Testing to break code

From Business Journal

In the competitive world of IT outsourcing, Dhiraj Sharma has carved out a niche he believes will take his company from a startup he financed with $10,000 in savings to a global powerhouse based on a seemingly simple proposition: give his team at Simplion Inc. a piece of code or a system to test and they’ll do their very best to break it.

San Jose-based Simplion, which makes its home on Fortran Drive, has gone from that simple $10,000 investment in 2004 to $344,424 in revenue in 2005, $1.4 million in revenue in 2006 and $3.1 million in revenue in 2007. The company specializes in application engineering and software testing services covering industry verticals such as financial services, technology, telecom, health care, manufacturing, retail and media.

Sharma, who holds the title of vice president of enterprise solutions, spent his childhood in India as a member of an entrepreneurial family, with various family members working in real estate services. He came to the United States and earned a master’s degree in computer engineering from San Jose State University. He worked for 10 years at various positions at Hewlett-Packard Co., working in enterprise applications, systems integration, business intelligence and software.
