If you have been following the news recently, for the first time the Ministry of Information and Communication Technology is organizing the ICT-BPO Conference and Networking Forum. The attendees are very high level professionals in the IT Industry coming from diverse background: Private Companies as well as Government bodies. The aims of the conference are to:

  • Learn about the capability and track record of Mauritius as an established ICT-BPO location
  • Assess how Mauritius can fit in the global delivery model
  • Hear industry best practices and lessons learned from leading practitioners
  • Assess the Mauritian potential for investment in the ICT-BPO sector
  • Visit leading shared services and business service centres

I am pleasantly impressed by the High Quality content on the first day of the conference (http://www.gov.mu/portal/sites/ICTBPO/agenda.htm). Topics include:

  • Mauritius: Capitalizing on Opportunities in the New Global Landscape (Gartner Research)

I personally like such type of openings of conference as when you see the research findings, it is interesting to go through the other topics to be discussed during the forum. I was present at a previous conference starting like that: http://asheshr.com/2009/10/01/my-first-international-conference-participation/

There are very good topics for discussion.

I am impressed again by the very high profile of the speakers which include the CEO of Infosys, Accenture IT (J) etc.

Let’s hope for the expected outcome out of this conference/forum…
