How we got started
Siva Nagalingam founded KCS in 2010 after exiting Microsoft and starting an educational startup (Kalvionline). Kalvi means education in Tamil and he bootstrapped an online activity management system for educational institutes. To keep the money flowing for the startup he embarked on a consulting practice.
The time was right for cloud based solutions, mobile solutions and big data analysis and companies were looking for expertise to help them with their agile needs. With a small team of consultants, KCS started delivering quick turnaround solutions in an agile manner. In 2012, Srikant Vemparala joined Kalvi as a partner to head over the engineering division. Fresh from his experience at Microsoft designing and handling large data warehouses of TBs in size and a distributed cloud based real time analysis project for a leading healthcare provider, Srikant put together a team of experts to handle the big data requirements. And the projects started rolling: AT&T, T-Mobile, Microsoft, King Country, SAP, HP etc.,
We recruit aggressively and train our consultants on Azure stack, large scale web development practices, implementing big data practices, IoT and automation frameworks. Our IP is our people and the service we provide. We strive in taking on challenging projects and delivering them within tight deadlines, without compromising on quality. We also provide staff augmentation, when expert resources are needed for your critical projects.
Today Kalvi is centered in Redmond, WA – close to our clients in the Pacific Northwest that we serve. We have an offshore software development center in Hyderabad.
