MEMPHIS, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cook Systems International, a southeastern supplier of innovative IT services and staffing solutions, today announced its new initiative FastTrack’D, the U.S. source for Java developers. Now in operation to address the country’s crisis-level shortage of skilled Java developers, FastTrack’D will scale to produce 1,000 skilled Java developers per year in the United States. Labor pressure for Java developers is hovering at one candidate per ten open positions for the third consecutive year, according to recent data from CareerBuilder.com. Cook Systems has developed a unique model to prepare and deploy highly-skilled and cost effective onshore talent to meet the demands of U.S. companies. FastTrack’D is currently generating Java developers out of locations in Memphis, Tennessee; Columbus, Ohio; and Richardson, Texas.
“We are leading the renaissance to reclaim a stronghold on Java in the U.S. and reduce our dependence on offshore support and the challenges that come with it”
Both demand and competition are at an all-time high for Java developers globally, and moving Java projects offshore is rapidly becoming a ‘must’ for companies that rely on the code for a high volume of IT systems and solutions. The trend in onshore and offshore Java resources has seen increases in cost and a decrease in reliability and quality in recent years; the domestic crisis has been compounded by government policy issues associated with the H-1B visa workers. In an effort to redirect the trend toward favorable conditions for onshore development, Cook Systems created FastTrack’D as a resource that scales nationally and accelerates availability of individuals and teams of expert developers for short and long term projects.
“We are leading the renaissance to reclaim a stronghold on Java in the U.S. and reduce our dependence on offshore support and the challenges that come with it,” said Wayne Cook, CEO of Cook Systems International and creator of FastTrack’D. “Our approach will establish a core foundation of talent which IT suppliers around the country can access and nurture to dramatically impact the costs and quality equation in onshore Java development.”
FastTrack’D places and supports developers using team and managed staffing models to help clients maximize their investment and achieve their Java development goals quickly and efficiently. By leveraging a senior technical lead on each deployment and offering a blended rate based on skill level, the team staffing approach will deliver much-needed Java skills in the U.S. at reduced rates that are competitive to offshore options. FastTrack’D guarantees the productivity and effectiveness of its Java developers with a no-cost replacement and on-going technical support.
