Blue-chip and government clients that want to reduce the risks involved in software integration projects are increasingly turning to Amsphere to test their applications. These customers include companies such as Marks & Spencer, Cadbury and BT. Amsphere claims that its success comes from improving governance and reducing the risks, timescales and costs of IT projects. The London company was founded in 2002 when chief executive Ricky Shankar led a buyout using his own money to fund the deal. Amsphere’s sales have risen 55% a year from £2.4m in 2004 to £8.8m in 2007.
