As part of its commitment to develop core competency in JEMS products, Patni will establish a JEMS Center of Excellence.

Speaking on the partnership Harish Bhat, Sr. Vice-President and Head of the ISV Business Unit, Patni, said, “Open Source is now mainstream and ISVs need help incorporating open source software into their products. This partnership offers ISVs a compelling value proposition, combining our domain expertise with the industry’s most popular open source application platform.”
