Newark, CA and Ann Arbor, MI June 19, 2014 – Systems in Motion (SIM), the leader in the domestic IT services and outsourcing market, today announced it has been featured as one of five “Cool Vendors” in Gartner Inc.’s April 8 Cool Vendors in Services, 2014 Report.

According to the report, “Rapidly accelerating adoption of digital business and the enabling Nexus of Forces technologies—cloud, social, mobile and information—are changing enterprise views and expectations of their IT systems. Optimized and efficient back-office application functionality and services are critical for running the business, but attention is increasing to ensure the digital front office is driving competitiveness.”

SIM’s high-performance software development centers, located in lower-cost US metropolitan markets, but plugged into the San Francisco Bay Area’s technology ecosystem via its Silicon Valley Innovation Hub, are focused on driving competitiveness for its clients. By tightly integrating the Innovation Hub with the development centers, SIM can engineer practical innovation that enterprises need to increase their top line, while generating significant cost efficiency and the scale required to accommodate the Global 1000. Over the past four years, SIM has demonstrated that its unique service delivery model combined with its leading edge technology expertise provides better, faster and lower cost business solutions than traditional IT services competitors.

“We consider our inclusion in the Cool Vendor report by Gartner confirmation of our strategy to increase speed to market, quality and innovation through our use of Agile, onshore software development centers,” said Stephanie Moore, SIM’s EVP and Chief Strategy Officer. “Businesses today do not have time for protracted, inflexible, development cycles or rework. SIM clients are achieving extraordinary and rapid results by harnessing our US-based innovation, ideation and software creation capabilities.”
