New York Summit Sells Brazil as Alternative IT Outsourcing to India

Brazilian IT A line up of speakers with leading roles in government, industry, media and research will gather in New York City, on November 10, for the U.S.-Brazil IT BPO (Business Process Outsourcing) Summit, which will explore how Brazil is becoming an increasingly popular partner for U.S. investors and companies looking to expand overseas.

The Brazilian IT market, according to some experts, has become one of the strongest and most mature in the world, having evolved in size, coverage and complexity over the past four decades.

Keynote speakers include Douglas Smith, chief economist, Americas for Standard Chartered Bank; John D. Landers, president and chairman of the board of the Brazilian-American Chamber of Commerce; Antonio Gil, president of the Brazilian Association of Information Technology and Communication Companies (Brasscom); and Andre Limp, technology analyst for The Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil).

In addition, executives representing U.S. and Brazilian companies, including Dell, Motorola/C.E.S.A.R.; and Johnson and Johnson, will share insights into how they are leveraging Brazil's IT strengths to grow their businesses.

Supported by Apex-Brasil, the summit is organized by Brasscom in association with the Brazilian-American Chamber of Commerce of NY.

Participants will include CEOs, CIOs, investors from multinational firms and investment funds, market analysts, specialized consultants and representatives from universities and research and development centers.

Brasscom President  Gil, will provide an in-depth look at the factors behind the  growth of the IT sector in Brazil and the advantages Brazil offers U.S. companies as an outsourcing destination and IT growth center.

Compared to other common IT-BPO locations, such as India and China, Brazil offers distinct advantages, including advanced infrastructure, market maturity, political stability and highly qualified professionals.

Spencer Ante, Associate Editor from Business Week; John McCarthy, VP and Principal Analyst from Forrester Research and David Tapper, VP Outsourcing and Offshore Services from IDC will join representatives of global IT service providers ThinkBRQ, GFT Group, TIVIT and Stefanini in a panel discussion on current opportunities and challenges in nearshore outsourcing.

    You want to see more ?
    there are many many hundreds videos available at Youtube…on the subjects of Brazil Superior Infrastructuresssssssssssssssss !

    Ohhhhhh and as per
    it says THIS
    “Brazil’s inter-city roads are widely recognized as among the most dangerous in the world. As is the case elsewhere in the region, poor driving skills, bad roads and a high density of trucks combine to make travel considerably more hazardous than in the United States. There are no laws requiring truckers to take mandatory rest stops and they often drive for excessive periods of time. All major inter-city routes are saturated with heavy truck traffic and for the most part have only two lanes. Road maintenance is inadequate and some long-distance roads through the Amazon forest are impassable much of the year. There are few railroads and passenger train travel is almost nonexistent”

    Sorry Leo Bra-zero I am not the one who wrote this comment.
    Thus dont accuse me of being a Brazilian hater or ranter !!!!!
    Nor was I the one filming the above videos.

    And videos are even better than numbers. Even idiots like you Leo may, eventually, understand……. with their eyes !
    As stated, there are many many hundreds more videos for your viewing.
    Copacabana and Ipanema are fine. And What’s behind this surface of wealth ?
    ITS ALL DIRTY, SMELLY, GREASY AND STINKY wherevever you look or smell at.

    Whoaaaa what a developed country Brazil is !

    Impressive…isnt it ?
