Raghavendra NK, CEO at Sumadhva Technologies

Great Companies: How did you get your idea or concept for the business?

Raghavendra NK: Training has been my passion since college days and that passion for imparting training inspired me to start a business in the area of corporate training. I switched over from a large MNC to a training company in 2004 only to work in the area of my interest.

Great Companies: What are the various Services provided by Sumadhva Technologies

Raghavendra NK: Sumadhva Technologies started in 2011, is completely dedicated to software testing activities. We provide corporate training services, outsourcing software testing professionals, one time placements of software testing professionals and Testing services.

We have trained more than 10,000 software testing professionals in the corporate training industry, provided testing services to mid sized IT companies in the area of functional, automation and performance testing, outsourced talented software testing professionals to large MNCs. We have also developed a very niche healthcare product in the area of Histopathology.

Great Companies: What are the struggles and challenges you face?

Raghavendra NK: Large companies do not entertain small companies, so convincing large MNCs was a struggle initially with all the necessary documentation and procedure they have. Secondly, we need a live product to train individuals on software testing. Building a product was challenging and converting all requirements into exercises for candidates was challenging. Cashflow to reinvest in the our company for marketing activities has been really challenging for the last few years especially in the post covid scenario.

Great Companies: How do you plan to grow in the future? What does 5 years down the line look like for Sumadhva Technologies?

Raghavendra NK: We have ambitious plans for the next 5 years. Sumadhva Technologies is going to scale up its activities in the areas of retail training on software testing like any other retail majors like NIIT, APTECH etc.. We wish to continue our focus on corporate training, product development and testing services. The niche healthcare product on Histopathology is getting ported to the cloud platform, in which we see a major turnaround. The USP of Sumadhva Technologies is its capability of designing test cases for products using combination of test design techniques like BVA, ECP, Decision Tables, use case based testing, state transition testing and pair-wise testing followed by exploratory testing tours. Through this we achieve both efficiency and effectiveness in test case design resulting in reducing the testing life cycle by almost 40%. We are confident that this unique methodology is going to be embraced by leading companies.

Great Companies: If you had one piece of advice to someone just starting out, what would it be?

Raghavendra NK: My primary piece of advice to someone starting is to have patience. You must develop patience to face turbulence's along the way. Have realistic goals, work towards the goals relentlessly without losing heart. Unexpected situations may occur in the process. In my case, I had to face major health problems which I was not mentally prepared for. Need a lot of conviction to resume operations. Customer centric attitude, firm determination to satisfy customers, quality delivery results in repeated business from the same clients.
