In a new twist on venture labs: People Tech Group forms captive venture lab, spins off Ubikite
The first spin off simplifies complex IT tasks significantly improving productivity of IT teamsREDMOND, WA, USA, July 12, 2019;
Venture foundries provide fertile ground for disruptive ideas to take shape, usually supported by venture capital firms who recruit management teams with domain-specific knowledge to lead their foundry’s startups. But consulting firms that are established in their field are already well familiar with their customer’s needs and have the market-tested subject matter experts already onboard, bringing a working knowledge of their customer’s challenges. These firms can leverage this experience to bring solutions to respond to those needs.
One consulting firm says it’s uniquely-equipped to handle a brand-new need that will soon be shared by companies of all shapes and sizes across the globe, that is the management of Microsoft Windows as more and more infrastructure, apps, and data move to the cloud. Tom Malone, Entrepreneur-in-Residence at People Tech Group’s Triangulum Labs said, “We have a team that has literally 50 combined years understanding what IT Professionals want in the Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) and Windows-as-a-Service (WaaS) space, so when we built our startup Ubikite’s solutions, they were grounded in real-world knowledge.
“During the build-out of Microsoft’s Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD), we wrote the Powershell WVD scripts used for initial field trials. Armed with this knowledge, we built Ubikite DaaS Manager to provide a dashboard that makes deploying and managing WVD environments simple and intuitive,” says Bob Duffy, CEO at Ubikite. “Plus our years of experience helping our client’s migrate to the latest Window’s offering provided us the insight to create Ubikite WaaS Manager, a dashboard providing IT Professionals the tools they need to discover, deploy and monitor their shift to Microsoft’s Windows-as-a-Service”.
The new venture studio will launch its suite of upstart tools at the upcoming touchstone event for the Microsoft partner community, Inspire, in Las Vegas next week. Several additional new ventures are also being explored by Triangulum Labs, Malone explained.
“Ubikite’s tools are coming to the market just as Microsoft’s Windows-as-a-Service and Windows Virtual Desktop are being deployed across enterprises. These tools are ready to help IT Professionals navigate the shift to the modern Workplace,” said Malone.

Microsoft’s cloud-first focus impacts companies stuck with legacy workplace technology
Ubikite – a Redmond based startup from People Tech Group launches a suite of tools to help them manage this changeREDMOND, WA, USA, July 9, 2019
Microsoft is now fully-focused on the cloud, sending a disruptive ripple through many companies still maintaining legacy workplace technology. The move also opens a new opportunity for solution providers with the expertise to guide IT professionals through the cumbersome process of modernization.
Consulting firm veterans in Redmond are among those leading the way. PeopleTech Group is spinning out a new product development venture dedicated specifically to filling this emerging need.
“Our customers are facing the reality that the desktop operating systems they are familiar with are changing, driven largely by very real malware threats. Microsoft has announced the end of Windows 7 security patches and support in 2020, and Windows 10 updates will begin to happen more rapidly. IT professionals need tools to help them manage this change. We formed Ubikite to provide our clients automated help for managing this change,” says Vishwa Prasad, CEO of People Tech Group.
Similar start-ups have popped up across the United States, responding by promising to shepherd companies onto the cloud with one or more proprietary IaaS solutions—e.g. CloudJumper, Nerdio, and Frame—but few provide solutions for infrastructures managed exclusively on Microsoft Azure, WVD, and WaaS.
“With Ubikite tools, both on-prem Windows 10 desktops managed under WaaS and virtual desktops on WVD become much more manageable. IT professionals can become instant experts on WaaS and WVD, completing hours-worth of work in seconds with almost no learning curve,” said Prasad. “That is the power of Ubikite’s dashboard, automation and monitoring solutions. Enterprise users as well as Service Providers can use these tools to accelerate their move to Microsoft’s Modern Desktop”.

People Tech Group reorganizes into three groups: Enterprise Consulting, New Ventures and IT Staffing.
Redmond, WA – July 8, 2019:
Enterprise companies recognize that they must transform to remain competitive as cloud, AI, mobile, social and IoT technology innovations shift their markets. The knowledge that they must become more nimble is driving their search for expertise with deep technical expertise of these change factors, the proficiency to innovate the solutions and the enterprise savvy to deploy them. People Tech Group has built its reputation on its ability to serve Enterprise with creative, efficient and durable solutions in this dynamic environment.
People Tech Group (PTG) has fostered the development of teams of specialists that have delivered successful Digital Transformation and Enterprise Automation initiatives for companies like General Motors, Microsoft, Amazon and Stanford University. In doing so, PTG has also built products that support these solutions and has developed staffing expertise to attract talent. Focusing teams of technical experts on the needs of the Enterprise requires different skills than scaling product ventures or staffing, so PTG is spinning out its enterprise consultancy from its staffing and new venture initiatives. With this reorganization, the enterprise consulting group will be positioned to aggressively expand its footprint across North America.
“Our enterprise customers recognize the value we deliver helping them deploy leading edge technologies across their organizations. These technical experts need seasoned industry veterans to lead them and to help our customers transform their products and back office systems”, says Vishwa Prasad, CEO of People Tech Group.
PTG has also created the new venture investing group, Triangulum Labs, while retaining PTG’s traditional IT Services and Staffing group. “Triangulum Labs has evolved into a full-fledged venture foundry providing early stage companies an environment that is conducive to fostering disruptive ideas and bringing them to market”, says Prasad. “Triangulum has a stable of well positioned startups that will be launching in the coming year. You will be hearing more about these exciting companies as they complete minimum viable products and move out into their markets”. This reorganization will allow Prasad to focus his energies into the emerging new venture business. Prasad will be transitioning full-time out of the consulting business and focusing on working with new ventures.
The enterprise consulting unit will be the new parent company of Ramp Group, CodeSmart and FyrSoft, companies acquired by PTG over the last several years. These brands will continue in the markets they serve but will be organized under the new management of the enterprise consulting unit.
“The enterprise consulting group will focus on automation in the enterprise”, states Prasad, “this means continuing to attract and develop deep technical expertise in advanced data technologies, artificial intelligence and user experience, while also retaining our core expertise in enterprise solutions”.
“Driving this reorganization is the desire to create additional value”, continues Prasad. “As part of this, we will be creating equity sharing structures in the form of management option pools that will be used to attract architects, solution specialists and subject matter experts, as well as the management talent needed to lead the organizations”.

People Tech in Top 100 Oracle vendors list of CIO Review Journal
CIO Review, a reputed technology journal, has interviewed the honorable CEO Mr. Vishwa Prasad as it announced People Tech Group as featured vendor in its list of 100 Oracle Solution Providers 2014. The journal has covered many aspects of the firm as a technology and platform provider for their customers as a favorite Oracle vendor. It has also developed a "sizable inventory of customized analytical tools" that are used for the most optimum ERP and technology upgrade for its clients to fit their underlying business needs.
100 Most Promising Oracle Solution Providers
Oracle is the world's leading supplier of software for information management and is best known for its sophisticated relational database products which are used in Fortune 1000 corporations. It is no secret that Oracle solutions and products are at the heart of many enterprises across the world. Be it running financials, Server and Storage Systems, Middleware, Engineered Systems; Oracle is the knight in shining armor for every CIO.
Oracle has its reach in the Engineering and Construction, Financial Services, Healthcare, Insurance, Life Sciences, Oil and Gas, public sector amongst others. Products such the Oracle Hyperion, E-business Suite, Oracle DB, Fusion Sales Cloud, Fusion HCM and many others form the core of the enterprises ecosystem.
Although for most of the 35 years since its founding, Oracle has been firmly fixated on the on-premises software market. Today, the company that only a few years ago marginalized the promise of cloud computing is now firmly entrenched in the SaaS camp, and even goes so far as to say that its cloud business is key to its success moving forward.
In this changing environment, the downside of being such a giant is that a prospective customer would need to sift through a huge stack of products to narrow down on the one that suits their business. Today’s CIOs are on the lookout for partners who are leading consulting and solutions providers with strong business acumen, industry focused consultants and practices, change management skills, and tools built for specific industries. Furthermore, Oracle clients desire for fully managed solutions from firms with an “asset heavy” footprint, global data presence and strong skills around infrastructure management.
The Industry giant partners with many vendors big and small, ranging from multinational corporations to small players to specialist providers. Existing within this universe of Oracle partners are a select few who are above the league. And through this edition of CIOReview, we will help clients get more insights into the capabilities of the major global service providers who are strong in Oracle technologies.
As a prelude to CIOReview’s 100 Most Promising Oracle Solutions Providers 2014, our selections panel the capabilities of thousands of vendors in this space that have skills to tackle complex challenges. The companies featured have showcased an in-depth expertise in delivering integrated and innovative technologies to streamline operations across the Oracle landscape.
