The Economic Benefits of Cloud Computing in Latin America and the Caribbean
Council of the Americas will hold an in-person panel discussion on the impact of the emerging technology on the region.
Cloud computing is an emerging and transformative technology that's critical to modernizing in the way infrastructure and services operate. It provides scalable, cost-effective, safe, and flexible information storage shaping the backbone of the generative AI revolution. As it offers centralized management of an organization’s data storage, it delivers cost savings and environmental benefits.
Join the Council of the Americas in its DC office for a panel discussion for the release of a report, Economic Impact of Cloud Adoption in Six Latin American Countries, which discusses the impact of cloud computing in the region's economies. The event will present the results of the study of the economic and environmental benefits of cloud computing adoption over 15 years from 2023-2038 in Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, and Uruguay.
The findings of this study will be complimented by an expert panel discussion focusing on cloud computing’s transformative nature—exploring the economic impact of public and private sectors.
A celebratory toast will be held afterward the event.
