GitHub with a mission to build a global platform for developer collaboration, the company is focusing on making GitHubaccessible to as many people as possible. It is fully aware that the developers rely on the company to do their jobs, to work on personal projects, and as a way to give back to the broader global community on projects and issues they care about. It believes that every developer should have access to GitHub, the company has announced its features free for everyone. In a chat with VARINDIA, Maneesh Sharma, Country Manager, GitHub India shares his speculations for start-ups in India.
Commenting on the free features for everyone, Maneesh Sharma says, “With our announcement of making GitHub completely free for developers and teams, we hope to get developers in India to accelerate great innovation. This will also foster stronger collaboration and an ever growing open source contribution back to the community, driving innovation and growth for all. We have technology led startups across the country with developers not only collaborating amongst themselves, but also leveraging code from a lot of open source projects. The vibrant startup and research community in India will now get access to great technology that they can use to advance their work.”
ORIGINATING GROWTH FROM THE START-UP
Organizations across segments and industries in India are going through a fundamental shift which will reshape the business landscape. Digital native companies are disrupting industries and dominating customer demands. These have created a sense of urgency in traditional industries and organizations to transform and embrace digital. Organisations of all sizes, across all industries are looking at technology to differentiate themselves, stay relevant and keep pace with customer demand.
Maneesh feels, “The first phase for organizations was mostly around moving existing workloads from on-premise systems to the cloud, followed by the second phase of accelerated adoption of SaaS platforms for use across departments like HR, Finance, Sales, Marketing and many others. Now, to deliver differentiated customer experiences organizations are creating born-digital and born-in-the-cloud applications. This necessitates true code-to-cloud requirements for developer communities not only in startups but also enterprises as well. The very fact that we GitHub showed significant growth in usage over the last year in India demonstrates the shift to cloud based developer platforms.”
FOR CHANNEL EMPOWERMENT
Partners have always been core to GitHub’s growth in India. Sharing about the partners Maneesh says, “We’ve had many of our partners help our customers to be successful with GitHub over the last few years. Our partners DevTools, Amrut Software and Canarys Automation are some of the partners that have been very active in the India market for GitHub.
As we accelerate our go-to-market in India, we are doubling down on our partner strategy. We’ve onboard reseller partners as well as service partners across India to help us deliver quicker value to customers. Our partners work closely with customers in consulting on DevOps strategies, helping setup secure coding best practices as well as helping automate the entire CI/CD setup.”
FOR THE DEVELOPERS
GitHub fosters an open ecosystem for developers in all industries and for all platforms. “We’re continuing to build great products and are committed to supporting developers in their choice of any language, license, tool, platform, or cloud. This freedom of choice for developers to plug-in their preferred tools/frameworks helps them achieve more at every stage of their development lifecycle. We also have an open and vibrant marketplace of integrations to support our developers with partners across categories like IDEs, APIs, Project Management, Security, Testing, Dependencies as well as Deployments to hybrid cloud environments.”, states Maneesh.
According to Maneesh, India is a key market for GitHub and, by establishing their presence in the country, they are taking some exciting steps forward to enable and accelerate this community to thrive even further.
“Our goal is to support developers, students, and open source maintainers, as well as to listen, learn, and address the needs of our users and customers.We are working to support our Community and Commerce priorities, and build a stronger presence of GitHub in the country,” concludes Maneesh.
