Now, I know there are quite a few Sanjay Kumar’s in the world (1.4M pages, to be exact), but when I saw this in the Wall Street Journal a few days ago, I was quite taken aback. I thought, why not take this opportunity to update my profile and share my background and show how it uniquely positions me to tackle the mission that SimplifyThis is trying to address. With that in mind, I have updated my profile (link to the right) with the following details about my background:
Sanjay is a co-founder of SimplifyThis. Prior to starting SimplifyThis, he worked at Microsoft Corporation and i2 Technologies. He specializes in designing business applications for customer management, accounting and supply-chain management. During his time at Microsoft, Sanjay worked in the Business Solutions division where he held several engineering, product management, and senior advisory positions. He led the efforts to build online services for small businesses, decision support software for Microsoft’s ERP line of products, and also worked as an executive advisor to shape the roadmap of Microsoft Dynamics line of products. At i2 Technologies, Sanjay held several senior product management positions for supply-chain management products. Prior to joining i2, he was working as a engineer with Sabre Decision Technologies (Now Sabre Airline Solutions). Sanjay received an MS in Engineering from Penn State University and a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering from IIT Bombay.
I hope this clarifies the situation and please don’t hesitate to sign up for our beta. (Yes, that was a shameless plug).
