New York, May 5, 2009 - DataArt, a high-end software development company with R&D centers in Eastern Europe, was named the world’s top 100 service provider by IAOP for the fourth consecutive year. DataArt was also honored as 2009 Best 20 Company by Services Offered: Research & Development.

IAOP gave the highest possible ranking to DataArt’s achievements and industry recognition, followed by company growth, client references and employee management. IAOP included DataArt in several Honors sub lists, including Best 10 Rising Star by Industry Focus: Financial Services (Banking & Markets) and Entertainment & Media, and Best 20 Rising Star by Regions Served: U.S., Western Europe and UK.

“These companies on the Global Outsourcing 100 list have what it takes to succeed in the new game of outsourcing,” said Michael Corbett, Chairman of the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals. IAOP established the lists as resources to help companies compare providers and advisors using an objective methodology. Hundreds of companies were judged by an eight-person independent panel that examined 18 criteria, including size and growth, customer references, organizational competencies and management capabilities.

DataArt continuous inclusion into the Global Outsourcing Rising Star category speaks of the company’s excellent track record of providing its clients with expert IT services which range from complex systems for capital markets, to online travel booking engines to mobile telecom solutions. “DataArt continues to strengthen its offerings in key industry verticals, and we’re glad the effort doesn’t go unnoticed,” said Eugene Goland, President of DataArt.
