Mahesh Pakala is looking for techies who have fire in their bellies. And what Infostep can offer them is an opportunity, he claims, no other Indian IT Company can provide—
challenging assignments coupled with a responsibility to build products and the freedom to directly interact with the clients.

That’s the reason, in the last six months, he has motivated 45 software engineers from MNC IT companies like HP, Oracle, IBM and others, to join InfoSTEP, as they are energized by the exposure they get here. He lures techies with a few years of experience by exposing them to challenges and opportunities. “What I see in them is the inquisitiveness to learn. I keep them charged up by having brainstorming sessions,” says Pakala, Managing Director, Asia-Pacific, InfoSTEP.

For the last one-year that InfoSTEP has been in India, techies heave been busy building products in Business Intelligence and Compliance space—two of the fastest growing segments worldwide. Their
engineers build sophisticated algorithms and reporting tools that provide measurements at micro and macro levels using balanced scorecards, efficiency metrics and workflow and focused data integration.

They are also offering services. For InfoSTEP and Pakala, this combination works well if they have to grow fast. Not only does it bring in more revenues but also helps techies in the company, because of the two pronged model. When a client has deployed a compliance product bought from InfoSTEP, there are hosts of other services that are incorporated into the system. The client need not go to another vendor for the new software. It could just get them from InfoSTEP’s consultants. “Selling products and offering services around it, goes hand in hand and helps both the product and the services oriented techies,” says Pakala.
