Contribution to the field
I'm an Architect with the Products, Platforms and Solutions arm of the Retail, CPG, Logistics and Life Sciences unit at Infosys Limited. With over 9 years of experience in RFID/ wireless technologies, I focus on the architecture and development of real-time high performance products, and consulting.
Advice for upcoming professionals
Practice makes perfect. Writing a program and making it run all by yourself is equivalent to reading ten books on the same topic. Stay hands-on, and more practical than theoretical.
Work life Management
Stay involved in extra curricular activities. I like rock-music and playing the guitar. I also play chess and have played in several tournaments, including a game against world champion GM Vishwanathan Anand.
I'm involved in Architecture, design and development of products, platforms and solutions using Object Oriented programming in Java. I specialize in RFID and wireless technologies, and also perform consulting for clients, as well as conducting training and knowledge-sessions for new team members.
Changes in professional environment
The company has grown six times over the last 9 years, but I still feel passionate about my work, organization and group.
Your role model
Nandan Nilekani, simply because he is very impressive and dynamic. He knows how to connect with people, communicate effectively, and also how to excel at his job.
The Big Question
I have been fortunate enough to get the opportunity to focus on something great, to understand the big picture, and to utilize my skills for patentable work. With several publications, awards and acclaims to my merit, I feel content that I have been recognized for my capabilities and efforts.
Starting Differently Again
“Nothing. From tracking horses on the race course using wireless sensors to automating the assembly of an aeroplane using RFID, I'm satisfied and happy with what I received a chance to work upon, and the contributions that I have had towards my organization as well as the industry.”
The Most Important Game
We had a deployment at a client location abroad for a wireless-sensor application. We tested it using simulators here, but couldn't replicate the hardware scenario due to lack of infrastructure. When the deliverables didn't run, I worked to build it from scratch in a limited 2-day time-frame.
