I have known Asif Hussain for almost 2 years and I found him to be goal oriented, hardworking, team player and very skilled. He has strong IT management skills and proven ability to manage multiple projects concurrently. His knowledge of the products he works with, his focus on timelines and dedication to delivering quality solutions are commendable.

One of the best things about Asif Hussain is that he interacts with the team at their knowledge-level which helps him to communicate the concepts and requirement better and get the job done effectively. It was a pleasure to work with Asif Hussain and I highly recommend him.

I have known Asif Hussain on two fronts. First as a fellow student in MBA program at IOBM and then as a colleague at Royal Cyber, Inc. At IOBM, I found him extremely dynamic person in quest of the actual concepts and real knowledge rather than the general trend of going after grades. As luck would have it, after 3 years of completing the degree, we end up in the same office (Royal Cyber, Inc) as well. Now, in his own playground of IT, I have discovered even more dynamic person who is good at many aspects that are generally considered contradictory. He is very sound technical person and knows the coding, architectures, HTMLs, CSS, etc, insider out. At the same time, he analyzes the business and understand domains like a True Business Analyst with amazing writing skills to put the understanding in writing in various artifacts. He is an excellent trainer both in the traditional board & marker based and online mediums. He has exceptional presentation skills and can speak for hours despite of having little material available. He has admirable communication skills and knows the difference between Formal and Casual conversations and apply it according to the situation. I have seen clients fighting to have him on their project. As an IT professional myself, I can tell you that's the best form of compliment one can get.

Its a pleasure working with him in the same company, in the same department. I really wish, I can learn something from him during my tenure.

Best of luck Asif, for your future endeavors. Keep the good work going.

I found asif a confident person; he has extra ordinary inter personal skills. At the time of decision making in complex projects, he’ll always play an important role as a good decision maker. He is always trying to learn new tools and technologies, I also have learned a lot of things from him, He believes on transfer of knowledge to others. Asif is always focused on his professional aims and is dedicated towards his work. He is very soft spoken with his colleague & he has a good sense of humor as well.

To graduate to a managerial position having joined as Senior Business Analyst within short span of time speak volumes of this guy's talent. He is very detail-oriented, insightful person and uses his communication skills to perfection when dealing with clients. He shares very good rapport with all of his colleagues and never hesitates to seek advice/solutions from anyone, be it a senior or a junior. Undoubtedly he is a great asset to our company.

There are mainly two kinds of people you work with. One who has a certain expertise. And the ones who besides being an expert in their domain also can take up a new challenge and get it done.

Asif in simple words is a problem solver. Even if it is related to something outside his comfort zone…I wish him all the success in life and pray that he does eloquently well as per his capability.

Asif is a proactive, responsible, strong and dedicated natural born leader - his conception, skills, creativity and understanding of dependencies make him very unique. A hard working, broad-minded individual, his knowledge is vast and thorough. A highly motivated, great developer with the ability to make good, sometimes bold decisions. I enjoyed working with him on the various projects we took on. He denotes a lots of analytical capability and willingness for his both personal & professional development.

Asif's striking attributes are his amicable personality, soft and easy attitude, and above all, delivery. I haven't seen him troubled or panicked by the problems thrown at him. When there is a need, he simply puts himself into his task, and gets it done within the required time. He is a great asset, and that's why we hired him in my current organization: Sapphire Consulting Services.
