GlobalLogic Wins InfoWorld 100 Award for Distributed Agile Platform

GlobalLogic Velocity™ Enables Agile Global Product Development

VIENNA, VA--(Marketwire - November 13, 2007) - GlobalLogic, Inc., the leader in global product development, received an InfoWorld 100 award for GlobalLogic Velocity™, a distributed Agile method, supported by a platform and frameworks, designed specifically for software development on a global scale.

The annual awards honor IT projects that demonstrate the most creative use of cutting-edge technologies to further business goals. To be considered, projects must stretch beyond the typical, off-the-shelf solution, and must use multiple technologies in innovative ways to serve well-defined business goals.

"We developed Velocity to better collaborate internally and with our software product development clients across multiple time zones and borders," said Peter Harrison, CEO of GlobalLogic. "Our clients come to us to help reduce the software product development lifecycle and get their high-quality products to market on time and on budget. Velocity is what enables us to do that, delivering time savings of up to 75 percent on key engineering activities. It has been so successful that a growing number of our clients now ask us to help them implement distributed Agile internally."

GlobalLogic Velocity™ is a proprietary distributed Agile method supported by a platform and frameworks. The Velocity Method is a blueprint of processes, templates and behaviors that optimizes communication and provides just enough structure to effectively manage distributed Agile product engineering teams. The Velocity Platform combines best-of-breed tools for communication, tracking and configuration management. Velocity Frameworks are reusable product frameworks that can be used with standardized architecture and technology stacks. Product teams using a Velocity Framework are able to bring products to market faster than teams using standard frameworks.

A typical GlobalLogic global product development project starts with an evaluation of the product engineering method currently being used by the client. GlobalLogic's Velocity Team then configures the Velocity Method and Platform to fit the client's needs. This entails customization of workflows and reports, system installation and support, user documentation and team training.

GlobalLogic's 2,200 employees in the U.S., India, Ukraine and China focus solely on software R&D for technology companies, not IT services. In addition to software development, GlobalLogic services include product testing and quality assurance, product analysis, conceptualization and realization, migration and porting, and product maintenance and support.
