May 9 (Reuters) - EPAM Systems forecast full-year profit and revenue below analysts' expectations on Thursday, hurt by weaker demand for its software services, sending shares of the company down about 9% in premarket trading.

Sticky inflation and higher interest rates have slowed enterprises' digitization efforts and cloud adoption, affecting IT-service providers across the globe.

Peer Infosys in April forecast annual profit below estimates, citing global macroeconomic uncertainty that is pressuring client spending.

EPAM's second-quarter profit and revenue estimates also came in below analysts' expectations.

The company expects full-year profit of $10.00 to $10.30 per share and revenue in the range of $4.58 billion to $4.68 billion, compared with analysts' estimate of $10.18 in profit and $4.81 billion in revenue.

Its first-quarter revenue and adjusted profit beat analysts' estimates by a short margin.
