EVANSTON, Ill., Feb. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In a bid to expand client service, improve business operations and strengthen its presence in Brazil, global sales and marketing firm ZS Associates opened a new office in Sao Paulo. While the firm has served clients in Latin America for most of its history, this is ZS's first office in the region.
Founded in 1983, ZS Associates has more than 2,500 employees who work in more than 20 offices around the word and consult to companies in healthcare, medical devices and diagnostics, technology and financial services.
"We understand this market and have successfully advised many clients in healthcare, pharmaceutical, biotechnology and agribusiness in Brazil for more than 20 years," said Managing Director Chris Wright. "A physical base in the sixth largest economy and pharmaceutical market in the world is a natural progression of our global growth plans. This move will allow us to be closer to our local clients and address their needs even better."
The Sao Paulo office – led by Ramses De La Rosa – is located at Av. Chedid Jafet, 222 - 5o andar, Vila Olimpia. During his 14 years of consulting experience focused on Latin American markets, De La Rosa has counseled clients on commercial strategy and implementation, including sales force productivity, brand planning, forecasting, customer segmentation and targeting, marketing mix optimization, incentive compensation and sales process design. In addition to Latin America, he has also worked with clients in Canada, the United States and Asia.
"Over the years, we have worked with clients in Brazil through hundreds of engagements helping local affiliates and their global corporate offices identify and pursue market entry or expansion opportunities in the Brazilian market," said De La Rosa. "We look forward to serving our clients in the new Sao Paulo office and expanding the range of ZS offerings available in Brazil to better meet client needs and contribute to their success."
Mario Pereira, who has more than 13 years of consulting and commercial strategy experience, will join De La Rosa in the Sao Paulo office. Pereira has counseled pharmaceutical, biotechnology and agribusiness clients in Brazil, the United States and other Latin America countries in areas such as go-to-market strategy and implementation, sales force effectiveness, product launch and incentive compensation.
"In addition to our local team, we will rely on ZS's global expertise and delivery model to bring the highest thought leadership and value to our clients," said Pereira.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee...
