“Build great software, make it accessible to all our customers, stay honest to what your customer needs, what the market needs, build it and they will come.”

Our guest is a prominent executive at Zoho Corporation, a global provider of enterprise software solutions. He began his impressive career at Zoho in 1996 as an engineer and TechLead and has since progressed through numerous key roles.

He was Product Manager, Director of Product Management, Director of Engineering and finally Vice President of Products before taking on the role of Managing Director for Europe in 2018.

In his various roles, he has been instrumental in developing and improving numerous products that have made Zoho a leader in the industry. Under his leadership, major software solutions have been introduced and optimized to increase the efficiency and productivity of companies worldwide.

But his vision goes far beyond technological innovation. He is passionate about sustainable business models and ethical principles. He believes in the power of synergistic ecosystems and promotes partnerships based on win-win situations.

His vision for the future of work and technology includes fostering innovation, improving user experience and creating an inclusive and collaborative work environment.

For more than 7 years, we have talked to well over 500 people in 436 episodes about what has changed and what needs to change when it comes to work.

We are absolutely certain that it is important right now. After all, the idea of “New Work” was developed during a real crisis.

What role does software play in a better way of working together?

And what exactly can we learn from someone who has been working at one of the leading SaaS companies for almost 30 years?

We are looking for methods, role models, experiences, tools and ideas that bring us closer to the core of New Work! In addition, from the very beginning we have been concerned with the question of whether everyone can really find and live what they really, really want at heart. You are at “On the Way to New Work” – today with Sridhar Iyengar
