Melarkode joins Dell Boomi from his most recent role at Virtustream, a subsidiary of Dell Technologies, and with experience in the APJ, US and European IT industries, including senior positions across ITO, BPO, cloud, data and applications businesses.
Boomi says Melarkode’s role is to expand existing and drive new revenue opportunities to capitalise on “strong demand for cloud-based integration”.
As head of APJ, Melarkode is tasked with leading the growth of Boomi across the region, where the company says it has experienced “unprecedented traction since embarking on its expansion plans in 2016’ – and will be responsible for driving the whole-of-region expansion strategy as well as strengthening partner and customer relationships.
“There is a prevailing sense of urgency within progressive organisations to move away from legacy on-premises integration solutions, which are restrictive and inflexible, to cloud-based options like integration platform-as-a-service (iPaaS) that are much easier to use, and therefore more suited to business decision-making.
“In the short term, the opportunity for us as a company is to further analyse this region to address the needs of organisations operating in any given nation while adhering to the governance that regulates them.
“We will continue to build out our partner and customer ecosystem by driving the right levels of engagement to equip those partners and customers with solutions that help them unlock data and use it to drive modernisation strategies. This will help organisations fast-track adoption of technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) as they develop prominence in both modern and less mature economies.”
