07 Nov

ab   During his time as a financial analyst and fund manager in Zurich, Switzerland in the 90’s, Dr. Anders Bally had a vision to connect the world and democratize wisdom of the crowd. Like most innovators, he identified the key obstacles in how financial news was used and assimilated, and found a cutting-edge solution. 20 years later, having built a number of companies, Bally received the 2016 Swiss Fintech Award for bringing his vision to life with Sentifi.

Sentifi has become the most recognized name in crowd-based artificial intelligence for financial information in key markets including Europe and Asia. After seeing the emerging power of the financial market in India, Bally is honored to visit Mumbai, India, as the keynote speaker for UNICOM’s first Financial Analytics & Blockchain Summit on Nov. 10 and 11.

“The world we are living in is changing daily, even hourly,” said Bally. “Globally, there are 2.2 billion people connected to social media, sharing their knowledge, opinions and judgments.” In his keynote speech, dubbed “The Financial Information Paradigm Shift,” Bally will explain the transformation — from traditional media to social media — and how the financial community should address and access this information.

In the workshop “Integration of Crowd-Intelligence in Financial Analyses and Investment Decisions” later in the day, Bally will give an insider’s view on different ways to tap into crowd-intelligence and extracts unlimited information to turn into financial insights that can maximize investment strategies.

“It’s my first time in India, and a great honor to be the keynote speaker for UNICOM” said Bally. “I’m looking forward to introducing Sentifi to the country’s financial markets; as well as connecting everyone to the power of our crowd intelligence technology.”

Established in 2010 with headquarters in India and the U.K., UNICOM hosts a variety of events around the world including conferences, contests, webinars, public workshops, certified training courses and networking events. With this summit, UNICOM hopes to address and ignite conversations about the hottest topics and trends in the financial sector, including big data, market perspectives, blockchain, fraud and cybersecurity.

India Testing Awards 2015: Interview with Test Leader of the Year Award Winner Renu Rajani

22 Mar

“My company carried my award story on our Talent front page for a week and also Capgemini’s Facebook page. I felt like I was Ms Universe in Testing World”- says Renu Rajani, Vice President at Capgemini (Testing Global Service Line) and the winner of Test Leader of the Year Award-2015.

 

Renu Rajani, won the ‘Test Leader of the Year Award’ at the India Testing Awards 2015. The award recognizes practitioners and companies who have created Testing programs that define the future of product development, services and support. The felicitation ceremony was part of the ‘World Conference Next Gen Testing’ that witnessed participation from senior executives across global IT companies. 

Over a quick meeting, Unicom team spoke to Renu to find out more about her achievement:

Test Leader of the Year 2015-Renu Rajani

Test Leader of the Year 2015-Renu Rajani

 

1. What was your approach in filling up the application form?

The award application form has sections on –

  • Background – Objective/Challenge.  The applicant should describe the challenges/ objectives that inspired the Testing Methodology and the key accomplishments relating to the same.  In this section, I focused on testing transformation challenges handled by me in an innovative/unique manner.
  • Top-3 Testing Projects – Here specific experiences from 3 projects where I made a difference. In describing each of my project, I was specific on the outcome I was trying to accomplish with specific method/approach and how I specifically kept in mind customer needs.
  • Testing mindset, philosophy and demonstrable Action on these projects here I specifically listed execution plan, challenges encountered, results and feedback from across stakeholders.
  • Recommendations from Industry – Your leaders may want to nominate you and in such case might want to put recommendations.  Ensure these are fair and unbiased and reflection of your work. In todays social media world, one can use some of the recommendations provided online by your senior industry network contacts over platforms such as LinkedIN and these do carry good weight if coming from a credible source.
  • Measurable Impact – I include specific examples, facts and data points on impact (quantitative and qualitative) my projects, approach/method have created.
  • Why Me – In this section make a compelling reason for you to be awarded.  The justifications should be around impact you have created, thought leadership you bring to the table that is acknowledged by industry, etc.
  • List of Team members groomed by you – this is yet another way to demonstrate the impact.  How have people groomed under you have benefitted the industry and what do they think of you? What does industry think of people groomed under you.  Again, if you have worked at your social media presence, that could speak for itself!

Finally, The award is an acknowledgement of one’s work in the Testing field.  More than preparation or credentials stated in the application, it is the thought leadership of the individual and how his/her work is showcased to the external world, which play an essential role in the voting process. The application response is a reflection of how someone has established him/herself in the field over the career span.

 

2. Please share the first thought when you realized that you have won the award?

I felt like I was Ms Universe in Testing World and that I had duty to serve as thought leader and role model to the testing universe. Being active in diversity and women leadership initiatives for last many years and having nurtured women careers in testing, I also felt the award being conferred to a woman held even more significance and role modeling for women in IT.

 

3. What was the significance of winning this award to you/your organisation?

This award acknowledges my professional thought leadership, evangelism in testing space, as well as reinforces Capgemini’s positioning in Testing Community and marketplace.

 

Renu Rajani

4. How did your friends, relatives and colleagues respond to your win. Do you remember any particular comment from your colleagues or company that you would like to share?

My entire team felt it was a great acknowledgement of my work. My manager Govindarajan Muthukrishnan was too pleased.  In my mind the award as much belonged to him as he offered me tremendous platform in terms of my roles that gave me opportunity to demonstrate transformational leadership in testing space.  My company carried my award story on our Talent front page for a week, as well as on Capgemini Facebook page under #betheyou hashtag.  I really did mind myself on the top of the world!

 

Capgemini Expert Connect is the platform that provides tremendous visibility to global empanelled experts like myself who are brand ambassadors for our companies thought leadership.  The Expert connect platform and Architecture community also widely carried my award news.

 

5. Please describe your experience of the day the award was held?

On the day award ceremony was held, it was day-2 of the conference event and I was a speaker as well in the event. I had just returned from my international travel, in barely few hours of landing went to the event for my session .  The hotel had trophies displayed without names.  Names of 15 nominees for this award were on the Unicom portal and all were requested to stay in the evening to hear the verdict! I was tired on the day due to travel and was about to leave for the day and when organizers learnt I was leaving for the day, they could not have told me I was the winner of the award.  They gently requested I better wait for 2 hours for the evening ceremony.  I stayed thinking I would congratulate the winners, only to figure out that KPMG and jury had selected me as “Testing Leader of the Year 2015”.  Like I said, when I stood with the trophy, I felt on the top of the world

 

6. What do you think differentiated you from rest of the nominees? 

One’s Point of View and thought leadership in the field, healthy networks within the industry and visibility of work on social media is important. One has to be an acknowledged thought leader and evangelist for bagging such recognitions.

For my candidature, the application scored the highest with a score of 9/10 points. The jury remarks read:  ‘Overall strength in various aspects of testing including from actual implementation to evangelism with everything in between. Good social media influence’.

 

7. What message you have for those reading your interview?

2015 has seen focus on Digital with testing Agile/DevOps/Continuous Integration mode becoming mainstay.  The market shifts have new demands on our talent to continue to upgrade and up-skill ourselves to stay relevant in this changing marketplace.

Testing & QA profession leverages the best of individuals’ multi-faceted – business, technical, process, soft skills, domain and industry skills.  Be proud to belong to this profession and value it continues to offer to the industry.

India Agile Awards 2015: Interview with Agile Leader of the Year Award Winner Tathagat Varma (TV)

18 Mar

 

Tathagat Varma (TV) was announced as the the winner of Agile Leader of the year award at India Agile Awards 2015, held in Vivanta by Taj, Bangalore , an annual award function, that is held every year and attended by hundreds of IT professionals in India. After winning the award on 19th June,2015 among 5 other final nominees,  we caught up with Tathagat Varma and interviewed him to find out more about him about winning this award and his success.  We also gained an insight on what influenced him and what advise he would give to other IT professionals.

 

Tathagat Varma

Tathagat Varma

UNICOM: What was your approach in filling up the application form?

TV:  Every time you sit down to write down things about yourself, it is a great opportunity to reflect back upon your work. I have never felt that one should use such opportunity to “brag” about their accomplishments, but rather use it to retrospect upon the learning they have undergone as a result of what they done. So, I had a very similar experience. The fact that a professional jury was going to look into it was my added incentive – it’s always nice to learn from experts.

 

UNICOM: Please share the first thought when you realised that you have won the award?

TV: I initially felt happy to be bestowed by the honor. And the next feeling is that of being deeply humbled by the respect shown by the jury and the community. You feel a sense of obligation for the community to serve it even more, and find opportunities to help as many people as you possibly can. When a lot of people look up to you, you have a great responsibility to live up to their trust and respect – not just for them, but even to yourself!

UNICOM: What was the significance of winning this award to you/your organisation?

TV:   I was already a freelance agile coach and consultant by the time I was announced the winner for 2015. Personally, it was a good feedback on my thought process. Though on a professional basis, I haven’t used this accomplishment to really “sell” myself, as that would perhaps be a bit shallow way of looking at one’s journey. All I can say is that it gave me a new sense of energy and purpose to keep doing the work, and and then some more!

 

India Agile Awards 2015

India Agile Awards 2015

 

UNICOM How did your friends, relatives and colleagues respond to your win. Do you remember any particular comment from your colleagues or company that you would like to share?

TV:   There were lots of wishes from friends and professional well-wishers. I am ever grateful to them for their support and encouragement.

 

UNICOM: Please describe your experience of the day the award was held?

TV:  It was a wonderful day. We had the keynote by Mr. Ashok Soota, who was awarded the Lifetime Award. He also delivered keynote and graciously accepted the award. I was conducting the Agile Olympiad during the day, which always draws a large number of professionals, and we had some great teams in the final round. I remember going to all the winners and personally congratulating them on their accomplishment.

Tathagat Varma

UNICOM: What do you think differentiated you from rest of the nominees? 

TV :  I think all other finalists are well-respected thought leaders in the agile field, and were equally worthy of being crowned as the winner. I know most of the other finalists, and have a deep respect for their professional accomplishments. I can’t say on behalf of the jury on what they found different in my work, but if I have to take a guess, it probably will be my community work in terms of presenting at conferences, delivering talks, writing articles, etc.

 

UNICOM: What message you have for those reading your interview?

TV:   We have a vibrant community of agile practitioners and enthusiasts. Get involved in whatever way you can – as learner, as volunteer for the events, as speakers for the meetups, as bloggers for conferences, and so on. Your involvement makes a BIG difference. You will not only learn about agile, but you will be able to network with other like-minded professionals who will help enrich you professionally.

Swapnil Saurav was the winner at Manager’s Olympiad 2015, an annual contest that is held every year and attended by thousands of Managers in India. After his success as a winner on 8th October,2015 among 980 participants,  we caught up with Swapnil and interviewed him to find out more about his process behind his winning the contest.  We also gained an insight on what influenced him and what advise he would give to the managers in India to be a part of Manager’s Olympiad Contest.

Winner Swapnil Saurav

Winner Swapnil Saurav

1. Did you need to prepare for the contest? If yes, how did you prepare?

A: Yes, I knew I will have to compete with best minds in India hence I prepared hard for the Olympiad. I looked at all the project management related topics on the internet. I had downloaded study material on my laptop and phone and I prepared hard for 2 weeks. I was preparing for my PMP hence the PMP training also helped me.

2. Imagine the moment when contest’s finals was starting and you were amongst the top 4 finalists. Were you intimidated by the competition?

Not really. I was happy to be in the semis and that in itself was satisfying and felt rewarded. When I met the other participants at the event and found them experienced and very knowledgeable, I knew I was in a great company. I didn’t even expect to clear the semifinals round and I was happy to make good friends at the event. And as they say, it just happened.

3. Please share the first thought when you realised that you have won Manager’s Olympiad.

It was totally an unbelievable feeling. Although optimistic, because I had prepared myself, it took me time to realize that I have won the Managers’ Olympiad. When 100s of managers in the room come and congratulate you, naturally you feel on top of the world.

4. How did your friends, relatives and colleagues respond to your win. Do you remember any particular comment from your colleagues or company that you will like to share?

I was very happy informing each one of them as they had supported and encouraged me all along. They congratulated me and were happy for me. One of my colleague joked that “now that you are the winner of Managers Olympiad, I will not argue with you in any discussion”. Though that never happened but it did help me to gain more respect in my team and gain more visibility in the company.

5. Quite a few managers wish to participate again in Manager’s Olympiad. Will they have to compete with you – winner of 2015? :)

Yes.. they have to beat me to win the title from me  ;-)

6. Please describe your experience of the day the contest was held?

It looked normal day till the results came in  J  When the results of round 1 was announced and I had to make a call whether to travel to Bangalore or not, I was wondering if it would be a worthwhile to travel to another city on a weekday. Keeping aside the winning part of the contest, the learning I got there was amazing. It was a busy day but a day well spent. They UNICOM team was simply amazing and they made sure that everything went smooth without any glitch.

7. What do you think differentiated you from rest of the participants? What do you think they should have had in breakfast to win?

I really don’t think there was big of a difference between me and the others. I think luck was on my side on that particular day. What to eat in the breakfast? No I am not letting out the secret  ;-)

8. Do you think companies should encourage their managers to participate at the prestigious Manager’s Olympiad 2016 due in April in Bangalore?

Off course yes. This event is one of its kind in India. The event provides an opportunity for managers to come a platform, discuss their challenges, share their  learning and best practices and learn about new technologies and methodologies.

9. Should cost of participation ne borne by individuals or by their companies?

It is a prestigious event and participation also includes access to the conference where experts discusses the problem faced in the industry. There is lot of opportunities for participants to learn. I think company should support their associates. My company supported me financially including my travel from Hyderabad and that was decided before I won the contest.

10. What message you have for those reading your interview and undecided about participating at the contest?

Just go for it. Its not about winning but about learning new things. We are so busy with our everyday work that we don’t get time to learn. Manager’s Olympiad provide a great opportunity to learn from experts, get to know the new stuffs and it provides a great opportunity for networking.

So what are you waiting for? If you would like to take part in this contest, don’t forget that our  Entries is now open!
