MEDZ : Meeting with French IT servicing companies in Paris
On Thursday 26 June 2014 in Paris, MEDZ partnered with the international firm IDC France to organize a conference/debate on the theme “Nearshoring in Morocco - a lever for growth for IT companies”.
This high level meeting is the first in a cycle of meetings for ITO (Information Technology Outsourcing) professionals that MEDZ intends to develop using a pre-qualified target. The principle of these ’one-to-few’ gatherings is to bring together 20-30 decision-makers who are already interested in destination Morocco, with the aim of showing them, in particular:
- All the advantages they can obtain.
- Key factors for success, personal accounts and first-hand experience of similar successful enterprises already operating in MEDZ business parks.
This first meeting was a great success, with the participation of about 30 CEOs, IS managers and outsourcing managers from among the top 100 of France’s IT servicing companies.
The session was opened by Mr. Abderrafie HANOUF, CEO of MedZ Sourcing and board member of MEDZ, who explained the current situation in Morocco and its aims for2020. He then appealed for a Franco-Moroccan alliance which would promise great results and bring shared opportunities and growth.
Mr. Sébastien LAMOUR, Senior Consultant at IDC France, for his part, explained the market situation for ITO in France, the interest in outsourcing for encouraging growth, as well as future trends.
During the discussion session, co-hosted by Samir GUERRAOUI, Offshoring Sales Manager of MEDZ, and Olivier Coredo, Conference Manager at IDC France, experts in this field were able to analyse what Morocco had to offer and its competitive advantages.
Two major names in industry, CGI (800 employees at 2 sites: Casanearshore and Technopolis) and HPCDG (1.200 employees at Technopolis),were also able to share their experience in Morocco with the participants, especially the quality of the human resources, level of delivery, customer satisfaction and servicing stability.
