Origins and business thinking

Business model

Pramati builds independent companies focused on profitable, well-defined markets. Our model works because we increase the probability of success for our companies.

1. Ideation

Ideas emerge from the market and our existing customers experiences. They often sprout at the intersection of technologies –for example, enterprise collaboration and social — where we spot un-met needs beyond the scope of solutions on offer.

2. Startup

Every startup receives seed capital, gets staffed by a team with proven chemistry and uses the technology infrastructure and stack Pramati already has in place. Additionally, it gains access to expertise in cloud, social, mobile, and other areas of institutional competence.

3. Launch

When a business unit gains sufficient market traction, typically through a product with early-stage customers, it is spun off as an independent entity.

Critical Pramati employees form the founding team, typically in engineering and product development. Pramati makes a capital investment in return for an equity stake in the new company. The company operates independently, but still has access to Pramati resources – now at arms-length.

4. Growth

As the company grows, it hires critical executives, typically in marketing, sales, and business divisions. Pramati companies share executive networks, creating a larger base of customers and potential hires. They leverage common service functions like PR, legal, corporate development, and HR. Companies may independently raise additional capital.

5. Exit

Companies create their own exits. Pramati founders play an active role in planning exits. Our track record and market presence generate inbound inquiries. Networking and prior deal experience move things quickly.

Origins

With over two decades of technology and business experience, the Pramati founders have had the unique opportunity of being part of Indian IT right from its inception. Pramati was founded in 1998 by Jay Pullur and Vijay Pullur in Hyderabad, India. Founded as a web technology company, Pramati cut its teeth in enterprise-class web infrastructure technology. The Pramati Application Server was its flagship product that hit the market along with offerings from BEA Systems, IBM and Oracle. Initially adopted by the rapidly growing financial services industry in India, by 2001 the Pramati app server was installed by each of India’s top 10 banks.

Building on this early success, Pramati started to invest in a number of critical enterprise technologies, create independent companies, and going on to become one of India’s leading software product companies. The company employs consulting and delivery teams across three global locations.

Transactions

Pramati invests in technologies that are at the growth stage, combining products and services to develop entrepreneurial models, and fostering an ecosystem in which new ideas emerge and grow. Here are some key initiatives.

Ethos

  • Culture

    At Pramati, our processes serve as the floor, not ceiling, of how you can best do things. You are not limited at Pramati.
    We are a multi-cultural environment that uniquely combines creativity, attitude, and strength across borders. We believe in diversity and global outlook. We bring talented people together to inspire one another and collaborate freely. Our people take pride in the software they build, the customers they serve, and the team they are a part of. Freedom, risk taking, and sense of collective achievement fuel the culture of innovation you’ll find at Pramati.

    Ethics, integrity, and fair play have created an environment of ownership. Our work culture shows remarkable passion for excellence and exemplary cases of discretionary effort.

  • Citizenship

    Pramati believes corporate social responsibility is an integral part of being a successful business. As responsible corporate citizens, we are committed to doing our part in solving certain important challenges faced by society. By applying our technology, innovation, and financial resources, we hope to contribute to positive change.

    People are our priority and we owe much of our success to having maintained this philosophy. Since our early days as a company, employee and customer satisfaction have been at the heart of our achievements. We bring the interests of employees and customers into all our business decisions.

    We believe that by focusing on one particular area of concern-education-we can contribute to improving lives and making a positive difference in our community.

    Our initiative engages with experts and citizens in the local and global community by supporting efforts that strengthen education and improve the social fabric, confidence, and efficiency.

    The initiative is two-pronged. The Foundation Program focuses on strengthening young minds that have a passion in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) – understanding how to solve complex business problems as well as global concerns about shrinking natural resources and environment. The Advanced Program is more specific. It identifies and supports potential high achievers in various fields of arts, science, and sports-targeting people who may not otherwise have access to infrastructure, technology, teachers, and professionals.

    Our goals, commitment, and performance ensure that our business ventures operate both responsibly and sustainably while contributing to the communities where we work.

  • Pursuit

    Pursuit is the name we’ve given to a group of activities we engage in to inspire and support the development of new and exceptional ideas.

    In striving for excellence and innovation, we interact with academic and research institutions around the world through facilitation of research, fellowships and internships, and participation in academic activities in areas related to our work.

    Pursuit Fellowships and Internships support individuals pursuing higher studies or advanced research through travel grants, stipends, or awards. Recipients are free to pursue projects or academic programs of their choice without any commitments to the company.

    The Pursuit Labs Program works to establish a strong bridge between industry and academia by extending our expertise, experience, and facilities to enhance academic or research programs.
