It has a century long history of dedicated work towards making women educated and self-reliant. It's a 124-years-old parent body, which has been committed to “Empowerment of Women through Education”. It was established in 1896 by the great visionary and social worker Bharat Ratna Maharshi Dhondo Keshav Karve to provide shelter to destitute women. The entire AST India team came together and contributed items of daily use, games, books & stationery items, etc to MKSSS. They spent half day at the institution .Indeed, a very special way to celebrate the spirit of womanhood!

  • AST Welcomes Top Leadership of a World’s Largest Member-based Physician Organization in India On Friday, February 28, AST’s team in Pune welcomed an esteemed delegation from the College of American Pathologists (CAP) at their Pune facility. CAP was represented by Greg Gleason (CIO and VP, Information Services), Shannon Hoekstra (Director, Infrastructure & Operations), Akshay Patel (Director, Tech Innovation) and Kurt Schmidt (Director, Architecture & IS Support Services). CAP has been a respected client of AST for over 11 years, and multiple teams are currently working together as one to successfully deliver challenging projects across multiple pillars. During this trip they visited TCS, Infosys and Deloitte; and the only way to counter the competition was to give them a very personal experience, right from them coming out of the Airplane. For CAP, seeing AST’s capabilities and team’s competency around Testing, AI/ML, Automation, BOT, Security, AWS, DevOps etcs were beyond their expectations. Many thanks to the CAP Leadership for the visit at our Pune office !

Applications Software Technology – Why Work With Us?


Applications Software Technology LLC (AST) was founded in 1995 as a specialized Oracle E-Business Suite systems integrator with the objective of helping customers realize the full potential of their investment in Oracle Applications. It was based on the premise that the success of an enterprise wide system implementation depended on an equal measure of specialization, investment in employees, software expertise, and an in-depth understanding of the industries we serve and a client's unique business processes.

Over the course of our corporate history, AST has successfully built upon our long‐standing, core Oracle E‐Business Suite practice in concert with Oracle’s acquisitions and technology evolution to include award‐winning and recognized non‐ERP practice areas: Oracle Business Intelligence (BI), Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management (EPM), Oracle Middleware, Oracle Service‐Oriented Architecture (SOA), Customer Relationship Management (CRM), and Oracle Cloud Services.

We specialize in managing transformative Oracle projects and consistently deliver consulting services of the highest quality. As a result AST is recognized as a premier systems integrator and a go-to partner for Oracle.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Applications Software Technology (Pune) in February 2020.

    Interview

    The interview got scheduled over skype. The person who is taking interview is Unprofessional. He did not even share his video, but asked me to keep the video!!!!!! Really?
    More than an Experienced Interview he is more interested in Fill in the blank questions types. Even if you answer the question and tells the approaches you got, he does not accept until the approach he knows!!!! But trust me he just sucks in updating his knowledge. Never a single question about Experience or Implementations.

    After 15min of the interview, Even some of the questions he asked does not even makes sense. I got so frustated with his behavior, such that I said it right away that it does not make sense in the interview.

    I have couple of innovations wrt to the technology I interviewed and literally Zero questions or no discussion about it. They never looks the resume. I am afraid to work in the team with him! lol

    If you are applying for this AST Corp, prepare for fill in blank answers and they never ask single question about your exp or project or the projects implemented or any innovations!!
