I will describe myself as a senior professional with track record of strong leadership and successful management - specifically for Software Products and Solutions programs. I have over two decades of industry experience in software solutions - in roles ranging from Engineering, Delivery, Client services, Setting-up and operationalizing COEs including Process and Technology COEs, and senior management for delivery of enterprise commercial software in multiple domains for global software companies. I have extensively leveraged offshore and global delivery collaborating with global functions to create new products and business lines, nurtured start-ups and led high growth business units. I have managed and implemented numerous enterprise class software products / projects in roles ranging from VP Engineering, CTO to Director products, and related technical and managerial roles. During these assignments, I have led and driven initiatives in the areas of People management, Process management and Customer delight in addition to the Technology management functions. I am passionate about enabling excellence through (re)defining/aligning current processes and ecosystem and bringing in new initiatives and innovation in these areas. These programs have had significant positive impact on organization, including Product R&D, Employee SAT, Customer SAT, and other measured KPIs. Most recently I was part of senior management team, and responsible for success and growth of global product portfolio and solutions businesses of Emptoris [] in India. Emptoris is acknowledged world leader in the Supply and Contract management solutions suite ranked top by Forrester research, Gartner, and AMR research. Earlier I have worked at Emptoris[ , now an IBM company] as VP & MD; Symphony Services[] - as VP; Iflex/Oracle Finance - as Senior Consultant & head of product development; and i2 Technologies - as Director Products & India operations.

At this time, I have taken a break from the industry corporate and have been volunteering in the field of education for under-privileged. For the last year plus, I have been involved in activities for preparing underprivileged children in Brooke Fields area in Bangalore in joining formal schools. This has been very fruitful and satisfying. As we speak, about 100 plus children have joined formal English medium schools [ STD I to STD VIII] for the first time in their life and close to 200 are being tutored and prepared for the same in the coming years. This has been possible with good help from corporate. This has kept me and my wife busy for the last year plus. This has picked up momentum and is running well. So the thought of exploring connecting to IT fraternity. I hope with my years in the industry, I will be able to help, guide, mentor some up-and-coming businesses [ideally the ones which have set the business in motion and want to move to the next level in terms of...] in moving up the ladder, scaling up, expanding the footprint, servicing the global customers a bit more effectively, running and operating the business a bit more professionally and efficiently and helping create a bit more success.....
