StarSoft Development Labs, an established leader in providing software outsourcing management expertise and services in Russia and Eastern Europe, today announced the details of its participation in the Global Services 2007 conference (January 31, 2007, New York), the second annual event produced by CMP and neoIT for executives involved in the evaluation, purchase or management of captive, outsourced, onshore or offshore services. As a major conference sponsor and exhibitor, StarSoft is one of the offshore service providers that will have representatives available to meet with company executives. StarSoft's Senior Vice President Alex Adamopoulos is also one of three panelists scheduled to speak during the 11:15am "Global Supply Destination Showcase" section of the program, featuring leading outsourcing service providers from Russia, India and China.
In his panel presentation entitled "Managing sourcing risks through diversification of outsourcing relationships," Adamopoulos will provide information on outsourcing best practices in the context of the growing Russian market where the ICT industry is one of the most buoyant, dynamic and diverse in the world, according to a recent analyst report by Frost and Sullivan.
''Russian developers are some of the most highly skilled in the industry" said Adamopoulos.With outsourcing becoming a standard cost savings and business innovation practice, companies can and should demand more sophisticated and customized levels of service, as well as know where to find the providers that can best fulfill their particular short and long-term business objectives"
Adamopoulos will specifically highlight various risk management techniques StarSoft has developed in over 15 years working with blue chip companies and small and medium ISVs and service providers in North America and EMEA, and provide insights on the competitive advantages of working with Russian firms in addressing:
- Pain points in traditional outsourcing relationships
- Challenges in turning a paid relationship into a strategic low-risk partnership
As one of the top three Russian firms, StarSoft has a proven track record providing everything from consulting services to sophisticated ADM services based on both Agile and conventional development methodologies for a broad range of platforms and environments Adamopoulos added. Through this conference and other events in 2007, we aim to build relationships with current and potential partners to further drive our company's growth as well as to promote Russia as an outsourcing destination of choice.¡
