#48: PPO Chronicles- Senthilkumar K, Capgemini

Senthil completed his graduation in Btech. in Electronics and Communication. Later he worked with Accenture for threeyears as an ETL developer. Later, he joined SCMHRD in the Business Analytics batch of 2020-22.

Senthil interned at Capgemini. During his internship, he worked on two projects. His project involved writing a white paper on the Digital disruption in the Roadside assistance industry and creating a group of concepts for peer to peer insurance leveraging blockchain smart contracts. The first project involved conducting extensive research on understanding the existing scenario for the Roadside assistance industry and then providing solutions and practices to improve the process. The second project was about creating a proof of concepts that involved developing a look and feel of a mobile application for a peer to peer insurance project that would use BlockChain smart contract. He had to create a framework and develop the UI and its experience of how the application would look and feel in the project in the End Product.

Senthil says his overall experience was wonderful; the online internship was smooth from onboarding to the final presentation. He had immense support from his mentor, for which he is thankful. He had sessions with the Capgemini leadership, which helped improve his soft skills and domain knowledge. He is grateful to the Alumni at Capgemini, who were extremely helpful in resolving his queries. 

Senthil believes that his previous work-ex helped him approach a problem statement and identify a Business angle to it. He believes that a successful project is about a team effort, and his previous work-ex inculcated in him the right people skills, which helped him get an edge over others. 

Senthil’s success mantra is dividing the problem into threeparts. First, identify the business objective the reason to pursue that project. Second the identification of your role and responsibility in the project. Lastly, the end outcome of the problem, visualization of the same. To put it simply, purpose, role and responsibility and visualization of the result. He suggests revising the strategies as per the problem if needed

His suggestion to juniors to crack the PPO is to keep things simple and not overcomplicate the problem. He says learning and skills are essential, but it’s equally important to solve business problems. He also suggests reaching out to alumni and other people who can help you gain more insights helping you reach the find solution faster.

He says it was a fun-filled internship that helped him understand new domains and learn about them.
