Dallas, TX – January 13, 2016 – FORTIUM PARTNERS, the world’s fastest-growing provider of technology leadership services, today announced that Alok Tyagi, a digital business champion and technology leader for market-leading global enterprise software products, has joined Fortium’s Software practice. Tyagi brings more than 30 years of hands-on technology leadership experience in product strategy, product management, design and development of software products that serve Fortune 1000 customers.
Prior to joining Fortium, Tyagi enjoyed a linear career progression as an expert in every aspect of the product spectrum for enterprise software solutions providers like CA Technologies, Sage, Oracle, PeopleSoft and JDEdwards. He has frequently launched new products, grown existing portfolios, built strong agile organizations and championed digital transformations. He is often on the cutting edge of new innovation, and is leading the charge toward machine learning and predictive analytics while helping businesses develop lasting cloud and mobile platforms that support go-to-market product strategies. In his most recent role as senior VP of business strategy for CA Technologies, he held P&L responsibility for IT management, automation and analytics, generating $700 million in revenue.
“There has never been a greater need for experienced technology leadership in SaaS and commercial software development than there is today. We couldn’t be more thrilled to add Alok to the growing roster of world-class software CTOs that make up Fortium’s Software practice,” said Burke Autrey, Fortium’s President, COO, and Software practice leader. “But the real winners are the SaaS executives, Boards, and Private Equity investors who have on-demand access to world-class SaaS CTOs for advisory, due-diligence, interim, and fractional roles. The ability to engage a seasoned SaaS expert like Alok to focus on, and solve, your toughest SaaS challenges tomorrow is the hallmark of Fortium’s brand and why we’re growing so rapidly.”
“Technology product development is one of the toughest functions in any company because innovation requires massive investments of time, money and R&D, and there’s still no guarantee of product success or sustainability. Not to mention the rapidly changing nature of product development that’s underway due to innovations like machine learning and analytics. That’s where a product strategist like Alok can make all the difference,” said Tim McCracken, Fortium Chairman and CEO. “Alok’s repeat experience in building commercially successful products with large companies that serve global brands makes him a top expert in his field. His expertise is the perfect complement to our roster of large corp CIOs.
“The pace of innovation and digital disruption is happening so much in every industry that today practically every company is a software company. We’re all becoming more connected and the amount of data we’re generating impacts almost everything we do. Businesses that specialize in developing software products and solutions are more aware of this shift than ever,” said Tyagi. “Solutions providers must remain at the edge of these transformations in order to remain relevant and desirable to customers. I joined Fortium Partners because the firm helps guide companies to make the technology changes needed to grow and thrive in pace with these changes. I am thrilled to join my partners in solving the problems that arise as we race toward a more connected economy.”
Tyagi holds an MBA from Colorado University and a bachelor’s degree in computer engineering from Regional Engineering College in India.
