MaPIT features a Guest Lecture at Science Thursday, Thu 27.11.2008 at 10-12am in TKK Computer Science building, Lecture hall T2, about software industries in China and India.
The last decade has witnessed the emergence of China and India as the two most significant economies in the global competitive landscape. The prominence of China and India is due not only to rapidly growing local markets but also a phenomenally increasing concentration of economic and innovative activities that is taking place in these two countries.
Particularly in the context of the global software industry India has acquired the repute of a leading "software nation", whereas China is fast gaining ground and emerging as a serious player. Interestingly, however, the evolution and growth trajectory of the Chinese software industry differs considerably from that of the Indian software industry. For practitioners involved in international business and R&D, international project management, global software business, or distributed software development, as well as students and academics from these fields, the lecture provides a cutting-edge analysis of the conditions for global collaboration with China and India.
The lecture is free of charge. Welcome!
