Tell us about what inspired you to establish decoding it solutions and What motivates you today as an entrepreneur?
I was a commerce student, I did my first computer course in 1998, and eventually got interested more in IT. Right then, I knew IT was where I wanted to be.

Our Solution Designing, Dedicated Support Infrastructure, And Consultancy Set Us Apart From The Rest. We Always Make Sure That Our Customers Are Able To Make The Best Use Of Their It
After observing the IT industry from a close range for so many years, I couldn’t get over the fact that many companies struggled to get quality after-sales support and genuine consultancy. So, In 2014, with this vision of providing sincere, quality IT support and consultancy, I started Decoding IT Solutions with my co-founder(and wife), Monami B. Saluja.
Our biggest motivation is that we can make the IT Infrastructure stronger, better, and more reliable for as many companies as we possibly can.

What Makes Your Company Stand Out From The Rest In The Market?

Our solution designing, dedicated support infrastructure, and consultancy set us apart from the rest. We always make sure that our customers are able to make the best use of their IT.

What’s The Success Mantra That Constantly Helps You Arrive At Positive Outcomes?
The answer is in your question - the word ‘positive.’ When we think and feel positive all the time, we attract positive outcomes. We face new challenges on a regular basis problems that might crop out of nowhere. But if we can keep our calm and face it with positivity, we will continue to grow.
What’s The Future Conceived For Decoding It Solutions?
We live in a world of Digitization, where IT drives businesses forward. For business owners, some times it is difficult to find the right team to work on their IT infrastructure, and sometimes it is difficult to identify the right solutions for them. Hence,we would like to establish ourselves as a true IT Partner for customers, be it for Improving IT Security, enforcing zero-trust network access, simplifying the management of IT Operations, or data center upgrade with the latest technologies. We look forward to becoming the most favored brand in the Managed IT and customer services segment, globally.
What Advice Would You Give To The Upcoming Entrepreneurs In TheIndustry?
Usually, when we start a new venture, we get very excited and tend to make a mistake of considering it a cakewalk. But entrepreneurship is never a bed of roses, roses are there, of course, but it has its fair share of thorns too. So, grit, perseverance, and an undying will to succeed should be there. I think, before starting their entrepreneurial journey, one should identify their strength and passion. There will be many lows in business. We should hold on to our passion at such times, and we will surely find ways to tide over the problems.
