How has being an entrepreneur affected your family and social life?

Luckily my social life was not much affected because of my wife’s proactive approach. Her cooperation has helped me to manage and improve the social relations in the initial years of establishment of Solution Analysts.

However, family life was somewhat affected as I could not spend much time at home at the beginning of Solution Analysts. Here also, I should mention that my wife has assisted me a lot. She handled all the administration-related activities so that I could focus on the project execution. After some years, everything has got settled and I could maintain the subtle balance between work and life.

Whom do you consider your idol or biggest motivator?

Well, to start with, my father has remained the biggest motivator throughout my life. His life lessons still guide and lead me toward achieving the goals. However, I do admire many people for various qualities like courage, innovative approach, and leadership.

 Share best 3 applications which your company created or used for business.

In our exciting journey of over eight years, we have developed over 350 apps for the global clientele. We have made many innovative and outstanding apps to date. I would like to mention WYA App and Threadshare App from the array of best apps.

What are your hobbies? What do you do in your non-work time?

Playing Cricket and watching movies are my favorite pastimes. I am a family man and always prefer to keep the family members with me. For example, when I play cricket with my team, I like to keep my son with me as a player.

I spend the non-work time reading self-help books. I occasionally do meditation and other activities that keep me away from any sort of stress.

Have you raised any funding? Or Have any plans for the funding?

No. We have not raised any funding yet. Also, there is no plan for the same in the near future.

Give your opinions on how far this app revolution can make a difference in the technology world?

One thing is certain, mobile apps are here to stay. The level of app complexity is going to increase amid growing competition and ever-changing business requirements. This app revolution is going to continue for a long time, and technological advancements will make an impact on the development process.

Thinking about the difference made by the app revolution in the technology world, I would mention that as we witness the paradigm shift from individual apps to an enterprise software solution, we will see the advent of more advanced and next-gen apps with futuristic features. Such apps will be capable of offering the benefits of IoT and AI to the users.

What are the challenges you see in the outsourcing industry?

The outsourcing industry is thriving, but unfortunately, many service providers still rely on traditional processes while working on the client’s projects. The suppliers are confused about selecting the right outsourcing partner amid the growing number of stereotype outsourcing companies.

In coming years, as the suppliers are getting more concerned about their projects, the outsourcing companies need to address the challenges related to timezone difference, integration of advanced technology, use of cutting-edge tools, and the like to survive and thrive.

What’s more, though the virtual world can make the life easy when it comes to finding an outsourcing service provider, the in-person meetings are still preferable to get a clear picture and build the long-term business relationships. Though online validation is good, the physical validation has an upper hand.

Mention the ways you use to introduce new updates to your team.

Well, I never enforce any new thing directly on my team. Whenever I come across any technology update, I get into it before introducing it among my team of directors. At SA, we have no constraints of predefined processes because technology keeps on changing.

Whenever there is a need to implement technological advancements, I facilitate a healthy discussion between our directors of different departments. I also define the accountability and responsibility of all the directors and project managers to keep their respective teams updated.

What’s your step to enter into wearable tech and IOT revolution?

We’ve already entered in these futuristic technologies. We are working on providing end-to-end IoT solutions to the clients. Right now, we are actively present in the prototyping of the IoT app and providing consultancy to our esteemed clients to get the most of this revolutionary technology. We aim at offering enterprise-grade solutions from devices to app development to implementing the IoT network in the business system.

Anything, you would like to say to our readers, upcoming entrepreneurs or Startup companies?

Well, I find the posts of App Story interesting. I am sure that readers can stay informed by reading the App Story blogs.

For entrepreneurs and startups, I wish them all success. They should always remember that there is no secret sauce for success. If you follow ethical ways and focus on your goals, you can achieve success for sure. Also, never expect to make money overnight. When you focus on raising funds without establishing your business, you may end up making a mess.
