excerpt from "Close Collaboration," CIO Decisions, July 2005

"We expected that the efficiencies would be different between one person here and one in India. We expected maybe 75% efficiency, but [with Symphony Services] we find it 100% or better. With the right planning, the offshore-onshore hybrid is very scalable, cost effective and robust for companies of any size."

excerpt from session on R&D Globalization and Innovation at Software 2007

"To us, innovation is the result of recognizing opportunity and bringing together the right people-wherever they are-to get it done. But you have to approach global R&D; right. There are no second class citizens."

"Our multi-national architectural group meets weekly and is focused on making a better product. The team we have in Bangalore with Symphony is not extra help. They are a vital part of our overall team. We've turned over almost everything about our most important products. We are leveraging engineering talent and treating them as equals in full cooperation and collaboration. We have been very pleased."
