The Technocrat

I have been curious since my childhood. I have always tried to find reasons for everything which happens around me. I work on computers by profession but at my heart I am an automobile enthusiast. I believe whatever the technology is, whether MS servers or Network switches, everything works on very basic logic. If you complete a circuit the bulb will light up. This is the exact approach I use to fix issues.

Past Experiences

I worked with the Microsoft Support team for over 5 years. I started my career as a Desktop Support Engineer with Windows XP and Windows 98/Me then progressed to the Enterprise Support Team. During my tenure I worked with various teams including Microsoft Exchange, Directory Services, Small Business Server, Microsoft Network Team etc. This was the foundation for all the knowledge I and in fact our company have today. We incorporate the same training formats and knowledge sessions which I had during our training sessions.

I left Microsoft as a Technical Lead for the Directory Services Team and joined IBM, I handeled the biggest possible clients in India, including cellular network giants like Airtel, Vodafone and many small portfolio accounts such as Jet Airways, Tata Motors etc. Working with IBM I had an opportunity to maintain infrastructures with multiple forest, multiple domains and numerous servers.

After working for over 8 years with these biggies we decided to start Pledge Tech in 2009. Since then we have worked with numerous small businesses in the US and the UK, either directly or through local consultants. Overall the journey has been rewarding. I would like to conclude my introduction with the following saying which I completely believe and live by.

Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.

Experience:

I started my career with IBM Daksh, then worked as a Support Engineer for a UK based ISP process. As a support engineer I supported inexperienced home users with their internet related issues. No remote access, no screen sharing. You just have to walk through the issues with the customer, explain to them what they need to do in the easiest possible way, and get their issues resolved. One very important thing I learned from this job is patience. Working with home user, who are not at all technical, you need patience to explain the issue and resolve it.

Being a technical person, I always looked for more challenging issues. However working with an ISP, I wasn’t getting that opportunity. Hence, I joined the Microsoft Support Team as a Support Engineer, and provided technical assistance to Microsoft Enterprise customers. Within a year,I was promoted to Senior Support Engineer. While working with the Microsoft Support Team, worked on issues which were considered as “hardcore technical.” We often needed to co-ordinate with different specialties like networking, performance, setup, Exchange, or the SBS Team to resolve issues, and I learned a lot from it. After spending 20 Months with Microsoft support, I felt that I still wasn’t getting what I needed. I always wanted more of, and from, technology.

That was the time when a decision was made and we decided to found Pledge Technologies. Since 2009, I’ve been a part of Pledge Technologies, and Here I got what I needed, exposure to things I’ve always wanted to work on. Proving support to non-technical users is still something that I enjoy. At the same time working on the latest technologies, planning, implementation, configuration etc. Now, we work with both UK and US based small and medium business, directly with clients and local IT consultants, and home users as well. With Pledge Technologies, it’s a dream come true.
