Bangalore: US-based Workato, the enterprise automation provider has formally launched its Indian subsidiary. The move comes after Workato’s recent acquisition of Chennai based Rails Data – an application connector firm for an undisclosed amount. It will leverage India’s large pool of engineering talent to bolster and set up its connector factory.

With its formal entry into the Indian market, Workato intends to be a key solution provider and partner to support Indian enterprises in their digital transformation journey.

“Workato is excited to formally enter the India market through our Workato India entity. Workato’s vision is to create a powerful no-code integration and automation platform to enable millions of creators or builders to drive innovation and accelerate transformation for companies globally,” said Vijay Tella, Workato CEO and Co-Founder.

Banking on India’s technology ecosystem, the Mountain View, California headquartered company expects the extraordinary growth momentum to continue. It plans to invest in a talent pool, robust training programs and a strong partner network.

“We see India, with its vast pool of talent, as being central to achieving this vision. Our team in India is all geared up to address this exciting market opportunity,” added Tella.

In terms of its plans in India, the company is building an engineering centre to attract talent in the automation space. It is setting up a vibrant academic and early-stage program to groom talent and also working with key Indian companies, leveraging global best practices in automation. Further, it is deepening strategic partnerships with India’s ecosystem of system integrators (SIs) and technology providers.

The company plans to significantly grow and expands its operation in India under the leadership of Sandeep Menon, MD – India. Menon comes with deep experience of having managed significant growth ventures at IBM and Cognizant and is plugged into the vibrant new technologies and startup ecosystem in India.

“India is going through unprecedented change as it recovers from the pandemic,” said Menon.

“Given that organisations in India are seeking to become globally competitive, driving productivity and efficiency will be crucial, and end-to-end automation solutions will help businesses differentiate, innovate and elevate their digital transformation,” added Menon.

Workato raised over $200 million in Series E funding last November, increasing its valuation to $5.7 billion.
