Aliso Viejo, CA (PRWEB) July 22, 2009
In today's global economy, speed-to-market and business agility are more important than ever. Long-term vision and planning are still essential to companies, but incremental wins and driving shareholder value are now a higher priority. Add to this new prioritization an accelerated timeframe measured in months instead of years, and one can better understand the pressures enterprises now face.
UST Global(SM), a leading provider of services and solutions for Global 1000 enterprises, has announced it will help companies address these priorities through a newly formed partnership with OutSystems, provider of the industry-leading Agile Platform. As more companies seek the ability to do real Agile development, UST Global (UST) has combined its Agile expertise with a platform that allows Agile to scale to meet enterprise class development requirements.
"Businesses and IT need tighter integration. Consequently, companies want shorter cycle times from vision through deployment to the release of high quality, tested software. OutSystem's Agile products help us maintain the high quality and traceability we require for our clients. This Agile solution--along with our other innovative IT solutions that create business value-- reinforces our clients' commitment to us," said Lawrence I. Lerner, practice head, UST Consulting at UST Global.
UST Global has developed a set of Agile frameworks, which includes provisions for global teams, advanced requirements modeling and testing, and software development best practices. In addition to the frameworks, UST Global has extensive expertise in complex delivery processes, including globally distributed development.
"We're extremely pleased to have UST Global bring its client-centric Global Engagement Model and join us as our latest OutPartner. OutSystems' Agile Platform was built to support distributed Agile development and that, combined with UST's deep Web application development and Agile expertise, will bring the power of Agile to new markets around the world," said Mike Jones, vice president of marketing, OutSystems.
