The company grew its product and services portfolio with the acquisitions of Fiddler, NimblePros —the leading service provider of custom software solutions and training—and the Danish company EQATEC, adding their cross-platform application analytics solution, EQATEC Analytics, to Telerik’s growing offering.
In the Most Socially Friendly Company of the Year Category, Telerik was recognized for Telerik Academy, the company’s socially responsible initiative which provides free software education to young people as well as experienced professionals looking to gain new skills for the software industry.
