Expert sees bright future for software sector
Bangladesh’s software development industry has a bright future as a good number of talented IT graduates are now entering into the industry every year, remarked an IT expert of an US-based software outsourcing company.
Presenting the keynote paper at a seminar, Samuel D Bretzfield, managing director of bGlobal Interactive Ltd, said adequate IT infrastructures and smooth supply of utilities have become inevitable to give a further boost to the booming software development sector.
bGlogal Interactive (www.bglobalsourcing.com) organized the seminar styled “SQABD Lighting Talks-4″ at a city hotel.
A good number of software development professionals of the country shared their views on new trends and common themes in the software development sector of the country.
Coordinator of SQABD Sazzadul Hakim moderated the seminar while Director of bGlobal Mishal Karim was also present, among others.
Bretzfield gave an overview of IT business highlighting product launching, development and working with clients across the world in the web-development and web-application industry.
He said Bangladesh has been observing a steady 20 percent yearly increase in the number of English Language Students, which would help compete in the world market.
Comparing Bangladesh with India in terms of IT expansion, Bretzfield said the earlier has lagged 10 years behind as India has adopted the internet vigorously and Bangladesh’s proficiency in English Language is not as good as India.
He, however, put forward a set of recommendations including introduction of better curriculums in IT graduation providers with special focus on the English language, redundant backbone, better project management and understanding of customer needs.
bGlobal Interactive has increasingly become involved in projects locally to help stimulate the IT sector of Bangladesh.
