IBM Plans Cloud Data Center in Colombia

IBM will invest US$17 million in a new data center in Bogota, Colombia.  The new center will provide Colombian companies with Cloud Computing and Big Data services.  The new facility expands the US$8 million investment IBM made in Colombia when the company opened a data center in 2011.

Since 2009, IBM has opened nine IT Services Centers located in Brazil, Mexico, Costa Rica, Chile, Colombia, Peru and Uruguay.

According to Colombian consulting firm Vision Growth Consulting, "Colombia is one of the fastest growing countries outsourcing datacenter services in Latin America, with an estimated 15.3% growth of the data center services market in Colombia in 2013, mainly driven by cloud computing, among others, which is already a reality in the country."

"In the current competitive environment, Colombia companies are looking for high value solutions that help them solve complexity through innovation and business insight by addressing organic growth and productivity issues. Our new datacenter and our professionals aim to contribute to the private and public companies' development and the country's progress. This new investment showcases our clients' trust in our expertise and services, as well as the commitment IBM has made to the country's growth," said Francisco Thiermann, General Manager IBM Colombia.
