Egypt Partakes in 26th Annual SSOW

Egypt, represented by the Information Technology Industry Development Agency (ITIDA), is participating as a sponsor in the 26th Annual Shared Services and Outsourcing Week (SSOW), organized by Shared Service and Outsourcing Network (SSON), on March 21-24, in Florida, US.

SSOW is the largest event in the world for shared services, global business services, outsourcing and intelligent automation leaders to come together as a community. SSOW brings together well-established shared services organizations, those in the midst of development, and those just starting out on their journey.

With the theme: “Turning Information into Action,” this year’s agenda follows a journey through four key themes: scope expansion, continuous improvement, change management, and leveraging data analytics and advanced technology and tools to improve processes and drive enterprise-wide transformation.

SSOW speaker lineup features experts, prominent figures and leaders in the shared service and outsourcing industry. The event includes in-depth discussions, workshops, fireside chats and Startup Zone.

It is worth mentioning that Egypt has been named a Primary Location in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) for global exports of IT and business services by Gartner, IDC, and other leading consultancies. The country continues to attract investments of Fortune 500 companies like Amazon, Uber, Dell and IBM. The Egyptian IT and business services exports have for several consecutive years been growing at a double-digit rate fueled by a multi-lingual talent pool of 600K+ annual graduates, the largest in the Arab speaking world and second largest in EMEA.

Egypt is leading the technology innovation scene in MENA, securing the largest number of investment deals in startups in the region and attracting business leaders on the hunt for innovations, tech-powered solutions, and large multilingual talent pool at competitive cost and global presence.

ITIDA is the executive arm of the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT). Since its establishment in 2004, ITIDA has been spearheading the development of Egypt’s IT and business services industry to increase its global competitiveness.
