Ci&T Achieves Fifth Appearance on International Association of Outsourcing Professionals(R) Global Outsourcing 100(R)

Value-Driven IT Services Provider Recognized in Leaders Category on Annual Ranking of the World's Top Outsourcing Companies (February 21, 2012)

KING OF PRUSSIA, PA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/21/12 -- Ci&T, a Nearshore provider of value-driven web and mobile application services and software product engineering, today announced that it has been named to the Leaders Category of the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals® (IAOP®) Global Outsourcing 100®. Ci&T's 2012 listing marks its fifth appearance on the annual ranking of the world's top providers, as the company continues to deliver value-driven Nearshore application services through a unique combination of high-performance development teams, commitment to innovation and Lean culture.

The Global Outsourcing 100 and its sub-lists are essential references for companies seeking new and expanded relationships with the best companies in the industry. The lists include service provider and advisory companies from around the world that provide the full spectrum of outsourcing services.

"In today's economy, it is more important than ever for outsourcing end users to be able to easily identify and select the right company for their outsourcing needs," said IAOP Chairman, Michael Corbett. "The Global Outsourcing 100 and The World's Best Outsourcing Advisors lists are essential for companies who are looking for proven leaders and rising stars in the outsourcing industry."

Companies on the Global Outsourcing 100 are ranked on quality following a rigorously judged application process that examines multiple criteria. Judging is done by an independent panel organized each year by IAOP, and made up of industry experts with personal experience in selecting outsourcing service providers for their companies. Participating companies are judged on:


1. Size and growth in revenue, employees, centers/offices and countries served.
2. Customer experience as demonstrated through the value being created at the company's top customers.
3. Depth and breadth of competencies as demonstrated through industry recognition, relevant certifications and investment in the development of people, processes and technologies.
4. Management capabilities as reflected in the experience and accomplishments of the business' top leaders and investments in management systems that ensure outsourcing success.

"The 'software factory' approach prevalent in application outsourcing is simply ineffective for companies that want to receive real value from their engagements," said Cesar Gon, CEO, Ci&T. "At Ci&T we've built a culture that eschews the typical model, with high-performance teams that constantly deliver value in a Nearshore model through innovation and a Lean focus. Our continued growth is a testament to our successful approach, and our recognition in the Leaders category of this year's IAOP Global Outsourcing 100 provides excellent validation of our achievements."
