CDC Software Corporation, provider of hybrid enterprise software applications and services, has promoted Nagaraja Prakasam, Managing Director of CDC Software’s India operations, to the additional role of Managing Director for South and Southeast Asia, and plans to expand its product engineering operations in India by 15 percent this year.

Prakasam has held a variety of management roles at CDC Software for nearly 14 years. After an accomplished career at the company’s US offices, he moved back to India four years ago to lead CDC Software’s Bangalore product engineering operations. In his role in the Bangalore operations, Prakasam doubled development resources and built a Center of Excellence for the company’s front office solutions.

He also launched the CDC Software’s Global Franchise Program in India that is responsible for selling Pivotal CRM products in the country. In the two years since it was launched, Pivotal CRM has been implemented in some of the leading brands in India.

“I am pleased to be back in Bangalore today, and deeply honored to announce Naga’s promotion. CDC Software believes that India and the Southeast Asia region hold significant growth potential in the coming decade, and with Naga’s leadership, we are well positioned for sales expansion here,” said Peter Yip, CEO of CDC Software, announcing Prakasam’s new role.

Prakasam completed his engineering degree from Thiagarajar College of Engineering, Madurai, and then did his MBA from Kennesaw State University. He started his career as a Developer for ERP products in 1996 and moved up over the years.
