The various factors contributing to the exponential growth of software development companies in India is the country’s proficiency in technical field, fluency in English, quick turnaround time, experienced and reliable professionals and the substantially lower wages for high quality work. As a result, there has been a proliferation of educational institutions and universities proffering specialized IT education. Over the years, software development companies in India have built an unassailable reputation in the international markets.

Many foreign firms are outsourcing various technical works to software development companies in India including banking solutions, supply chain management, human resource development,legal requirements and e commerce solutions. A huge talent pool of software developers available in India gives her the edge over other countries in software development. India is considered the offshore destination of major global high-tech firms like HP, IBM, Intel, AMD, Microsoft, Oracle Corporation, Cisco, SAP, BEA, etc. This has led to large scale employment opportunities to software professionals in the IT industry in India.

The demand for software jobs within India is also rising rapidly.

In most companies, software developers are involved in the process of the development of software products by writing the code, interacting with content providers, graphics creators, and programmers to produce the end product.
An employer or software company would invariably prefer a software developer to hold an engineering degree in IT or computers. A Master’s in degree in Computer Applications (MCA) is also widely favored. The salary of a software developer always depends upon the experience and the educational qualification of an employee.
