In today’s digital age, there is a need to embrace the digital transformation within and evolve as an integrator of processes through agile and customer focused business frameworks. As the famous Amercian author, Stewart Brand quotes, “Once a new technology rolls over you, if you’re not part of the steamroller, you’re part of the road.” If one wants to become a part of the modern business, then he/she must accept and adopt the technological advancements in their respective ventures. Otherwise, they are no longer part of the tech race. Enterprise technology has always been complex, non-intuitive, and the integration has been difficult, but now it must deliver the same ease that it offers the everyday consumers.
Techwave is a leading global IT services and solutions company revolutionizing digital transformations. Techwave’s journey kick started in 2004 with headquarters in Exton, PA. The solutions provider has a strong alliance with the industry’s best-in-class service contributors such as SAP, Oracle, Amazon, IBM, Microsoft Azure, Informatica, 1010Data, BPMonline, Tableau, OneStream, 1WorldSync, and over 1500 global employees to deliver the growing needs of enterprises today. Techwave is ranked #9 among the fastest growing companies in the region by the Philadelphia Business Journal and #15 in the IT services domain in the USA by Inc 500.
Guiding Light of the Company
Rajasekhar Gummadapu is the Co-founder & CEO of Techwave. By profession, Raj is serving as a Charted Accountant in India and a Certified Public Accountant in the United States with vast experience in various strategic and operational roles in finance. He has played an instrumental role in implementing financial transformations, Enterprise Performance Management, and Business Analytics. With 17 years of experience, Raj has worked with top five consultancy companies and several mid size to Fortune 100 companies across different industries providing strategic initiatives, global processes, and systemic transformations.
Along with Co-founder Damodar Gummadapu, Rajasekhar had identified a gap in the SAP delivery solutions, where huge investments in technology implementations were not transitioned into real business value and lacked focus on analytics. This led to the creation of Techwave in 2004, with a core focus on SAP approach that has broadened extensively to the customer demands and evolving technologies. The SAP solutions provider has been positioned as an end to end service provider and a right-sized partner that can deliver customized solutions to enterprise transformation solutions by imparting their clients with a competitive edge. The next milestone that Raj envisions for the company is to achieve tremendous growth leveraging its delivery strengths, robust service offerings, and innovative solutions.
Rajasekhar advises the younger generation to be unafraid of possible failures and remain flexible enough to adapt to changes in technology. Further, he adds that the concepts and ideas of a venture must be practical, adjustable within multiple scenarios, and must be altogether thorough. According to him, that is the key to remain relevant in a technology driven business.
