Mr. Ivaturi Vijaya Kumar serves as Consultant Chief Technology Officer of Crayon Data Pte Ltd., and advises in the areas of Big data analytics & Cloud, Ad-hoc networks & Mobile devices, Augmented Realty & Synthetic spaces and Citizen IT systems.
Mr. Kumar served as Chief Technology Officer for Wipro Tech. He is an active Member of Indian Angel Network. He worked for almost a year and a half in developing features on PBX.
Ivaturi worked for about one and a half years on DRDO projects and then with Electronics Corporation of India Limited (ECIL) and the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). He built a test jig for anti-braking systems in light combat aircraft for Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL).
In 2012, he was introduced to his co-founders of Crayon Data, Suresh Shankar, and Srikant Sastri, through Indian Angel Network and friends.
Initially, they wanted him to help on outsourcing product development but later realised that their vision for the firm was so prophetic that it requires in-house development. They set up the engineering team in Chennai and Singapore.
Going by behaviorial economics and cognitive science, the team at Crayon Data felt that buying is an orthogonal dimension. The behavioral economics view is based on Roman philosophy – 'you’re what you do’, which is the foundation of all transaction analytics.
