Intelligent Tech Channels Issue 54 - Page 62

Currently , we have a scalable channel model wherein we work directly with channel organisations who resell our low-code , no-code platform to customers . renewal of licenses , there is truly a significant opportunity for the channel to grow with us .
What are the latest trends you see emerging across the channel ?
We ’ re seeing an emerging need for “ hybrid skill sets ” in the channel as three mainstream technologies – low code , robotic process automation ( RPA ) and digital process automation ( DPA ) – begin to merge . Ultimately , each of these technologies is geared towards hyper-automation and as these domains unify , platforms , such as those provided by Kissflow , will enable individual resources at channel organisations to be capable of managing the entire paradigm – from the design process to development and delivery .
We can expect to see momentum in the data analytics and Artificial Intelligent space .
What is your management philosophy ?
I believe in the “ Power of Simple ” and proudly work for an organisation that applies this philosophy to all aspects of business – from our products and channel model to our pricing structure and people management practices . In line with this , I believe in providing my team , our channel partners and our customers with the tools that simplify processes and best position them for success .
When you look back at your career , what has been the most memorable achievement ?
When I started my career as a developer about a decade ago , I was expertly advised that the true potential for career growth lies not in development but rather in sales . This was the turning point in my career as I then pivoted towards sales and marketing . Shortly following this , was another milestone in both my professional and personal life when I moved to the Middle East to join the sales team for a mobile application development platform . Based on these personal milestones , I can confidently say that this kind of transition can yield positive outcomes .
What do you think will be the hot technology talking point of 2021 ?
According to Gartner , 40 % of IT budgets will be directed towards low-code , no-code platforms and this trend will continue till 2024 as the addressable market approaches a value of US $ 40 billion . Along with this , we can expect to see momentum in the data analytics and Artificial Intelligent space as organisations look to effectively utilise their vast data stores to drive business intelligence .
What are your personal interests and where do you like to spend most of your time after work ?
I don ’ t see a distinction between my professional and personal life and so , rather than trying to strike a work-life balance , I focus on ongoing personal development across all aspects of my life . I am an avid fan of cricket and over the last four years , I have taken to playing badminton with a passion . An aspect of this sport that is especially appealing to me is that it requires mental toughness and keen focus to achieve the right positioning and placement , and effectively mitigate an opponent ’ s strengths . •
