Rajat Khare, a software architect for Intuit, had the chance to participate in several projects that focused on developing GraphQL-based experiences and services. He shared his experiences with GraphQL and how Intuit’s QuickBooks product has adopted it at scale.
Sundar from Intuit states by considering India’s past, we may comprehend this. The past ten years have been exciting for India, but we’ve employed established, fundamental technology to address issues. India’s focus during the coming ten years will be on setting the pace in developing the world’s fundamental technologies.
We have the skills to construct these building blocks, and as we’ve observed over the past few years, the public of India is more than eager to quickly adopt cutting-edge and new technologies like Web3.
We have a unique opportunity to influence the future of the technology industry by, for example, finding those killer Web3 apps that everyone is looking for, especially given how readily solutions can be scaled up here. The future? Maybe the Intuit India team will be the ones to create those apps.
India to aid in the development of that cutting-edge foundational technology
The largest obstacle, in my opinion, is the continuing disconnect between knowledge and application. Even though schools and universities have advanced significantly since my time, they can still only educate you so much about using the technology you are studying.
Although you are encouraged to look for issues that AI can resolve, you learn about AI. Instead, you should learn to identify problems and then use the most effective techniques to resolve them. AI is only one of these tools.
I believe businesses like Intuit can close that gap. We have adopted new methodologies like CDI (Customer-Driven Innovation) and D4D (Design for Delight), where engineers are encouraged to first focus on customer needs before creating distinctive, long-lasting solutions while utilising data, AI, and other tools to do so. This is due to our unique culture of innovation and experimentation. Engineers are urged to fail quickly and learn more quickly.
We can very easily get to the next stage of India’s development where we might maybe lead the world in developing new, fundamental technologies with help from educational institutions, skill-up from enterprises like us, and government support. We are in a great position to take advantage of this fantastic opportunity that has presented itself.
Upcoming ten years for Intuit!
We’re concentrating on what we internally refer to as Big Bets for the next 5–10 years. Every action we take serves these Big Bets. From both a customer and business standpoint, the following are the top five priorities:
Revolutionize speed to benefit: By utilising AI and consumer insights, we can put more money in our client’s pockets, reduce friction, and give them confidence whenever they use our products and services. Here, we’ll leverage data and AI to streamline and accelerate our interactions with customers so that we can take care of them more swiftly and expertly.
A world where AI and experts can collaborate to provide the experience our clients require is one in which individuals can be connected to professionals. These could be professionals who aid both individuals and small enterprises and boost their confidence, such as tax or payroll experts.
Making wise financial decisions: Making wise financial decisions involves addressing the major fundamental reasons for struggling to make ends meet, including bad financial practices, a lack of emergency reserves, and an abundance of high-interest debt. We strive to make it easier for customers to get financial knowledge and guidance, choose the best financial solutions, and save more money.
Be the hub of small business growth: As companies become omni-channel and go online, we want to be able to assist them in doing so. Mid-market disruption for small enterprises: As small organisations expand, their needs alter. Mid-market companies are forced to spend for an enterprise-class solution with more capabilities than they actually want because of their desire for greater personalisation and customisation. With our own appealing offers, we’re assisting them in expanding and disrupting the market.
