ISG Recognized for Role in Establishing ZF Tech Center
Firm Wins Praise from Client for Engineering Services Work
BANGALORE, India, March 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Information Services Group (ISG) (NASDAQ: III), a leading global technology research and advisory firm, said today its client, ZF Friedrichshafen AG, a leading automotive supplier in driveline and chassis technology as well as active and passive safety technology, has recognized ISG for its engineering services work in helping ZF establish a new India Technology Center in Hyderabad.
ISG Engineering Services worked with ZF to conceptualize its technology center, helping the client develop a business case, analyze which engineering services could be offshored to India, design the center's organization and operating model, and select its sourcing partners (TCS and Tech Mahindra). ISG also established a program management office to ensure all aspects of the center's development and launch were delivered according to plan.
Dr. Stefan Sommer, CEO of ZF Friedrichshafen AG, recognized ISG for its contribution to the ZF India Technology Center at a launch event earlier this month. ISG Engineering Services advisors Karan Kamal and Sriram Rangachary, who served as project leader, were on hand to accept a certificate and a plaque from Sommer on behalf of the firm. ZF project sponsors Mamatha Chamarthi, chief digital officer, and Dr. Eckart VonWesterholt, vice president of Research & Development, were also on hand to offer their thanks to ISG.
"We congratulate ZF on the opening of its India Technology Center, and we are extremely honored to have played such an important part in the center's development," said Todd Lavieri, president of ISG Americas who oversees ISG Engineering Services.
"This is a watershed moment for our Engineering Services practice," said Lavieri. "Since we established this specialized practice area, we have provided advice and support on all phases of engineering services outsourcing for our clients. However, this was the first time we put all of our expertise to work across the board to help a client develop a new engineering services center from the ground up, and to get the facility up and running in record time."
The new ZF India Technology Center will be dedicated to electronics, embedded software and mechanical engineering. It will support ZF's global development teams while enabling the company to accelerate local product development supporting ZF customers in India.
