SÃO PAULO, Brazil, Feb. 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Enterprises in Brazil are looking to digital business service providers to help them build the well-designed and creative digital products their customers expect, according to a new report published today by Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq: III), a leading global technology research and advisory firm.
The 2019-2020 ISG Provider Lens™ Digital Business – Solutions and Service Partners Report for Brazil finds digital business providers building up their competencies in integrated designs, digital marketing, artificial intelligence, design thinking and prototyping. IT service providers are entering the Brazilian digital business market with a clear focus on the customer journey.
The report sees Brazil, with 284 million mobile users, as a huge mobile e-commerce opportunity. More than 85 percent of the country’s residents have made purchases using a mobile device. “These are overwhelming numbers that illustrate the importance of customer journey and digital business services,” said Jan Erik Aase, director and global leader, ISG Provider Lens Research.
Beyond mobile sales, using digital business services to change the customer journey or improve business agility causes a digital disruption that spans all business processes, including sales, production, the supply chain and product design, the report says.
The report sees digital product lifecycle services in Brazil improving quickly through the use of DevOps and testing automation. Providers are including containers in their DevOps approaches, with containers gaining prominence for their multi-cloud deployments and reputation for reducing failures. The report sees a growing demand for container technology among Brazilian companies.
Many providers are also starting to deliver new digital services under managed cloud contracts, the report says. Outcome-based contracts have appeared, but no contractual best practice has yet emerged. Providers of digital backbone managed services, like digital product lifecycle providers, are incorporating DevOps, with related automation platforms emerging as a competitive differentiator.
The area of blockchain services, meanwhile, has attracted many service providers, but the number of projects and the amount of revenue in Brazil has not grown significantly in the past year, the report says. In Brazil, blockchain has seen a few practical use cases in the financial industry.
The 2019-2020 ISG Provider Lens™ Digital Business – Solutions and Service Partners Report for Brazil evaluates the capabilities of 26 providers across four quadrants: Customer Journey Services, Digital Product Lifecyle Services, Digital Backbone Managed Services and Blockchain Services.
The report names Accenture and IBM as leaders in all four quadrants and Stefanini as a leader in three. CI&T, Cognizant and Wipro are named as leaders in two quadrants, and Atos, DXC Technology, Ilegra, Publicis Sapient, Tech Mahindra and TIVIT are named leaders in one.
