Forte Group Expands to Full-Service Technology Company
Company announces new, flexible service models to provide high-impact, on-shore support to enterprise IT and business organizations
CHICAGO, February 13, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Forte Group, a Chicago-based software solutions and managed services company, today formally announced the expansion of two new enterprise engagement models under the umbrella of Global Services and Solutions (GSS). Forte Group created these engagement models in response to an increasing demand for client flexibility and outcome-based software delivery in the Chicago market.
GSS will operate as a fully dedicated business unit that will partner with enterprise IT and business organizations to accelerate and evolve their software engineering efforts and develop key software solutions.
“Bridging the gap between people and technology has always been our passion,” Steve Kreynin, Forte Group CEO, said. “GSS represents the next phase of that vision. Each organization we work with has unique challenges. GSS offers flexible, value-driven approaches that match the right technology team with each of those challenges.”
GSS is comprised of Managed Services and Solutions. Managed Services partners with IT enterprises by offering a dedicated, cross-functional team or teams that seamlessly integrate with an existing IT enterprise team or one or more existing product lines to accelerate and evolve delivery and engagement. The Solutions model offers business organizations and their IT teams the ability to build or rebuild a custom software application without concerning themselves with “how” that application emerges and evolves. Solutions is fully outcome-based, focusing the client only on what is valuable to their business. That value is effectively achieved through the active engagement with the onshore product owner.
“We created GSS because we see a need for greater flexibility in the process of building software with clients whose value and priorities are constantly shifting,” Cornel (C.J.) Montano, Forte Group Partner and GSS Managing Director, said. “Companies need the right engagement model where it makes the most sense. Whether a client needs to bolster its IT staff to scale production, improve IT processes, or turn an idea into a business solution, we have the right team that’s custom-tailored to the job.
Montano, a pragmatic agilist who frequently compares software engineering to fine craftsmanship, founded Agile Unicorn, an agile solutions consultancy startup, in 2015. Prior to launching the business, Montano worked in agile engineering, quality assurance, and product management leadership positions with CME Group, kCura, and Echo Global Logistics. In 2017, Montano joined forces with Forte Group to bring his vision of a high-value managed service to life.
“C.J. has an unwavering dedication to quality, and his value-driven vision makes him the ideal person to lead this next phase in our company’s evolution,” Kreynin said. “GSS allows us to better serve the needs of our enterprise clients and I’m thrilled to be a part of that transformation within Forte Group.”
