Based at Southborough, MA, with its CMM level-4 certified development center located at Bangalore. Trigent Software provides comprehensive solutions for solving business problems via outsourced software product and applications design, development and quality assurance. Founded in 1995, Trigent Software clients are Software Vendors (ISVs) and Enterprises in the High Tech, Healthcare, Education, eCommerce and Manufacturing industries and Startups.

Our industry has to be on a constant move in response to market demands. Many of the software trends we follow are temporary in nature while a few of them turn into real market demands. At present we see enterprises moving towards Cloud based deployments and be able to provide more and more sophisticated mobile solutions into their operations. The underlying applications are dominated by analytics, aggregating data from disparate sources, such as search engines, social networks, specialty databases, in addition to the more traditional internal data that enterprises have so far depended on. These needs are best supported by the cloud architectures and leverage on the go decision making for today’s enterprise. We are also responding to the semantics based technology needs for big data and internet solutions.

We see the social networks and public databases containing new types of data that has not generally been captured or stored in internal data stores. Enterprises do not fully understand how to leverage this publicly available information to enhance their business yet and we believe a number of new applications that address these needs will be forthcoming. Again, mobile computing will play a larger role in being able to deliver and capture this new information.

Mobile / tablet platforms, social network, cloud and big-data will be the big influencers in IT. Each of these has matured as individual technologies. The next wave will be how these interact, integrate and leverage each other. For example, the retail industry will invest on building multi-channel ecommerce that delivers seamless customer experience on the web, on the smart phone and on the social platforms such as Facebook and at brick and mortar stores. They need to combine a myriad of input types such as keyboard, voice, QR Codes and NFC (Near Field Communications).

Mobile payment/wallet; Near Field Communication (NFC), its support in iPhone5 and other mobile devices will generate a major consumer trend intersecting corporate IT disciplines.
