For many years in the IT services business, there was a reasonable amount of demarcation in project execution using technology skills such as Mainframes, Client Server, Data Warehousing, Business Intelligence, and ERP. Projects were getting executed in silos for every Line of Business (LoB) within an enterprise.
However in today’s digital world, there has been a huge disruption of the business model. Boundaries within the businesses are getting blur. For instance, retailers are entering into banking space to enable quick lending, sports companies are entering into consumer wellness, and mobile companies are entering into payments. Enterprises have restructured themselves to capitalize on the synergies within various lines of businesses. Hence, many digital projects need multiple technically-skilled professionals to join hands to deliver these business driven projects.
