Stefanini participates in CeBIT 2012, the world's most important event in the digital and technology industry
Stefanini, one of the most important global providers of technology solutions, will be one of the Brazilian companies participating in CeBIT 2012 (www.cebit.com), the world's most important event in digital economy. The event will take place from the 6th to the 10th of March in Hannover, Germany and its main purpose is to optimise new business opportunities. Stefanini is one of the Brazilian companies invited by Softex (Brazilian Society for the Promotion of Excellence in Software) to take part in the group representing Brazilian national technology.
Stefanini´s participation in CeBIT is also intended to strengthen the brand's presence on the European continent. Marco Stefanini, Stefanini´s founder and president, states: "we believe that CeBIT will be an opportunity to present Brazilian companies´ expertise in technology and the advantages Stefanini offers such as multi-language services, tailored to local culture and tuned to customer needs”.
The company operates in 12 European countries, offering support in nine languages. In Germany, Stefanini has a branch in the city of Cologne; the country has been singled out as a strategic European market and an investment target given that the company has a database of German clients with growth projects in the region. According to Stefanini, "the Company's strategy is based on a global offer and consists in implementing a variety of near shore or offshore services. Since most German companies work on a global scale, our offer matches their needs”.
For the thirteenth consecutive year, SOFTEX (www.softex.br) will be responsible for organising the Brazilian national participation in the event. With the partner country status and seeking to be internationally projected as a producer of advanced technologies, Brazil will take part in CeBIT. The country will occupy six booths distributed throughout the event's different thematic pavilions. Here private and public companies, and governmental institutions will demonstrate their solutions and services, and display renowned technological success cases.
The Brazilian president Dilma Roussef has confirmed her presence at the opening ceremony scheduled for the 6 March and will visit the national pavilion. She declared: "I believe this is the result of the current Government's focus in elevating the ‘Brazil brand’ in technology as well. Therefore, CeBIT is a fantastic opportunity for the sector to take a leap forward in the next three years”.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs will be presenting the BrasilGlobalNet solution created by Stefanini at CeBIT. According to Marco Stefanini, "it is one of the biggest and most complete information and investment portals in the country and an initiative that proves technology can support the Government and become an important tool of transparency and communication with citizens”.
Brazil's participation in CeBIT 2012 also includes a wide parallel programme, consisting in social events to expand the network of business relationships, meetings with international media and a technical-business seminar between SOFTEX, Brasscom and Bitkom, the German association of IT companies.
