MCLEAN, VA--(Marketwire - February 8, 2010) -  GlobalLogic announced that it will be a gold sponsor of Zinnov Management Consulting's Confluence 2010 conference on March 17th & 18th in Santa Clara, California. The event will provide senior executives in the R&D and product engineering markets an opportunity to attend interactive panel discussions, keynotes and networking sessions that focus on globalization. Among others, Confluence 2010's guest speakers include Anil Chakravarthy, SVP Enterprise Product Operations, Symantec; Christian Verstraete, CTO - MDI Business, HP; Gordon Paynem SVP & GM, Citrix; Ajit Nazre, Partner, KPCB; Dr. C. Mohan, IBM Fellow, IBM - Almaden; and Pat Conley, Adjunct Professor, Rochester Institute of Technology.

In addition to co-sponsoring the event, GlobalLogic will provide attendees with a chance to play Innovation Games®, a proven methodology of using "serious games" to help organizations tackle complex problems. Based on deep principles of cognitive psychology and organizational behavior, Innovation Games have been leveraged by major league players like Google, SAP and Qualcomm. Luke Hohmann, the founder of Innovation Games, will be in attendance at the station to help facilitate the experience and provide participants with a complimentary copy of his book, Innovation Games: Creating Breakthrough Products Through Collaborative Play.

"We are very excited to be participating in this event," said Milind Patwardhan, Vice President, Marketing, GlobalLogic. "Global innovation and collaborative product development is rapidly becoming the preferred method of R&D, and Zinnov is going to great lengths to help product engineering decision-makers thoroughly understand its challenges, benefits and best practices."

"As global operations are becoming critical for technology companies, we still see many myths surrounding globalization as executives enter the decision-making process," said Vamsee Tirukkala, Co-Founder and Managing Principal, Zinnov LLC. "We hope to dispel these myths by directly addressing them in thoughtful panel sessions, by showcasing successful case studies, and by facilitating face-to-face conversations between attendees and industry leaders."
