Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 13, 2009
Liaison Technologies, a global provider of integration and data management services, announced today the expansion of its European operations to the UK and Sweden, where the company is opening new subsidiaries. The European business integration and data management service market is growing fast and the UK and Sweden are key markets for Liaison. Setting up new subsidiaries is an important step for the expansion of Liaison's European and international operations. The company already has offices in Finland and the Netherlands as well as significant coverage in US markets with global headquarters in Atlanta, GA.
Business system integration is a rapidly growing industry. The globalization of businesses creates more demand for integration capabilities and outsourcing services. According to Gartner, in 2007 companies spent more than $1.5 billion on infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and business-to-business (B2B) project outsourcing services. By 2011, midsize to large companies will at least double the number of multi-enterprise integration and interoperability projects and spend at least 50% more on B2B projects, compared with 2006.
In Europe, EU harmonization and the need to improve enterprise resource planning are among the key drivers to boost the integration industry. However, the European market for integration services is still highly fragmented with over 300 different service providers, most of which are regionally focused. For pan-national companies, integration of global business processes requires a global partner.
Liaison Technologies specializes in global business-to-business integration and data management services. The company provides a unique set of services, software, and expertise for mission critical business operations in over 35 countries. With Liaison's services, companies can improve their operations with centralized data management and integrated supply chain management.
"In Sweden, we already have important clients from different industries. In the UK, we see considerable market potential and have significant clients in the telecommunications industry. We believe in steady growth in both of these markets and aim to increase our market share with new clients. Our services and solutions are technology agnostic and business focused, which make them applicable from traditional industry sectors to mobile operators," comments Juhani Sormanen, Executive Vice President of Liaison Technologies.
Liaison has helped companies like Amazon.com, CHEP International, Merck & Company, MetLife, Siemens and Stora Enso. Liaison's services are used by more than 5,000 organizations in Europe, the United States, and Asia. The company is headquartered in Atlanta, USA and the European headquarter is in Tampere, Finland. The new subsidiaries are located in London and Stockholm.
