  • 5. Key Findings • Brazil's economic footprint, combined with having the largest domestic IT consumption in all of Latin America, as well as its status as a BRIC nation make it a natural short-listed choice when evaluating potential destinations for IT services. • Brazil needs to align government priorities with academia and the commercial sector to harness all its strengths to drive the transition from BRIC promise to practical reality. The window of opportunity is small, and the country must act quickly. • Brazil's challenge is to be able to plan and execute to meet demand at the pace of offshore growth rates, with key skills at the right place, time and price (not necessarily the lowest price).
