The Software Industry in India is growing at a pace which is one of the fastest the world over. Its no surprise that World Bank predicts that the Indian Software Industry will be the largest in the world by 2015. One of the main reasons for this, as we all know, is the availability of a vast pool of young talent available in the country at a very low cost. India has one of the largest number of graduates in the world and a vast chunk among these are engineers graduating from the numerous colleges all scattered all over the country. This gives the Indian companies a fatal edge over their competitors. No wonder even this has forced the global software giants to sit up and take notice and a number of them have set-up their operations in India.
But things are not as easy as they seem to be. The profitability of this industry has spurred intense competition wit a number of players fighting to take a bigger share of the pie. With business coming from all over the globe, companies often struggle to find the suitable resources which can fit the bill. The vast raw manpower pool in the country presents itself as both an opportunity and a challenge. Companies spend a significant amount in training and development of these resources in the hope that they will get an equally good return. However the high attrition rate and the dynamic and unpredictable nature of the business make things worse. Projects keep on coming and it’s a challenge to find the right resource with the right skills, at the right time. Companies go in for campus and off campus recruitment drives which are akin to searching for pins in a haystack. Its no wonder that the company ends up losing valuable talent and many a times even ends up selecting substandard resources.
