IT Infrastructure Outsourcing Services Market: Colombia, Mexico, And Venezuela

NEW YORK, April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

IT Infrastructure Outsourcing Services Market: Colombia, Mexico, and Venezuela .html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=Business_Outsourcing

The IT infrastructure outsourcing services market is becoming more mature in Latin America as some cultural restraints related to security and infrastructure issues are been addressed. Disaster recovery and storage are the faster growing markets, while co-location and dedicated hosting are more mature in terms of adoptions and for that reason have lower growth rates. New market opportunities and trends with cloud computing and new business models are stimulating the IT infrastructure outsourcing services market and several mergers and acquisitions have been witnessed in the region. The main market competitors in the region are IBM, HP, Unisys, Daycohost, Global Crossing, and Kio.

Market Overview

Colombia is undergoing a good economic period despite the global crisis the world is facing, allowing many companies to make long-term investments within the IT area. Colombia is one of the leading countries in Latin America in offshore services (remote services). The market grew xpercent in the last year, and furthermore, Colombia is one of the top Latin American countries in IT sales.

Currently, Colombia has a robust data center and telecommunications infrastructure with sufficient resources to continue offering IT infrastructure outsourcing services in the long term. These services have become highly dynamic in the IT market; prices are tending to decline given the competitiveness and the growing interest of companies to hire these kind of services, and the increasing consciousness about the cost/benefit that this type of services entails.

Colombia has become an attractive destination for those entrepreneurs wishing to invest and settle in the country. One reason for this phenomenon is that Colombia has the second highest rate of available workers in the IT market throughout Latin America, second only to Mexico and followed by Argentina. Moreover, Colombia enjoys a strategic location within Latin America.

The modular datacenter has become an important trend in Colombia, mostly due to the investment issue.

Datacenter companies designed under the concept of green technology can achieve significant energy savings in consumption of the various subsystems, especially on the cooling. The trend is to be able to store more information in less space and by the way save energy optimizing space. This trend is becoming more common to Colombian companies, even though it's not a requirement or a common practice, datacenter managers have started to understand this concept and its benefits and have started considering the adoption of new practices.
