Jijo Olassa, CEO of Verbat Technologies, commented: ‘By bringing Rob into our UK operation, we can draw on his experience from a client point-of-view and a vendor point-of-view to help manage internal and external stakeholders at all levels and deliver successful services for digital initiatives in a country that is really embracing outsourcing.’
Verbat’s view that the UK is poised to lead the world on the adoption of outsourcing is supported by the latest ISG Momentum Market Trends report, which also ranks the UK as the number one country in the outsourcing viability index for digital technologies. Furthermore, according to Gartner, the outsourcing industry contributes more than 50 per cent of the worldwide IT services market, which will itself exceed $980bn in 2015.
The demand that Verbat Technologies is experiencing is not for the traditional waterfall model of application services. Olassa explained: ‘…what most businesses find is that, as their company grows, so too do their requirements so they need access to a more agile solution that can continue to be grown and developed on an ongoing basis.’
Rob Pearlman added: ‘I’m excited to join a successful, fast emerging digital technology company, like Verbat Technologies, that is trying to redefine the quality benchmarks for application development and maintenance solutions.
‘The services we provide are helping help firms to increase their operational efficiency, concentrate on their own core competencies, reduce time-to-market, and build scalable and economic digital technology platforms for the future. It’s because of these huge benefits that our solutions are in demand in the UK and all over the world.’
