GlobalLogic and Enthiosys Partner to Provide Technology Leaders With Integrated Software Engineering and Agile Product Management Services

Joint Engagement Speeds Time to Market by Combining Global Software Product Development Services With Strategic Customer Insights and Agile Product Planning

VIENNA, VA and MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - November 11, 2008) - GlobalLogic, Inc., the leader in global product development services, and Enthiosys, Inc., the leader in Agile product management, have partnered to offer technology firms full product development lifecycle services including customer needs analysis, software development and support, business model design and strategic roadmaps. Both firms specialize in different aspects of Agile development.

The partnership combines GlobalLogic's award-winning expertise in distributed Agile development with Enthiosys' extensive knowledge of Agile product management and training. Their integrated services will enable both early-stage and established companies to accelerate their product development cycles to bring innovative software products to market more quickly.

"Many of our nearly 200 technology clients have sought us out because of our reputation for successfully managing Agile-based software product development across a highly distributed environment," explained Peter Harrison, chief executive officer of GlobalLogic. "Velocity™, our platform for this, enables our product engineers to collaborate with our clients across geographic boundaries to meet the important product quality and time-to-market goals our clients have set. Enthiosys helps us better serve these clients by providing strategic counsel on product roadmaps and market strategy, training for Agile product managers, and customer innovation techniques."

In contrast to many firms that focus on IT services, GlobalLogic specializes in software product R&D for emerging and established technology companies. Its services include everything from market analysis and product conceptualization, engineering to migration, testing and support. The company has received widespread recognition for innovation in software product R&D, including its InfoWorld award-winning platform for distributed Agile development, GlobalLogic Velocity™ (http://www.globallogic.com/Media/pressReleaseDetail.asp?press/65) and GlobalLogic Version 1.0sm, an offering for both early and late stage companies that has helped the company's clients launch innovative and disruptive technologies at major conferences such as Demofall-2008 (http://www.globallogic.com/Media/pressReleaseDetail.asp?press/100).

"GlobalLogic's product development services are technologically advanced, globally distributed, and provide a unique joint-venture partnering model for their clients," said Luke Hohmann, chief executive officer of Enthiosys. "GlobalLogic takes partial or full ownership of product engineering, platform and architecture for a wide range of companies: from start-ups to the world's largest technology companies. Their award-winning Agile platform, GlobalLogic Velocity™, supports massively distributed Agile development and highlights the value of Agile product management. As pioneers in Agile product management, we're thrilled to be teaming up with such industry leaders. Our joint clients are able to identify strategic market opportunities more clearly and get solutions to market faster."

The leading specialist in providing global software product development services, GlobalLogic, Inc., partners with emerging and established technology companies to help them bring great software products to market in less time and at less cost. GlobalLogic has developed a unique joint-venture model of partnering with technology companies to create a dedicated global delivery center. The software R&D engineers located in our centers in the U.S., India, China and Ukraine serve as virtual extensions of our client's local development teams. In other cases where the client does not have any internal engineering staff, GlobalLogic provides a "fabless" partnership from the start, with GlobalLogic taking ownership of the product engineering, platform and architecture. This allows companies to focus on the other aspects of a successful product launch such as strategy, marketing, customer acquisition, go-to-market challenges and the demands of ever-changing markets. By leveraging our global facilities, world-class engineers and state-of-the-art tools and processes, companies can increase the quality of their software products while dramatically reducing timelines and operating costs -- often by 30 percent or more.
