IT PEERS on tour in Latin America
IT PEERS has recently been in Latin America, in Colombia and Mexico, where the company is in advanced stages of negotiation with important players of these geographies. It is expected that at the beginning of 2018 there will be news about new business partners in both countries.
"After months of negotiations, IT PEERS closes the year with an alliance for the Mexican market, with one of the" top five "consulting firms around the World. The bases of this memorandum of understanding include the telecommunications, transportation, retail, insurance and finance segments and include the guidelines for the execution of the joint project. The kick off will be already in January 2018 and until then we cannot advance the name of the company in question, but we are convinced that it will be very important in our strategy for next year, "says Jorge Santos Silva, Latin America Business Director . "Proof of the importance of this agreement was the presence of IT PEERS CEO, Jorge Duarte, who came to bring to this meeting not only a regional but a more global view, as it is intended in the short term," says Jorge-Alberto Yarte-Sada, International Senior Business Advisor from IT PEERS.
IT PEERS is currently negotiating with one of Mexico's largest technology companies for the exclusive representation of Datapeers for the financial and insurance industry. In 2018, approaches to the five largest Mexican banks are already planned. This alliance intends to be transversal to the Latin American market and a partnership is being negotiated in the same way for its subsidiary in São Paulo. "Datapeers has been particularly interested in the world technology market. Data privacy legislation has been the impetus to put Datapeers in the sights of the World Giants, and we are now organizing ourselves internally to meet this demand, "said Jorge Duarte, CEO of IT PEERS.
In the Colombian market, and together with Stefanini, IT PEERS made a tour of Bogotá, Cali and Medellín, where visited important companies in the banking, insurance and health sector. "We believe that the Colombian market can generate important business this year. It is certain that in 2018 Datapeers will be a key bet in this geography, since we have open several business for the product. Colombia is undoubtedly the market that most quickly generated a return in our internationalization process", says Jorge Santos Silva. Also in Colombia, there was a change in the legislation on safety and Disaster Recovery, which opens a great opportunity for the RAAS. "GTS is our exclusive partner of RAAS for Colombia and due to this new legislation we are convinced that the product will be very well received in 2018 in Latin American countries," adds Jorge Santos Silva.
With SEICO Technology, short- and medium-term plans have been defined, that will lead Multipeers to the aviation sector, where this partner produces and markets solutions that, associated with Multipeers, will bring significant gains and innovations to the industry.
Finally, in partnership with IoT Tech, some projects were set up in the area of Internet of Things in the agricultural, telematics, gas and energy sectors. Multipeers here will act as a "front end" in a project that is intended to grow and be a reference in several Latin American countries.
IT PEERS and GTS Colombia sign partnership for RAAS
Present in several geographies since 2011 with the products Multipeers and Datapeers, it is time for IT PEERS to advance to the internationalization of RAAS (Recovery as a Service). RAAS was developed jointly with IBM in 2012 and after several tests in the domestic market, IT PEERS feels that this is the right time to internationalize this product.
RAAS is a dedicated infrastructure with selective replication, with the possibility of almost instantaneous disaster activation on virtual servers in a remote environment. IT PEERS has been in the market for some time in search of a partner that would meet the necessary conditions to market RaaS and after a long research work, the company chosen was GTS from Colombia.
GTS is a large Colombian company that has more than 300 clients in the government sector and operates in markets such as Chile, Peru, Ecuador and Panama. "GTS is an active and experienced partner that has a lot of notoriety in the market and this for us is also very important. In addition, GTS has a very modern tier 3 data center that will allow us to be able to provide an excellent service to the end customer, "says Jorge Santos Silva, Latin America Business Director.
The Colombian market was chosen due to the positive dynamics that it presents with the modernization of its technological park. "We believe that due to government regulations that regulate aspects such as data security and privacy, we have an important window of opportunity to insert RaaS into this market," concludes Jorge Santos Silva.
IT PEERS and U3: Joint Venture Agreement on the Way
For the first time since its beginning, IT PEERS will enter into a Joint Venture contract. The company chosen for this particular partnership was U3, a Brazilian technological company that operates in the area of Insurance.

This product bundling follows a verticalisation strategy started this year by IT PEERS with the creation of Multipeers4Fleets, a business monitoring system fully designed to serve the transport sector.
The native integration of Multipeers and Blackbird (U3's insurance solution) will be marketed in a PaaS platform (platform as a service) and will allow a vertical specialization for the insurance segment for the retail area, corresponding to the expectations and requirements of customers and large distributors. "Throughout this year, and after approaching the major players in the Latin American market, we feel emerging needs in this business segment and it is with great pride that we will soon be on the market with this solution," says Jorge Santos Silva, IT PEERS Latin America Business Director.
