Sigma Technology expands to Kosovo to strengthen its global IT delivery and acquires Appbites


Sigma Technology Group establishes a new presence in Kosovo by acquiring Appbites, a Kosovo software development company offering complete solutions and expertise in software development and design. Through this acquisition, Sigma Technology Group secures its continuous high-quality delivery, meeting clients’ needs.

Sigma Technology Group is a leading global technology consulting company providing comprehensive IT consulting and managed services. With the organization’s philosophy “Local Drive – Global Strength,” Sigma Technology offers flexible delivery models suiting customer needs. The organization provides comprehensive IT consultancy services with both onsite delivery in Sweden, Norway, and Germany and remote delivery from Ukraine, Hungary, Poland, and China. Expanding to Kosovo is the company’s next step to offer clients even higher flexibility in meeting their development needs.

Kosovo has high potential to become a digital transformation leader. Growing ICT ecosystem, high IT and English language literacy among population, and possibility of EU accession, make Pristina an obvious choice for Sigma Technology’s future expansion.

Niklas Malmros, CEO of Sigma Technology Solutions Group Business Area, says: “Kosovo has one of the youngest populations in Europe with advanced know-how in ICT. We were impressed by how connected and developed the IT community in Kosovo is. We believe it will be a great match and addition to our flexible delivery model, where we can now offer our customers dedicated teams from Kosovo together with our previous delivery model from Scandinavia, Germany, Ukraine, and Hungary.”

He adds: “The cornerstone of our business strategy is building long-term relationships to build sustainable impact and drive innovation. We have been following Sigma’s Ukrainian operations at Sigma Software since 2006 starting with the team of 60 experts. Today, Sigma Software unites over 2,000 experts and is one of the best employers in the country. We see great potential in our collaboration and would like to be Kosovo’s top 3 best employer in the coming three years. Together with the dedicated management team from Appbites, I am confident that this is possible.”

Appbites offers an extensive range of services including customized web and mobile applications (Android, iOS) development, e-commerce, maintenance, and hosting solutions from the heart of Kosovo, Pristina. Appbites serves companies in e-commerce, retail, healthcare, finance, and justice industries.

Arianit Pajaziti, CEO of Appbites, on the acquisition: “We’ve been offering custom software services for more than 8 years now as Appbites, to our clients in USA, UK, and throughout Europe. To leverage the strong expertise of engineers in Kosovo and strengthen our market position, a merger with Sigma Technology Solutions Group came as a natural step ahead. Moving forward, Appbites will complement Sigma Technology in achieving even greater success.”

“The merger with Sigma Technology is going to help us grow immensely, both in staff as well as in technological excellence and knowledge. It’s an exciting opportunity for us to tap into the collective wisdom of our new partners, allowing us to learn and innovate at an accelerated pace. Our team of skilled engineers brings a wealth of expertise to the table, making us a perfect complement to Sigma Technology. Together, we can offer a comprehensive suite of solutions that blend our strengths seamlessly, providing cutting-edge value and innovation,” says Rinor Bytyci, CTO of Appbites.
