Newtown, PA — September 2, 2009 — EPAM Systems, Inc., the leading software engineering and IT Outsourcing (ITO) provider in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), has been recognized with yet another global award, demonstrating both its excellence in global service delivery as well as its regional leadership. Selected as one of "Top 50 Best Managed Outsourcing Vendors" on the widely referenced 2009 Global ITO firms ranking from Brown-Wilson Group, EPAM is the only Central and Eastern European service provider on this year's list.
The 50 Best Managed global outsourcing vendors are identified annually through "The Black Book of Outsourcing" by surveying actual service users, polling client experience, and assessing industry developments.
EPAM's inclusion into the 2009 list follows its recent success on The Black Book's vendor rankings where it earned the top honor globally as the #1 Software Product Development and Engineering company.
EPAM's long-term success, which draws on over 40 million hours of relevant software development experience, has been attributed to the unique combination of top engineering talent from Central and Eastern Europe, a set of comprehensive distributed project management tools and world class product development methodologies, relentless attention to quality and project performance, and adherence to the strictest security and infrastructure standards.
"Awards based on independent unbiased customers' feedback are the most satisfying and most valuable for EPAM. It is a clear demonstration of the high level of satisfaction from their outsourcing partnership and the results we deliver. Today more than ever, performance and dependability of ITO service providers are among the key pillars for maintaining the overall competitiveness of their business," noted Arkadiy Dobkin, EPAM's President and CEO. "I want to express our deepest gratitude to all who have contributed to the company's ongoing success".
