GX2, the only company on this committee in the IT segment, had an excellent response. “We realized that we are very technically prepared to meet the demands of the foreign market, we often do not value what we have. I could see that the solutions that are built in the foreign market are in many cases technically inferior to what we deliver to our customers in Brazil, both in terms of software and processes ”, says Luiz Garcia.

 

 

Visit to NETPark, a scientific park that houses high-tech companies specialized in nanotechnology, X-rays, forensic technology and semiconductors.

 

Visits were made to technology hubs, such as NETPark and Proto, the latter located in the city of Newcastle, where you can try out augmented reality, virtual reality solutions and understand how avatars are created for use in the entertainment market (games, movies, holograms, etc.). There were also visits to Tesco’s distribution center (one of the most modern in the world) and to Nissan, with a car assembly plant based on industry 4.0, with 90% of the activities carried out by robots.

It was an intense week, with many exchanges of experiences and networking. We have opportunities ahead of us and the certainty that we are prepared to operate inside and outside Brazil, as we have technical know-how and a work methodology that allows us to operate in various markets. We also know that these actions must be ordered and planned so that we can achieve our goal, that is, planning is fundamental! We go ahead exploring markets and showing the world our DNA with the goal of always: not just being an IT supplier, but a Strategic Partner.
