Polaris Software launches Canada arm

May 10, 2007 17:25 IST

IT offshoring major Polaris Software said on Thursday it has launched a nearshore application development centre and a global performance engineering and certification lab in Mississauga, Canada.

"Our Canada development centre would provide Polaris' North American customers with a cost-effective nearshore facility for undertaking various mission-critical projects," Polaris said.

Leveraging the cost advantages that Canada offers, the centre will serve as an easily accessible IT extension counter to Polaris Americas' clientele, providing the same-time-zone benefits much sought after by its US and Canada-based customers, it added.

Speaking of the inauguration of the Canada Centre, Polaris President and CEO Arup Gupta said: "Complimenting our existing software development centres in New Jersey, Singapore and Northern Ireland, the Canada Centre greatly improves Polaris' ability to serve its North America-based customers by providing them with the convenience and cost-efficiency of a nearshore facility."

Development and application certification projects for two major customers have already commenced at the facility, the company said in a communique to the Bombay Stock Exchange.

The Global PACE Lab, named after Polaris Application Certification Enterprise, will provide independent performance engineering consultancy services, ISV and product performance benchmarking, remote application performance testing and tuning etc.

Last year, Polaris entered into a strategic partnership with Mercury and is jointly developing testing performance accelerators to cater to the high-performance BFSI business ecosystem.
