Jayant has been managing IT infrastructure in the power domain for the past
16 years. He specializes in Project Management, SCADA, Distribution automation
including Real-time systems, Networking, MIS and e-Governance for Utilities. He
took his first challenging assignment in 1993 when he was posted at NTPC, Dadri.
The company had decided to phase out the outdated legacy systems and replace
them with enterprise-wide on-line integrated database system. The entire
exercise involved extensive process re-engineering, data migration, software
testing, quality control checks, system integration and training. Unfazed by the
challenge, his team conceived the idea of having a data center, set up multiple
RISC-based servers (considered high-end in those days) and connected remote
business units on a heterogeneous network of Optical fiber, VSAT and Microwave.

How did the end-users take it? It was a culture shock for many users, but
gradually after intensive training, they became more and more conversant with
the new systems.

A thorough family man, he loves to play tennis and go swimming with his kids.
He longs to take his family on a long vacation to a seaside resort and indulge
in water sports–backwater cruise, snorkeling and parasailing. He enjoys reading
Jeffrey Archer, Dan Brown, Naipaul and historical fictions.
