Khanna Consulting: Helping Clients Achieve Real Results through Out-Of-The- Box Thinking

Sanjiv Khanna, Founder
The affairs of the Retail Energy industry are not only very complex in nature, but also continue to evolve due to constant changes in the regulatory and competitive landscape. Additionally, faster adoption of the smarter devices and technologies by consumers adds fuel to the fire. Since every retail energy provider uses a mix of custom home grown applications along with customized off-the-shelf software and out-of-box cloud solutions, it leads to a lot of data duplication and large number of integration points. Houston TX based Khanna Consulting stays abreast of the trends in the industry and helps its clients implement best-in-class systems with simpler integration and flexibility to quickly react to the changes in the regulatory and competitive landscape.

Khanna Consulting, founded by Sanjiv Khanna is a boutique consulting firm that provides end-to-end business and IT consulting to companies in the Retail Energy industry. While Khanna Consulting has technical expertise in Oracle products that is not industry specific, its focus is to be a solution provider specifically for the Retail Energy industry. It has been solving its clients’ business c h a l l e n g e s using several of the Oracle products like Oracle-Siebel, Oracle Utilities, OBIEE, amongst others, as well as custom development using Microsoft’s Dot Net technologies.

The “Out of the Box” Approach

The company offers complete solution lifecycles to customers using the Design, Build and Manage approach. This approach has led to very high customer satisfaction. “We mostly use Oracle products like Oracle-Siebel, Oracle Utilities, OBIEE, etc. for mid-office and back-office solutions. Khanna Consulting also specializes in the digital space and is technology agnostic in the digital space as there are diverse technologies available to deliver digital business solutions that match client’s requirements.
During the Manage phase we make use of proactive agile methodologies to enhance and support the existing technical solutions and assets and make recommendations to the client during the manage phase in order to avoid any major surprises or necessity to rewrite applications down the road,” says Sanjiv. He goes on to add, “There is no other consulting company that focuses on the Retail Energy industry like Khanna Consulting. We have a talented pool of senior-level consultants with deep expertise in the business and most of the popular technologies needed in the retail energy space. As a result of this we have developed a niche expertise that no other consulting company can offer.”
