Dharmendra Sankhla Senior Technical Architect at TSYS
Kiran did an exceptional job on recent TOGAF9.1 training held at our company. As I remember, based on the interaction with the participants and considering their work background during training, he creatively changed his approach and delivered the training in a very effective manner.The way he incorporated some of the real time examples specific to our domain during training was the showing the sign of how adaptive he is. Kiran was a very productive person and is a multi-skilled person with vast knowledge.It’s a pleasure having him as Trainer as he is a customer-service oriented. Highly recommended.
Pradeep Pillai Director, Application Systems TSYS
We used Kiran’s expertize to train, TOGAF 9.1, to a group of Technical Leads and Architects. The four days training gave us key insights into various aspects of TOGAF 9.1 enterprise framework. I recommend him for more consulting opportunities with TOGAF.
Girish Adat Senior Software Architect SunTec Trivandrum
The training was supported by the solid professional background of Kiran. All the examples and explanations were also showing the same. Unlike a regular “teaching” oriented usual training we can get from anywhere, the knowledge of an enterprise architect is really worthy during the sessions. He has got a satisfying answers for any of our questions. The answers shows his solid knowledge and experience for more than a decade.
Padmanabhan S Senior Architect SunTec Trivandrum
“…the knowledge of a traveler exceeds that which is got by reading”. In every way, this is true for sessions by Kiran; which proves how a normal theory ‘class room’ is different from we having a ‘discussion’ with an Enterprise Architect (by profession) with a solid 2 decades field experience. Power packed by his experience; the way he delivers the subject is inspiring and a great value add to us. He handles the sessions excellently both professionally and personally. All the best Kiran!
Senthil Kumar Director – Technology Aricent
I attended the Enterprise Architecture training provided by Kiran. Kiran made the otherwise dry subject very interesting and engaging. I got good understanding of Zachmann and TOGAF enterprise architecture methodologies from the training. I would recommend his training to anyone who wants to get basic and sound understanding of Enterprise Architecture.
Manas Sahu Principal Engineer/Technical Architect at GXS (now OpenText)
I was part of a batch professionals trained by Kiran for TOGAF 9.1. Kiran possesses the right depth and breadth to train on a subject that can be at times very relative and can be interpreted in many different ways. His capability to keep the sessions engaging with case studies and examples was amazing. With the right level of detail and attention to the subject matter, the introduction to the world of TOGAF was made simple by Kiran. I will highly recommend Kiran.
Nafees Ahmad Head – NSN Online Services (NOLS) at Nokia Siemens Networks
Kiran Divakaran was our trainer for TOGAF 9.1 combined (L1 & 2) 4-days course organized by ITprenuers. Kiran with more than 15 years of deep, diverse and hands-on experience was probably one of the best fit for the program. Apart from his great subject knowledge, I was impressed by his organizing and facilitating skills. He was able to steer the discussion and class in right direction to produce expected outcome in terms of learning’s and take away’s along with fulfilling strict course format and deadline. I wish Kiran all the luck for his future ventures

Kiran Divakaran has immense experience in the areas of architecture his lectures speak volumes of that and is adept in understanding the psyche of the trainee and greatly can acclimatize it to trainee needs. He creates an astounding environment for learning. He has been instrumental in shaping me to be an aspiring architect given a short span of time. He is one of the person with whom I would like to have an association with.
The best part of the course was the details on the ADM, ADM guidelines and techniques, architecture, content Meta model and enterprise continuum. Some great candid examples were used in understanding these concepts which I believe will establish me as an accomplished architect. The course ware was rich in articulating the most abstract concepts in an easy to understand way. The time bound exercises were useful and will instill confidence in preparing you for the TOGAF 9.1 examination.
Overall the course structuring was indeed of great help for one who would be appearing for the examination. It has been an enriching sojourn with Kiran bringing out those on the spot technical discussions when required.
