Interview: Sandhata, DevOps Excellence Awards finalist

clock • 2 min read

"Sandhata is a niche company when it comes to digital transformation and integration"

The logic of adopting DevOps for digital is fast becoming unassailable. Companies that supply DevOps solutions, or who are already using DevOps practices for success, are molding the growing space.

One of those companies is Sandhata, which has reached the shortlist for not just one or two, but five categories at the upcoming DevOps Excellence Awards: Best DevOps Transformation; Best Use of Microservices Containers; DevOps Project of the Year; Best DevOps Team; and Best DevOps Consulting Firm.

We talked to Anand Rajagopalan, head of India operations at Sandhata, about what makes the company different from other technology firms.

Sandhata is a niche company when it comes to digital transformation and integration. It has been in the industry for close to 20 years, helping customers solve some of the complex business problems using its own capabilities in DevOps automation, DevOps for mainframe, and digital transformation.

Rajagopalan says Sandhata is in an excellent position to look at the 360° view of any business problem that a customer gives it.

"When I say the end-to-end view, I'm talking about not just the technology, but what it takes to implement that technology through a service delivery and how to marry the service delivery with the human capital management by deploying the right people to solve the right problem.

"So when it comes to an end-to-end component, Sandhata is very niche, and we're very special."

Rajagopalan says Sandhata has had many DevOps achievements over the last 12 months - to the extent that singling just one out would be difficult.

However, he believes that delivering a state-of-art digital transformation platform to Vodafone - the subject of several of Sandhata's awards entries - was "very, very unique."

To find out more about Sandhata and what it is working on this year, watch our video interview with Anand Rajagopalan now.
