By: M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bengaluru: Mike Lawrie, CEO of CSC (formerly Computer Sciences Corporation), one of the biggest IT outsourcing services companies, Reportedly said the firm would annually hire thousands in India over the coming years. Earlier this year, CSC and HP Enterprise's services business had announced a merger to create a $26-billion revenue entity . That makes it the third largest IT outsourcing services firm, after IBM and Accenture. The entity has a quarter of its employee strength of 1.8 lakh in India. "India is going to be critical to us. Today , it's less about labour arbitrage. This is not about low cost, but about capability . India has outstanding technical skills," he Reportedly told press in an interaction recently .

India aims to be the accounting back office to the world, many college need to teach US GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles), based on which all accounting work is done . India compete with the Philippines, which teaches this subject in its universities and colleges. ICAI (Institute of Chartered Accountants of India) needto add this as a subject .The Indian business process management (BPM) industry is expected to grow to $50 billion in the next four years, up from $26 billion in 2016, helped by greater adoption of analytics, digital technology and automation, industry body Nasscom said. The sector, which has grown about 1.7 times in the past five years in India, has 2,500 companies and employs close to 1.1 million professionals, covering around 40 languages. India has 37.6% share in the global BPM off shoring market, mainly due to low operating cost. America and Europe continue to be the main growth drivers, but Asia-Pacific too is beginning to offer opportunities. Information and communication technologies companies are mass employers o Indian Engineering graduates..Reportedly Students seeking to join the IT industry should ideally pursue engineering branches such as information technology, information science, computer science, computer engineering, electronics, electronics & communication, and electronics & telecommunication. Applicants should have scored 60% and above marks in class X, XII and at the graduation level and possess good English verbal and written communication skills. Every candidate comes to an interview with a certain level of preparedness. Recruitment teams challenge this preparedness and evaluate candidates on their spontaneity, logic, ability and applied thinking. Interviewees are expected to display their thinking and analytical capabilities. Students are also assessed on their communication and soft skills.Applicants should be confident and honest. During the interview, candidates should display sound subject knowledge, be willing to step outside theory and be solution-oriented in their thought process..

Capgemini is a multinational IT services and consulting company with over 93,000 employees in India. Reportedly The organisation has been ranked as a top IT services companies in India by Nasscom this year and provides fresh graduates opportunities in various sec tors, geographies and technologies. New joinees can expect to work in a high growth and diverse work environment with exposure to global customer facing and onshore roles early in their career. Engineering is one field that is definitely not stagnant. If you graduated years ago, it might be time for a refresher course. "The focus is shifting towards interdisciplinary skills. The IOT (Internet of Things), robotics, nanoelectromechanical and molecular electronics are some of the key emerging technology drivers. There is a strong demand for holisticautomation, at much faster data-speeds to meet the ever-increasing amount of complex data. Thus the engineering jobs now require deep knowledge skills within the Digital Signal Processing, FPGA and LTE-Wireless domains along with a good understanding of emerging Data Structures, algorithms and analytics. Thus, every engineer of the future will need to have strong programming skills, regardless of the engineering domain area," says IT report . "Till now, engineering companies have hired candidates on the basis of their technical expertise only . However, today's marketplace requires more rounded skill sets. Companies are catering to a global clientele with a more fluid set of requirements based on emerging technologies such as mobile computing and big data.This means that engineers will need to have a more balanced amalgamation of technical aptitude and adeptness in softer skill sets.

Julia: a programming language that "walks like python and runs like c” jobs in itc now "require” "coding skills”.The half of the high-paying jobs in information technology now "require” "coding skills” "that many may not have”. Leaning and coding in different smartprogramming language is a skill that is very much in demand and required in today's job market. Free, Open Source and Library-FriendlyJulia is a high-level, high-performance dynamic programming language for technical computing, with syntax that is familiar to users of other technical computing environments. Julia is an emerging star available at http://julialang.org/. It provides a sophisticated compiler, distributed parallel execution, numerical accuracy, and an extensive mathematical function library. Julia's Base library, largely written in Julia itself, also integrates mature, best-of-breed open source C and Fortran libraries for linear algebra, random number generation, signal processing, and string processing. In addition, the Julia developer community is contributing a number of external packages through Julia's built-in package manager at a rapid pace. The core of the Julia implementation is licensed under the MIT license. Various libraries used by the Julia environment include their own licenses such as the GPL, LGPL, and BSD (therefore the environment, which consists of the language, user interfaces, and libraries, is under the GPL). The language can be built as a shared library, so users can combine Julia with their own C/Fortran code or proprietary third-party libraries. Furthermore, Julia makes it simple to call external functions in C and Fortran shared libraries, without writing any wrapper code or even recompiling existing code. You can try calling external library functions directly from Julia's interactive prompt, getting immediate feedback. See LICENSE for the full terms of Julia's licensing. Solving this key business pain point of avoiding to rewrite code in the high-level language is driving the adoption of Julia in finance. It is being used by large hedge fund managers, long-only asset management firms, insurance companies and investment banks. Even U.S. regulators are adopting Julia - it is being used at the New York Federal Reserve Bank and the .According to press reports if terms like SQL, Python and JavaScript aren't on your radar, employers may not be interested in hiring you. However, there is good news for those without coding skills: You can acquire these skills without having to study computer science in college -- sometimes for free in online MOOCS .Roughly half of the jobs in the top income quartile -- defined as those paying $57,000 or more per year -- are in occupations that commonly require applicants to have at least some computer coding knowledge or skill, according to an analysis of 26 million U.S. online job postings released this month by job market analytics firm Burning Glass and Oracle Academy, the philanthropic arm of Oracle focused on computer science education, in Redwood City, Calif. In simple terms, coders write the instructions that tell computers what to do; in-demand programming languages include SQL, Java, JavaScript, C# and Python. This high number is thanks, in part, to the fact that it's not just technology jobs that now require at least some coding knowledge, says Alison Derbenwick Miller, the vice president of Oracle Academy. "Computing has become a tool in every industry,” which means that coding knowledge is now needed for workers across fields, she says. Indeed, everyone from business people who work with data to designers and marketers who create websites to scientists who conduct research now need at least some coding knowledge. Employers and employees -- even those who aren't in the technology field -- say the same. "having some knowledge of coding is essential for job seekers these days,” as it can help them understand the tasks of -- and work more effectively with -- other departments, including their tech and engineering teams.
