Mountain View, CA (PRWEB) October 29, 2012
Avantica Technologies, one of the largest Nearshore software engineering services companies in Latin America, announced today that North America software companies are increasingly turning to the company’s architects and developers to help create innovative new products through the use of powerful, next-generation analytic software.
The product trend, commonly referred to as “Big Data”, relies on large volumes of end-customer related data and software analytics to monetize rich supplies of information. As data assets are transformed into new SaaS or license-based products by established software companies eager to tap into new revenue streams, services vendors experienced with next-generation analytics and Agile software development that can help them quickly get solutions to market are sought out.
Avantica, an expert in distributed Agile software development and QA engineering – the company recently nearly doubled its certified Scrum Masters - has over the past 18 years helped the Software 500, start-ups and industry customers release nearly 1,600 innovative software products, large-scale Web and mobile applications. The company’s reputation for quality software delivery utilizing a Nearshore engineering model delivered from Costa Rica and Peru, combined with Avantica’s expertise with popular analytics tools and distributed Agile effectiveness, is increasingly being tapped by North America companies to produce innovative Big Data products.
Mario Chaves, CEO of Avantica Technologies, explained: “The rapid, global spread of smart devices and social networking has generated vast amounts of data – text, audio and video. As a result, software companies have an opportunity to convert that data into products that provide important benefits to end-customers. Avantica’s software architects and Agile experienced developers are teaming with our software customers to quickly get their products to market.”
Because the company’s software engineering centers in Latin America are time-zone aligned with the U.S., unlike India or Eastern European outsourcers, Avantica’s engineering teams can quickly and seamlessly integrate with customer’s internal engineering teams. The North America market for Nearshore software engineering services specialists has grown rapidly. The main benefits are access to aligned cultural compatibility; skilled, economical labor; and shorter travel time and time-zone compatibility supporting highly collaborative software engineering. For example, the flight from San Francisco, Calif. to San Jose, Costa Rica’s capital, is seven hours. That compares to the flight from San Francisco to Bangalore, India, 21 hours. And, with Nearshore specialists bringing experience with both traditional and new analytics software tools, this combination of benefits directed at moving Big Data products forward has proven effective.
The market research firm IDC in 2012 released a forecast that predicts the Big Data market is expected to grow from $3.2 billion in 2010 to $16.9 billion in 2015. Referred to as a “new frontier” by many, Big Data requires new analytics tools, hardware, software and services. Avantica and its North American software customers plan to play an important role.
