SAS Tech is the software house which is concentrating on Pakistani projects
specially to participate in development of Pakistan thus enhancing IT value and strength in country.
The Pakistani IT & ITES industry today has an impressive story to tell. Much like the successful startup that one would have not heard of a few years ago but is all of a sudden the talk of the town. The Pakistan IT and ITES industry has started to appear on the radar of firms like Gartner and IDC and in reports by AT Kearny and the World Bank. It is a transformed industry growing exponentially and creating a stir. 1.1 Estimated Size of IT Industry From its nascent beginnings in the late 1980s, the industry has successfully arrived to a point where its value proposition has been validated over and over again. The largest members are grossing 15-25 million dollars in revenues, and receiving 100 million dollar valuations. Most tech companies are growing in excess of 30% a year annually. The industry as a whole is doing over 2 billion dollars a year in revenue, up from less than a billion dollars a few years ago. 1.2 Software & Services Sector with 39% Growth for 2007 – 08 About half of this growth is coming from foreign, software and high end services projects. IBM, Cisco and Microsoft are expanding Pakistan operations aggressively while several startups are now backed by VCs such as e-Planet Ventures, Motorola, and Adobe. 1.3 Employment of Professionals by 41% Growth Sectors and countries have achieved in 15-20 years, Pakistan’s technology scene is poised to achieve in less than a decade.
Putting it all together, the Pakistani Technology industry is very different from what it was in the early 1990’s. From 4 founding companies in 1994, PASHA’s current membership exceeds 370. From 4,619 full-time employees in 2004, current employment is at 12,232 and rising. The number of QA Professionals has doubled in the last 3 years and 20% of those employed in the sector are foreign qualified. Fast becoming a hub of high performance business, the questions now asked are if growth this year will be 28% or 50%, if there will be enough skilled HR to staff demand, if there will be enough office space available next year.
2-The Industry at Glance
SAS Tech 3-Main Idea
Our main idea is to open a software house in Karachi which would be the biggest software house in the Pakistan. We will have mainly two departments.
3.1 Prospecting Projects Supporting ANR (Afghan National Refugee): We will support ANR project in collaboration with NADRA by using SQL, Oracle Data Base for Institutions Basically concentrating on the projects and solutions for institutions like Educational , Medical and Business Growing Institutes.
SAS Tech 4-Technical Analysis:
4.1 Labor . A professional software house normally consists of at least three dedicated sub-teams :
business analysts who define the business needs of the market software designers/programmers who creates the technical specification and next do a coding software testers who are responsible for the whole process of quality management
each person has full knowledge about the full production cycle people are doing various tasks what makes especially young people excited about their work there is a very good possibility to manage the work load especially in crisis situations like "all hands on pump"
4.2 Location and Size: Our software house will be situated in main SADDAR area of Karachi. Size of our software house would be approximately 2 acre. 4.3 Machineries and technology We need to install high quality machinery. For this purpose we will import our computers from U.S market and their technical people will install the computers and networking. 4.4 Training For better and efficient use of the imported machinery we will send our experiences programmers to U.S for training. 4.5 Software House capacity: We will arrange 24-hours open at our software house and employees will have morning and night shifts. So we can increase the production capacity of our software house and ultimately more people will get employment. 4.6 Input Constraints
Biggest constraint is load shedding. For this purpose we will arrange generators. Generators will increase our cost but it will increase our results accordingly. 4.7 Methodologies Software house may use a number of various methodologies to produce the code. These can include:
the waterfall model, including project management methodologies like PRINCE2 or PMBoK agile software development, such as Extreme Programming and SCRUM
There are also some methodologies which combine both, such as the spiral model, RUP or MSF.
4.8 Projects in Controlled Environments 10
We will mainly follow PRINCE2. (Projects in Controlled Environments)
