Ness Perceives Market Opportunities and Strengthens the Personnel
American owners believe the innovative potential of Czech IT experts
Prague – February 20, 2015 – Ness Technologies, Inc., a global provider of complex solutions and business services in the field of information technologies, has been recruiting more experts and strengthening its business position in the field of application of modern technologies and outsourcing after its recent reinforcement of management.
Ness Technologies, owned by the Rohatyn Group, which is an American investment group (owning e.g. the JPMorgan Chase bank), perceives many market opportunities.
Today, companies are struggling with the need to reduce costs of IT operations while, at the same time, they need to innovate in order to stay competitive. That is why Outsourcing of IT services experiences a kind of renaissance. The era of Smart Grids has begun, health care is waiting for eHealth, the field of Mobility is rapidly developing and IT security becomes increasingly important. Not only in connection with the new Act on Cyber Security. According to the analysis, the domestic labor market lacks approximately 12 thousand experienced security experts. And there is nothing less at stake than the security of data and information infrastructure of the state and budgetary organizations.
And because IT is a field founded on people, their ideas and thoughts, Ness puts emphasis especially on the quality of its teams. Apart from experienced experts, the quality is ensured thanks to the cooperation with university students.
“Ness interacts with students already during their studies. They can choose the topic of their thesis on a current problem addressed by our teams. The student can participate on the solution of a real problem with the possibility of paid practical training, mentoring, Ness experts organize lectures at the university departments… Ness is more creative in innovations thanks to the contact with universities, which is in turn appreciated by our clients,” says Pavel Mičánek, Head of Human Resources, Ness Technologies in the Czech Republic.
Ness also participates in the role of investigator in grants for Technology Agency and international cooperation within the EU Horizon2020 programs. Last year, the joint solution of Ness, Vodafone and the University of Olomouc was nominated for the Czech Innovation award in the category “Innovative Company”.
