Yuriy's perspective

"Pure-play software product engineering is very quickly becoming a thing of the past. It still takes a lot of effort to master but we in EPAM no longer see it as a differentiator but rather as a foundation for becoming a true solution orchestrator. Besides quality software engineering, solution orchestration will require top notch integration, procurement, configuration, management and many other often not-technical skills... It sounds pretty simple (just as quality software engineering did just 20 years ago) but we see it as a next wave of realization of what being and staying as industry leader truly means for us."
