More than 500 visitors from 21 economies participated in the Asian-Oceanian Computing Industry Organization Summit (ASOCIO) in Taipei to facilitate greater cooperation in the sector, the Information Service Industry Association of the ROC (中華民國資訊軟體協會) said yesterday.
This is the first time in the past 16 years that the summit has been held in Taipei, the association said.
Wistron Information Technology & Services Corp (緯創軟體), MiTAC Inc (神通電腦) and Systex Corp (精誠資訊) are among the 15 local participants showcasing their latest services and solutions during the two-day summit at the Taipei International Conventional Center, according to the association.
Yesterday, local information service company Syscom Group (凌群電腦) inked a letter of intent with its Malaysian peer 1001tech Group to join forces in developing -information service businesses.
The summit highlighted that global information service providers are able to provide multiple services to sectors other than the technology sector, the association said in a statement released yesterday after wrapping up the two-day meeting.
Some companies have expanded to provide supply chain management services to steel mills, real-time information for the transportation sector and global software leasing services, it said.
