Sandhata – Our History

Who we are

Sandhata is a global niche consultancy company that develops innovative and enterprise-wide DevOps-centric service propositions. We respond to business and technical challenges faced by the biggest and most complex organisations. We have a reputation for tackling the most complex issues and can optimise IT delivery across the enterprise. We aim to transform your digital business!

Sandhata has many years of experience in accelerating software delivery in complex legacy systems.

  • We deliver ground-breaking solutions to our customers, transforming their mainframes and enabling them to become lean and responsive.
  • We understand the unique challenges posed by mainframes, which make it difficult to adopt DevOps or CI/CD, as well as the common challenges experienced with distributed IT systems.
  • We bring the knowledge, experience and expertise to accelerate mainframe transformation, bringing them up to pace with the rest of the technology shops.

Sandhata was founded in the UK in 2005 by Srinivasa Alluri, Babji Vundavilli, Khalai Chelvan and Kumar Narayanan. They started delivering services in system integration, believing they could provide a better quality service than other System Integrators operating at the time.

Since then, Sandhata has expanded to offer DevOps and IT transformation services as well as system integration, more recently focusing on modernising legacy technologies. Sandhata now has employees in all corners of the globe and have delivered services to more than 20 Tier 1 organisations.
