“Tarun joins us at a time of exceptional possibility in Asia and we are leaning on his experience and leadership to grow Apptio’s presence across the region. CIOs are being asked to do more with less, and to be accountable for their spending. Apptio equips them with the data and insights to better manage their IT investments and align them to business outcomes, through the implementation of the Technology Business Management (TBM) and FinOps disciplines,” Ben Allard, Apptio Vice President and General Manager, Asia Pacific remarked. “Tarun will be instrumental in leading the execution of Apptio’s vision and the adoption of TBM, FinOps and agile disciplines in the region,”

Kalra observes that, “Asian economies continue to witness consumption-driven growth, fueled by governmental and private enterprises driven capital expenditure (CapEx) expansion cycles. Organizations that are ‘born in the cloud’ are altering customer engagement models and technology consumption patterns. For that reason, cloud computing is the cornerstone of technology innovation, ensuring organizational resilience.”

He adds, “Clients are seeking frictionless engagement models to give them the ability to scale new products and services to support their market expansion strategies. That requires nimble and agile technology organizations.”

Kalra expects growth in the technology sector to continue with further advances being made in digital banking, healthtech, insurtech, and ecommerce. He says “Such organizations, along with large enterprises and government departments are grappling with ballooning technology costs while struggling with a limited view on a single pane and single source of truth on their returns on technology investments. Apptio is uniquely positioned with a proven solution to help these organizations derive deeper financial accountability and effectively allocate resources to areas of greater ROI and innovation.”
