Venice Consulting Group Completes Acquisition Of Nearshore Development Leader Sieena Software


Combined company provides rapid development and deployment of complex technical projects using their hybrid nearshore model

VENICE, CA. April 26, 2006 — Venice Consulting Group (VCG), a software development and consulting firm based in Venice California, today announced the completion of its acquisition of Sieena Software. The combination of VCG and Sieena creates one of the nation’s fastest growing and most innovative technology development firms using the proven hybrid nearshore development model.

The acquisition brings together Sieena’s seasoned technology team in Monterrey, Mexico with VCG’s leadership and delivery teams in the US, providing clients with a deep resource base and a broad skill set to draw upon. The combined company will allow VCG to deliver best-in-class development services to the marketplace within a secure and cost effective model. Sieena will continue to be managed by their proven leadership team in Monterrey and have better access to capital and resources to drive future growth.

"Companies are looking for technology partners that can deliver projects on time and on budget," says Jake Ryan, managing partner at VCG. "As we've perfected the nearshore development model, Venice Consulting and Sieena together will provide a better ROI and cost-benefit compared to traditional offshore outsourcing while lowering the risks involved. We give our clients a faster time to market with the unique capability to meet tighter deadlines that businesses need to compete in today's market. With our hybrid nearshore model we're essentially redefining the way companies approach software development."

The hybrid model of “nearshore” development is used to describe a system where local project management drive the project while the offshore development team is based in Mexico as opposed to India, China or Eastern Europe. Benefits include lower risk development, strong cost/benefit, world-class quality, better business cultural alignment and closer geographic proximity to US teams.

“The new relationship between our companies provides us with important stability and growth opportunities which make us an ideal choice for development projects,” says Mauricio Duran, President of Sieena Software and Vice President of Nearshore Development for VCG. “Venice Consulting has doubled their revenues for the past four years, and is on pace to do so for a fifth consecutive year. Needless to say, we’re excited about the future prospects.”
