Summary

Segments like retail and consumer packaged goods, oil and energy, telecoms, and automotive are witnessing dramatic growth in Brazil, leading to an increasing number of enterprises entering Brazil with plans to expand into the Latin American region in the future. We have also seen an increase in inquiries from Forrester clients asking about a strategic partner to support their expansion plans in Brazil and the rest of Latin America. Setting up business in Brazil and IT sourcing for these operations poses a unique set of challenges — a function of Brazil's complex internal market. Local Brazilian suppliers bring knowledge of the local business landscape and legal and compliance requirements, an ability to provide on-the-ground support across the country, and a fresh perspective. This report provides an overview of the Brazilian IT services supplier landscape and provides insights aimed at helping sourcing professionals choose the right vendor for the engagement.
