Evangelists of software engineering

Whoever who had the chance to take a look into the NPS reference list, could have noted two well-known companies – Delta Sport and Pexim. The following text doesn’t tell about the projects done by NPS in these companies; it doesn’t tell about the similiarities and differences between NAX and AX, two Microsoft Dynamics business solutions implemented in these houses; it doesn’t tell about the problems that are a part of complex projects, nor about the successes... The topic of this text is the story about two young and successfull men, about their hopes and those of our own, but also about the faith in success being possible without leaving the country. They live in same city, they work in different companies, and they have the same last name. They are Jovičić brothers.
