[Press Release] Do iT Lean, a global application delivery company, today announced that it has opened its first office in Bhopal, India to better address the growing Indian and Middle East markets. This is the company’s second move to expand its presence in the Asia Pacific region and follows the opening of the Malaysia office back in May. This move reflects the growing demand for experienced developers using the OutSystems modern application development platform to support digital transformation and business innovation projects across the region.
Frederico Ferreira, Do iT Lean’s CEO, explains the company’s interest in this market “Do iT Lean has been on a growth path the last few years. We view 2020 as a foundational year to scale our operations with the opening of these new delivery centers that help support the needs of our global customers. Our new Indian office allows us to increase our overall delivery capability while at the same time provide customers in the region with the local support they need.”
The new Bhopal office is staffed with a team of over 25 people, but the plan includes a significant increase of OutSystems talent in less than a year to support this new delivery hub outside of Portugal. The local team includes senior talent and people with multiple years of experience with the OutSystems technology guaranteeing strong know-how, training and delivery. An example of this is Pramod Jain, Do iT Lean India’s Head of Technology and an OutSystems MVP, who is well known in the OutSystems community and the host of many local events, hackathons and user group meet ups.
“It is exciting to see the growth and interest for the OutSystems platform in India”, said Subrato Bandhu, OutSystems Regional Vice-President – India. “Our software platform is revolutionizing how organizations build and deliver business transforming applications and this is forcing us to grow our team and rely on our partner community to support the explosive growth in India.”
Do iT Lean India started their local operations with one of India’s leading financial services companies, the Edelweiss Group. Led by a visionary transformation leader and CTO, Rukesh Patel, the company has been going through disruptive changes focused on leveraging technology to simplify the business process for multiple types of loans on a single integrated lending platform.
According to Rukesh, “With power comes greater responsibility. Having in-house skills was important but at the same time leveraging the power of the OutSystems platform requires an experienced hand. It’s like driving a Ferrari. In Do iT Lean we found an experienced partner who provides local support, both tools and process expertise, and aligns with our vision of delivering quality business value faster to the market.”
Shashank Diwan Head of Delivery & Business Development for Do iT Lean India concludes, “It makes us very proud to be opening this office with an amazing pool of talent and happy customers like Edelweiss. Lots of families are struggling with the pandemic and feel a need to stay close to home and take care of their families. We offer that chance. We are allowing for people to leverage their technology skills with employment opportunities right in their hometown. The company’s objective is to put in place the organizational structure for an accelerated ramp up period in 2021 and for the team to grow from 25 to 100 people while servicing more and more local customers and supporting our international customer base”.
