Mclean, VA (PressExposure) July 22, 2011 -- This is one of the hardest times for technology companies, according to GlobalLogic - a leader in software R&D services - but fortunately GlobalLogic stands ready to help companies navigate through this complex time.
"This is the most challenging time for technology companies ever," Michael DeVries, senior vice president and chief marketing officer of GlobalLogic, told TMCnet. "They are faced with this convergence of three huge factors that is causing them to have to deal with innovation on a scale they never had to face before. It's a perfect storm of technology as cloud, mobile, and social are beginning to impact every application."
GlobalLogic's mission is to partner with software-enabled businesses through tailor-made engagement models to rapidly and cost-effectively deliver quality products to market. The company has created a network of global innovation hubs throughout the U.S., India, Ukraine, China and Argentina that connects clients with over 5,500 software minds through an award-winning platform, GlobalLogic Velocity, for distributed Agile (News - Alert) R&D, according to company officials.
GlobalLogic's consumer base includes enterprises, companies on premise or with software-as-a service, telecommunications companies, and solutions providers, among other industries.
When asked what makes GlobalLogic stand out in the marketplace, DeVries said it's the fact that the company is "relentlessly focused on innovation."
"We provide a platform across our company to help customers collaborate on products and connect them socially, and the last thing we do is we give them the ability to open source innovation but inside the walls of our company," he said.
That attention to innovation has helped GlobalLogic emerge as a true market leader, which is evidenced by the fact that the company recently celebrated its 10th anniversary. In that time, the company has grown from 11 employees to 5,500 and has attracted support form top-tier investors such as Sequoia and Goldman Sachs.
GlobalLogic has kicked off the next decade with the acquisition of Rofous, a product and content engineering company. Rofous Software's client base includes industry leaders such as LinkedIn (News - Alert) and Stryker. Thepartnership helped expand GlobalLogic's footprint in India and helped extend its leadership position by adding content engineering to its expanding portfolio of software R&D service offerings.
"It helps our clients have a one-stop shop for all the pieces of cutting-edge mobile technology solutions," DeVries said of the acquisition.
