Topic Description:
 
The Indian software industry’s exports may grow by about 13% in fiscal year 2014 to $87 billion (around Rs.5.4 trillion today), driven by its ability to offer solutions that integrate new business models such as analytics and cloud-based services, which are part of SMAC (cloud, mobile, analytics, big data and social media services) with traditional ones, according to Nasscom’s Strategic Review 2014 report.
 
SMAC technologies account for less than 10% of the total revenue of IT companies, but according to research firm International Data Corp.’s (IDC’s) estimate, Indian IT vendors will generate at least $225 billion in SMAC-related revenue in 2020. This data shows the need for the Indian IT vendors to undertake a capability building in these technologies for their work force which needs to be led from the front by project managers.

Topic Description:
 
Building a technically strong with good systems programming skills and an in-depth product knowledge is key for successful product management. While it makes business sense to transition products built by high cost labs to countries with lower cost, this is often a huge challenge and not many companies have been successful. The challenges are compounded when it involves operating systems products, which are core to the customers’ business. These products have been developed using proprietary languages and technologies, and these skills are not available in the Indian market. Often the products lack documentation, which makes knowledge transition so much more challenging.
 
This is a case study on how a set of proprietary products were successfully transitioned, and the tools and methodology used for this transition.

Product Transition – Best practices
