Founded in December 2006, Doyensys currently operates out of Texas, US, and headquarters in Chennai. Already making strides in the IT sector, Doyensys offers services in Oracle EBS, Oracle Database Administration and Application Server Administration. Under the leadership of CEO Somu Chockalingam, the company has expanded exponentially, especially in the US. With over 200 employees in the US and India, Doyensys bets on a wholesome working environment. A survey ranked Doyensys No. 19 among the top 50 Great Mid-Size Workplaces in the country for 2019. On this Chockalingam adds, “We are delighted to be recognised as a ‘Great Place to Work’ and this energises our team to do even better and pushes us to work harder to make our customers happy and satisfied.  We thank the  god for the kindness and thank our customers and employees to be with us in this wonderful journey. We are looking forward to keep working on our mission of supporting our customers.”

The evolution of Doyensys over the years is a remarkable story. “Doyensys started with three founders, who used to do consulting work for us, and today we have over 200 employees in India and the US. We have tried to retain the flat organisation culture, but at the same time, trying to bring in processes that would suit the diversified needs of the people” the CEO told BW Businessworld.

Talking about the characteristics that make Doyensys a great place to work and the thoughts on an ideal company, Chockalingam said, “We believe in a flat organisational structure with great transparency. We have also engaged an excellent coach and HR advisor Soma Valliyappan, who has been instrumental in advising us on all our people initiatives. We want Doyensys to be a company that would be a delight for the customers, and at the same time, be employee-friendly with less supervision. Doyen means ‘leader by experience’ and we want Doyensys to be at the top for the Oracle-based services. We have a long way to go, but I’m sure we are heading in the right path and we take course corrections regularly.”

“On an average, employees stay with Doyensys for four years. Currently, we have over 75 people, who have been with us for more than five years in our 13-year journey. We aspire to be a company that works for customer delight and true to our name Doyen – leader by experience. Our employees vouch for the organisation’s transparency, trust and flexibility,” explains Chockalingam.

Doyensys being a technology-based service company has a vibrant work-culture, which makes its employees culture champions. It provides innovative solutions on its Oracle platform. While the company’s primary focus is on customer satisfaction, Chockalingam, a professional in the IT field for nearly two decades, thinks that Doyensys’ philosophy allows people to work on their strength and achieve their aspirations, while allowing a healthy discourse. The company also allows people to disagree and talk their minds openly. With 20 years of experience under his belt, Chockalingam at the helm means a bright future for Doyensys’ and its enthusiastic and efficient workplace environment.
