In 1999, Talisma (A Customer Relationship Management division of Aditi) was spun off in 1999. The founding of Talisma was driven by the concept of supporting customers through various modes of communication using Internet. Pradeep Singh spent the next 10 years in Talisma building the company. In 2008, Campus Management acquired the Talisma brand and Talisma Corporation Pvt. Ltd. in Bangalore and its higher education business unit based in Bellevue, Washington.[1]

With the acquisition, Aditi invested $5 million in Azure Acceleration Lab an Azure-based rapid application development offering to strengthen its Cloud Computing capabilities.[6] In May 2013, Aditi expanded its cloud capabilities with the acquisition of Get Cloud Ready, thus entering the AWS market.
