SOUTHBOROUGH, Mass., – (March 08, 2018)–Virtusa Corporation (NASDAQ GS: VRTU), a global business consulting and IT outsourcing company that accelerates business outcomes for its clients,has been included in Gartner’sMarket Guide for Data Science and Machine Learning Service Providers. The report, published on October 31, 2017, states: “Data and analytics leaders looking for support for their data science and machine learning projects should use this research to identify and engage with candidate service providers to fill the analytics deficit and augment their existing data scientists with specific skills.”

Virtusa’s Big Data Competency Center offers consulting services for roadmap development, tool evaluations, solution architecture and design and end-to-end implementation services using big data ecosystems such as Hadoop, NO SQL and graph databases.
