Ismael Ghalimi is hosting a breakfast meeting on April 18 at the Hotel Sofitel. I’m going, the topic is interesting, Ismael has a lot of experience in the area, and quite honestly, very few people are publicly talking about how to actually implement “populist catch phrase business strategy” for this important area. People like to say the world is flat, but beyond the title of the book there isn’t much else said.
The theme for this meeting is The World is Flat, based on Thomas L. Friedmanâ€™s excellent book. We will discuss how Friedmanâ€™s ten flatteners can be put to use by software vendors today, using Intalio and a couple other start-ups as reference cases. This event is sponsored by Lohika â€” our offshore development partner â€” and will feature their CTO, Mark Phillips, who will share his experience working with small and large software companies that successfully offshored part of their software engineering process to Western Ukraine.
