Atos to invest €13.4m in Latin America in 2012

Par admin - le 15 janvier 2012

As part of its ongoing investment programme, Atos is particularly looking to boost its operations in Brazil, where it is aiming to be among the top 10 IT services providers in the next ten years.

Atos sees strong opportunities for growth in this market, especially in the telecoms and public sectors (health and transport). According to the IT services company, upcoming major sporting events (the World Cup in 2014 and the Olympic Games in 2016) will act as a catalyst for local IT investment. Atos has been the official technology supplier and a major sponsor of the Olympic Games for over 20 years. The contract signed with the International Olympic Committee has already been extended to include the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi (Russia) and the 2016 Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro.

In addition to Brazil, Atos plans to boost its operations in Argentina, Mexico, Colombia and Chile. These five countries make up 90% of the Latin American IT services market.
