Aspire Systems Sponsors “Confluence 2010” – a premier R&D Globalization Conference

/EIN Presswire/ Chennai, February 25, 2010:
Aspire Systems is pleased to announce that it is participating as a Silver Sponsor in Confluence 2010 – a premier R&D Globalization conference, organized by Zinnov management consulting. This Invitation-Only event is to be held in Santa Clara, California on March 17th & 18th, and will help demystify conventional thinking about globalization, facilitate knowledge sharing among senior executives in the R&D and product engineering communities, and enable interaction among peers.

Some of the guest speakers for Confluence 2010 include Ron Lang, CEO of SunGard (Higher Education); Farhat Ali, President and CEO of Fujitsu America; Gordon Payne, SVP & GM, Citrix; Dr. C. Mohan, IBM Fellow, IBM – Almaden; and Pat Conley, Adjunct Professor, Rochester Institute of Technology, among several others.

Gowri Subramanian, CEO of Aspire Systems, will be speaking at the event, along with other eminent industry personalities and will share his views on “Is globalization a constraint to innovation?”.

“We are very excited to be a part of this key event on R&D globalization. Over the past few years, the outsourced product development industry has evolved and earlier concerns around IP security and capability to build products have been addressed. Besides bringing global delivery capabilities to the table, Aspire also invests substantially in building innovative platforms that can serve as a base to start from, hence reducing time-to-market and increasing quality”, said Gowri, who believes that outsourced specialist firms can bring more than just cost advantages when building software.

Reiterates Pari Natarajan, CEO of Zinnov, “Global companies are starting to realize that emerging countries are not just a source for low cost talent but for innovation and access to new untapped markets”.

Through Confluence 2010, with its line-up of senior industry leaders sharing their insights, interactive workshops and discussion of successful case-studies, Zinnov hopes to dispel several outsourcing myths and help executives understand the right R&D globalization mix.
Aspire Systems’ CTO, Shankar Krishnamoorthy, will also be presenting at the workshop on “Agile Best Practices for Distributed Development”.
