Sponsored by Businesswire

HEAL Software Inc., the leader in the IT operations preventive healing space, today introduced its advisory board. The advisory board members include Chet Mandair, Sundi Sundaresh, Larryi Ding and Suresh Vaidyanathan. This announcement follows on the heels of the company’s recent establishment of U.S. headquarters in Santa Clara, Calif. and its second round of financial backing from Avataar Venture Partners.

HEAL is the first artificial intelligence (AI) software that enables IT operations teams to find and fix problems before they happen. Leveraging machine learning (ML) models and AI algorithms, it can perform correlations between cross-platform events, provide highly accurate capacity projections and pinpoint previously imperceptible early warning signals before a problem occurs.

“We are pleased to have the support of each of these impressive individuals during such an important growth stage for the company as we expand our footprint more deeply across the U.S. and globally,” said George Thangadurai, CEO of HEAL Software Inc. “These industry veterans each bring unique experience and will add tremendous value to the business as we continue to develop products that change the game for enterprise IT.”

The expanded advisory board works alongside HEAL’s board of directors to provide support around product direction, scaling strategies and go-to-market plans. They were selected by the board of directors, currently led by Mohan Kumar, founder and managing partner of Avataar Venture Partners; Mike Mulica, executive chairman of AlefEdge; Paddy Padmanabhan, advisor of HEAL Software Inc.; and George Thangadurai, CEO of HEAL Software Inc.
