Latin America Outlook of the Information Technology Services Market, 2018

Latin America Outlook of the Information Technology Services Market, 2018

The Latin American Information Technology (IT) industry is growing rapidly. Companies of different sizes and across a variety of verticals are increasingly understanding the benefits of IT and increasing their technology budgets to support business operations. Technologies are being leveraged to support companies' digital transformation processes. Big Data and Analytics (BDA) emerged as a technology that is being discussed inside and outside IT departments.

Companies across several industry verticals have realized that they need to harness the power of data coming from a variety of sources to survive. Public cloud has revolutionized the medium, as companies invest in technology; the focus of investments is no longer on technology spending as on how the digital transformation accelerators can be used in business. Technologies with BDA are beginning to have an expressive demand, because they provide a solid base of data that guides the transformation. Line of Business (LOB) areas have strategic decision-making power and a budget for investments in business solutions.
