EPAM, founded in 1993, started as a partner to some of the largest software companies in the world and, over the course of the next sixteen years, expanded its offering well beyond core software engineering. In 2012, the company took the next step in its growth journey by becoming a public company on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).

Indian-based Alliance Global Services (AGS), acquired last year by EPAM, was founded in 1994 on very similar principles. The focus for AGS was to build a typical Indian organization that focused on software engineering and quality, rather than on pure outsourcing of low-complexity technical or BPO tasks.

EPAM chose AGS because the culture of product engineering and product management was so closely attuned to EPAM's vision and values. Arkadiy Dobkin, CEO & Co-Founder, Epam Systems, said, "Our entry into India last year, though our acquisition of Alliance Global Services,is an important part of our global strategy. India isn't just a delivery location for us - it's an opportunity to bring multidisciplinary, hybrid teams, with the best skills and capabilities, to work in close collaboration with our clients to help them transform their digital offerings and business models. We were fortunate to find a company whose culture and emphasis on software engineering so closely mirrored our own."

Backed with over two decades of superior engineering skills, EPAM's focus has always been on providing new, c solutions for their clients that meet specific business needs. "When organizations need a system or product that they can't buy off the shelf; we come in and build an entirely new system from the ground up. Being a global solutions company, we can take very complex and increasingly digital business challenges and address them end-to-end for our clients - bringing in key skills and capabilities regardless of where they may reside in the world", he says.
What makes EPAM stand out in the crowd is their ability to understand the entire business of the customers and apply that knowledge to build the right teams to deliver the most effective results. "It is an evolution in the industry for Product Development Services (PDS) to Digital Platform Engineering Services (DPES). Think of it as 'digital orchestration' - with our deep software engineering skills, we have all of the competencies of a traditional service provider,so we can combine core product development and integration capabilities with our added skills of business consulting, experience strategy and design thinking - it's those hybrid skills that help us take ownership across the entire product and platform development life cycle and provide solutions to very complex problems", he adds.

Engineering is in Our DNA!!
