    Saravana Kumar

    Founder and CTO

    As the founder of BizTalk360, Saravana also fulfills the role of CTO, where he is responsible for the strategic direction of the company and most importantly, our clients. A Microsoft Integration MVP since 2007, Saravana was awarded the "Integration MVP of the Year 2013" by Microsoft. With more than a decade of experience handling BizTalk customers across the world, Saravana was frustrated seeing customers struggling with same challenges again and again when it comes to BizTalk sever administration and operations. The idea of BizTalk360 sparked to him over a cup of coffee with his fellow MVP’s, and therefore he started a pet project to address some of the challenges faced by BizTalk administrators, which slowly turned out into full blown commercial product helping customers across the world. Most importantly, he always focuses on translating the client goals into successful strategies.

    Saravana is a very active member in the BizTalk server community. A popular speaker, you can spot him often presenting at various BizTalk conferences, user groups, local colleges etc. across Europe, USA and India. If you are a BizTalk programmer or administrator, it’s likely that you’ve read something from him or heard him speak on BizTalk related topics. His blog is very popular among the BizTalk community, attracting over 11,000 readers a month. Asides from brainstorming on the latest projects, you can see him spending plenty of time reading/writing blogs, spending time with his kids and is a MacBook genius.

We also have women employees in development and customer support areas. What generally is a male-dominated software industry, we’re proud to have nearly 40% of our workforce covered by women employees.

We purposely hired our UK office in a suburb instead of going to central London so that everyone will have a good work-life balance. All our UK women employees do their regular school runs, either dropping off or picking up kids from school. We don’t want to spend 2 hours a day commuting and getting tired for nothing.

We provide open access to all employees. They are free to explore and see the opportunities. We have taken people from our India office to US and UK for conferences, once in a while we brought them to our UK office for short term work. In the future, we will be increasing mixing up teams between UK and India to improve collaboration and exposure.

We provide top range equipment to our staff. All UK employees get MacBook or Lenovo T410, Herman Miller Aeron chair, 4K Dell 27” monitor, Jabra headset as a standard. We never compromise on quality of equipment that we use. We try to match the India team as much as possible.

We may be a small team, but we do not compromise on our work environment. We have equipped ourselves with modern meeting rooms with high end television screen and video conferencing equipment.

Every day, we have our lunch together as a team and enjoy having non-work related conversations, be it about food, sometimes it may be about fast cars and technology, sometime we even play some fun games like “guess a location”.
