Everyone is talking about mobile. Some e-commerce websites are venturing into it. Mobile commerce (also known as “m-commerce”) has immense potential, exhibiting a 86% growth rate and hitting $25 billion in 2012 (set to reach $86 billion by 2016, according to eMarketer).
Whether producing software for eCommerce, Travel, Banking or Security industries UX design plays a major role, however there are many things that are overlooked when designing an enterprise app. Due to the formal and business-focused purposes they serve, most people do not expect a great user experience (UX) from enterprise apps, particularly as they would in a consumer-facing application. However, there is no reason why they should not. In fact, in many ways, they have every right to expect a superior UX and designers have fewer excuses for not getting it right.
In my own experience I’ve seen that by focusing on the utility of the product, design elements are often brought in towards the end of the development process.

Also it gives you a sense of adulthood and responsibility.

Similarly to a driving license getting your travel documents ready is very important as you will never know where in the world your next opportunity will arise. You are able to save some money on the processing fees as you can go ahead with the lower rate normal procedure and you will have your passport mailed to you in 10 working days if you submit the documents right.

Many successful start-ups and multinational corporations from U.S. / Europe and Oceania are investing in millions of rupees on the talent pool that is gathered around the city of Colombo in Sri lanka and are harvesting thousands of man hours worth billions of dollars every year.
Yes! it is true that these employees are highly paid more than the average guy who works for the government or the local private sector. but are they really happy? are they too comfortable and are afraid of change? There seems to be a lack of drive and passion towards what they do.
