Global Outsourcing Reaches Jacksonville: Strategic Technologies, Inc. Signs DataArt as an Outsourcing Provider

DataArt has announced that it was selected by Strategic Technologies, Inc., a leading integrator of business and technology, to provide software development services.

With recently opened offices in Jacksonville, DataArt's Russian team will serve as an extension of Strategic Technologies' own business analysis and development team, working on a J2EE-based equipment management system for a major manufacturing company here.

"Our expansion to the Sunshine state was a calculated decision", says Eugene Goland, President of DataArt. "There are many technology intensive businesses here which could benefit from offshore outsourcing, and I am pleased that our first regional client is Strategic Technologies, a leader in business technology integration".

"Strategic Technologies' solutions require expertise of top engineers and programmers, and we found a great talent pool at DataArt to complement our own", said Scott McIntyre, engagement manager within Strategic Technologies' Information Management practice area. "We liked the fact that DataArt's R&D team in St. Petersburg, Russia now has a local management team near St. Petersburg, Florida". This 'virtual team' approach, where team members work seamlessly from multiple locations using state-of-the-art communication tools, proved to be highly effective for technology firms in the past.

This is the first Florida venture for New York –based DataArt, which has recently opened offices in Jacksonville.
