TechExcel, Inc., the leading provider in unified Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) and IT Support and Service software, today announced that the China Software Industry Association has named Dr. Tieren Zhou, Ph.D., CEO and Chief Software Architect at TechExcel, as one of the Top 10 Software Leaders at their annual Software Enterprise Awards. Vying for this honor from more than 40 candidates, winners of this prestigious award were based on leadership, technological innovation, value and contributions to the Software Industry Association.
The six-month selection consisted of an extensive application, peer and technology review process. The selection committee then discussed each applicant's company and business performance after which finalists were then placed into their final rankings. Dr. Zhou was honored because of his innovative introduction of Knowledge-centric Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) as the standard for software development teams. "I am extremely honored to accept this award," said Dr. Zhou. "The innovations we have been able to achieve during the past 12 years will help Chinese software companies accelerate growth and confidently step into the international market."
TechExcel's ALM solution, DevSuite, is used by leading companies for the development of software including interactive game developers and financial services. Current customers of TechExcel use DevSuite to enable a central core team to design software and outsourced or distributed teams to implement the design.
As current trends indicate, software is increasingly being designed by a central team and then implemented by an outsourced or distributed team. TechExcel DevSuite is built with the best-practice that knowledge -- from design documents, to customer requests, detailed functional and behavior maps, and any other information needed to support a feature -- is central to any software development initiative. By eliminating these silos that exist between different teams and in different locales, DevSuite helps enterprises dramatically transform development processes, increasing both the efficiency and overall quality of end products. This strategy enables teams communicate better and reduce their cycle times, allowing the right products for the right markets to be developed in the shortest possible time. The company's software is used by a large number of Fortune 2000 companies.
