In June 2017 I completed six years with Capgemini, which is only the third organization that I have worked in my 21 years of professional life. That’s about one-third of my working life and I have an instinct this inning might continue and possibly become my longest stint with an organization. I am very happy to state that four more years will make it 10 years with Capgemini and also 25 years in this ever-evolving, innovative and self-sustaining industry—I call it “Intuitive Technology.”
So, what made me persevere in this industry and Capgemini?
I did some introspection while on my two-week summer break. The setting was perfect in the hills of Shimla, India as I was sipping my evening tea watching the summer sun hide behind the Himalayas. A setting like that would have inspired a thousand poets and it actually brought out the poet in me too and I typed the following lines on my smart phone that will automatically save the note on Cloud!
Introspect, I did, through memories of six years gushing out in high velocity
Dissect, I had to all structured and unstructured data with veracity
Analyzing such volume of information would have been a chore
Appetizing was the variety that I was happy to take even more!
I believe in facts supported by data and its derived insight
Persevering it with passion was a no brainer, in hindsight!
Bold, Modest, and Honest I am, with the right team spirt too
Freedom, Fun, and Trust are other values I look up to
With creativity, collaboration and clients on the table
All I have to do is lead by example and let core values enable.
Insights and Data—cool place to be!
Information is at our finger tips, and the power of processing and propagating it has advanced so much that in few years’ time it is predicted that “Our number one technology interface will be the human body. We will open doors by placing our eye up to a scanning device, our voice will confirm our identity at the pharmacy. Our passports, insurance cards and driver’s licenses will be tossed in the recycling bin as our relationship with the world becomes easier, more direct and more fluid.” Extract from http://www.capgemini50.com/en/paying-by-heartbeat.html
As part of Capgemini “Insights and Data” global practice, I get to pursue my passion and work with some brilliant minds and ambitious clients who I collaborate with to help them strategize and transform the Data Landscape or how to create more business value out of the potential hidden in the data. I have a desire to help these organizations and individuals achieve stated goals through fun and its outcome, i.e. Happiness.
