I had the privilege of working with Sriram in at a key information infrastructure program at Microsoft. He has one of the freshest minds in the industry and the talent to bring change quickly even in the most complex corporate environments. I also enjoyed his contributions to the information architects’ community and his friendly, always approachable personality.

It was my pleasure to have worked with Sriram during our days building Citi Transaction Services’ flagship product – CitiDirect. His tireless effort along with his astute sense of perceiving the business needs was truly admirable. In an intense and dynamic environment, he architected and designed complex components of a global Payments and Receivables corporate banking Platform. He also possesses good communication skills and a pleasing personality – very comfortable in any tech/product discussion or a business forum..
