Create POC to meet business requirements under guidance Use technology knowledge to analyse technology based on client's specific requirement analyse and understand existing implementations. Work on simple technology implementations (POC) under guidance guide the developers and enable them in the implementation of design into working software in the technology Use knowledge of Architecture Concepts and Principles to provide inputs to the practitioner towards building component solutions and deploy the solution as per the architecture under guidance Use knowledge of Design Patterns Tools and Principles to create low level design under guidance from the Architect for the given business requirements Review low level design created by team for maintainability (error handling alerting etc.) of design define technical checklists for design and coding Use knowledge of Software Development Process Tools & Techniques/Scrum tools to increase productivity and develop efficient code. Constantly check for reusability of codes design and develop complex assets and provide technical consultancy related to these areas Use knowledge of Project Management Tools and Techniques to provide inputs in project management activities (e.g. reporting reviewing documents audit compliance reports providing status). Raise concerns within own area of work in a timely manner and implement the same under guidance Use Project Governance Framework to facilitate communication with the right stakeholders and Project Metrics to help them understand their relevance in project; and to share inputs on project metrics with the relevant stakeholders for own area of work Use Estimation and Resource Planning knowledge to help estimate and plan resources for specific modules / small projects with detailed requirements in place Use Knowledge Management Tools & Techniques to participate in the knowledge management process (such as Project specific KT). Consume and contribute to the knowledge management repository Use knowledge of Technical Standards Documentation & Templates to understand and interpret the documents provided Use Requirement Gathering and Analysis knowledge to analyse requirements (functional/ non -functional) and functionality raise clarifications/ambiguities create requirement documents (such as traceability matrix bridge documents etc.) under supervision. Provide inputs/ create estimates and solutions (based on the size of the project) create design documents identify impacted areas based on the change requests understand the data and model the requirements based on requirements Use Solution Structuring knowledge to understand the proposed solution. Provide inputs to create draft proposals/ RFP (including effort estimation scheduling resource loading etc.)Knowledge Examples:Knowledge Examples Domain/ Industry Knowledge: Basic knowledge of standard business processes within the relevant industry vertical and customer business domain Technology Knowledge: Working knowledge of sub-portion in a technology area related to own area of work (e.g. Java/JEE 5+ Microsoft technologies or Mainframe/legacy); sub-set of frameworks (Struts JSF Hibernate Spring) etc. sufficient enough to implement end-to-end application related to own area of work; low level details such as data structures algorithms within one technology stack; configuration parameters for successful deployment within one technology stack Architecture Concepts and Principles: Basic knowledge of standard architectural principles models patterns (e.g. SOA N-Tier EDA etc.) and perspective (e.g. TOGAF Zachman etc) integration architecture including input and output components existing integration methodologies and topologies source and external system non functional requirements data architecture deployment architecture and architecture governance Design Patterns Tools and Principles: Working knowledge of design patterns principles patterns and tools Software Development Process Tools & Techniques: Specialized knowledge of SDLC process (Agile and Traditional) SDLC methodology programming principles best practices (refactoring code code package etc.) Project Management Tools and Techniques: Basic knowledge of: project management process (such as project scoping requirements management change management risk management quality assurance disaster management etc.) tools (MS Excel MPP Client specific time sheets capacity planning tools etc.) Project Management: Basic understanding of project governance structure awareness of basic project metrics like effort and defect quality metrics Estimation and Resource Planning: Working knowledge of estimation and resource planning techniques (e.g. TCP estimation model) UST specific estimation templates Knowledge Management Tools & Techniques Basic knowledge of industry knowledge management tools (such as portals wiki) UST and customer knowledge management tools techniques (such as workshops classroom training self-study application walkthrough and reverse KT) Technical Standards Documentation & Templates: Basic knowledge of various document templates and standards (such as business blueprint design documents and test specifications) Requirement Gathering and Analysis: Demonstrates working knowledge of requirements gathering for ( non functional) requirements analysis for functional and non functional requirement analysis tools (such as functional flow diagrams activity diagrams blueprint storyboard) techniques (business analysis process mapping etc.) and requirements management tools (e.g.MS Excel)
