Kathmandu, January 6, 2017: Federation of Computer Association Nepal is organizing the CAN Softech Summit 2017 at Hotel Annapurna today.
CAN Softech is an annual exhibition that showcases products and services of different domestic software solution companies. This initiative has been taken by the CAN Federation to promote Nepali software brands and companies among key ICT stakeholders globally.
Until last year, CAN Federation was organizing this software exhibition for three days every year. However, this year CAN SofTech will be a single-day event. About a dozen domestic software solution providers and companies are participating in the event.
Companies participating in the event provide services on information management, account management, banking, printing solution, security solution, wireless solution and computer security, among others. Similarly, business process outsourcing firms, internet service providers, and software developers are also participating in the event.
â€œDevelopment potential of the software industry in a country like Nepal is more compared to hardware industry. But we are much behind in software industry. We are organising CAN SofTech every year basically to promote Nepali software industry,â€ shared Dhakal, President of Federation of Computer Association Nepal.
According to organizers, CAN SofTech will also have a discussion session with stakeholders of the software industry on the prospects and challenges of software development in Nepal.
