EPAM reconfirms its leadership position among outsourcing vendors in Central and Eastern Europe

(PresseBox) (Frankfurt am Main, ) EPAM Systems, Inc., the leading global offshore software outsourcing provider with development centers in Central and Eastern Europe, for the second year running has made the list of the annual "2007 Top 50 Best Managed Global Outsourcing Vendors" compiled by Brown-Wilson Group, a not-for-profit outsourcing management consulting firm, author of "The Black Book of Outsourcing". Singled out from the pool of 1480 qualified global outsourcing vendors, the current year rankings identify the top 50 vendors via scoring as assessed by the clients and incorporate the results of The Black Book's electronic survey conducted with the purpose to draw out the outsourcing service purchasers' experience with regard to service providers globally.

EPAM's clients responded that the company is their top-choice provider for the second year running. With majority of its development workforce located across Central and Eastern Europe (including Russia, Belarus, Hungary, and Ukraine), EPAM is the only regional outsourcing service provider who has retained a consecutive 2007 inclusion into the 50 Best Managed rating. Having demonstrated consistent strength in four survey areas such as human capital performance, C-Level commitment, corporate direction, and leadership impact, the company has been specifically commended for responsiveness to the client needs, which "sets EPAM apart as the top-ranking Russian outsourcing company". EPAM has also been noted as a "leading choice with IT offshore development buyers" with "strong consultative approach in solving engagement issues".

Besides naming the 50 best managed outsourcing vendors, the study, recognized as the only industry standard for unbiased customer satisfaction in the global services market, also delves into industry trends and client-vendor relationships and serves as a guide for the companies that are shopping for an outsourcing supplier, as well as for the suppliers helping them identify weaknesses and areas for growth. Brown-Wilson Group, in coordination with its research effort, ranked outsourcing vendors according to responses by nearly 17,000 executives and others involved in outsourcing decision-making about their experience and satisfaction with their current suppliers. The survey participation was voluntary and anonymous.

A closer look at leading outsourcing vendors as identified by the "The Black Book of Outsourcing" study - including the top-ranked outsourcing advisors and the most desirable locations for outsourcing – has been published in the Dow Jones flagship publication, The Wall Street Journal Online.

"Reconfirming our status of one of the best 50 global outsourcing vendors named to the list together with many undisputable market leaders is a great honor for us," stated Arkadiy Dobkin, EPAM CEO and President. "Our clients' recognition reflected in the survey results attests to EPAM's strong capabilities to deliver optimal business value that extends beyond the cost-saving benefits associated with IT outsourcing from Russia and other locations in Central and Eastern Europe".
