Wings2i: Securing the most Valued Asset of Any Organization - 'Information'

Date:   Sunday , November 23, 2014

The influx of cloud, big data, outsourcing and off-shoring along with the ever-rising increase in data types, speed and volume are forcing organizations to jump through the hoops of information security, data privacy and compliance; often driven by customer contractual requirements. Whilst largest organization breeze through them, it is fiery ride for SMEs since their budget limits them from attaining quintessential services. Wings2i IT Solutions avails the boon of quality knowledge services to global organizations - especially the SME segment, with quality knowledge and services comparable to those from premium consulting organizations. In a short journey of 5 years, the mid-tier provider has not only earned the trust of giant corporations with their incredible training & consulting services, but also won the hearts of several SMEs through premium end-to-end managed services as a true knowledge partner, with complete flexibility.

The Bangalore-based company was founded by Vinod Agrasala, a driven professional who was always striving to establish a cost-effective, value-focused, customer-driven and solution-oriented system, during his endeavors in various organizations. As he soon realized that he should build such an organization from scratch to do full justice to that vision, he founded Wings2i in 2009, and he started the mission along with Reena Ramachandran and Praveen Reddy, the other two directors of Wings2i. The founders\' long term presence in the domain empowered them to get off the ground quickly with lots of industry references. As the word on Wings2i\'s superior services were caught like a wild fire, the company spread their wings from focus in service management and information security to quality, compliance, risk management and data privacy among others.

Their proven capability and experience in providing comprehensive services in a flexible combination of intervention or project based consulting coupled with managed ongoing & annuity based service models are being widely appreciated by clients and partners. This approach truly facilitates improvement in the customers\' organization, while the key stake holders can focus more on their business priorities.

Wings to Innovation & Ideas

Since inception, Wings2i has been managing the ISMS needs of a leading VAS provider in telecom domain. The company astonished the customer and established themselves as their true knowledge partner by aligning services to customer\'s need from time to time and following flexible approach on their engagement model. Wings2i truly enables customers\' business through willingness to scale up and down their resources, effort and deliverables at various times to enable customer\'s needs and even extending deliverables to areas that are related yet beyond ISMS scope where needed.

As the name suggests, Wings2i not only provides wings to the 2 Is - Innovation and Idea of clients, but also enables the same within their organization by continuously fine-tuning their methodologies and approach at various levels.

Benefactors & Contributors

Wings2i is extremely heedful on selecting and retaining the right resource, since they perceive their employees as one critical set of stake holders. Hence, they endeavor to extend maximum possible benefits to their team. Every team member is motivated to continuously acquire, share and use knowledge on all current and prospective domains where Wings2i can add value to customers. Their non-hierarchical structure enables an open and conducive environment to team work and improved productivity. \"Each and every member of Wings2i will continue to be a significant contributor as well as benefactor of Wings2i growth and success story,\" says Vinod Agrasala, MD, CEO & Principal Consultant, Wings2i IT Solutions.

The company finds it challenging to setup an effective business acquisition system for their skill and knowledge oriented services. As the company remodelled their business from short-term training engagements to medium and long-term consulting & managed services, they experienced a minor bump in terms of cash-flow and profitability. However, focused effort to establish strong systems internally are helping them to build a strong foundation from where they can actively take up next level growth in terms of scale, markets, focus areas and offerings. The company is currently keen on emerging in terms of systems, people and business growth by fine-tuning and strengthening their internal systems and frameworks; while strongly adhering to their \'most trusted knowledge provider\' tag.
