Seven years later, Thadani is president and CEO of a $5 million enterprise content management solution provider and consulting firm, and Unbounded Solutions has earned itself the No. 8 spot on CRN's Fast Growth 2007 list.
In 2006, Unbounded posted revenue nearing $5 million, an increase of almost 400 percent over its 2004 numbers, and Thadani attributes that to finding niche areas rather than trying to become a jack-of-all-trades.
Unbounded specializes in enterprise content management, particularly in deploying EMC's Documentum software, and in Microsoft SharePoint and Seibel CRM software deployments. The Atlanta-based solution provider also does IBM WebSphere and Tibco application integration projects.
Unbounded is looking into expanding its role to provide IT staffers to customers and plans to expand internationally with offices in Europe and Asia. Youth and flexibility are key selling points, according to Thadani. "We're a very young company; we have a very young workforce," he said. "We have a pretty agile consulting workforce. For each project they relocate to the customers' work site.
"Once we get into a customer site and they get to see the quality of the consultants we are providing, they generally keep on buying services from us. We're able to retain the existing customer base and to move into new areas with them as well," he said.
