KING OF PRUSSIA, PA--(Marketwire - May 29, 2012) - Ci&T, a Nearshore provider of value-driven web and mobile application services and software product engineering, today announced that it has provided application management services to MetLife Brazil, the world leader in life insurance, to guarantee constant availability of mission-critical applications and enable the IT team to focus directly on business-critical activities.
