DataArt responds to growing demand in DACH region - expands into Germany and extends Polish operation Wednesday 6 May 2015 PDF Print The European financial industry is going through a serious transformation, where outdated systems are being replaced NEW YORK, LONDON, MUNICH & WROCLAW – May 6, 2015 – Fast-growing technology consulting and end-to-end solution company DataArt today announced further expansion in Western Europe, with the opening of offices in Munich, Germany and Wroclaw, Poland. The move brings the DataArt global location count to 15. DataArt reported record-breaking revenue in 2014, a significant part of which came from European clients. With business in the DACH region (Germany, Austria, Switzerland) doubling last year, the latest expansion responds to market demands and aims to provide the assurance of an on-the-ground service for clients based in those countries. “The new move responds to increasing demand in the region and is in line with our commitment to working in partnership with our clients,” said Alexei Miller, Managing Director, DataArt New York. “Continental Europe now has significant demand for our services and we anticipate that this is likely to increase following the expansion. We are currently investing in building solutions that have local ‘flavor’.” The Munich office will initially focus on projects in the financial services, media and IoT sectors. “The European financial industry is going through a serious transformation, where outdated systems are being replaced and disruptive technologies have permeated all areas of the banking sector,” said Steve Pscheid of DataArt Deutschland. “At the same time, the IoT revolution has changed the thinking and the landscape in many industries, especially in automotive and home appliances. This is a perfect time for DataArt to make its mark in Germany, where many potential clients could benefit from DataArt’s expert service offerings.” The Wroclaw office opening comes less than a year after DataArt launched its first Polish R&D center in Lublin, which has grown to 100 employees. “Poland continues to be one of the best choices for DataArt in terms of cultural affinity, technical expertise and cost considerations,” said Mikhail Zavileysky, General Manager at DataArt. “Located in western Poland, Wroclaw was chosen for its reputable Technical University, well known for producing world class engineers. We aim to foster an innovative ecosystem with local universities, advancing our Open Source and R&D projects in the areas of IoT, healthcare and financial technology.” - ends- Press Contacts For press enquiries, photography, or to set up an interview with a DataArt spokesperson in your region please contact: US & Americas UK & Europe Vica Miller +1 (212)378-4108 x 4014 +44 (0) 2070-999464 x 4014 firstname.lastname@example.org Lief Schneider +44 7971 950 899 +44 (0) 207 159 3470 email@example.com Notes to editors Munich office The Munich office will provide a full line of services, from sales to strategic tech consulting, local project management and support.
