Helping companies adapt to the future: Unite IT Consulting


The pace of technological development since the last couple of decades has been nothing short of frightening. A company could be a market leader today because it developed a new piece of technology, but can go bankrupt in a year because someone somewhere developed something better. The best example of such rapid change is the iPhone, unveiled by the iconic Steve Jobs, which stimulated the smartphone industry and put many conventional phone makers out of business.

Apart from developing new technology, adapting to it and integrating it into services can also be challenging for companies. Certain providers may go out of business just because they could not include a new technology into their suite of services. However, a company named Unite IT Consulting has taken up the task of helping various corporations adapt to newer technologies and maintain and expand their foothold over their markets.

In conversation with the brains behind Unite IT Consulting, Deepak Vijayaraj

What was the motivation to launch the company?

Unite was formed for the purpose to make a difference to our customers, our people, and the environment. We believe it’s more about improving organization, people, and getting technology to work better for clients. If customers have a challenge dealing with disruptive technologies such as Cloud, Artificial Intelligence, Augmented Reality, Internet of Things Sensors, Big Data or Analytics, we’re committed to help these organizations to face those challenges.

What were the challenges faced in the initial years?
