OTTAWA, ON June 8, 2016—Pythian, a 400-person global IT services company that helps companies adopt disruptive technologies to better compete, today announced that it has been selected as a Global Outsourcing 100® Rising Star for 2016 by the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals® (IAOP®).

The 2016 Global Outsourcing 100 and The World’s Best Outsourcing Advisors recognizes the world’s best outsourcing service providers and advisors. Judging is based on a rigorous scoring methodology that includes an independent review by an independent panel of IAOP customer members with extensive experience in selecting outsourcing service providers and advisors for their organizations.

“Aggressively adopting new technology is transformative, but comes with associated security and availability risks. With Pythian as a partner, companies can compete by adopting disruptive new platforms with confidence,” stated Paul Vallée, Pythian founder and CEO. “Pythian works closely with clients to apply emerging technologies, identify opportunities to compete with cost efficiency, engineering velocity and data leverage all the while providing related ongoing managed services in hard-to-source talent domains. Another benefit to working with Pythian is that our global team of outlier experts are always available when problems arise, making sure that projects run smoothly from beginning to end,” added Vallée.

“Buyers understand there are hundreds of qualified service providers and advisors out there, but what they really need to understand now is what makes each one exceptional,” said IAOP CEO, Debi Hamill. “The Global Outsourcing 100 and World’s Best Advisors lists have done just that. We’re proud to recognize Pythian for their commitment to providing service delivery that puts the client first, finding the right solution for a specific challenge, regardless of location.”
