How did you get to become an expert in your key topics?

After completion of my graduation in computer science, I was looking to start my career as a programmer but I got my first job as an automation engineer. When I started working & exploring automation fields, I started enjoying automating different manual processes. After a year of experience in the industry, I started working for multiple clients as a freelancer to get diverse experience in automation. Freelancing helps me to understand the importance of automation in different domains.
After four years of experience, I started working with individuals and organisations to train professionals in automation. Today, after several years of experience, I work with different clients & institutes to set up their automation framework & processes and train them in automation.

What sub-topics are you most passionate about?

Automation is an umbrella that covers many sub-technologies. Specifically, I am more passionate about business process automation & automation testing.

What challenges are brands facing in this space?

As per my experience below are some of the challenges brands are facing:

  1. A person who is presenting the tools or product to the customer should have a diverse experience in this space to showcase the comparison/benefits of the product compare to what is available in the market.
  2. Identifying target individuals who are working in the same space that can influence their organisation & convince about the product

What do you think the future holds in this space?

In this era of a fast-changing world, everyone wants speed & accuracy. Automation is a key for any industry to deliver faster & accurate results. At this stage, we have just taken the steps to automate the manual process. There are plenty of innovations & solution can be achieved combining automation with artificial intelligence to have better speed & quality of the product.

What brands are leading the way in this space?

Ranorax, Applitools, UiPath, TestProject, Automation Anywhere.

If a brand wanted to work with you, which activities would you be most interested in collaborating on?

I am more comfortable in speaking than writing so I prefer collaborating with speaking opportunities, video interviews, webinars, podcasts, etc.

What are your passions outside of work?

When I am not working, I enjoy playing all kinds of sport. Also, I like to explore new places & cultures.
