Google, the search giant has taken an initiative a to help the Indian mobile app development market to enhance performance. Google India and India’s National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) has partnered to carry out a training campaign for the Android app developers in India. The aim of this action is to help the outsourcing firms in the country that have failed to make a good impact in the mobile app development field globally.
According to the stats, Indian big IT outsourcing companies have built a $117 billion market by outsourcing web application for the global market in last three decades. However, the mobile app technology and the exponential increment in demands of mobile apps pushed up the quick delivery with low-cost development factor in which Indian Market doesn't score well. Moreover, Indian mobile app development market is even smaller than Vietnam and Turkey according to the latest survey.
According to the latest Google news, the Android owner will conduct a Developing Android App course for effective and cost-friendly development of Android apps. Every participate needs to go under the 100 hours of the training session to understand and learn some basic android app development techniques for catching up with the global market. However, it is still unclear which outsourcing firms are participating in training. “Large outsourcing companies have been focused on a different part of the stack and that has been extremely lucrative. But, I think it is true that we don’t see mobile development happening as an offshore outsourcing industry in India”, said William Florance, head of university programs, developer training at Google.
India’s developer community comprises 2 million to 4 million of skilled developers, but only 9 percent out of them deal with mobile app development. This is the reason why Indian market is struggling in the mobile app technology sector globally, which has become multi-billion dollar business since last decade. According to IMaCS, a management consulting branch of rating firm ICRA, If India wants to keep up its growth rate in the global market it needs to have 240 million trained IT professionals by 2022.
This is not the first time Google is helping the Indian mobile app market to cope up with the global app market. Recently, Google India has also launched a program “Made in India” Initiative to help the Indian Android mobile app developers in building the Play Store Friendly Android apps.
