Aditya Garg CEO and Founder Centilytics

Centilytics is an intelligent cloud management platform (CMP), which helps organisations using public clouds to manage, secure, and optimise their entire cloud under one roof. It builds a meaningful picture of their entire infrastructure and breaks down the complex cloud billing into actionable insights. The company’s expertise lies in cloud computing, big data analytics and AI/ML.

A StatX accelerated company, the core team includes Aditya Garg, Najmul Hoque, Shruti Agnihotri, and Henry Wilkinson. Currently, it is based out of the US and has an R&D Center in India, covering the US and India markets. The company has won large projects and some of its major customers are Lenovo, NASSCOM, WittyFeed, The Wire, Cigniti, etc.

Centilytics has an all-in-one analytics console which helped a media giant fine-tune its cost allocation process and gave it complete visibility into its cloud infrastructure. Apart from this, an advisory giant was able to save 20 per cent of its cloud expenditure in the first three months, with its intelligent reporting and resource tracking systems. Centilytics helped a software company reduce its cloud costs by 30 per cent with RI planner and resource rightsizing. Another recent win was when a large internet media company improved its security posture with comprehensive set of best practices, compliance recommendations, security audits and advanced reporting.

Speaking about the growth, Aditya Garg, CEO and Founder, Centilytics, says, “We have seen 10X growth in the last two years where we sky-rocketed from just a four-people startup to a 30 plus workaholics/workhorses organisation, now managing over 10 million of cloud consumption for our customers across the globe.” Sharing the initial hiccups during the formation of the company, Najmul Hoque, Strategy and Alliance head, Centilytics, says, “It just takes the right amount of hype to set a trend without deep diving. Though cloud is the new normal for everyone, cloud management platform is something new in the head space of IT decision makers/influencers. Establishing Centilytics as a go-to-brand in such a scenario is a challenge.”

Future roadmap
Moving forward from a technical standpoint, the company is introducing Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and VMware. As part of the growth vision, Centilytics has set a plan to be participating in events this year for branding.
