Dinakar Gangadhar

Senior Software Engineer

Bengaluru, India


"Diagnosed with mild cerebral palsy, Dinakar packed a punch to defy all odds. Today, he is an SAP expert, poet, scriptwriter, weightlifter, boxer and social worker."

How I put change in motion

As an application developer specializing in the SAP Plant Maintenance module, I am helping an overseas food and beverages company streamline its IT data landscape using the latest middleware tools. Not just that, I am also handling development testing, configuration and implementation for the client to ensure optimization of their manufacturing plant.

I joined Accenture as a tester. But later, moved to a project that needed SAP Plant Maintenance skills as guided by a senior. Thanks to timely guidance, training programs and experience gathered over the last six years at Accenture, I am equipped with the right skills and knowledge to help businesses with SAP configuration, implementation, rollout and hyper care to drive positive change.

A day in my life

I have mild cerebral palsy, but I am unstoppable in my spirit and dreams. My day starts with a rigorous session at the gym. During the day, I have numerous meetings as I work with clients across the Netherlands and the United States. I also help my colleagues solve challenges they are facing on a project and acclimatize new joiners to Accenture’s culture and processes.

A supportive team is the foundation of Accenture’s culture. My colleagues and seniors have always stood by me like a rock, even when I was going through tough times in my personal life. They have been supporting me in pursuing my weightlifting and boxing ambition of participating in the Paralympic games too.

Not just professionally, my stint with Accenture has transformed me as an individual. Accenture’s CSR initiatives have inspired me to give back to society—both in terms of time and money—by volunteering at NGOs, especially Cheshire Homes that helped me get into Accenture.

On weekends, you’ll find me training for weightlifting, practicing boxing or writing stories and poems in Kannada. I have acted in short films and written a screenplay too.

My advice

A true disability is not physical. It is when we don’t have a goal or passion in life.
