of Search Engine Optimization for many websites today. If written according to SEO copywriting rules, the submitted content will bring benefits to the publisher (free SEO- friendly content for a webpage) as well as to the author (a hyperlink pointing to his/her website, placed on an SEO-friendly webpage). Ynot Software Solutions is providing Software Services for the past 2 years. They have collaborated with 3rd party and providing Electrical, Plumbing and many other services. They have a website called City Snap where they collect pictures from local Merchants and post Ads according to their payment. City Snap Overview To provide fast, free, reliable and comprehensive information to our users and connect buyers to sellers.

  30. 30. Ynot Software Solutions Acharya Bangalore B-School Page 30 3rd PARTY They heard many people say that it is impossible to find a plumber / electrician / carpenter who is reliable and can do a quality job. This set them thinking why the current search directories don't work. The reasons were many  They were paid listings  Reviews were fake / not reliable  And once if they leave our contact number with search directories, they would get a plethora of calls making their life hell Moreover, they still don't have a clue of which service provider to engage with as there is no guarantee of quality of work, fair pricing and the provider coming on time to do the job. This set them thinking, why this process has to be so painful. Why can’t they buy local services the way they buy products from ecommerce sites on the click of a button? 3rd Party was conceived to solve precisely this pain area. How they do it  They aggregate quality suppliers and ensure availability, quality and reliability.  They ensure that each service provider is certified for skills, they do this by an extensive certification provided by a 3rd party.  They further ensure their safety by doing a complete background check on their service providers for address verification and criminal history check.  They provide the technology platform for service providers to accept jobs and reach the customer location on time. The customer is able to track the movement of the service provider and know exactly the estimated time of arrival.
  31. 31. Ynot Software Solutions Acharya Bangalore B-School Page 31  The pricing is absolutely transparent with no hidden costs and mentioned upfront for the job (Labor Charges). Material cost would be charged on actual and is to be paid directly to the service provider. 1. Home page 2. Admin page

Hosting services Website maintenance Software development Software development process is as follows Agile Development Cycle an agile development cycle is different. Instead, the initial planning and analysis is kept to a very high level, just enough to outline the scope of the development
  36. 36. Ynot Software Solutions Acharya Bangalore B-School Page 36 project. Then the team goes through a series of iterations, analyzing, designing, developing and testing each feature in turn within the iterations. For instance, it might look a bit more like this: There aren’t really any distinct stages during the development. Instead, each feature is taken from start to finish within iteration, with the software being released at the end of each iteration or if appropriate even during iteration. Iteration is simply a fixed, short period of time that the team chooses to work within. Typically for agile teams, iteration is between 1 week and 30 days. Strictly speaking, the Scrum agile development methodology advocates 30 days, but I’ve encountered very few teams that actually do this. 2 or 3 weeks seems to be more common. The Extreme Programming agile methodology advocates 1 week. This is very short and in my experience requires quite a lot of maturity in the team and its processes to achieve, because getting to a stable release every week can be difficult. Either way, the principles are the same. The idea is to stick to short, fixed-length iterations and complete all stages of the development cycle for each feature in turn within iteration. The key difference this creates is visibility of complete working features much earlier in the project life cycle, allowing for a better gauge of progress and quality, and allowing for feedback and adaption along the way. The result is to see some results earlier, mitigate risk, and to allow flexibility to accommodate change. One of the dangers of a waterfall approach is that by the time the detailed up-front planning, analysis and
  37. 37. Ynot Software Solutions Acharya Bangalore B-School Page 37 design are done, let alone by the time the solution is developed and tested, many requirements may have changed – especially these days when the pace of change is so incredibly fast. Agile mitigates this risk too, helping to ensure that the right solution is delivered.

  41. 41. Ynot Software Solutions Acharya Bangalore B-School Page 41 Chapter – 3 Organization Hierarchy
  42. 42. Ynot Software Solutions Acharya Bangalore B-School Page 42 ORGANIZATION HEIRARCHY There are many small and medium software companies which do not follow this hierarchy and have their own adhoc way of defining positions in the company.
  43. 43. Ynot Software Solutions Acharya Bangalore B-School Page 43 There are basically two teams in a software association. First one is project teams and second is quality teams. Project teams are those who execute the project and quality teams are comprised of testers and SQA (Software Quality Assurance Testers). The quality team looks after the quality part of the project. Director and CTO (chief technical officer) are on the top of the hierarchy of the company. The main role of the director is to handle finances; he is responsible of all activities in the company. The CTO’s main role is to have a bird’s eye view of technical as well as management operations in the project. CTO and project managers to see to higher level day-to-day operation in every project. The program manager normally does not interact directly with the developers or testers, he only takes daily reports and from project managers and monitors the project. Software engineers have around 1 to 2 years of experience. Interviewers expect software engineers to be technically at medium level. Senior software engineers have around 2 to 4 years of experience. Interviewers expect them to technically be very strong. Project leads handle the majority of technical aspects of the project and should have around 4 to 8 years of experience. Project managers are expected to be roughly 40% technically strong and should have experience above 10 years. But they are more interviewed from the aspect of project management, client interaction, people management, proposal preparation, etc. So now judge where you stand, and where you want to go. Let’s see the bottom of the hierarchy: Junior tester: Junior testers normally have 1 to 2 years of experience or are entry level. Their main task is executing test procedures prepared by seniors. Senior tester: Senior testers generally have 2 to 4 years of experience and are expected to know how to prepare test plans. They are also aware of various metrics and testing techniques which help them to communicate project health. But the main expectation from a senior tester is that he should independently prepare test plans based on the requirement documents. Team lead tester: Team lead testers mainly help and guide the senior testers. They are primarily
  44. 44. Ynot Software Solutions Acharya Bangalore B-School Page 44 involved in deciding the testing strategy, what kind of automation tool used, etc. They also act as a bridge between the project manager and the other team members. Project test manager: The main job of a project test manager is to collect accurate metrics and report them to the project manager. He is also responsible for interacting with SQA to give updates on the quality of the project. They are also involved in the requirement phase. SQA: If you are starting your career as a tester then you would surely aim to become an SQA (Software Quality Assurance) leader somewhere down the line. The main job of SQA is to define the quality standard of the organization and to ensure that every project follows the quality process. THE PRESENT ORGANIZATION STRUCTURE As company is private company there is only one CEO. A typical organization structure of Ynot Software Solutions has shown above. The organization has Chief operating Officer (COO) as head next to CEO. A company branch has got six departments. That holds finance department, human resource department, marketing department, Information Technology department, administrative department, customer service department. Finance Department further has account section and support. Human Resource Department further has H R Manager Section and support. Marketing Department further has market section and support. Information Technology Department further has Development section and Quality Assurance.
  45. 45. Ynot Software Solutions Acharya Bangalore B-School Page 45 Chapter – 4 Functional Areas
  46. 46. Ynot Software Solutions Acharya Bangalore B-School Page 46 FUNCTIONAL AREAS OF YNOT SOFTWARE SOLUTIONS In Ynot Software Solutions the following are the departments that perform various functions to attain their department objective which in turn confine towards attaining organization’s mission as whole. VARIOUS DEPARTMENTS ARE  MARKETING DEPARTMENT  FINANCE DEPARTMENT  HUMAN RESOURCE DEPARTMENT  ADMINISTRATION DEPARTMENT  CUSTOMER SERVICE DESK(CSD) DEPARTMENT  INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY DEPARTMENT MARKETING DEPARTMENT With business becoming increasingly competitive, marketing has become more important than ever before. Marketing involves determining consumer needs, translating those needs into products and services, and selling them in a highly competitive global marketplace. It requires analytical skills as well as intuition, logic, and creativity. Objectives of Marketing Department 1. Creation of Demand: The marketing management’s first objective is to create demand through various means. A conscious attempt is made to find out the preferences and tastes of the consumers. Goods and services are produced to satisfy the needs of the customers. Demand is also created by informing the customers the utility of various goods and services.
  47. 47. Ynot Software Solutions Acharya Bangalore B-School Page 47 2. Customer Satisfaction: The marketing manager must study the demands of customers before offering them any goods or services. Selling the goods or services is not that important as the satisfaction of the customers’ needs. Modern marketing is customer- oriented. It begins and ends with the customer. 3. Market Share: Every business aims at increasing its market share, i.e., the ratio of its sales to the total sales in the economy. For instance, Infosys ties up with Microsoft, Hitachi, and Huawei. 4. Generation of Profits: The marketing department is the only department which generates revenue for the business. Sufficient profits must be earned as a result of sale of want-satisfying products. If the firm is not earning profits, it will not be able to survive in the market. Moreover, profits are also needed for the growth and diversification of the firm. 5. Creation of Goodwill and Public Image: To build up the public image of a firm over a period is another objective of marketing. The marketing department provides quality products to customers at reasonable prices and thus creates its impact on the customers. The marketing manager attempts to raise the goodwill of the business by initiating image- building activities such a sales promotion, publicity and advertisement, high quality, reasonable price, convenient distribution outlets, etc.
  48. 48. Ynot Software Solutions Acharya Bangalore B-School Page 48 STRUCTURE OF MARKETING DEPARTMENT Responsibilities ofMarketing Department Strategy The senior member of the marketing department takes responsibility for setting marketing strategy in line with overall company strategy and objectives. The strategy may be to increase share in a specific market sector, for example, to enter a new sector, or to open a new channel of distribution, such as the Internet, to reach a wider geographical market. The marketing department reaches agreement on strategy with the board or senior management team before planning campaigns in detail. Market Research Market research is a key responsibility for the marketing department. Research helps the company identify market opportunities and gain a better understanding of customer needs. It also helps them understand competitors’ strengths and weaknesses so they can take action to protect

  62. 62. Ynot Software Solutions Acharya Bangalore B-School Page 62 CONCLUSION IT continues to develop rapidly as the key underlying technologies of semiconductors, disk drives, and network communications improve at exponential rates. Constant improvements in the underlying technologies make possible new IT applications that affect all areas of society, including the economy, households, government, and the R&D enterprise. Throughout society, the utility of IT applications tends to advance much more slowly than the underlying technologies. A doubling of processing speeds, for example, does not bring a doubling of utility. The effective implementation and use of IT are the result of a complex process that requires not only adoption of a technology but also changes in organizations and institutions. As part of this process, individuals and organizations actively adapt (and sometimes resist) the technologies. As a result, the effects of IT on society often take place more slowly than visionaries predict. Nevertheless, the effects driven by the continual change in underlying technologies are substantial over time.
