NEM Assembly

DAS Solutions is Attending the NEM Assembly

The NEM Assembly is taking place at the Crowne Plaza in Brussels today. The aim of the event is to share the updates and get feedback from the participants of the General Assembly on ongoing projects such as I2C PPP.

The goal of the I2C PPP project is to strengthen European leadership in various areas, for example, education, e-health, intelligent transport, entertainment and media. Open APIs will allow anyone to create complex applications and services including augmented reality and content analytics. This project will have a beneficial impact on:

Software development

New applications will be created that can be possibly used on new devices.

Business

I2C PPP will create new opportunities for converged business models between content and telecom, broadcast, consumer electronics, etc.

Society

The project fosters the effectiveness of communication that will contribute to intellectual and leisure well-being.

During the NEM Assembly, members will also discuss other new and exciting projects throughout the day. Multimedia writing robots, augmented reality, brain-computer interaction and the new generation of the UHD visualization are only some of the topics that will be addressed.

Tomorrow,  March 16 2016, the European Commission is organizing an information day for potential applicants to the call for proposals ICT19-2017. The call addresses “Media and content convergence” to support Media Industries under the Horizon 2020 initiative where DAS Solutions has been an active participant.

Media and content created in Europe are diverse and captivating, however to keep ahead of the competition on the global market, the industry has to become more technology oriented. The sector has to be more adaptable to new technologies and to be able to reach wider audiences.

Participating at various events such as the NEM Assembly and being active in such programs as Horizon 2020 is a part of DAS Solutions’ strategy to provide the most relevant services on the European market. We aim to provide high quality IT solutions for various industries, to support young programmers, and give back to the community in which we operate.

7 Reasons to Work with an IT Outsourcing Company

It is true that working with an IT outsourcing company can save you money, but this should not be the only reason for choosing to partner with a foreign firm. Choose an outsourcing company wisely and it will bring you a range of benefits.

1. Begin your project right away

An IT outsourcing company will have the resources and knowledge to start working on your project quickly. Working on a project in-house in case you do not have knowledge and expertise will take a lot of time and money, because you will need to put effort in training and hiring people and getting them into the swing of things.

2. Work with experts

Some firms look for IT outsourcing companies because they need experts in specific programming languages. For short-term projects it makes no sense to hire such a developer full time in-house. Outsourcing is beneficial for small companies that are willing to be competitive by using high-tech.

3. Increase efficiency

If you are a big company, your IT team needs to be focused on the tasks with the highest priority. At the same time, tasks that are long-term can be delegated to your outsourcing team.

4. Focus on what is important with an IT outsourcing company

DAS Solutions gives you the possibility to focus on the core of your business, i.e. sales, marketing or customer experience. By being focused you are able to expand your business faster and offer a high level of service at the same time.

5. Handle the lack of human resources

The amount of work there is can be much higher than the number of people available to perform the tasks. This is especially the case in the summer when employees want to take a vacation or during shortages of talent in the company for other reasons. Your IT outsourcing partner is going to be responsible for managing your remote team.

6. Get quality

A good team of software developers delivers reliable products. The outsourcing company’s reputation depends on the quality of their service, which is a significant incentive to be more productive than your in-house developers.

7. Predictable budget

When you work with an IT outsourcing company you know in advance the cost of the development services, which will be helpful in your budgeting process.

Regardless if you wish to work with an IT outsourcing company or develop a product in-house you need to:

a- Set clear goals, milestones and tasks;
b- Have a strategic vision for the project;
c- Provide all the information and support needed.
