How Virtusa is driving digital transformation with the pace and passion of a startup delivered with expert execution on a global scale


Today’s businesses require change at a scale and speed that defies traditional ways of working. Virtusa sparks that change through digital transformations that deliver deep digital engineering and industry expertise through client-specific and integrated agile approaches to technology.


Founded in 1996 and headquartered in Southborough, Massachusetts in the United States, Virtusa helps businesses move forward faster by drawing on its engineering roots to combine deep industry expertise and frictionless technology delivery. With over 30,000 employees working across a global footprint of offices and delivery centres in the Americas, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East, Virtusa also boasts a strong partner ecosystem including Adobe, Azure, Google Cloud, Pega, Salesforce, and a variety of Fintech and Insurtech startups. Empowering its clients to change, disrupt, and unlock new value, Virtusa champions a culture of collaboration with today’s most renowned technology leaders.

“Our journey from product engineering to digital engineering was seamless,” recalls Seetharaman ‘Seethu’ Krishnamoorthy, Business Unit Head – Consumer & Manufacturing Industries.

Looking back on Virtusa’s transition, he highlights its flexible approach to innovation across the digital space. “Whether it is in terms of handling data in the cloud, or the development of analytics solutions, we have been able to move ahead in the market. Today, we are reaping the rewards of having invested in our partners across data and cloud services.”

Krishnamoorthy recalls that Virtusa’s nimble approach to innovation on key early projects with IBM and a multinational media conglomerate helped the company develop its reputation and allowed it to expand the scope of its portfolio of work. “The early strength of our offering allowed Virtusa to become a pure play digital organisation,” he adds.

Helping businesses transform

“We embed innovation in everything we do,” says Naresh Prabhu Ramaswamy, Vice President for Digital at Virtusa. Echoing Krishnamoorthy, he sees an open-minded approach to change as vital when delivering solutions to enhance personalised customer experience, empower digital transformation and expand technology platforms.

“When assessing a client’s needs we look at four key areas: Is there a complex customer experience to be navigated? Has there been broken trust in the past? Are there challenges with access? Which intermediaries are involved?

“We look for ways to mitigate the challenges of these four areas,” he continues. “As service providers and system integrators we are agnostic and can help our customers optimise their toolsets to get the best out of leading solutions from AWS, Salesforce, Pega and more. For example, we’re working with a leader in the CPG industry keen to automate their business processes. We’re helping them to find the right blend with tools from UiPath, Automation Anywhere, Blue Prism, WorkFusion and RPA software from Pega.
