From 1991, I have taken pride in writing code. Nothing excites me more than intricate design sessions. Product Development is my big love. I love to help products evolve from conception to reality.

A hands on technologist with a passion for engineering complex solutions with simplicity.
Latest technology. Latest paradigms. Across both front end and back end.
Bachelors from Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India in Civil Engineering. Joined the IT rank and file with Citicorp Bangalore.
Worked with C, Basic, X Windows.
Here I stored keystrokes in a buffer and played them back to automatically execute a bunch of programs during end of the day.
Consulted with AT & T and Lucent Technologies. These are companies with mature release processes. I started out with X Windows & C. Developed my own ORM framework in C++ for Lucent.
Great experience with Shell Scripting
Consulted with Merrill on their warehousing system. Automated their entire ETL for the warehouse using Shell and SQL. An entire warehouse was managed by less then 6 team members.
Reporting tools and Campaign Management tools with XML/XSLT, Java and messaging. My first fling with Java which resulted in a love that is still going strong!
Responsible for the Middleware of Private Client Services.
Developed the first version of the orchestration wizard framework to implement service discovery and provide a middleware messaging based framework.
A foray into entrepreneurship with the development of a Patient Management System for a hospital in Louisville,Kentucky.
Head of architecture for a product development outsourcing company called GlobalLogic.
Developed a full scale template application in Java with Spring/Hibernate etc. This was used to accelerate product development. So for the first time, I got exposed to the notion of accelerators.
This was a versatile phase with exposure to SEPG, QA, Release Management along with development and architecture.
For the first time, I was a program manager in Microsoft. Imagine that! A change of technology and a change of role. I could not handle the double whammy. So within a year I decided to go back to technology.
But this phase was indeed unique to me since I understood how we can play with an existing product to hone it with the appropriate parameters. I learnt A-B testing at adCenter. Thank you Microsoft!
My career now headed to an important bend. I discovered E-Commerce and large scale transformations with Sapient. I developed three more frameworks and developed an immense amount of consulting experience for enterprise architecture, agility and e-commerce.
Sapient is a great digital agency. So this was the time I learnt about experience.
But my work with gargantuan, outdated packages in Commerce and even with experience frustrated me. If only I could develop my own product that utilizes all my expertise in engineering systems effectively from tiny components!
In E-Bee, I amalgamated all my consulting, technical and domain skills in both Commerce and Experience to craft a product that has the pedigree of a full fledged enterprise application with the foot print and simplicity that is also amenable to be used by a small to medium business.
You should go to the E-Bee Site if you want more details or look up this blog for specific discussions around it.
