Ciklum, a Danish innovative IT outsourcing company specializing in nearshore software development in Eastern Europe, expands its cooperation with the international and European Outsourcing organizations by establishing a combined knowledge partnership with the Outsourcing Verband (German-Austria-Swiss Outsourcing Association) and the Outsourcing Journal.
The key concepts of the knowledge partnership are sharing and acknowledgement. By partnering with the Outsourcing Verband Ciklum pursues the acknowledgement as a valuable member of the European Outsourcing Community by contributing and sharing IT Outsourcing (ITO) related information and best practices.
Another important goal Ciklum aims to reach via partnership with the Outsourcing Verband is to focus more on the European German speaking area (DACH) and help companies from this region to explore their Nearshoring opportunities and benefits in Central and Eastern Europe (specifically in Ukraine and Belarus).
“Since 2011 Switzerland has been witnessing an exploding interest in nearshore software development,” says Franco Dal Molin, Ciklum’s Country Manager for Switzerland. “Every month we add two new Own Development Team clients to Ciklum portfolio. We have accumulated lots of reference case studies and best practices that should definitely be shared with a broader audience via the Outsourcing Verband’s online portals.”
The Knowledge Partnership is expected to be mutually beneficial for both Ciklum and the Outsourcing Verband. "Ciklum has a proven model in delivering IT and business services to European customers and as part of the partnership Ciklum will share some of its knowledge and project experiences with our network," says Stephan Fricke, CEO of the Outsourcing Verband.
Ciklum is looking forward to boosting expansion of its corporate communication within the German speaking markets via such powerful knowledge sharing and accumulation platforms as the Outsourcing Verband and the Outsourcing Journal.
