Information and technology serve as the two major ingredients of success for most of the businesses in this era. IT when combined with strategy, customer-centric approach and industry know-how makes the perfect balance that any business requires to succeed. With the pace at which IT is emerging as a tool for almost all industries, the demand for IT governance is also mounting.

IT governance helps businesses to ensure that the usage of information and technology generates business value. Thus, for every business that aims to infuse technology into its operations, IT governance remains a major factor to be focused on. The founders of Astute Technologies India, a provider of IT governance solutions such as data centre, end-user computing, managed security and so on decided to found the organization to help companies traverse the complex terrain of IT governance with the help of their expert services.
Astute Technologies maintains an extended service portfolio wherein it provides solutions ranging from Data Connectivity to Video Surveillance ( End to End IT Solutions).

Astute was established to introduce the brand into consulting business and to help businesses manage their IT operations. While the aim was to deliver the best in terms of IT governance, the path ahead had profuse challenges to be encountered. J S Dixit, Managing Director of the company says, “The recession had just passed in 2010. So, getting business was very difficult for us.” Despite of the after effects of the recession and unpleasing market sentiments, Astute team persisted through every odd to sustain within the industry.
Soon, their efforts paid off and the company got a leading co-operative bank as its first major client.
