Let’s start off by learning a bit more about your life prior to Pega. Where are you from originally and what is your educational background?
I was born and raised in Mandvi, an Indian city in the state of Gujarat. I completed my Master of Computer Application from the University of Pune. Despite being hard-core developer, I was hired as a tester at a campus placement interview. I never thought of becoming a Pega developer until I was introduced to it and I realized how fast it is to develop an application using Pega PRPC.
What motivated you to learn how to use Pega?
It was when I first started at Zensar that I came across this powerful tool. I was fascinated by how it enables us to build software without writing thousands of lines of code. My motivation behind learning Pega was features like Low-Code App Development, Decision Management and Robotic Automation.

Going from Project Trainee to becoming a Senior Associate at one of the top MNC’s in India in such a short period of time is something like a dream come true for me. During this journey, I have earned Pega CSA and CSSA certifications through Pega Academy. With each certificate, more and more doors are opening for me and bringing along opportunities to deliver great value and accomplish my career goals.

I have witnessed many legacy systems getting migrated to Pega because of its simplicity and powerfulness. Pega is enabling projects to be agile and fast on the front-end and stable and reliable on the back-end. That’s why business users are becoming more and more confident in Pega’s agility.
