Perficient adds mobile division offering IBM solutions
IT consulting firm Perficient today announced it is launching a dedicated IBM mobility practice to offer services around IBM’s Worklight, a mobile application platform for smart phones and tablets.
The launch of the new division comes after increased demand from companies for mobile apps for both customers and employees, company officials said in a statement.
“Mobile is having a profound impact on the market today. However, if companies want to have a successful mobile strategy, it takes more than just developing a sleek-looking app,” said Hari Madamalla, vice president of Perficient’s IBM BPM and industry solutions practice. “Mobility is placing new demands on IT for effective usability, architecture and development approaches. Users are demanding fast-paced delivery yet require an engaging user experience, a secure and consistent architecture, and a well-defined development methodology.”
Town and Country-based Perficient, led by President and CEO Jeffrey Davis, had net income of $4.4 million the fourth quarter, which ended Dec. 31. The quarterly earnings were 61 percent higher than the same quarter the previous year.
Perficient (Nasdaq: PRFT) had revenue of $83.1 million in the quarter, which was up 18 percent from the fourth quarter of 2011.
