Technology Ireland is the largest and most influential business organisation representing Ireland’s tech sector. With origins dating back to 1968, the association was formed in 2017 by the merger of ICT Ireland and the Irish Software Association. Their membership is made up of the leading Irish-owned and FDI players in the Irish technology sector. Their network is structured around a series of core working groups, member forums and networking events, all of which are the primary enablers of our strategy. By forging close working relationships with government departments, state agencies and governing bodies, Technology Ireland ensures the united voice of the Irish technology sector is clearly communicated to the relevant stakeholders and policymakers.
It has been a busy year here at Corrata – honing our services, building our team and executing against our plan which most recently resulted in service availability throughout the United States through newly signed strategic partnering deals – so it is with great pride that we find ourselves achieving further industry recognition and look forward to the exciting times ahead!
