VIENNA, VA--(Marketwire - August 12, 2009) - GlobalLogic, the innovative leader in global software R&D services with more than 150 technology client partnerships, expands its footprint into the Latin American region by opening a new software R&D center in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The center blends software R&D experience and knowledge of distributed Agile methods with a mix of Spanish and English language skills, and will help the company expand its client base in North America and Europe.

"Globalizing product innovation has come of age as both emerging and established technology companies are embracing global innovation for their increasingly global products supported by companies like GlobalLogic," said Peter Harrison, CEO of GlobalLogic. "Argentina, is a logical next step for our strategy of creating distinguished innovation clusters and networks for optimizing our clients' R&D operations and enhancing their Go-to-markets."

Argentina, with over 100 higher education institutions, a rapidly growing software industry and talent pool, US time zones and high quality of English language skills, is uniquely positioned to become part of GlobalLogic's Global Innovation clusters supporting R&D operations for its over 150 clients.
