Hemanth Atluri is One of Tech’s Boldest Innovators

Hemanth Atluri is one of the most notable technology developers who reached the top in the IT field and has helped shape the most notable technology we use today. Atluri’s journey is very interesting and inspiring, from the days where he used to visit a neighbor’s home to watch television, to the Software Engineer at Salesforce, a global leader in customer relationship management (CRM) and a rich educational background in Applied Computer Science.

Hemanth extensively worked on microservices architecture, asynchronous processing using Kafka and using NoSQL databases MongoDB, Cassandra. His expertise is in Java and Spring Boot Application development from “scratch to production maintenance,” as he explains.

Express Scripts(ESI) now Cigna/Evernorth is a healthcare company focused on delivering personalized solutions to improve healthcare and  the largest pharmacy benefit management (PBM) organization in the United States. 

Hemanth architected and implemented Order Entity Platform which is a crucial entity in Pharmacy as a Platforms (PaaP) to replicate and replace the existing world’s largest automated pharmacy system. Functionality included loading existing data, syncing data in real time, feeding data to data lakes to apply Machine Learning and AI, and parallel data loading and data syncing in real time. The older legacy system faced the dual challenge of modernizing the systems while also meeting interoperability requirements. ESI met both goals using a Hybrid Cloud Approach (HCA) to extract data from legacy systems and make it more accessible for modern applications.This approach gave the option to keep data moving while working on updating the systems. HCA platforms helped increase cloud adoption, and by mid-2021, 83% of Java applications were in the cloud. Express Scripts Pharmacy dispenses more than 100 million adjusted prescriptions each year and all these 100 million prescriptions will be fed to the Order Entity platform. Internal and external systems will interact with the Order Platform to get Order related information which includes order status, delivery and pricing information and other details. Developing the order platform reduced the latency by 57% to all the existing members. Petco, a leading pet specialty retailer, had entered a strategic alliance with Express Scripts that enabled millions of pet parents to order and receive pet medicines from the comfort and convenience of home. Added new capabilities to the PaaP system to intake orders from Petco systems and dispense medications through the ESI pharmacy for pet prescriptions, transforming the pet medicine industry and making access to critical pet medicines convenient and affordable for more pet parents than ever before. Petco customers spent more than $3.9 billion annually on prescription medications for their animals and petco systems are accessing the ESI Order Platform to get order details.

Salesforce, Inc. is a cloud-based software company that provides customer relationship management (CRM) software and applications focused on sales, customer service, marketing automation, analytics, and application development.

Hemanth is one of the major engineers who worked on fabricating Net Zero Marketplace(NZM), powered by Salesfoce. NZM is a climate action hub for everyone and a trusted site for organizations to purchase carbon credits. Net Zero Marketplace connects buyers with trusted carbon credit providers.  Any organization visiting the marketplace can come to the site and — without paying or signing up — can learn about carbon projects and, unlike many marketplaces out there today, can transparently see pricing and third-party ratings. Worked in significant epics to mention a few checkout phase of the purchase, order history and played an active role in reaching the milestones. Hemanth wore multiple hats in this project to the quality test the other engineer worked on and involved in designing the backend API’s, given inputs to adjust some screens in the user experience interaction sessions with engineering and product leadership.

The Taskforce on Scaling Voluntary Carbon Markets (TSVCM), sponsored by the Institute of International Finance (IIF) with knowledge support from McKinsey, estimates that overall, the market for carbon credits could be worth upward of $50 billion in 2030.

As a leader in the IT space, Hemanth likes where the industry is moving. 

“The IT industry is moving on an upward trajectory with no signs of slowing down. As technology advances, the demand for tech talent will continue to grow which means a continued availability of IT jobs. This is one of the reasons that makes IT such an attractive industry. There’s no limit to what you can achieve working in technology if you have the vision. Therefore, a career in tech will always motivate you to reach and achieve the highest standards. From coding and software development to data analysis, testing, project management and more, there’s a multitude of different roles and functions within IT to suit various skill sets. With the diversity in the industry, individuals have an opportunity to wear multiple hats and have flexibility to switch departments.”

At his core, Hemanth cares about building fantastic customer experiences and helping companies elevate to do the most good they can.
