SHESHAGIRI ANEGONDI, Founder & CEO
Sheshagiri has 23 years of experience in the India IT industry working in global organisations such as Zenith , Digital Equipment, Compaq & Oracle. His longest stint was in Oracle Corporation where he worked for nearly 16 years – the last assignment being Vice President of the Technology Business Unit in India.
Sheshagiri is arguably amongst the best in software license contracting in India. His understanding of licensing metrics and their usage in appropriate situations, his knowledge of contractual clauses in different licensing engagements, his experience of techno-commercial negotiations are immense by virtue of his handling and advising on an estimated couple of thousand negotiations in his long career.
As an independent consultant, since August 2014, Sheshagiri has overseen software procurements of nearly $10m at contracted prices saving customers more than three times that amount in excess software expenditure.

We want customers to spend less on purchasing software whilst constantly being in compliance with their contractual obligations.
Design Principles: Products & Services from Rythium will not just be "good enough" when compared to others globally. We will be thorough to the last detail, amazingly simple to use and have almost zero implementation times.
Integrity: All publisher related information will from publicly available resources. We will seek to obtain or utilize confidential information. Only general skills acquired by our employees during employment elsewhere will be deemed acceptable use.
