Balancing talent & technology at right cost
Byju Joseph, CTO, Future Generali Life Insurance, discusses key issues associated with inhouse software development:

Ravi Lalwani: What are the commonly used programming and productivity tools used in Future Generali Life Insurance?

Byju Joseph: We use Visual Studio and open tools to create and deploy modern web applications. Development for the web is by using ASP.NET, Node. js, Python, JavaScript, Angular, jQuery, Bootstrap, Azure, Vision AI, Android Studio, Flutter, VS Code, Ionic, SQLite Manager, Notepad ++, Git, Java SDK, Android SDK, JetBrains, Sourcetree, etc.

What new programming tools and programming productivity tools are you looking to adopt to empower digital transformation?

Migration to Visual Studio Code enables us deep remote development and helps to connect to a container running a different OS (build, debug, test, and deploy software containers). In addition, we will be migrating from the .NET Framework to .NET Core. Moving code to .NET 5 is not only about supporting future Windows releases, we see it as an opportunity to deliver it to many more platforms and users.

How do you prioritize between better technology vs talent availability vs cost vs other factors?
