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.
The association between the two companies already has a year of intense negotiations and the result of this whole year of work is a co-branding that will mean an increase in the product mix of both companies. 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.
