Becoming Subject Matter Experts

Watch Programmers' Week 2021 Tech Talk, “SME leading in tech and culture”

This September, Cognizant Softvision went beyond with our 7th-annual, week-long event dedicated to developers and software engineers from around the world. Programmers’ Week 2021 was filled with inspiring keynotes, specially-curated tech talks and discussions, all focusing on professional development, training, industry knowledge and trending technologies. 

Romualdo Lanzon and Emiliano Gonzalez, Cognizant Softvision software architects in the .Net community took to the Programmers’ Week virtual stage to share their experience with the subject matter expert (SME) program they led to help increase new and current Softvisioners’ skills. 

In their talk, Romualdo and Emiliano discussed:

  • Cognizant Softvision’s approach to digital transformation
  • Why the SME program was launched
  • The importance of providing a positive, encouraging and collaborative environment
  • Upskilling, re-skilling and expert skilling 
  • The benefits of the SME program

Romualdo revealed the main idea for the SME program journey. “We focus on the process of learning. We do not try to cover all the technologies… the idea is, you get the tools here and from here, you are part of the pod model.”
