Earlier it was Sri Lankan firm Millennium IT that broke into the London Stock Exchange (and was subsequently bought over by the group that owns the exchange). Now another local firm, Efutures, has entered the domain of Wall Street, the Mecca of financial markets in the world.
The Sri Lankan web and software solutions provider has been able to win contracts from several Wall Street firms in the United States, to provide support services. These Wall Street firms are ranked among the top five financial firms in the world, according to an Efutures statement.
Prashan Nagendra, Director of Efutures, said the company has diversified their services into providing support in managing, maintaining and deploying servers in a mixed environment of Solaris, Linux, VMWare, AIX and Windows running infrastructure and traing applications.
Deploying servers, monitoring, troubleshoot and resolving problems, daily production support, software installation, fault analysis and recovery, deploying middleware applications, assistance in application disaster recovery testing and maintenance of security compliance are some of the expert services provided to these Wall Street financial institutions by Efutures, the company said. It didn’t name the US firms.
“The company has already engaged a team of software engineers and support engineers in order to provide these services to two of the leading financial firms in the United States. The team providing services to these firms is expected to be increase up to 50 by the end 2011,” it added.
EFutures handles offshore software projects and says it has one of the most impressive portfolios in the local and international software industry. The company places emphasis on customer satisfaction, and as such development is based on customer specifications for a software product.
