My name is Smith Naik and I am Solution Architect in the Emerging Technologies Team (Dewith key focus around GADO solution.
I started my career with Infosys in 2000 as Test Engineer which is an Indian multinational provider of business consulting, information technology, software engineering and outsourcing services. After a 3 years with Infosys , I moved over to IBM and joined Rational Unit
Rational had just been taken over by IBM , and it was small company trying to get itself aligned to Big Blue. I worked in Test Domain in various product teams from starting with Rational Rose , graduating to Rational Software Architect , Rational Application Developer .
In 2009 , I joined Rational Focal Point Team as Test Manager . Focal Point was part of Telelogic Suite of products which IBM had acquired and was integrated with Rational Business Unit.My move there was an ‘cross pollination’ attempt , to help Telelogic integrate with IBM processes and it worked well with team adopting Rational Team Concert , Rational Quality Manager , Rational Functional Tester and whole gamut of IBM processes.
During the period I also tried my hands on Release Management as extended responsibility and learnt quite a lot of things which go behind the scenes to make a Product Release available.
In August 2013 , I moved to client facing role with the newly formed Emerging Technologies Team in DevOps area with key focus on Continuous Business Planning and Governance of Application Development Outsourcing (GADO) .
