New York, NY (Top40 Charts / CI&T) CI&T, the global digital technology agency for the world's biggest companies, is samba-ing its way to Austin with its newly announced Agile Carnival program day taking place at South by Southwest (SXSW) Interactive on Tuesday, March 14 at the Courtyard Marriott in downtown Austin. CI&T is combining the two best parts of SXSW - the panels and the parties - to create Agile Carnival, a Brazilian Carnival-themed interactive lounge coupled with a series of talks on lean digital cultures, agile design sprints, and machine learning for exceptional customer experiences.

CI&T has organized a top-notch agenda featuring the brightest minds in innovation, marketing and design with the aim of exploring how to meaningfully integrate today's cutting-edge digital technology into tomorrow's businesses. The six panel discussions will include representatives from: Coca-Cola, Digiday, Doberman, Fandango, Forrester Research, Google, HomeAway, Hulu, Nationwide, The Lean Enterprise Institute and TechCrunch, among others.

"We are very excited to provide a forum for these forward-thinking conversations about how companies can really transform themselves to compete in a digital world. We will share some very practical learnings on how to quickly leverage next-generation technologies and implement processes that people can use immediately to start transforming their organizations and get their boldest ideas to market faster," said Bruno Guicardi, president, CI&T. "Listening to these stellar panelists and kicking back in our Agile Carnival demo lounge are great ways to embrace what we Brazilians are best at...innovation and celebration!"

To accompany its day of programming, CI&T's Agile Carnival will also feature a Brazilian Carnival-themed interactive lounge and demo lab featuring client work where SXSW attendees can meet up, connect and recharge with everything Brazilian from fresh fruit açaí bowls and Brazilian espresso to Samba music and refreshing Caipirinhas.

Agile Carnival is taking place Tuesday, March 14 from 9:00am to 7:30pm CST at the Courtyard Marriott Austin Downtown. This is an official SXSW event open to all badge holders.
