Patni Computer Systems


Chairman & CEO: Narendra K. Patni
They’re successful, but they don’t want to boast about it. This seems to be the case with the reticent Mumbai-based Patni Computer Systems (PCS). One of the most successful Indian IT companies, Patni was once the breeding ground for contemporary IT icons like N. R. Narayana Murthy and Nanadan Nilekani. Today, PCS has spawned a business domain that includes off-shoring, on site support and IT consulting to the best in the business, worldwide.

The organisation actually owes it existence to N. K. Patni, who in 1972 decided to start a company based in USA; and so was born Data Conversion Inc. The company was involved in converting data written on paper into a shareable magnetic form. Though based in USA, work heavily centred around its Pune office. The industry was going through a major revolution through the spread of personal computers, and so work started progressing to software development. In 1978, Data Conversion donned a new name and identity – Patni Computer Systems. As the software business caught on, the magnetic data conversion vertical was wound up.

At present, PCS has grown exponentially to 23 offices across USA, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region. It has started to cater to niche audiences in the insurance, transportation, utilities, manufacturing, banking & financial services, health care and hospitality sectors. With software development centres spread over 8 cities in India, its specialization in areas such as embedded systems, enterprise application integration and systems management only speaks volumes of its capabilities.
