BigLeap Solutions is not a  venture that was built based on endless iteration and revisions of excel based business plans and ROI calculations. We are passionate technologists who enjoyed successful careers in various software companies. We decided to use the entire gamut of our knowledge and experience to help people and organizations achieve their technology ideas / goals.

Through our consulting and mentoring offerings, we set out to share our experiences and the numerous lessons we have learnt the hard way, in order to help our clients realise the promise of technology – one client at a time, one participant at a time. And, it has been an successful and an exciting journey so far!

The BigLeap Spirit

As Mentors

We understand fully well that, when it comes to technology, depth of knowledge if as important, if not more important that breadth of knowledge. One needs to learn to focus on trees without losing track of the forest. Hence, we don’t just coach our participants on technology, we strive to inspire them to aim higher, to look at the big picture. We not only teach them the What and the How, but strive to make them understand the Why.

As Consultants

When it comes to our consulting engagements, we do not let our passion for technology prevent us from doing what is right from a business perspective. We know that technology can only be a enabler and not a replacement. With business needs as the main drivers, we strive to arrive at a technology solution that best suits those needs. Our enthusiasm to solve challenging problems innovatively has positively impacted every aspect of our clients’ performance.
