ESDS appoints new CEO
G.S. Murthy has joined ESDS as the new CEO, global business. He comes with 19 years of work experience in the technology sector.
Elaborating on the development, founder and MD of ESDS, Piyush Somani, said, “Many of us at ESDS have seen his leadership skills as well as his expertise in technology from his Oracle days. We have experienced phenomenal growth in our business due to the growth in India’s cloud market and now we are looking to expand offshore as well. Murthy, with his experience of working with large MNC IT giants, will help ESDS go to the next level.”
Excited to join ESDS, Murthy said, “ESDS has the agility that most players in the market don’t have today. ESDS’ leadership skills, customer focus, relationship with the customers and technological expertise are its unique propositions. The company today is addressing real-time customer problems with its technical strengths. I’m sure we will win by creating competitive advantage for our partners and customers worldwide, by embarking on their digital transformation journey.”
Talking about his role as the new CEO, Murthy said he would combine the strengths of ESDS with the MSP knowledge he brings. “I am looking at multiple geographies where we should be investing our time and money,” he said.
Today, the cloud can actually take businesses to the next level and give them the ROIs. Without the cloud none of the new IT platforms like IoT, AI, FinTech, containerisation, mobility and others would have come into play. “Vertical autoscaling is our biggest differentiator when it comes to IT cost control mechanisms, which is eventually going to make businesses succeed. Thus, I think it is time now for ESDS to move to the next level – and go global,” he added.
Murthy has worked for top international IT companies like Oracle, IBM and HPE. In his last role as the chief technologist and global head – solutions and technology (Global System Integrators) at Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Murthy led the pre-sales and consulting alliance executive teams for GSI-I6 business, globally.
