Brazil Cloud Computing Market Introduction
Brazil is considered to be the one of the leading countries in the world in terms of IT spending and constitutes near to half of overall Latin America’s IT spending. Also, based on investment on information technology, innovation index, digitization, and online services Brazil ranks 7th within Latin America. Over the last few years, the cloud computing has evolved as mainstream technology that can offer practical solution for complex IT infrastructure applications. Also, enterprises in Brazil need a scalable architecture to enhance on-demand capacity and manage increasing amounts of data in today’s connected world. Cloud computing enable organizations to augment data center capacity, enhance scalability, and take advantages of value-added services.
Despite being numerous benefits offered by cloud computing technology still CIOs are facing major challenges while moving to cloud model. Data security and inefficient connectivity infrastructure are major challenges that are limiting the adoption of cloud services, hence, less than 10% of organizations in Brazil have entirely cloud-based business model. This is expected to hamper growth of the cloud computing services market in Brazil to certain extent. Other organizations that avail or deploy cloud services and solutions have partially migrated towards cloud with majority of the infrastructure and application related services are cloud-based. In total around 80% of enterprises across industry verticals use cloud computing services. However, introduction of favourable government initiative to support building and operating data centers in the country is anticipated to boost growth of the Brazil cloud computing services market in the near future.
