Companies across the globe are utilizing cloud-based solutions for more productive processes and improved business results. This trend is also evident in the Latin American region where tech companies have now increased the adoption of cloud solutions, which has resulted in reduction of IT costs.

The region has also witnessed greater revolution in technology. Achieving centralized management, improved user experience, and remote workforce is no small task, and technologies such as virtualization and Green IT have delivered sound results in Latin America. To this end, these two technologies are attracting more investments in data centers. Furthermore, the recent rise of content and video on demand has shown the value of big data analytics in business and IT in the region. Big data’s increased adoption in companies and government agencies indicates its significance. With Latin American government agencies, oil and gas companies, and other large businesses utilizing it in video surveillance solutions, the investment opportunities for big data in Latin America are at an all-time high.

What is more, in Brazil, enterprise mobility applications have been at the forefront of telecom investments for some time now. This application market is excited to receive massive boost in investments in Latin America with the implementation of applications to improve collaboration and productivity.

Also, with more cloud-based solutions being implemented in Latin America, it is equally necessary to have robust security solutions in place. Hence, end-point security is growing with more investments from security companies. Also, the gig economy has several pain points for large industries which are now being addressed by startups. The services of these startups include providing insurance, benefits and fraud prevention resulting in millions of clients.
