Acsys looks to open Mexican operation next month

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

Argentine IT firm Acsys expects to launch a Mexican subsidiary next month, company general manager Daniel Navon told BNamericas.

The company is targeting at least two or three projects in Mexico, the executive said. "The outlook that we have for this market is excellent. We're seeing a lot of activity in the data center segment there."

The company opened an office in Chile two years ago, where Acsys currently has some 15-20 active clients, Navon said. "The Chilean market is different compared to Argentina in the data center segment, since in Chile the data center market is very mature."

Navon said that in Argentina, data center services offered such as hosting and colocation are basic compared to those being offered in Chile, where "the market is demanding value-added applications."

The Chilean operation expanded some 30-40% in 2010, and Navon expects similar growth for this year.

The firm has four partners - NetApp, VMware, Riverbed and Symantec. In Argentina, the company has some 40-45 customers.

The next step in the company's expansion plan is Peru, the executive said without providing further details.
