SXSW Panel “Keep IT Services Rolling, say no to Isolationism” to Highlight Nearshoring Development

At iTexico, issues such as increasing global competition, growing shortage of IT talent, improving the cultural alignment of teams, and pressures on productivity and costs strike close to our hearts. We have been pioneers in nearshore IT development services that integrate agile work teams based in Austin, Silicon Valley and Guadalajara, Mexico, to deliver an innovative and collaborative services model for mobile, web and cloud solutions from funded start-up, to global enterprises.

Framed against the backdrop of competition in an ever-changing regional and global marketplace, we are proud to be participating in what we believe will be a spotlight panel discussion at the upcoming SXSW conference. The annual SXSW conference -- which allows attendees to explore what’s next in the worlds of entertainment, culture, and technology -- will take place March 10-19, 2017 in iTexico’s own backyard.

iTexico’s CEO, Anurag Kumar, will participate in a panel discussion entitled “Keep IT Services Rolling: Say No to Isolationism.” The session, scheduled from 5 to 6 p.m. on March 12, will explore how companies can compete in an ever-changing worldwide marketplace while working to maintain their own brand and cultural identity.

The panel discussion -- which will also feature Blanca Trevino, president and CEO of Mexico-based IT company Softtek; and Mauricio Antunez, president and co-founder of Austin-based IT company AXEN USA -- will look at how such global trends are changing the IT service model, and particularly, how competitive Mexican-based IT services are promoting a nearshoring model that support global IT initiatives.

Come and participate -- you will gain some insight and ideas into an exciting and challenging discussion for competing in the fast-changing global marketplace of digital transformation.
