EPAM Systems, Inc., the leading software engineering and IT Outsourcing (ITO) provider in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), has announced today that its proprietary SDLC management platform, Project Management Center (PMC), has been included in the "Buyers Guide: Software Development and Project Management Tools and Services" in its recent article "Taking a Scrum Approach to Product Development" by Software Magazine — the Software Decision Journal — home of the Software 500 ranking of the world's largest software product and services companies.
EPAM has continuously refined its internal development tools to keep pace with the evolving demands of its client engagements, integrating up-to-date methodologies with a real-word appreciation of market needs. This forward-looking investment is well represented in EPAM's Project Management Center (PMC) — a robust web based SDLC collaboration platform addressing the needs of Global Delivery Model (GDM) for organizing, coordinating, and tracking the delivery process of complex geographically distributed projects allowing different types of development paradigms working together.
EPAM's embrace of Scrum methodologies was driven by the need of the global clients for a more flexible approach to software development to better meet the dynamic requirements of their diverse businesses and day-to-day realities of globally distributed development teams. Through the experience of addressing many challenges in these client engagements, EPAM developed a deep, practical understanding of distributed Scrum practices and implemented those within its toolsets.
"EPAM's accumulated expertise in Scrum methodology, coupled with the comprehensive set of tools found in PMC, allowed us to take on complex and mission critical engagements that would fall outside the capabilities of many of our competitors. It is also an important factor behind EPAM's recognized leadership in Outsourced Product Development and large geographically distributed application development engagements," said Balazs Fejes, EPAM's CTO. "Having Software Magazine recognize our proprietary platform among best toolsets on the market further validates the quality behind our services, and underscores the value and expertise we bring to every client we work with."
