The UC World is Flat
When I was young, India was a mystical place of elephants and snake charmers. Turns out there were also a lot of really good schools and students there too. The gap between our great countries has narrowed over the years. Especially in tech. As the US tech sector grew it frequently turned to India for talent.
It is common now to find Indian raised professionals in US technology companies – and many have done exceedingly well. Last year Satya Nadella was appointed as Microsoft’s CEO. It may be lonely at the top, but he has plenty of compatriots. Vinod Dham of Intel is known as the father of the Pentium chip; Sundar Pichai at Google oversees Android, Chrome, and Apps; Padmasree Warrior is CTO at Cisco.
India has a long history in technology. Jagadish Chandra Bose (1858-1937) is credited with inventing the first radios – years before Marconi. He is not well known partly because he was opposed to patents – ahead of his time.
This post recognizes some of the most influential US-based Indian executives in enterprise communications and collaboration (in alphabetical order).
