I worked for Ram at a much junior level when he was Head of Systems Technology Group in DSQ Software Ltd. He probably had the vision of Infrastructure Management Services even then (12 years ago). He is a pioneer of sorts in India. I hope he gets the funding and neccessary help to convert Maples into a successful company in the RIM/IMS market. Another person from Madras, KB Chandra made it big in this sector before the dot com burst. At that time, Indian infrastructure was not reliable and it was premature for outsourcing such critical services. With reliable power, well thought out data centres, good backbone network and last mile access for System Engineers to perform their tasks from home, India is at the prime to exploit IMS at a time when multinational companies are trying to optimize/reduce operational cost and improve efficiencies.

It would be interesting to watch how Ram capitalizes it from hereon. I wish him all the best and hope to see him compared to NRN, one day. And that day may not be far away.
