Singapore: Apptio, the provider of technology business management (TBM) applications has appointed Tarun Kumar Kalra as Regional Vice President for Asia.
As Regional VP, Kalra will focus on creating incremental value for Apptio’s customers and partners and expanding the company’s presence across Asia.
“Tarun joins us at a time of exceptional possibility in Asia and we are leaning on his experience and leadership to grow Apptio’s presence across the region,” said Ben Allard, Apptio VP and GM, Asia Pacific.
“Tarun will be instrumental in leading the execution of Apptio’s vision and the adoption of TBM, FinOps and agile disciplines in the region,” added Allard.
According to Kalra, Asian economies continue to witness consumption-driven growth, fueled by governmental and private enterprises-driven capital expenditure (CapEx) expansion cycles.
“Organisations that are ‘born in the cloud’ are altering customer engagement models and technology consumption patterns. For that reason, cloud computing is the cornerstone of technology innovation, ensuring organisational resilience,” said Kalra.
“Clients are seeking frictionless engagement models to give them the ability to scale new products and services to support their market expansion strategies. That requires nimble and agile technology organisations,” added Kalra.
“Apptio is uniquely positioned with a proven solution to help these organisations derive deeper financial accountability and effectively allocate resources to areas of greater ROI and innovation,” noted Kalra.
