KING OF PRUSSIA, PA--(Marketwire - Sep 19, 2012) - Ci&T, a Nearshore provider of value-driven web and mobile application services, today announced that it has been named to the Global Services 100 list and Software Magazine's Software 500 ranking. The award recognitions highlight the success of Ci&T's high-performance teams in providing exemplary and strategic application development and management services for its worldwide customers.
The Global Services 100 listing, conducted under the guidance of an independent advisory firm, is a tool for buyers of business and technology services to find the right vendor. Included on the list for the second year in a row, Ci&T was named as a top worldwide IT and business process outsourcing provider and featured as an Emerging Mid-Tier Global Application Development and Maintenance (ADM) Leader.
"The global service provider landscape is increasingly getting complex; but buyers are looking at vendors with scale, skill or both in delivering business outcomes and not cost-savings alone," said Ed Nair, editor, Global Services. "The companies on the Global Services 100 list have demonstrated their ability to deliver complex solutions and services, manage global customers and sustain successful financial performance."
The Software 500 is an annual listing of the largest software and service companies throughout the world. A revenue-based ranking, the list is created for medium-to-large enterprises, their IT professionals, software developers and business managers involved in software and services purchasing.
"The 2012 Software 500 results show that revenue growth in the software and services industry was again healthy, with total Software 500 revenue of $643.6 billion worldwide for 2011, representing approximately 17 percent growth from the previous year's list," says John P. Desmond, editor, Software Magazine. "The Software 500 helps CIOs, senior IT managers and IT staff research and create the short list of business partners. It is a quick reference of vendor viability. And the online version is searchable by category, making it what we call 'the online catalog to enterprise software.'"
"Inclusion on these lists is great validation of what we always aim to accomplish -- to provide customers with high-performance teams for business-critical development projects," said Cesar Gon, founder and CEO, Ci&T. "We've had an exciting year so far, including our strategic partnership with Acquia and the custom application work we've done with MetLife Brazil and others. These most recent achievements solidify our drive to leverage Lean IT and Agile methodologies to generate value and ensure success for our company, but more importantly our clients."
