Digital Converge in Texas Technology Corridor

The Texas Technology Corridor boasts the human, intellectual, academic, financial and technological resources to be a global competitor in the area of digital convergence technologies and services.

But the 1,500 technology companies in Central Texas "risk being left behind and locked out of the future by competitors already learning to work regionally, not locally, across multiple disciplines," growing beyond the boundaries between what once were separate industries, according to a new report that spotlights the organizations, tools and approaches needed to turn the assets of the Texas Technology Corridor into a powerful economic engine.

The report is sponsored by the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce, Salsa.net, and the IC2 Institute. An array of business, political, academic and other organizations participated in the creation of the report, including, among others: the Office of the Governor, the Office of U.S. Representative Lamar Smith, Baylor University, the Austin Technology Incubator, the University of Texas, World Congress on Information Technology 2006, Eastman Kodak, IBM, Cingular Wireless, Perceptive Sciences, RadioShack, Vinson & Elkins, Armida Technologies, City of Austin, Telcordia Technologies, and Technology Futures Inc.

The study identifies eight regions competing with Central Texas to exploit digital convergence: the metro areas of New York and Washington, D.C; Central Florida; Silicon Valley, including San Francisco; Los Angeles, San Diego, South Korea and Finland. Other regions rising to compete include Phoenix-Tucson-Tempe, Arizona; Colorado Springs-Denver, Colorado; Las Vegas; and Sweden, Denmark, Germany, the United Kingdom, Israel, Japan, Malaysia, China, Singapore and Taiwan.
