Re: LATAM as Leader
@ms.akkineni, good assessment!  They say that "necessity is the mother of invention" - maybe they just need it more - but they are truly taking the strategic steps necessary to be leading innovators - they deserve the rewards.

Re: LATAM as Leader
@Dhagar:

Agree with you totally. Unless they get that opportunity, we don't know what we are missing in future. We can't even take a guess, there is a possibility of missing another Facebook, Microsoft etc.. We never know.

Re: Something Alvin Toffler was right about
Tough financial times equate with finding ways to cut costs. As we've seen in the North American market, that has meant going with cheaper cloud-based solutions. 

Latin America is simply leapfrogging that, by not even starting with traditional infrastructure. They are moving from completely nothing over to the cloud.

Re: Something Alvin Toffler was right about
Interesting points and very informative! and I agree I think once a company is able to do something new in one particular area it sets the tone for the next area.

Re: LATAM in the lead
Not to forget they have handful of advantages like - required vision, affordability for infrastructure, less exposure to race which will give them much needed focus to drive this in right direction. These are not yet in watch list yet , so not that pressure to keep up or stand out with expectations.

Re: LATAM as Leader
@ms.akkineni - it does work and allows developing countries to enter the markets and have a shot.  It truly becomes a winning proposition for all.

Re: LATAM as Leader
@DHagar:

It makes sense that the developing countries have both the interest and lower-cost infrastructure to provide affordable packages that deliver real value.


Very valid point. Having inetrest is one thing. But low cost infrastiructure and affordability are the real stand outs for those developing conuntries. Very pronising on the whole.

Thanks @Joe for sharing.

Good insightful information on how other countries are making progress in cloud area. I also recall reading something last month one of the LATM or south american countries allocating majority of their funds and investments in the area of cloud and security.

LATAM as Leader In Virtualized Cloud
I was not aware that LATAM was a world leader in public- and private-cloud adoption.  

This is an interesting statistic by IDC "no less than 40% of all enterprise IT expenditures in LATAM will be spent on the cloud by 2018 -- with this number rising to more than half of all "IT infrastructure, software, services and technology" spending by 2020.

It will be exciting to see the future of infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS).
