Plans to add 500 tech professionals to its LATAM operations
American software giant Oracle Corp is hunting for tech professionals for its Latin American operations.
It is being reported by Nearshore Americas that Oracle is gearing up to add as many as 500 professionals to its LATAM operations. The news comes almost one month after the Austin, Texas-based company reshuffled its top management team in the region.
Oracle has been present in Latin America for more than 30 years with some big name clients in the Latin American among its growing clientele. These include Grupo Bimbo, GNP Seguros, McDonald’s (Arcos Dorados), Dorinka (Walmart), Arcor, Televisa, TV Globo, Solistica, Consultatio and Smartfit.
The expansion comes on the back of rising demand for cloud services in the region. Over the past two years as part of its LATAM expansion, Oracle has built out three data centers in the region with an apparent aim to sell its cloud computing services, which account for a bulk of its revenue.
One of its data centres is under construction in Central Mexican city of Queretaro. Elsewhere in the region, Oracle has already built out three cloud regions; two in Brazil and one in Chile.
Adrián Durán, senior vice president at Oracle America commented that, “We are experiencing a true revolution in Oracle Latin America, a revolution that has to do with the direction the market is taking and what our customers are needing.”
Nearshore Americas reports that Duran was recently promoted to take charge of the company’s application development services. Meanwhile, Rodrigo Galvão, who had been in charge of the company in Brazil for four years, took over as the senior vice president for Tech Cloud in the company.
