Mountain View, CA (PRWEB) September 27, 2012
Avantica Technologies, one of the largest Nearshore software engineering services companies in Latin America, announced today that its Cloud application development and testing service continues to deliver both agility and dynamic scalability to the company’s North America start-up and Software 500 customers.
Mario Chaves, Chief Executive Officer of Avantica, explained: “Avantica’s software developers and QA engineers are highly skilled in distributed Agile. We’ve applying those Agile skills toward rapid and productive integration with our customer’s internal engineering teams, helping the expanded team co-develop, test and implement customer’s cloud-based platforms.”
Avantica, which recently nearly doubled its number of certified Scrum Masters, has over the past 18 years helped organizations release nearly 1,600 software products, large-scale Web and mobile applications. The company’s reputation for quality software delivery to the cloud was built on the advantage of Latin America’s time-zone alignment with the U.S. Avantica’s software engineering centers in Costa Rica and Peru, unlike India outsourcing, are geographically close to its customers, enabling the company to quickly help organizations get their apps productive in the cloud.
The Gartner research firm says that while the cloud will save organizations money, the primary benefit of adopting a cloud model should not be cost savings, but instead agility and dynamic scalability, which can improve speed to market. Gartner predicts that as the cloud market continues to evolve, organizations will be increasingly open to the idea of using public cloud resources. Service-level agreements and security precautions will mature and the impact of outages and downtime will be minimized. By 2013, Gartner estimates the cloud computing market will be at $150 billion. One example: Amazon’s Web Services unit, which provides business with an infrastructure Web services platform in the cloud, contributed $500 million in revenue alone in 2010.
Avantica’s engineers are helping the company’s customers develop cloud-based apps for social and enterprise support, and other requirements. 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 alignment supporting Agile-based software development and QA engineering. For example, the flight from San Francisco, Calif. to to San Jose, Costa Rica’s capital, is seven hours. That compares to the flight from San Francisco to Bangalore, India, 21 hours.
While cloud computing has existed for over a decade, consumers and businesses increasingly recognize that the cloud offers attractive solutions. With small and medium-sized businesses leading cloud adoption growth, interest by larger corporations is growing. Avantica Technologies undeniable strengths in Agile software engineering, Nearshore proximity to its North American customers, and cloud application engineering experience, will continue to help the Nearshore specialist’s customers realize improved speed to market.
