Why Latin America and the Caribbean for outsourcing software development? According to Steve Mezak, the founder and CEO of Accelerance, “Many U.S.-based CTOs and technology leaders are turning to these regions for software outsourcing for a variety of benefits, including: access to world-class talent, their close proximity to North American clients, robust IT programs that yield skilled programmers, the nearness of time zones that allow for highly-collaborative software-development, excellent English-language skills and cultural similarities, and cost benefits of the regions, which compete favorably with other countries.”

Accelerance, which routinely connects enterprises with the best software development firms in Latin America and beyond, will speak with Nexus 2017 attendees on why companies outsource software development, the benefits, and how Accelerance helps enterprises simplify the process of selecting world-class, pre-vetted software outsourcing providers.

Mezak will also moderate a panel session called “Lessons from the Frontline,” a roundup of lessons learned from cross-border partnerships. Panelists include: Hui Wu-Curtis, senior director of customer care strategy within Shared Services for Choice Hotels; Karl Rottmann, senior director of IT at Cylance; Owen Tran, chief technology officer, Points International; Zhiyin Pan, vice president of engineering at Chartio; and Roberto Martinez, CEO of Nearsoft. During the session, attendees will hear from leaders who have spearheaded outsourcing initiatives, their challenges and their victories. The session takes place on May 24 at 1 p.m. PDT.

Kirk Laughlin, managing director of Nearshore Americas, the organizer of Nexus 2017, notes, “The nearshore services industry continues to mature by scaling to meet new client demands, tapping new labor pools and applying new tools to fill requirements. Without question, the nearshore landscape is changing – and these changes are producing many new insights and lessons for both providers and customers. At Nexus 2017, and in the Accelerance session with Steve Mezak, find out what those lessons are and how the nearshore stacks up against outsourcing delivery ecosystems around the world.”
