Sharad conducted a short focused review of the Central Market Operating System for the non household water market to improve confidence in delivery and the market opening on time. I was highly impressed with the quality of the insight and recommendations given the complexity and timescales involved. I found Sharad to be very professional in his approach and look forward to working with him again in the future. I fully endorse his work and would highly recommend his counsel to anyone with a mission critical programme looking to improve confidence in delivery or in need of a fresh perspective.
Gauri has been working with Sharad Agrawal of Cloud Pursuit, who has been providing consultancy and support services for our IT infrastructure projects for the last few months. Throughout the engagement, what stood out for us over and above the level of professionalism and expertise demonstrated by Sharad was the dedication and passion that shine through everything that he does. We are sure that Cloud Pursuit will continue to remain trusted partners and add value to our organisation as we engage on future initiatives.

Sharad impressed us with his hands-on management and rigour in executing the offshore engagement. He created clarity and visibility in the midst of considerable uncertainty, consulted, enrolled, built trust and managed stakeholders through the transition, while balancing perspectives and conflicts of interest between disparate teams.
Sharad is definitely the sort of IT leader/CIO you need backing you up when you have a major business-critical deliverable and tough deadlines to meet. He rises to any challenge and will not let you down. I have been impressed by his 'can do' attitude and ability to innovate to overcome challenges and constraints. Sharad’s expertise is not limited only to IT or Telecom services … his experience is rich and varied encompassing many activities which are essential to the successful development and management of a business. Perhaps more importantly, it is his interpersonal and team-building skills which single him out as one of the best leaders and a great asset!
