Pune, Maharashtra, India, 2007/03/16 - Extentia Information Technology, a global software development company, today announced a strategic collaboration with Stratos Software, Germany, to provide software development services to European clients.
Stratos Software, formed more than a decade ago, has carved a niche for itself in the enterprise application domain with an objective of delivering successful enterprise solutions to companies across Europe. With commitment and a keen proficiency in open-source standards, Stratos Software has earned an excellent track-record in delivering reliable enterprise solutions.
The collaboration between Stratos and Extentia allows them to jointly offer customers a unique “Best Shoring” model. Extentia’s team of technical pre-sales experts will work onsite along with the Stratos team in Germany, while the development of the projects will be executed at Extentia’s development center in India. This best-of-both-worlds Indo-German model will bring significant benefit to European clients by minimizing the project communication gap with development units and helping to develop a better understanding about the project locally. This outsourcing delivery model gives customers total control over the project while allowing them to tap into a global delivery model.
Announcing the collaboration with Extentia, Frank Woitag, CEO of Stratos Software said, “Our products and solutions have gained a wide user base which is continuously increasing. There is a pressing need to increase the technical team to support this demand. Extentia, with its experience and reliability in meeting specialized software development needs, can provide tremendous value to our customers.”
Extentia Information Technology addresses the specific needs of corporate business groups by delivering customized software solutions. Extentia’s growing team, with over eight years of experience in enterprise and web software application development, is leading the way by responding with end-to-end solutions for the benefit of their customers and the assurance that they will continue to drive innovation in various domains.
Extentia’s initiatives are driven by the need of their customers to achieve a strong return on investment using robust methodologies and tools to develop applications and test solutions. They have already achieved significant success in the US and UK, and this step will further strengthen their position in Germany and other parts of Europe as well.
Stratos Software and Extentia Information Technology will share their expertise and experiences about maximizing the efficiencies of outsourced software development at CeBIT 2007. Dr. Marc Cremer, Director and co-founder of Extentia comments, "CeBIT is an important venue for Indian companies as it allows us to address the rapidly growing interest from European customers to utilize Indian IT services. In just the past year, Extentia’s European customer base has doubled - we see this as a very positive indicator of a growing European market share and look forward to expanding it further.”
