Ci&T, a Nearshore provider of value-driven web and mobile application services, today announced that is has been recognized in the Leader category on the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals® (IAOP®) Global Outsourcing 100®. This is the company’s sixth appearance on the annual ranking and the second year it has been named a leader.

The 2013 Global Outsourcing 100 recognizes the world’s best outsourcing service providers. The rank is based on applications received and evaluated by an independent judging panel organized by IAOP. According to Jag Dalal, managing director of thought leadership at the IAOP, “As applicants continually raise the bar and as the outsourcing industry continues to grow and mature in many markets, competition is tougher. Being named to The Global Outsourcing 100 is a great achievement, particularly given the strong competition, and we are proud to recognize Ci&T for its excellence.”

In addition to the IAOP ranking, the organization has also asked Bruno Guicardi, Ci&T’s Chief Operating Officer (COO), to share his expertise around the strategies and best practices for creating a high-performance software development team at the upcoming 2013 Outsourcing World Summit, Feb. 18-20, in Phoenix.

“Outsourcing has transformed from an assembly-line approach to a process-oriented culture, and as our industry strives to move away from the ‘software factory’ of the past, the development of high-performance teams should be focused on driving down costs and generating business value,” said Guicardi. “Our high-performance teams are the backbone of Ci&T’s success, and being named yet again to the Global Outsourcing 100 and having the opportunity to discuss the importance of these teams at the Summit supports their role in transforming IT outsourcing.”

Guicardi’s presentation, “Creating High-Performance Software Development Teams,” will take place on Wednesday, Feb. 20, at 11:30 a.m. MT. To schedule a briefing with Guicardi at the conference, contact Ashleigh Churchward at 212.255.0080, ext. 12, or ci&
