Virtusa to deliver SharePoint solutions in Sri Lanka with Microsoft

Colombo, February 11, 2009: Virtusa Corporation (NASDAQ: VRTU), a global information technology (IT) services company that provides IT consulting, technology implementation and application outsourcing services through an enhanced global delivery model, today announced that it has plans to venture into a partnership with Microsoft to provide consultation towards Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 services in Sri Lanka.

Enterprises are turning their attention to the next wave of productivity gains through collaboration. Whether it is collaboration in document creation, workflow approval, people-driven processes or vertical applications, huge productivity gains can be had when work is shared. This is particularly true where your workforce is geographically dispersed or where multiple departments share a common project – such as when sales, manufacturing, contracts, legal and project management groups pursue a large work order.

Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS) is the cornerstone for corporate collaboration applications, and is typically imbedded in Microsoft enterprise licensing agreements. MOSS has recently evolved with new tools and templates, and can transform critical business functions in ways that formerly required many man hours in custom development.

Virtusa’s SharePoint service offerings include architecture, design, development, testing and migration of SharePoint powered collaboration applications in number of areas including the following:

  • Internal portals and intranets, enabling multiple locations to share ideas and materials
  • Document workflow and archival – such as for work orders, marketing collateral, contracts
  • Project collaboration – such as managing deals through the sales, contract, delivery and support stages
  • HR workflow – such as performance appraisals and scorecards, training management
  • Business intelligence – such as publishing sales forecast on a departmental dashboard

Druvi Jayamanne Associate Director – Sales and Client Services for the Middle East and Asia Pacific region for Virtusa Corporation said “We look forward to serving the Sri Lankan enterprise clients. We bring deep expertise in serving leading organizations in the US and Europe for over 12 years. We have a strong well tuned proven best of breed processes and excellent track record of having worked with Fortune 500 companies spanning the Banking, Financial Services, Telecommunication, Manufacturing, Retail and Technology sectors.
