Think of the phrase “Texas technology,” and what immediately comes to mind?

If it’s the city of Austin, you may want to think again. Because, longstanding stereotypes to the contrary, it’s actually Dallas-Fort Worth that dominates the technology industry in the Lone Star State by far. That’s why D CEO has put together this special report on the many, sometimes surprising, faces of technology in North Texas.

Moving beyond its “legacy” sectors—telecom, semiconductors, aerospace, and outsourcing—the region’s technology industry has diversified dramatically in recent years, with dynamic and pioneering moves into the realms of nanotechnology, security, gaming, and biomedicine, to name just a few. In this special report you’ll meet the innovators who are leading this impressive charge, making DFW technology in 2011 a strong and vibrant force for growth.
