Further, we are pleased to inform that ESC is planning to organise its repeat participation @ Japan IT WEEK 2014 - Japan’s largest IT Show scheduled to take place at Tokyo, Japan during 14-16 May, 2014.
Japan IT Week is the largest trade show where participants can find latest IT Technologies / Solutions. A great number of Information Systems Manager, Management Executives, Sales Managers, System Integrators and Managers from IT system division will visit the exhibition to conduct business with exhibitors. Japan IT Week is absolutely business point for both IT Solution Providers and IT System Managers.
As the Indian IT industry crosses $100 billion in revenues and aims for the next $100 billion, it cannot afford to ignore Japan, the world's largest IT market after the US. Most large Indian IT providers have been present in Japan for close to 20 years but success has been slow in coming. Of the $125-billion Japanese IT services market, Indian service providers get only $500 million. Embedded services, which is part of the manufacturing cost, contributes another $500 million, according to technology researcher Gartner. In all, Japan contributes less than 2% of India's software exports.
As of 2013, the Japanese IT industry is estimated to be in excess of $120 billion. Out of this chunk, Indian IT service providers get only about $500 million, which is very miniscule. Indian IT companies have established a presence in Japan for the past 20 odd years or so. However, Japan contributes to a little more than 1% of India’s software exports.
Advantages for India
The current slump in the economy has forced Japan to adopt new models for delivering software. More and more Japanese companies are opening to the idea of using readymade software packages rather than custom built solutions. Secondly, Indian cultural values are more close to the Japanese than the West, and can work as an advantage for India.
Japan IT Week is concurrently held with the following specialized Shows :
● Software Development Expo
● Data Warehouse & CRM Expo
● Embedded Systems Expo
● Data Storage Expo
● Information Security Expo
● Web & Mobile Marketing Expo
● Data Center Expo
● Cloud Computing Expo Japan
● Smartphone & Mobile Expo
● Wireless M2M EXPO
● Direct Commerce Solutions Expo Spring
