The move is part of the firm's strategic growth plan to expand its global footprint into regions beyond existing operations in North America, Europe, India, China and Australia.

"We first arrived in Brazil in December of 2009 and have grown our team to more than 85 'ThoughtWorkers' within our first 14 months," said Amit Kaul, general manager for ThoughtWorks Brazil. "We fully expect to continue growing at the same pace for 2011."

The event, to be joint sponsored with Juniper Networks and Cariden Technologies, will take place March 21 at the Renaissance São Paulo Hotel in Brazil prior to the start of the Capacity Latam 2011 conference.


Chilean firm Intelligenxia has launched a new software solution for the retail market, called OptimEyes, which was developed locally under a program sponsored by state development agency Corfo, Intelligenxia announced in a release.

The solution employs input from hardware such as cameras, movement sensors, and POS and RFID systems to feed in to a BI platform, which in turn helps retailers to plan the distribution and location of products within the store while also planning commercial campaigns.

The system developers expect to position OptimEyes for the next two years within Chile, and then to go abroad with the solution, which offers applications such as online reports, sales flow, waiting time, video recording, real-time alerts and notifications, and evaluation of the sales process.
