Cloud Computing was introduced with the simple idea of eliminating the cost and effort of maintaining a physical infrastructure. This reduction of manual work is useful to drive more business efficiency by focusing on strategic initiatives. Since then, Cloud Computing has been a pivotal enabler of digital transformation. Today, Cloud is not just a tool to leverage business infrastructure but is being used at an optimum level to organize business goals. A recent survey by Forrester predicts that more than 50% of enterprises will be adopting applications, platforms, and services powered by Cloud in order to drive a digital revolution by the end of 2018.
Witnessing this rapid increase in the adoption of multi and hybrid Clouds within leading organizations, Aditya Garg, the CEO and Founder of Centilytics started the company with the idea to build a gateway that helps such organizations connect, analyze, and manage all their Cloud infrastructure within a single pane of glass.
Aditya’s Expedition to the Foundation of Centilytics
Aditya is an alumnus of Stanford University with a Master’s in Computer Science; with an undergraduate degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology. During his internship, Aditya presented an automated Cloud project to the board and got the approval to start a completely new venture around his idea and established Centilytics in January 2017.
Being a 24-year-old young entrepreneur, Aditya believes in the youth power. He knows that young people with a lack of experience can be easily molded according to the company’s requirements. At Centilytics, the average age of the entire team is 24 with almost all hiring is done out of colleges. Aditya with his committed team follows a philosophy of making frequent mistakes but never repeat the same, helping them to create fool-proof solutions.

Prateek Garg has been in the IT industry for a significant time and understands the cloud ecosystem inside out.

Aditya’s Dynamic Advice for Young Entrepreneurs
While considering the huge landscape of Cloud Computing, Aditya advises young entrepreneurs that they should not be scared by the size of cloud industry. Today, most of the companies are working in Cloud Computing; however, an entrepreneur needs to bring better products to the market. While focusing on the actual idea, he should give equal or more attention to the working team. Entrepreneurship is all about motivation and focus, and having a team that keeps each other motivated, and helps employees stay focused. These are the most important values for an early stage startup.
Future of Cloud Computing from the Perception of Aditya
Explaining about the future of Cloud Computing and stating the importance of customized cloud solutions, the dynamic Founder of Centilytics says, “Cloud Computing and specifically Cloud infrastructure will commoditize in the next decade. Customers will be going multi-cloud and moving workloads seamlessly between the different hyper-scale providers based on need, cost, preference etc.”
