19 Mar 2014, Kenya : Shishir Saraf, CEO, Dhanush Infotech East Africa, interviewed by CIO East Africa.

Reproduced below in its entirety is the interview of Shishir Saraf, CEO, Dhanush Infotech East Africa, by CIO East Africa, leading magazine for the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) industry in East Africa.

After having a chat with the Dhanush Infotech East Africa CEO Shishir Saraf, four words stick out from the conversation as I dig deeper into what plans the company has the region: Cost, Innovation, Efficiency and Services.

To understand Dhanush Infotech's strategy, one needs to take a closer look at the company's past as well as its recent product releases into the market.

Previously, Dhanush Infotech was mainly known for the IFMIS project by the government that was meant to bring efficiency in financial management at ministry level with the company charged with training more than 3,000 government employees across the country. From here, Dhanush has grown to become a credible company especially in training as well as in technology implementation and support.

Before laying out the business plan, the firm took its time to study the market and recognised gaps in the local market that would require capacity building. With this information, the company was able to roll out its partners solutions in a way that would also allow the solutions provider to customise the products. One plan of achieving trust was to help clients to recognise their requirements so as to make informed decisions in the areas of establishing the right solutions and the best partner to deliver the solution.

Dhanush also decentralised into the region with business units functioning independently so as to allow them achieve organisational objectives with maximum localisation. Unit executives were given leeway in making decisions regarding capacity needs and solution offering.

"We are in the business of selling solutions by gaining customer confidence. We prefer to spend money in gaining the same through complimentary services like market research, preparation of business cases as well as advising clients about the pros and cons," said Saraf.

Dhanush's partners include Oracle and Microsoft for enterprise solutions. It also provides business intelligence tools, business analytics and reporting tools while mobile phone-based solutions are under development. Among the latest products that have hit the market from Dhanush Infotech is Dactari Health, a telemedicine solution that provides remote monitoring, combines flow of information through video, clinical data and work flow information. Dactari Health, developed as a response to the scarcity of specialized doctors and data in healthcare centres, works alongside other solutions including hospital management, electronic health record management and ambulance management.
