Syntel Named in Gartner Hype Cycle for Application Services

TROY, Mich., Aug. 20, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Syntel, Inc. (Nasdaq:SYNT), a global provider of digital transformation, information technology and knowledge process services to Global 2000 companies, today announced that it has been identified as a sample vendor in the Gartner "Hype Cycle for Application Services, 2015" report.

Syntel was named in the Application Modernization Services category, which Gartner defines as "activities offered by service providers to preserve and extend the useful life of enterprise applications and to modify underlying infrastructure to achieve desired IT or business outcomes."

Syntel's suite of end-to-end application modernization solutions includes modernization consulting, re-architecture, application re-engineering, transcoding, replication, UI modernization and ecosystem migration services. Syntel's approach to legacy migration focuses on enabling clients to embrace the digital paradigm by combining the power of existing legacy investments with the next generation of digital development capabilities.

Syntel's modernization services are driven by the Exit Legacy portal, a cloud-based modernization platform that provides a complete suite of tools, accelerators and reporting capabilities to enable a fast, low-risk, automated transition from Legacy to modern technologies.

Developed by Syntel based on its experience with complex migration projects, Exit Legacy provides complete lifecycle support for analysis and migration projects and delivers migrations as much as 30% faster, and an estimated 35% cost reduction over traditional migration techniques.

Syntel was also named by Gartner in the Application Testing Services category, which, according to the report, "is a comprehensive term used to capture all types of validation and verification services for the purposes of application quality control and quality assurance."
