Tulasi's Story On IT's Role In The Company

As a Java Application developer, I work on developing applications and maintaining them. Thus I can say I work closely with the business, Principal Advisors and Marketers, clients and employees of The Principal as the applications we develop make their job easier and better.

At The Principal we’ve established a culture where IT is much embedded with our businesses. I feel that IT as a community is a winning team in contributing to our organization goals and aligning ourselves to the business needs. I am glad that I am part of this winning IT team. In many companies, IT is a second thought or looked on as an expense. At The Principal, technology is completely embedded in the businesses. The company’s business leaders see the value that IT brings to the table.
