After a two-week-trip on the West coast of the U.S (see articles here and here), Pentalog has been reconsidering the idea of a new destination. This time we are planning a trip to the East coast, to Boston (April 30th – May8th 2013).
Capital of the state of Massachusetts, Boston is among the top 10 most economically powerful cities in the world (see table, source McKinsey Global Institute, May 2012).
Boston is a famous higher education center with a strong emphasis on scientific, engineering and technological education and research (Cambridge, MIT, Harvard, Boston University). This city is the second technological cluster after California’s Silicon Valley, a complete ecosystem ready to adopt and promote the emerge of products, services and innovative business models.
We consider Boston as a possible destination to accommodate
In these election times, in France as well as in the USA, this is a popular word. Easy to use and definitely catchy, it reconciles the extreme left, the extreme right, the extreme center and the elderly. It works almost on its own! There is a risk involved, meaning the potential for a lot of foolish economic decisions, but in general politicians and journalists tend not to care about it.
For example, we systematically forget to say that, when an Indian company orders 127 Airbus planes (which will bring 10 billion to the South-West of France and Northern Germany), this happens because there are more and more Indians who can fly due to earning higher incomes. Of course we want to sell these Airbus planes to them! But it would be even better if theRead more « Relocation, tax spoliation… just of few thoughts concerning the demagogues from all walks of life »

Situation and perspectives in the Arab world: What are the opportunities for France? – The Franco-Arab Chamber of Commerce (National Assembly on January 23)
Last Monday, together with Guy, my father, I attended a fascinating conference at the National Assembly, on this Arab spring which looks down on the change of seasons, as it began almost a year ago (in the middle of winter). The crazy events in this area took place exactly at a time when Pentalog (IT services company) was finally considering entering this new culture.
Everybody is thinking of the fall of Gaddafi, so easily achieved in the end. One may wonder why nobody did it at the time of UTA’s DC10 or of Lockerbie. There were even more legitimate reasons to act in those days, as there were real acts of war against the West. At the same time last year, who would have thought that NATO would declare war on Libya several
Pentalog is competing for 3 giant contracts, on its nearshore locations, with prospects in Middle East, Germany and Romania
It is not our business policy to speak about potential contracts before signing them. However, these 3 particular business deals have a highly significant meaning. Their respective volume, in countries which are very far from each other, prove to what extent our nearshore service brand has henceforth become well-known. In Romania, Pentalog brand stands out as a national leader whose name is the first conjured up by those who want to carry out significant projects in sectors like software and internet. In Germany, our IT services company holds a place which can be henceforth comparable with the one held in France, not so long ago, in 2006 or 2007. We have gained our position in less than 3 years and we can see that things are definitely evolving. At the end of 2011,Read more « Pentalog is competing for 3 giant contracts, on its nearshore locations, with prospects in Middle East, Germany and Romania »
We made it, we are achieving business development in Asia. The rumour was going around the block (well, the blog) for a long time now, but we wanted to wait for the first deal to be closed before letting you know more about it.
In addition to enhancing its production capacities by setting up the new branch office in Cluj, Romania, at the end of July this year and very likely another one in Tunisia shortly, the Pentalog group strives to increase sales in other parts of the world as well, namely in Israel, in the US, in Poland, and, of course, in Asia as we have been present in Vietnam for the past 3 years now!
We knew right from the very beginning that selling in Vietnam would be (quite) different from ourRead more « First contract signed in the Pacific-Asia area »
Among the clear French-speaking advantage, undoubted education quality, but also political unrest and mass emigration, Tunisia combines at the same time good points and drawbacks.
I have been wondering for a long time why this little country couldn’t see its largest companies develop explosively on the international market, supported by an unfailing friendship with France, with a Mediterranean culture and an educational system that overshadows many European countries as well as its neighbors. I have always felt attracted by this country, but the events that took place here last winter have, once again, prevented me from coming here and looking for answersRead more « Tunisia: a new Pentalog nearshore entity could be set up soon »
Sophie, Eric and I are going on a trip to Tunisia with the purpose of making local observations. Pentalog (IT services company) has always regarded Tunisia as one of the most appealing countries of the French-language nearshoring field, but the company’s commercial calendar, followed by the recent events which occurred in the country have prevented us from planning on opening a new office here. By “commercial calendar” I mean that our recent deployment to Germany (we have clients in Hamburg, Hanover, Frankfurt, Mannheim, Stuttgart, Berlin and Munich), or even to Switzerland and Austria, constantly turn us towards Central and Eastern Europe. Whether we like it or not, German-speaking countries turn to the former Austro-Hungarian Empire as naturally as France turns to the Maghreb. We have therefore continued opening nearshore units in Romania (whereRead more « French-language offshoring and nearshoring: 3-day trip to Tunisia »
The boom in web models brings about great changes to the economic exchanges. They can provide purchasing services with a great potential for efficiency and with considerable strategic opportunities. However, the purchase of offshore services remains confined to an unadapted local information process, which is too much related to the purchase of local consulting services, due to national listing agreements. Nevertheless, the offshore sector includes numerous strategic methods for reducing the customers’ capex. The productivity of commercial departments of IT companies, which hasn’t changed over the last 20 years, affects prices and customer satisfaction. A few thoughts about it…
If I had time… oh, another post which begins with an incantation! So, if I had time, I would like to carry out a detailed study on the appropriateness of IT service purchasing models which areRead more « The purchase of IT services must be adapted to the offshore environment »
