Brazilian IT firm Microcity is looking to bill 500mn reais (US$318mn) in five years, local online news agency Baguete said.

With the aim of diversifying its portfolio and services - such as infrastructure maintenance, mission critical services and platform migration - last year Microcity acquired Brazilian IT provider Eclipse.

"Our goal is to create a platform for complementary products and services.... To achieve this, we have focused on strategic alliances and acquisitions," company director Luis Carlos Nacif said.

According to the executive, Microcity's acquisitions and partnerships will target cloud computing, virtualization, communication and network services.

For example, the company recently closed a deal with LogicNet, a network and communications solutions provider. The two firms will work on outsourcing and net management services, said Nacif.

Currently, Microcity's partners include Triple S - a company that supports the creation of data centers for cloud computing and builds public, private and hybrid clouds - and Xtrategus, a Microsoft Gold Certified company.

Microcity also provides outsourcing of IT infrastructure and desktop LAN. It has offices in São Paulo and Brasília, with more than 350 employees.
