ESDS gets a new Global CEO – former HPE leader GS Murthy

Accomplished technology leader GS Murthy has joined ESDS Software Solutions as CEO of Global Business. Murthy in his career spanning 19 years has worked for top MNCs like Oracle, IBM and HPE. In his last stint as a Chief Technologist and Global Head – Solutions and Technology (Global System Integrators) at Hewlett Packard Enterprise he also led the pre-sales and consulting alliance executive teams for GSI-I6 business.

At ESDS Murthy is expected to steer the company’s growth in global markets. “Here, my goal is to marry the strengths of ESDS with my Managed Services Provider knowledge and give birth to a huge growing incubation channel for us. I am looking at multiple geographies globally where we should be investing our time and money. We should not hesitate to target 10 times growth from where we are today. It will not only change the dynamics of how ESDS is going to be looked at in the market place but it is going to change the dynamics of customers, onboarding with us. We will grow with our customers. Customers looking at cutting-edge technologies and digital transformation should be partnering with ESDS to see more ROI,” he said.

Piyush Somani, CEO, Founder and Managing Director of ESDS expressed his fondness for Murthy and said, “We have experienced remarkable growth in our business due to the progress in Indian Cloud market and now we are looking forward to expand offshore too. Murthy will lead ESDS and take it to the next level with his experience of working with large IT giants.”

Murthy meanwhile, expressed his excitement on joining the ESDS family. “ESDS’ leadership skills, customer focus, relationship with the customers and technological expertise are its unique propositions. The company has the agility that most players in the market don’t have today.  Currently, ESDS is addressing real-time customer problems related to cloud with its technical strengths. It is a very chaotic market and the sheer number of technological advances is confusing the customers in terms of what it is that they really need to adapt to grow their businesses. Without Cloud none of the new IT platforms like IoT, AI, high performance, FinTech, containerization, mobility and others would have come into play. And, ESDS has exclusive technical expertise that nobody in the market possesses. Talking about IT cost control mechanisms, Vertical Auto-scaling is our biggest differentiator which will eventually make businesses worldwide succeed. With ESDS I plan to iron out chaos that industries face today and bring empathy in those industries.

Q: How do you plan to take ESDS to the next level from your past experiences?

GS Murthy: Here, my goal is to marry the strengths of ESDS with the MSP knowledge I bring and give birth to a huge growing incubation channel for us. I am looking at multiple geographies where we should be investing our time and money. We should not hesitate to target 10 times growth from where we are today. It will not only change the dynamics of how ESDS is going to be looked at in the market place but it is going to change the dynamics of customers, onboarding with us. We will grow with our customers. Customers looking at cutting-edge technologies and digital transformation should be partnering with ESDS to see more ROI,” Murthy further added.
