NIIT’s StackRoute product offering covers theentire gamut of an IT organization’s digital transformation skill needs by:
Is your IT workforce ahead of the game?
In today’s world of continuously evolving disruptive technologies, your IT workforce needs to be one step ahead of the game. Some of the challenges we see in the market are:
There is a lack of day one job ready graduates with project-ready digital skills
Employers from the IT industry still need to invest between 6-9 months of on-the-job training before an entry-level new hire is productive.
There is a critical need for entry-level new hires with project-ready digital skills.
Customer expectations and requirements are changing
The expectation is changing to “Ownership of Value”, “Outcome based models”, and a “Product-centric mindset”.
Simultaneously, requirements definition and articulation is making a shift from “customer” to “IT service provider”.
The existing IT workforce need significant reskilling
Existing IT professionals need significant reskilling to successfully execute any digital projects today.
They must have exposure to building responsive web pages, building independent and rich front-end client applications, developing micro-services, working with multiple databases, using appropriate test automation.
How Does StackRoute Help?
StackRoute programs permit learners to take on more challenging learning goals that truly reflect the demands of live projects – thereby saving the total time and cost incurred by their organizations in getting them to be fully project-ready and productive on Day One.
As consumers change digital behaviors faster than companies can adapt, our clients look to Wipro to provide agility, speed and scale to their digital transformation efforts. For us, building the right mix of people with the right skills is critical. In particular, we look for Pi-Shaped people who can work on multiple platforms, interface with design colleagues and drive digital innovation. NIIT has been a key partner for us as our business grows and the digital transformation needs of our customers evolve.

1 An NIIT incubated venture established in 2015 to enable enterprise-wide digital transformation.
2 A series of practitioner-led programming, quality-engineering, data-science and digital architecture boot camps.
3 Immersive outcome-oriented experiences backed by mastery learning and individual tutoring that deliver business relevant outcomes.
4 StackRoute graduates stand-out in terms of their confidence, problem-solving ability and in-depth knowledge and understanding of technology.
We offer a product engineering based immersive program on different full stack technologies divided into the following two parts:
In the first part of the program, participants work individually to learn programming languages and the basic elements of a full stack program
In the second part of the program, participants are grouped into teams of six to eight people to develop, test, and deploy a version of a technology product
The boot strap weeks
Get your engineering environment up
Working in teams
Automation and Version Control
No release without test coverage
A complete experience
In-depth completion of functionality
What makes us different from boot camps:
Building and releasing a real product with tough deadlines and engineering practices transforms hesitant developers to confident developers who are ready for challenges.
Led by practitioners, participants learn to be full-stackers by apprenticeship. Mentors review every line of code and provide a powerful learning experience that stays with participants for a long time.
OPEN ENDED AND EXPLORATORY RATHER THAN PRESCRIPTIVE
We engage with new and unsolved problems unlike other training programs where canned and pre-solved exercises are recycled. From building app-fabrics, micro-services, real-time stream handling to a graph-based system, we take tech to a different level.
The program design mandates conceptual topics that learners can study on their own through a set of videos. These are supplemented by in-classroom discussions and design jams. Learners spend 70% of their time on actual development related activities. The StackRoute® development environment mandates the use of TDD and continuous integration.
Non-trivial work done by our graduates
A self-healing, dynamic scaling AppFabric for micro-services
Distributed anomaly detection on streamed time-series data
Semantic Search technology that identifies intent in documents. Use it for instance to “get an introductory code example of Oauth with AngularJS”
Ontology based matching of capabilities in resumes with intent in job description
Real-time collaborative messaging between people and Bots
Bots that use ontologies and NLP to answer programming related questions
Real-time Jeopardy style multiplayer quizzing
Semantically accurate multiple-choice question generation using Wiki data
For one of the top tier large IT organizations in India, we created over 800 full stack product engineers for digital engagements through StackRoute Immersive programs.
At least 50% improvement in productivity
Almost all participants are deployed in projects and most work in client facing roles
Over 40 resources are working closely with client teams at their locations with increased revenue
Reduced the “Time-to-billability” by 30% or more
Reduced the bench time by 1-2 months per resource. This increases billing opportunities for IT firms which they would otherwise lose
due to bench time
Estimated 20% reduction in training cost
For another top tier large IT organization in India, StackRoute combined its FSD assessment methodology and FSD programs to design an accelerated path to FSD transformation for their experienced developers.
Unique multi-stage-based assessment model that helps define the Full Stack Development roadmap for each learner
Attend FSD programs to fill in the gaps per assessment
Over 250 have graduated and are productive in their new roles in digital projects
Transformation with minimal or no billing loss to IT firms
