30 Most Influential CEOs to Watch 2020


Cybage: Delivering Value, Scientifically

For an organization to grow, it needs to understand the market, its audience, and create great customer experiences. Cybage, a company based out of Pune, India has been helping organizations grow for 25 years through its splendid services.

Cybage was founded in 1995 by a software design pioneer Arun Nathani. The company provides a range of global services including technology consulting, strategy, operations, general consulting, and much more to organizations across verticals and man-made boundaries. The company is a data-oriented organization that has a delivery focused approach which helps it deliver products and services that help its clients become more innovative and agile.

25 Years of Excellence

The company has come a long way since its inception in 1995. Today, the company offers consulting and professional services to its clients in multiple sectors. Cybage, which was founded with just 4 employees on its payroll, has now grown to a company that has over 6,300 employees in India and its offices worldwide. 

It has been a remarkable journey – from its humble beginnings that the company kick-started from an office in Pune, India to having six development centers across India and having global teams in over 15 countries across North America, Asia, Australia, and Europe.

25 successful years of delivering services is something of a distinction. Arun Nathani, MD & CEO of Cybage Software says, “The difference here is not Cybage’s spectacular journey of 25 years, nor is it our pinnacles of success splashing across global media today. Rather, what makes this achievement unique is how Cybage has traveled all this distance while keeping her soul intact!”

COVID Response

The coronavirus pandemic has affected lifestyles and businesses across the globe. As lockdowns were enforced and businesses retreated homewards operationally, health became the top priority. Cybage was amongst the first companies to put into place a Business Continuity Plan and a Disaster Recovery module in place.

Cybage considers its employees to be its biggest assets and is ensuring the utmost care of their health and well-being. While the majority of its workforce works from home, those coming to the office are being protected by well-sanitized offices. All of its workplaces, cafeterias, conference rooms, incoming vehicles, and other office premises are being sanitized. Besides this, the company is conducting compulsory temperature screening of employees using thermal scanners. Further, employees are being provided necessary personal sanitization provisions including face masks and sanitizers at all possible touch-points. 

In order to encourage social distancing, all meetings are being held remotely via collaborative tools, employee seating arrangements have been made with the help of isolated work-stations, and cafeterias have been segregated. Earlier at the onset of the pandemic, all the support staff was provided temporary residency at the office premises. The company has also cancelled all of its travel plans until normalcy returns.

The Leader Upfront

He began his career in the U.S. as a software design engineer. He returned to India in early 1990’s. He has been awarded ‘CEO of the Year Award’ by the National Awards in IT Excellence, and ‘CEO with HR orientation Award’ during the Talent & HR Leadership conference organized by World HRD Congress and ET Now.
