The 2019 ISG Provider Lens Public Cloud – Solutions & Service Partners Report for Brazil sees rapid growth in the country’s public cloud market, with a corresponding increase in the number of competing service providers.
“Workloads are increasingly migrating from the traditional managed services outsourcing model to the cloud,” said Jan Erik Aase, ISG Provider Lens Research. “The cloud market in Brazil is flourishing and has reached a point of no return to the data center era.”
The report finds mid-sized companies especially interested in moving most or all of their IT functions to the cloud. Mid-sized companies in Brazil are embracing the public cloud because they have smaller legacy systems than large enterprises, have less need for customization, and can more easily replace their software with standard as-a-service offerings.
In the Brazil mid-market, there is also a great push for moving enterprise resource planning (ERP) to the cloud, the report says.
Brazil embraces multi-cloud
Many Brazilian enterprises are adopting multiple clouds, with a growing number of service choices available, the report adds. Many companies are looking at specialized cloud services, with individual clouds being used for scaling client-facing systems, big data analytics, machine learning and other functions. Automation to orchestrate distributed cloud architectures is in high demand.
