Munjay Singh, President, Services – Persistent Systems

“IT services or outsourcing optimized for cost, size, specialization, and predictable speeds is archaic and dying. The future, which is here, is about smaller teams, shorter timeframes, and full stack technology expertise with active customer involvement. Customers win not just by responding to, but actually anticipating fast-changing market conditions. Our unique history with software development and product engineering at the very core of our DNA has given us this deep expertise in Agile.”

Anand Deshpande, Founder and CEO – Persistent Systems

“Software 4.0 is the inevitability of software driven everything, a revolution on the scale of Industry 4.0 and the future of factories and industrial manufacturing. Things, experiences, and business models are becoming software driven, powering the emergence of DevOps and continuous engineering along with the new found appreciation and need for Agile. With our leadership in Agile, Software 4.0 is shaping the next wave of growth and differentiation for Persistent.”
