The Philippines’ software sector is represented by the Philippine Software Industry Association (PSIA) whose leaders are in Tokyo, Japan, to showcase Filipinos’ capabilities in software development and link partnerships with Japanese companies.

The PSIA takes part in the Software Development Expo (SODEC) from May 9-11 at the Tokyo International Convention Center.

PSIA and four Philippine companies comprise this year’s delegation to Tokyo, namely Advanced World Systems, Alliance Software, Pointwest Technologies, and Tsukiden Global Solutions.

Other partners include BlastAsia, Imperium Technology, J-Sys Philippines, TopConnection.Asia, and the Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT).

The Philippines has progressed in high-value software development and IT-related services to a wide number of Japan-based companies.

Over the years, the country has garnered the reputation as a viable outsourcing hub for all types of software development among companies in Japan, hence more efforts is being put in place to promote the Philippines as a “Software Development and IT Outsourcing Global Gateway.”

A Filipino IT professional has great talent and skill, creativity, dedication, and work ethic especially manifested at the aftermath of the March 2011 earthquake.

The Philippines, as a software and ITO hub for Japanese requirements, can serve potential Japanese clients and build other forms of economic partnerships between the two countries.

At the SODEC, PSIA President Nora K. Terrado will present the latest trends in the Philippine software development and services industry, the industry’s growth figures and the country’s capabilities as a mature and ideal partner to Japan.

The presentation will also feature a testimonial from former president of Fujitsu Ten Solutions Philippines Akira Ikezoe on his company’s prosperous experience, working with Philippine software companies and IT professionals.

PSIA’s participation is made possible with the support of the ASEAN-Japan Centre, the Philippine Trade and Investment Center (PTIC) in Japan, and the DOST-ICTO.

PSIA’s Japan Mission aims to raise awareness about software and ITO capabilities of the Philippines as well as services and products of PSIA member companies.
