I am the CEO of Ignite
, a pure play offshore software development company providing a global delivery model for customers world-wide based on top-notch Israeli software development executives managing an elite team of Eastern European developers.
Ignite’s unique approach to software outsourcing is my brainchild and based on my lessons in managing effectively offshore software development teams.
Previous to launching Ignite, I served as the Chief Architect for MIND CTI
, a public company traded on the NASDAQ that provides end-to-end billing and mediation solutions for the Telecom industry.
As a leader of MIND's architecture group, I was in charge of defining MIND’s next-generation billing solutions. I designed and managed software projects for strategic customers like Vodafone
, and managed on-going technical relationships with such partners as Oracle
As MIND’s Chief Architect, I was an integral part of the development and optimization of the global onsite-offshore delivery model initiated by MIND to meet the need for cost-effective R&D in the wake of the ‘dot.com
’ crisis. I oversaw the development of new R&D procedures to support this delivery model, defined and conducted training for R&D personnel and forged effective communications between the Israeli and the 200 people East-European offshore development center established by MIND.
I saw the potential benefit inherent in global onsite-offshore delivery model for the entire software industry. After seven years of intensive and successful work, I launched Ignite to make this proven delivery model accessible to all ISVs (independent Software Vendors).
