Globalization has provided organizations with an opportunity to both contain costs as well as pursue new markets. For years now, outsourcing specific functions to workers outside of the US has allowed organizations to reduce operational costs and increase profits. Advanced global networks have made it possible for these organizations to expand virtually anywhere in the world. And as the emerging countries develop economically, those countries become new market opportunities for IT and telecommunications suppliers. The world is smaller, but the opportunities are growing. In this conference, we will examine the dynamics of this shrinking globe, and take an in-depth look at the many opportunities in this globally-connected world.

IDC's annual Directions conference is recognized as the industry's premier event that delivers an informative and actionable perspective of the issues shaping the technology industry, and the resulting impact on the businesses of IT providers and users.
