Key Findings & Highlights
EPAM Systems (EPAM) is headquartered in Newtown, PA (U.S.), It was founded in 1993 in New Jersey, with its first offshore development center located in Minsk, Belarus. In 1995, EPAM began targeting technology vendors and ISVs in a product engineering role, initially working for SAP and ISVs including Hyperion, Oracle and Brio Software. This product engineering heritage evolved to include offering technology services and software.
EPAM now has ~22k FTEs across 25 countries and is aiming to maintain its 20%-25% growth rate, in part fueled by acquisitions; since 2012, it has completed 11 acquisitions. None of these are considered major acquisitions and have not had a significant direct impact on revenues; they are tuck-in acquisitions to fill out gaps in capabilities, which has driven EPAM's ability to create new offerings and enter new markets.
Its 2015 $50m acquisition of Alliance Global Services provided it with an India based delivery function, initially of ~1.1k resources, which has helped EPAM to expand beyond its Central and Eastern European delivery heritage.
EPAM's cloud services act as the foundation for its broader digital transformation services and the implementation of DevOps capabilities.
