Engagement


Based in Kyiv, Ukraine, a team of GlobalLogic engineers work in an environment that replicates Avid’s U.S. facilities, including state of the art hardware and software labs, aligned management structure, and dedicated support personnel. GlobalLogic teams are seamlessly integrated into Avid’s own workforce and connected deeply to all phases of Avid’s product life cycle: from development and testing to deployment and end-customer support. “We couldn’t innovate as quickly as we do without our GlobalLogic engineers,” says Chris Gahagan, Avid’s SVP of Products and Services. “We consider their contributions as valuable as any Avid employee.”

 Process


The partnership with Avid resulted in disruptive solutions, products, and services that people consume everyday: films, videos, music recordings, TV shows, live concerts, and news broadcasts. Avid’s strategic vision, to which GlobalLogic has directly contributed, addresses the entire media value chain—from the way media is created and managed, to the methods used to monetize, distribute, and track content. All of this enables broadcast, video, and audio professionals to connect with their audiences in more powerful, efficient, collaborative, and profitable ways.
