Pioneering Virtual Technology Desktop in Software Development – OpenTurf
Brief presentation of the founders
For the past ten years, I have held leadership positions in the Middle East and Africa. Overall, I come with over twenty years of experience in technical sales roles such as general management, strategy, sales, account management, business development and product management in software, telecommunications and digital technology.
With what mission or purpose was the VTO launched?
Businesses across all industries are currently facing challenges in completing their technology projects on time. This is especially true when it comes to overcoming obstacles related to technology architecture, custom automation, custom enterprise software development, or finding the right expertise. During execution, most challenges relate to the areas of agile delivery, flexibility, reliability, maintainability, and scalability at reasonable costs. These issues add further complications in the journey of digital transformation or legacy platform upgrades.
The objective of implementing OpenTurf is to solve the technological problems that companies are facing, thus reducing the growing digital divide. Our unique VTO (Virtual Technology Office) risk and responsibility sharing approach in which we work in BOT (Build-Operate-Transfer)/BO/BT models, helps our clients gain visibility into project executions and their allows incremental operations to be performed as needed. scaled. We have developed ready-to-use (pre-built) domain independent modules, which we call digital bridges. These digital gateways enable our customers to launch their services faster and at lower cost. With us, a business will never run out of technology options, as we bring a full range of technology expertise, from on-premise to SaaS to Web 3.0.
VTO Services and USPs
In current software development models, where “the customer bears all the risk”, OpenTurf is a pioneer of the VTO strategy. The concept is popular among companies across the product development spectrum, transforming legacy systems into microservices architectures, reducing cloud-related expenses, and enabling complex third-party integrations with its highly customizable and best-fit VTO approach.
In a nutshell, our USP is to deliver substantial time, resource and economic savings when it comes to driving the transformation of conventional business practices towards the integration of technology stacks.
What is VTO, how is it different from a typical IT services company?
The notion of VTO involves deploying an engaged and skilled workforce to streamline complex technology requirements and provide superior end-user experiences in line with corporate business objectives. The VTO team functions as the extended execution arm of the CTO/Product Manager of any business. The team takes a consultative approach to identify best-fit technology stacks and follows an agile delivery approach to enable just-in-time experiments and scale; provides greater control over projects through transparent project management practices. VTO has a flexible engagement model as opposed to traditional time and material approaches used by IT services companies. A VTO model is inherently more suitable for sharing software development risk with customers. This concept allows organizations to easily scale with their business needs.

What changes in dynamics have you noticed in the Indian machine learning and machine learning market?
It’s interesting to see how companies in various industries are recognizing the promise of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). This is encouraging for the IT industry and, by extension, the entire tech ecosystem. However, before we begin to realize the full potential of these much-needed technologies, a few significant hurdles need to be overcome. Businesses should choose specific use cases where business outcomes should be clearly stated. The lack of trustworthy and reliable use case data has been a significant hurdle for the industry ever since. Much of the data now available is siled across the organization, limiting its ability to provide a complete picture to stakeholders.
That said, we’re starting to see progress in how companies learn to take advantage of AI and ML technologies, and as data becomes more comprehensive, the use cases for AI and ML will begin to produce significant results in the near future.
Q What type of expansion do you foresee in the coming years?
A. We have complete confidence in the possibilities of the gig economy since the future belongs to cutting-edge innovations that could deliver better value and customer experience. Businesses are more likely to stick with highly agile partners and give them more freedom to adapt to the ever-changing needs of their customers. At OpenTurf, we are well positioned to meet these industry needs since we can digitize our customers’ activities.
We pride ourselves on the fact that a large portion of our recurring business (over 90%) and referrals (over 80%) fuel our expansion. This demonstrates the extreme degree of customer focus that underpins our expertise, work ethic and culture. We have been able to thrive in a time when the industry is clamoring for the availability of top notch resources thanks to our focus on hybrid working cultures.
Can you tell us about your future growth projects? Do you intend to expand your current service offering?
Over the next twelve months, we intend to focus on the following areas: a) Investing in building digital bridges; b) Invest in the development of people; c) Opening of satellite offices in cities; and (d) Establish links with institutions of higher education for programs that will prepare graduate students for the job market. On each of these fronts, we have already begun to act and expect to build momentum over the coming quarters.
Additionally, while continuing to focus on our current customers and providing them with more creative solutions this fiscal year, we also hope to expand into new regions and countries.
