Starting with the sales department of a company, Vishwajeet Singh, CIO, Epitome Travel Solutions India, always stayed connected with his passion - computers - irrespective of his job profile. He firmly believes, "There is nothing that goes waste in life; it helps you tomorrow if not today.

After coming to core IT, I kept on exploring my previous experiences and they have finally made my journey easy. I started utilizing my previous experiences and it made my journey easy. I was not only handling IT, I was also looking after the customer's requirement from the employer's side. I have represented my employers on various platforms in both domestic and international markets."

For young CIOs, acceptance is a tough aspect as there are still 90% professionals who are older, be it the CEOs or the CIO community itself. Young CIOs come with an advantage of high energy levels and challenging attitude. "It will take time before the young CIOs are going to get accepted easily, until and unless you are working with a very large enterprise. But it is fun and I enjoy it. You get to learn many things and at times you get encouragement also," he adds.

Highlighting his plans for 2012, Singh says, "2011 was nothing different from the previous years but it was certainly encouraging. 2012 is going to be slightly tougher, since the whole world is showing negative results. We have always focused an RoI model and we will be focusing in the same direction. We had worked on server virtualization last year and in the current year we will focus on desktop virtualization."
