The demand for technology skills among captives or global development centers in India increased by 22% in the second half of last fiscal year, according to a study from a staffing and business solutions firm. Between October 2020 and March 2021, demand for roles like IT security and full-stack developers increased by 166 percent and 110 percent, respectively, according to the staffing firm.
Banking and financial services, technology services and consulting, as well as auto and engineering, have all contributed significantly to captive center demand. According to Quess, demand for technology platforms such as Salesforce, SAP HANA, and ServiceNow has increased.
Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Chenna, Mumbai, and Pune, according to the staffing firm, saw the most demand growth.

These patterns demonstrate how captives and large companies are changing their focus areas as they develop and transform their technology capabilities,” said Vijay Sivaram, CEO of Quess IT Staffing. “In this new age of work, companies are constantly pursuing candidates who are flexible, imaginative, and skilled,” he added.
