DataArt Celebrates Its Ninth Birthday
DataArt celebrated its ninth birthday on April 30, 2006. Since opening its first St. Petersburg office, the company has developed some of the most innovative technology solutions, including the first Russian Web portal Mail.ru, currently boasting 20 million users.
Since 1997, DataArt opened nine offices in different cities around the world, including New York, London (UK), Silicon Valley and Jacksonville (FL). The company has tripled its revenue in the last three years, and became a notable technology player in financial services and telecom markets. Last year alone, DataArt established a long term relationship with 33 new clients while maintaining client retention rate at 90%. DataArt has recently been recognized by Business Week as one of the top emerging outsourcing providers in Russia and Eastern Europe, and was ranked among top IT services companies on the Rising Star list in the IAOP's Global Outsourcing 100.
"This has been an exciting and rewarding journey," said Eugene Goland, founder and President of DataArt, "and we look forward to completing some monumental projects by our 10th anniversary".
