Mindtree Celebrates Successful Inaugural Year at Its U.S. Delivery Center

 Mindtree, a global information technology solutions company, today announced the successful first year of its U.S. Delivery Center in Gainesville, Florida. Mindtree has grown its presence in Gainesville significantly in just one year, establishing it as the go-to onshore source for agile and digital business expertise. The company is hosting a first birthday celebration to mark its success in adding over 100 jobs to the community, the addition of several Fortune 500 companies to its roster of clients and the upcoming expansion of the center in early 2014.

"We're so excited by the Gainesville center that we've now started using it to stand up our very first testing center of excellence," said Tony Skipper, CIO Americas, AIG Property Casualty. "The guidance that Mindtree has given us, the partnership between the two firms, is outstanding."

"This first year in Gainesville has been an extraordinary one for Mindtree. We have cultivated a solid reputation as an innovator in agile and digital business solutions. Our growth is ahead of schedule, and we've made some great friendships in the community along the way," said Joelle Smith, General Manager of the Mindtree Gainesville Center. "Mindtree is all about 'right-sourcing' -- that is providing a range of delivery options for clients to craft the most effective solution. This is just the beginning of many more years of success here in Gainesville."

The celebrations begin on October 24th with an open house at the Gainesville center in Ayers Technology Plaza, 720 SW 2nd Avenue, South Tower from 4pm to 6pm followed by a southern-style soiree. On October 25th, Allie Young, Gartner Vice President and Distinguished Analyst, will speak about U.S. domestic sourcing for IT. Presentations on the future trends of agile and digital solutions by expert Mindtree Minds will follow. Partners such as representatives from The University of Florida's Engineering Department will also be on hand discussing talent local to Gainesville and resources available in the community.

Mindtree's first U.S. Delivery Center is located at Innovation Square, just blocks from The University of Florida. The center's close proximity to UF has provided Mindtree with the advantage of convenient access to its students. It's one of the reasons Mindtree enjoys a valuable partnership with the school's engineering and computer science students. Mindtree continues to seek talent from the University of Florida as well as other universities across the country. The Gainesville center is well on its way to bringing a promised 400 jobs to Gainesville over the next five years.

Mindtree possesses a decade of experience in executing Agile projects with an iterative and fast-paced process that fosters collaboration in a distributed environment. In addition, Mindtree has a deep understanding of current and emerging technologies, and advanced solutions for web, mobile, and ecommerce applications.
