Sonata Software, a global IT software services provider, today opened a new Software Development Facility in Redmond, Washington. The centre was inaugurated by City Council President, Hank Margeson. The centre is part of Sonata's strategy to be a truly global company and will help Sonata serve its clients better in an increasingly changing global delivery model that demands closer interaction with clients.
Sonata is expanding its existing talent in US operations with this facility to over 100+ employees, to better service the needs of its long standing customers.

In LEAD, Sonata provides a comprehensively designed approach that balances the needs of graduates and the dynamic opportunities in the IT industry. The program combines an Earn-as-you-Learn paid training phase in emerging new technology areas, with subsequent opportunities to work on projects with marquee clients. "Sonata's commitment to partner with our community colleges and universities and train local graduates in high demand software specialties is a unique and welcome approach to narrowing our talent gap" said OneRedmond CEO Bart Phillips.
On the occasion, Srikar Reddy, CEO & MD of Sonata Software said "We believe that having development facilities closer to our clients and building scale and capability in specialised technologies and applications are an integral part of our long term strategy to be a partner of choice in select verticals and specialised horizontals. This development facility will enable deeper engagement and business development opportunities in the market. We look forward to building on our decade plus association with some of the most respected US enterprises and take that further in serving them and the community here. We thank the city of Redmond & OneRedmond for their support in enabling this entire initiative."
Mayor John Marchione of the city of Redmond said "Sonata Software brings the type of jobs that our residents are qualified for. This opening will assist Redmond's effort to create a vibrant economic environment"
