In the digital era, being an IT project manager is an essential component across a countless number of industries and project types. At Amzur Technologies, Inc., the project managers are both seeded and trained internally or sourced with our pre-screening service and then qualified to hire.
Satya Tennetti is one of these project managers.
His day-to-day tasks include:
- Meeting with the stakeholders to ensure they have all the information they need to do their part in the project.
- Keeping a running tab of expenses and continually making sure the project is not running over its pre-planned budget.
- Keeping a running tab of resource-hours expended and making sure the project is adhering to its predicted scope.
- Looking over each completed task to make sure it fits the project’s needs and initiating revisions if it does not.
- Continually checking the progress against the project’s objectives and making sure it hasn’t veered off track.
- Managing conflicts between various stakeholders and keeping motivation levels high.
Tennetti has managed extended teams working in the pharma, insurance, and healthcare industries. He finds these projects extremely challenging but rewarding as there could be various parameters to run across business classes and units that could shape an organization in healthcare. He says that there has been an increase in automation across the board. If we look at the healthcare industry, we will see that the increase in aging populations with chronic conditions, the monopoly by healthcare providers, and the development of newer innovative and complex therapeutics are major contributors to higher healthcare costs. We can then conclude that the rise in IT projects is only normal to drive the market and reach the decision-makers faster through various electronic and online channels.
Tennetti oversees various delivery model placements in different projects. He has also stepped up and become the account manager who communicated with the clients on behalf of Amzur. For the past few years, he has come to observe that there are certain factors affecting management of projects in different situations where the competence of project leadership is one of the key factors. Amzur’s organizational culture and Tennetti’s leadership are both linked to his projects’ performance.
Amzur’s Operations team assembles a team of software engineers, Scrum Masters, and QA specialists. Satya also believes that each talent delivery model could benefit from a business analyst to maximize the efficiency of the teams. Satya says that most companies may have an internal IT team that are tasked to arrange software development, but he has seen that using just internal teams (on niche and R&D driven technology projects) costs heavily on daily operations in addition to halting claims services and underwriting processes.
“Whether your development is open-ended or fixed-term, we can build the team you need,” Tennetti says. He adds that the client can retain total team control while taking advantage of the scalability and reduced administration.
Especially today, the availability of highly-skilled developers in the U.S. labor market is a great concern. The companies in the healthcare industry verticals cannot get the senior competencies they need to drive the competitive edge by automating processes, using insurtech tools, and optimizing the time-to-market, so they choose U.S. companies with local focus but also global reach for a solution.
