PLM and India

When I think about PLM and India, there are many thoughts come to my mind. I wish to share it with all…

PLM Development and India
Many of us know that India is development centre for many software products including Microsoft products. India is really one of the most respected name in software industry. Not only because of the cost advantage but also for creative solutions for product designers. But when we think on the same line for PLM Products, I come across very few names in Indian companies which are development partners for PLM OEMs.
PLM itself is a huge field and there is huge scope for creative solutions to be generated. Those Indians, interested in product development should come forward and start developing small but supportive products for PLMs.

PLM and Implementations in India
There are few Indian OEMs which use PLM like TATA Motors, Mahindra and Mahindra, Bajaj Auto. But scope of PLM in India is limited to such big size industries only. Oh yes, there are certain implementation in middle level companies but most of these are MNCs and hence do not have a driver of PLM Implementation. May be Indians do not have their own products is the key issue. There might be a case that Indians do not have products to sell at global market. But there are products which are designed and sold for domestic market. We should encourage all these companies to use PLM. It has a huge scope. But there is a obstacle for it. PLM Licensing cost. All PPLM OEMs  and /or Open Source PLMs should think of this market and come up with a lost cost but effective product.

I wish that one fine day, India will need large amount of skilled PLM Professionals.

Demand and Supply

hey hey…

Don’t worry. I am not going to bore you all with with typical commerce principles of Demand and Supply. But this time I am just sharing my experience in Job Market.

In past, I mean 2-3 years back, IT industry in India was in boom. Everybody wanted a resource to bill his/her client. So it as sellers market. You just tell somebody that I know these technologies. And you are inn… Now billing starts and you get busy. Your employer gets busy with counting your billable hours and get payment from client.

One fine day client becomes a victim of recession, which is expected at his end. But your employer wanted you to bill till you can. He/she never thought of your weaknesses and provide you training. Simply because your billing hours cannot be spared and you are high billable resource. Suddenly he calls you and tells you that I am unable to pay your salary and you are requested to go back home. So you have no other option than to listen to him/her. You keep on expecting that one fine day he/she will call me back and

keep hope for the same.

Now the market is buyer’s market. Buyer still needs resources, but this time he is recruiting low cost and low quality resources. You are no more required in market due to your buying cost. Even if you lower your buying cost, he/she is not ready to buy your services thinking that same situation may come again and/or you may not be trustworthy.

Demand and Supply are playing their own game. But you are the only resource which is always at loss as they are winners and industry does not need losers.

I hope you are not victim of Demand and Supply Chain.
