Satish Murthy, Senior Director and Bangalore Site Leader, Avaya India
The R&D team at Avaya is pushing the envelope by introducing advances in networking technology, and simplifying and transforming it at the same time. "Our vision for Avaya's R&D centres involves keeping customers at the heart of every action and innovating constantly so as to keep things useful yet simple. A multi-year plan is in execution, which is focused on business maturity, engineering excellence and a world-class team."
Murthy believes that agility concerns surrounding businesses must be addressed urgently. "We have been running many of the same networking protocols for over 25 years, even when business environments have gained greater agility, organisations have flattened and unified communications have become rich over the past years. The application space has become more dynamic, fuelled by the emerging mega trends of big data, mobile, social and cloud. However, the static architecture of conventional networks is ill-suited to dynamic computing requirements. The result is an increasing gap between the agility required for a successful business and that provided by the current networking foundation. Most IT professionals believe that SDN technologies are the way to bridge this gap." An engineer by training, Murthy is passionate about developing products that can help improve people’s lives. He is currently excited about the internet of things gaining ground.
Murthy has a son, who is currently studying in the UK and aspires to become a professional footballer.
