2015 marks the Alliance Software Incorporated's 9th attendance to the Software Development Expo and Conference (SODEC) held in Tokyo Big Sight, Japan last May 13.

SODEC, a three-day expo, is one of the most important trade exhibitions among software engineers as it serves as an avenue for participating companies to present comprehensive information on latest products for software, development and maintenance.

ASI along with the Philippine Software Industry Association (PSIA) and nine other company delegations from the country joined this year's trade mission to Tokyo, showcasing Philippine-based, globally competitive software companies and IT outsourcing (ITO) service providers.

Robert Cheng, CEO and representative of Alliance Software Inc., emphasized the need for Filipino IT companies to take part in events like SODEC to get exposed to Japan's leading IT market to develop major clients.

"It's a big opportunity for Japanese and Filipino IT companies to partner and promote mutual beneficial partnership," he said.

By partnering with Japan, Philippines can make a name as being the "right choice" for global business as an emerging market. It can further position itself as one of the mature and preferred destinations for Information Technology Outsourcing.
