Tuesday, August 23, 2011

Franco-Dutch IT firm Atos (formerly Atos Origin) expects its Latin America revenues to expand 10-12% this year, company CEO for the Southern Andean region Juan Dabusti told BNamericas, without providing hard figures.

The executive said Brazil will account for some 50% of revenues this year, followed by Argentina with 35%. Mexico, Chile and Colombia will make up the remainder.

Atos is focusing this year to gain market share in Chile and Colombia, targeting several verticals including manufacturing and transport. "Our operation in these two countries is very small, but we're focusing our efforts to grow in these markets," Dabusti added.

In Brazil alone, Atos expects its revenues to expand some 10% this year.

In July, Atos shareholders approved the acquisition of Siemens IT Solutions and Services. The acquisition will double Atos' storage capacity and processes for cloud computing, with now more than 30 worldwide data centers, 900,000 SAP users and 90,000 global servers.

In Latin America, Atos has offices in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru.
