Ness Digital Engineering has appointed technology veteran Vinay Rajadhyaksha to President and Global Chief Delivery Officer. With more than 30 years of global IT experience, Rajadhyaksha will help the company execute its growth plans by further scaling Ness’ delivery capabilities across its globally-distributed, Agile teams.

“Vinay brings rich experience in managing practice-based delivery teams in a high-growth, global model,” said Paul Lombardo, Ness Digital Engineering CEO. “He’s the perfect fit for our organization as we look to deepen our investments in expertise, intellectual property development and partnerships in areas that our customers find valuable.”

Rajadhyaksha previously served as Head of Global People Supply Chain and Chief Delivery Officer (CDO) at L&T InfoTech. He also held CDO positions at Mastek and Mphasis. Rajadhyaksha will work out of Ness’ offices in Mumbai, India, where he resides with his family.

“I’m excited to help Ness expand its delivery structure to further support and enrich the digital transformation journey for its customers,” said Rajadhyaksha. “And I look forward to working with the team to extend our digital engineering capabilities in both existing and new practice areas, supported by our culture where engineers have tremendous opportunity for growth and the freedom to innovate.”

Ness Digital Engineering designs and builds digital platforms and software that help organizations engage customers, differentiate their brands, and drive revenue growth. While the focus had earlier been on other markets such as Eastern Europe, India is one of its most important markets for Ness in recent years.

There is a constant need to respond to changing market demands and competitive pressures. To better reflect its current market and business focus, Ness Software Engineering Services in 2016 was rechristened to Ness Digital Engineering.  The vast majority of Ness’ business is focused on helping clients develop new digital products and platforms and execute digital transformation roadmaps for existing solutions, so companies can better differentiate their brands in the highly-competitive and fast-paced, digital marketplace.

Ness closely works with companies in the key verticals including banking and fintech, media and publishing, travel and hospitality, retail and automotive, to name a few. Highlighting the key challenges these companies face in the process of adopting digital transformation, Ganguly explained that the challenge often starts with the culture of the organization.

The company also sees a number of interesting developments in software and technology from the Cloud, DevOps, and Agile architecture based on technologies to mature in the coming years, he said that rapid advances around Containerization will enable greater cloud adoption.
