NEW REPORT: The State of CLM and AI-Powered Contract Intelligence

Cloudifying business

May 3, 2013: Good things happen when creativity and free thought are allowed to flourish. In Seattle, Washington, where innovation is not taboo, Icertis was able to materialize from a shared dream. Samir Bodas, Monish Darda and Unmesh Bhathija believed the delightfully disruptive cloud could be used to improve business processes, and they were right. Icertis, was born in 2009 and has since blossomed into a successful Cloud Software Vendor (CSV). Icertis caused a stir and broke tradition when it developed products in the ERP Surround space by leveraging the cloud; fortunately it also broke the shackles of tedious, tiresome and obscenely priced enterprise software. The company provides software to manage contracts (for banks, retailers, insurance, manufacturing etc.) and transportation management software for companies in the logistics sector.

Samir Bodas, CEO and co-founder of Icertis, holds an MBA from Wharton School of Business. Monish Darda, CTO and co-founder has a BE in Mechanical Engineering and obtained a Master degree from Florida Atlantic University and Unmesh Bhathija, COO is also a Chartered Financial Analyst and co-founded Websym Technologies.
The beginning

Commenting on the origins of Icertis, Darda said, Enterprise software has traditionally been difficult to build, hard to deploy and expensive to maintain and painful to adopt; think of an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software implementation, for instance. The cloud was opening up opportunities for a new breed of enterprise apps, ones that are easy to develop, deploy, manage, integrate, and which dont break the enterprises bank. He added, The fertile Seattle environment helped, especially since two of the worlds top public cloud providers, Microsoft and Amazon, are headquartered there. The Seattle connection continues as the company has roped in Rob Strickland who was formerly the Senior Vice President (SVP) and Chief Information Officer (CIO) for T-Mobile as its strategic advisor.
