ISG Provider Lens™ report on cloud transformation, XaaS and related services shows that local providers are strong in service delivery to midsize customers and in managed services

SÃO PAULO, Dec. 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The cloud computing market in Brazil is evolving in a unique way, offering opportunities for local providers to compete with large multinational providers of cloud services, according to a new report published today by Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq: III), a leading global technology research and consulting company.


ISG Provider Lens™ Cloud Operation/Transformation Services and XaaS for Brazil 2019 report reveals that some large cloud providers are more focused on the US market, giving Brazilian companies an opening to expand their cloud-related businesses in the country . The report lists Brazilian cloud service providers such as Sky.One , TIVIT, UOL Diveo and Dedalus Prime as leaders or rising stars in segments of the Brazilian cloud transformation, cloud operation services and XaaS markets. Brazilian providers are particularly strong in serving midsize customers and providing managed services.

“Brazilian service providers have a window of opportunity to partner with hyperscale IaaS providers before the market gets crowded,” said Esteban Herrera, partner and global leader at ISG Research.

Potential cost savings are driving Brazilian companies to migrate workloads to large cloud providers, according to the report. The average cost savings is 38%, although this number is not as high as suggested by hyperscale IaaS vendors. A reduction in infrastructure incidents may be more attractive to some companies.

A cost savings of 30% or more is “a good reason to move to the cloud, but the need for incident reduction and greater infrastructure availability is more compelling in many cases,” Herrera said.

The report notes that hybrid cloud use is common among large enterprises that are still burdened with legacy systems, but less so for midsize companies. Midsize companies that lack the scale or complexity to fully leverage a private datacenter can realize significant savings from a lift-and-shift approach when moving legacy systems such as SAP to enterprise clouds.

In the hyperscale cloud market, Microsoft and Amazon Web Services are leaders in Brazil, with Microsoft outpacing AWS in total contract value, according to the report. Microsoft has 19,670 partners and resellers in Brazil, while AWS has 204, according to the report. IBM, Google and Oracle are in the early stages of creating cloud partner programs.

The ISG Provider Lens™ Cloud Transformation / Operation Services and XaaS report for Brazil assesses the capability of 29 cloud providers serving this market across five quadrants: Public Cloud Transformation for Large Accounts, Public Cloud Transformation for Midsize Enterprises, Managed Cloud Services Public Cloud for Large Accounts, Managed Public Cloud Services for Midsize Businesses, and IaaS Enterprise Cloud. TIVIT is listed as a leader in all five quadrants, and Dedalus Prime and UOL Diveo are listed as leaders or rising stars in four. Other leaders or rising stars include Sky.One , BRLink, Eveo, Accenture, Capgemini, Claranet and IBM.
