Mexico, Mexico City - February 8, 2018 - ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today announced its business plans and channel strategy for expanding its reach in Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, Argentina, Chile and other Latin American countries. With over 3000 paid customers in the region, the company is expanding in response to its strong performance in 2017. In 2018, ManageEngine will court Latin American customers with a mix of its established and emerging technology solutions as well as a growing team of channel partners to achieve 30% growth in the region.
The International Monetary Fund predicts that overall economic growth in Latin America in 2018 will be 1.9 percent, up from 1.2 percent in 2017. Meanwhile, IT industry analysts such as IDC anticipate aggressive Latin American investments in digital transformation including mobile computing, cloud computing, big data, business intelligence and analytics. To thrive in such an active IT environment, organizations will need to adopt proven, enterprise-class IT management products and align with proven technology partners.
"We're well-positioned to address the requirements of Latin American organizations," said Raj Sabhlok, president of ManageEngine. "The breadth and depth of our IT management suite is unparalleled, and our focus on R&D drives out consistent, substantial investments in new technologies, including hose being evaluated and embraced in the region. And the channel partnerships we're establishing will ensure that these organizations realize maximum business value and advantage from our solutions."
For 2018, bot technology, AI, machine learning, and other new technologies will push the frontiers of IT adoption in Latin American, putting the region on a comprehensive, digital transformation trajectory. Likewise, such technologies are already playing pivotal roles in ManageEngine's research and development and are factoring into the company's immediate and longer-term efforts.
ManageEngine will look forward to seize opportunities presented by more established technologies in 2018. The company's cloud competencies have been recognized by customers and industry observers alike, and its cloud offerings are projected to enjoy phenomenal growth in Latin America. Security will be another important area of focus, and ManageEngine will supplement its existing lineup with new products that will address identity and access management, device management, password management and other growing security needs.
Channel partners continue to be a cornerstone of ManageEngine's success as they are driving 95 percent of the company's growth in the region. Consequently, ManageEngine is looking to expand its existing network of 40 channel partners to address the growing demand. The company also plans to categorize its Latin American channel partners into Platinum, Gold & Silver partners and introduce incentive plans this year. Partners will again play an important role in extending support to organizations in the region, making product support available in Portuguese and Spanish.
