For several years after setting up the first UK-made digital computer at the Indian Statistical Institute (ISI), Calcutta, in 1955, our country ran slow on its wheels in leveraging the benefits of IT. But the second the sector gained momentum, an ambitious Tamilian, Sekar Ponniah (Founder & CTO, Torus Innovations Pvt. Ltd.) shifted his base to India. Sekar who always had an intense shove to do something to promote his motherland while working for years in the U.S., drove back to his hometown, Tirunelveli, and ventured Global Software Solutions (TVL) Pvt. Ltd. in the year 2000, which proffers support, product management and consulting services, predominantly to U.S. customers.

But imagine the scarcity of IT talent & knowledge base in a tier-two city of our country during those days. Sekar had to begin from scratch, and he did! "Entrepreneurship is always a challenge. The sturdy belief in yourself, and perusing persistently till your goal is achieved is the key to success," advices Sekar. He incepted Global Research Education & Training Foundation (GREAT) to train local talents, which today trains the local candidates from almost 70 engineering colleges around Tirunelveli district, and carves skilled & worthy professionals out of them. "We recruit people, train them, give employment and also allow them to get employed in other companies. I perceive this as a social responsibility and I always believe in promoting my home town," asserts a proud Sekar. Surpassing one of the deadliest startup challenges - talent acquisition, Global Software gained pace and in 2004 it emerged with its premier & world-class product, the Cheque Truncation System, which was beyond imagination of any other peer at that period of time.

Experience Bestows Class

Started his career in the field of computers in early 80s, Sekar's story is intrinsically the story of global IT revolution. He witnessed the paradigm shifts of technology for decades in both Indian & U.S. panorama. Clutching his extensive know-how in the segment that spans over three decades, Sekar came up with the trademark TORUS platform in 2010. Considering the excited response that the platform had in shut-eye time from venues like CeBIT, in addition to a gamut of tech-recognitions, Sekar made TORUS under one separate entity in 2016 - Torus Innovations Pvt. Ltd. as a 100 percent subsidiary of Global Software Solutions, which today caters predominantly to BFSI and Public Sector organizations. "Now we are emphasizing on Torus. We are on a mission to promote the benefits of this Low Code platform to all the enterprise level customers," adjoins Sekar. As one of the most loyal platforms to carve Vertical Agnostic Enterprise Grade applications, TORUS today helps to develop products ranging from Cheque Truncation System to National Automated Clearing House, CIBIL Reporting System, Document Management, Web Portals and e-KYC among many more.
