MarTechMarketing technology, or MarTech, is the term used to describe the software and tools that marketers use to plan campaigns, execute them, and measure their success. Marketing technology tools make it possible for a company to streamline and automate marketing processes, collect and analyse data, and engage with its target audience in multiple ways. Through the continuous analysis that can help informed decision-making, MarTech has made marketing a far more cost-effective function.
Sales & ServicesSales and services, as a vital pivot of the economy has been making preponderant contribution to national GDPs world-wide. Accordingly, this segment is expected to have a continued need of specialized talent who are geared up to serve different sectors, consistent with complexity introduced by emergence of new tech dependent sectors such as quick service ecommerce, a large & diverse customer base, & higher customer expectations, and newer channels of sales and service that go beyond the physical environment.
FinTechFinancial Technology (FinTech) has its origins in the 2008 Global Financial Crises where the Financial Markets collapsed, traditional banks and financial institutions came under heavy regulation and many white collar finance jobs were lost. The same talent created startups using disruptive technologies that made Banking far more economical to the masses – basically the digitalization of all processes like Commercial (SMB) Lending, P2P Lending, Raising Capital (Investment Funds, Robo advisory firms, even ICOs), Crowdfunding, Payments, Insurtech and RegTech to redefine and remove the inefficiencies that have prevailed in the past. In China, the technology company driven entry into financial services is called TechFins and originate from BAT (Baidu, Ant Group and Tencent) and GAFA (Google, Apple, Facebook/Whatsapp and Amazon) in USA while the Indian FinTech market is microfinance led using Aadhaar Pay technology for authentication and UPI-based micro payments.
Capital MarketsThe presence of an active capital market is a huge boost to economic growth. Significant growth is witnessed in the Indian capital in terms of value and volume of transactions. Traditional roles in Capital Market focused on analysis which involved studying financial statements, focusing on industry trends, economic data, and global trends to make decisions. There is a shift in investment firms to depend on data-driven decisions, trying to combine fundamental investing with quantitative models popularly referred to as Algo and Quant trading. Algo trading is the process of using a computer program to follow a set of instructions for place a trade to generate profits at a high frequency which is beyond the capacity of a human trader. The strategies developed are based on a set of pre-defined rules and are based on timing, price or quantity, or a model. Algo trading makes markets more liquid and makes trading more systematic by ruling out emotional human biases.
