Oct 07, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
Persistent Systems, a provider of software product development and technology services, has opened its first US-based collaborative software product development center in Dublin, Ohio.
With over 85% of Persistent Systems' business coming from US clients, the establishment of a domestic collaborative software development center allows Persistent Systems to further strengthen and expand its relationships with regional companies in delivering next generation cloud computing, analytics, mobility and social collaboration solutions.
Persistent Systems selected its new facility based on the Columbus Ohio region's available technical talent, proximity to leading academic institutions including The Ohio State University and other regional colleges and universities, central location and excellent access to North American markets. The company will begin hiring immediately for 56 positions and plans to scale up to 100 employees at this site.
The Ohio facility is specifically designed to help enterprises create rapid prototypes of next generation applications leveraging analytic technologies and utilizing perceptual computing driven innovative user interfaces. The facility will have a strong focus initially on enabling enterprises to make better business decisions through big data analytics - the process of examining large amounts of data of a variety of types to uncover hidden patterns and unknown correlations. With this new center, Persistent Systems will be supporting innovative regional businesses including its client, Cardinal Health.
"Persistent Systems is looking forward to attracting the brightest graduates specializing in the fields of computer science, engineering and statistics from the many excellent colleges and universities in the Columbus Region," said Hari Haran, President of Persistent Systems, Inc.
"As a global company, domestic sourcing or onshoring plays a strategic role in strengthening our long term partnerships with our clients. Now with our Collaborative Software Development Center, we can be even closer to our clients to deliver even higher value cutting edge solutions and accelerating time to market."
"We're excited about Persistent's choice to do business in Dublin," said Kenny McDonald, chief economic officer of Columbus 2020. "The Columbus Region continues to grow as a center for talent and technology companies."
WSA Studio designed Persistent Systems' 8500 square foot facility with interiors and individual work spaces geared towards agile and rapid software development optimized for a collaborative work environment. A centralized architectural device demarcates the gathering place between high velocity production and collaborative team building. Color and material play a large role in how the space collectively blends together and strengthens the Persistent Systems brand and focus on the technology driven workplace.
