"Gaurav Sharma has an incredible track record driving growth within enterprise technology companies, and we’re excited to have him as a co-founder, leading the business in our first international market that has emerged strongly from the pandemic and shows incredible potential across a diverse range of industry sectors from banking and financial services to retail, public sector, telecommunications, construction and logistics," said BluePi founders Pronam Chatterjee and Kaushik Khanna.

Gaurav Sharma has more than 20 years of consulting and sales experience in the IT Industry.

He joins the company from Cognizant, where he worked as ANZ vice president and head of industries business.

Sharma previously worked for HCL (most recently as vice president for Australia and head of sales for various industry sectors), and for Tech Mahindra (most recently as APAC head of airlines business).

It was his first role with Tech Mahindra – principal relationship manager for Qantas – that in 2006 brought Sharma to Australia from Germany, where he was working as a senior consultant at Siemens Information Systems.

Sharma holds bachelor's and master's degrees in computer science, both from Banaras Hindu University (India).

"The innovations that BluePi has pioneered will completely transform enterprise digital business models and I’m thrilled with the opportunity to bring our skills, knowledge and experience to enable customers and partners in Australia and New Zealand to leverage new-age technologies," said Sharma.

BluePi expects its presence in Sydney will accelerate its growth in the ANZ region.

The company offers consulting and strategic solutions across cloud, data, AI driven supply chain and app modernisation, and has particular expertise in the retail, BFSI, and logistics industries.

BluePi is an AWS premier consulting partner, and also has relationships with Snowflake, Databricks, GCP and Cloudera.

Hybrid cloud promises to bring together the best of both worlds enabling businesses to combine the scalability and cost-effectiveness of the cloud with the performance and control that you can get from your on-premise infrastructure.

Reducing WAN latency is one of the biggest issues with hybrid cloud performance. Taking advantage of compression and data deduplication can reduce your network latency.

Research firm, Markets and Markets, predicted that the hybrid cloud market size is expected to grow from US$38.27 billion in 2017 to US$97.64 billion by 2023.

Colocation facilities provide many of the benefits of having your servers in the cloud while still maintaining physical control of your systems.

Cloud adjacency provided by colocation facilities can enable you to leverage their low latency high bandwidth connections to the cloud as well as providing a solid connection back to your on-premises corporate network.

Download this white paper to find out what you need to know about enabling the hybrid cloud in your organisation.
