Since its founding in 1997, Ahmedabad-based Dev IT has matured into an IT managed services company. The company is predominantly focused on e-governance projects.“We started when the Gujarat government introduced its IT policy. The timing was perfect. The experience has helped us understand e-governance projects and needs better,” says Pranav Pandya, founder director and chairman, Dev IT.

But working in this vertical has not been easy. Initially, when it set out to implement related projects, a crunch in technically skilled staff was an impediment. Pandya and his team worked around the issue by developing an in-house skill-set incubation center. “We studied the shortcomings of rookies and encouraged them to train at our technology up-gradation incubation centre,” says Pandya. Ever since, the SI has implemented many e-governance projects in partnership with bigwigs like Adobe, Oracle, and Microsoft to address customers issues across India and overseas.

The Gujarat government’s initiative to ensure that all departments are IT-enabled has helped e-governance focused integrators like Dev IT flourish, claims Pandya.

Its implementations include infrastructure managed services such as remote infrastructure managed services (RIMS) and facility managed services (FMS). The company has extended these implementation to the Rajasthan government too. “National e-governance plan (NeGP) has a lot of projects and services meant for the public sector that require handholding, implementation, and modification of the IT infrastructure. We provide the IT services required in all those projects,” says Pandya.

Software-based IT implementations in the two states have helped it clock Rs 35 crore in revenue in the previous fiscal, and is expected to garner Rs 50 crore in 2012-13.

In the future, the company intends to achieve a better balance between its local and international revenues. “We are focused on expanding operations in North America, and also intend to introduce cloud-based solutions that focus on RIMS implementation,” says Pandya.
