Your top priority while making decisions to improve tech infra in your organisation?

To make sure the new solutions help us achieve more than what we are doing right now. It can be easy to overlook existing tech infra when there is a new trend in the market. But assessing its relevancy and adaptability is more important.

Challenges you face in driving digital transformation?

Human brains are wired to perceive change as a challenge. However, positive changes help us do better. In driving digital transformation, making people think forward, adapt to new changes, and helping them pick up the necessary skills is very challenging. Also, selecting the right toolset is a challenge as there are many options available. Understanding, analyzing, and choosing the right tools can consume a lot of valuable time.

Do you feel that freshers in the industry come with only basic knowledge but don’t have the right skills to fulfil job requirements? If yes, your suggestion to students and colleges?

In a world where change is the only constant, freshers come out with the basic minimum skills required in the industry. Alongside academics, they should learn the core skills in demand and soft skills like communication and interpersonal skills.

What’s your mantra to become successful in life?

Keep doing what you are doing, don’t give up so soon. When doing something, particularly running a business, it can be easy to get intimidated by how fast competitors are moving and their marketing budgets. But the key is to hold on and ensure that you are providing value to the stakeholders and satisfying the customer needs.

What would you like to give back to society?

I want to do what I can to help this society thrive; this has been a driving factor to start E2E Networks in 2009 when there were no contractless cloud computing services available in India. Since then, E2E Networks has helped many startups and SMEs with our highly-competitive cloud computing services.

Your favourite book and what are you reading now?

My favorite book is The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by R. Stephen Covey.

Currently, I am reading The Hard Thing About Hard Things by Ben Horowitz — a book about the hardships of running a startup and practical advice on overcoming some of the toughest challenges.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

Spending time with kids, learning something new, and having conversations with interesting people on twitter.

Achievements (Awards & Recognitions)

Building E2E Networks from the ground up has been a significant achievement. Last year, we went public by listing E2E Networks on NSE Emerge platform.

In 2009, E2E Networks pioneered contractless cloud computing in India. Since then, we have launched numerous products through our self-service public cloud and helped organizations of various sizes to drive digital transformation. And we’re now working relentlessly to make our public cloud better than ever and are introducing new products based on customer demand.
