8.Executive summary
9.Competition will stimulate dynamism in all countries, driving telecoms service revenue to USD179 billion in Latin America by 2018
10.Handset data will generate about 60% of revenue growth during 2013–2018 and will become the second-largest source after mobile voice by 2018
11.We forecast fixed and mobile revenue growth in all countries, but it will be weakest in Chile and Mexico where levels of competition are high
12.Forecast revision: we have revised up our revenue forecast to reflect stronger than expected smartphone take-up and rising Internet demand
13.Key trends, drivers and assumptions for the mobile market [1]
14.Key trends, drivers and assumptions for the mobile market [2]
15.Key trends, drivers and assumptions for the fixed market
16.Key implications and recommendations for telecoms operators
17.Regional forecasts and cross-country comparison
18.Geographical coverage: We model the seven largest markets, which account for about 90% of LATAM's total telecoms service revenue
19.Market context: The two largest countries by population – Brazil and Mexico – generated 56% of the region's telecoms retail revenue in 2013
20.Fixed and mobile penetration: Fixed broadband growth will remain solid whereas mobile will slowdown, except for mobile M2M
21.Mobile penetration: Handset penetration will slow down as markets mature
22.Mobile connections: 3G will become the dominant technology in 2015 and LTE will account for 14% of mobile connections in 2018
23.Smartphones and LTE: Smartphones will account for about 60% of handsets in most countries by 2018 as operators stimulate demand
24.Mobile ARPU: Chile and Mexico will have the highest ARPU decline because of increased competition
25.Fixed services: The potential for fixed broadband growth is high in LATAM because the service is underpenetrated and operators are investing
26.Fixed broadband: Argentina has the highest household penetration rate, but Brazil's will significantly increase during the next 5 years
27.Revenue and ARPU: Fixed broadband and mobile ARPU will be more resilient than fixed voice, which will increasingly become a commodity
28.Service revenue: The revenue mix by country will not change dramatically during 2013–2018
29.Revenue mix: Mobile services will grow more than fixed in all countries, increasing mobile's share of retail revenue to 60% in the region in 2018
30.Individual country forecasts
31.Argentina: Service revenue will reach ARS77 billion in 2018, of which mobile services will generate 71%, the highest ratio in LATAM
32.Argentina: Key trends, drivers and assumptions
33.Argentina – mobile: ARPU will continue to grow driven by an increase in smartphones, and a high inflation rate
34.Argentina – fixed: The market looks resilient as broadband, and pay-TV adoption is strong and acts as a retention tool for voice
35.Brazil: Mobile handset data and fixed broadband will drive service revenue to BRL131 billion by 2018
36.Brazil: Key trends, drivers and assumptions
37.Brazil – mobile: Strong smartphone growth will improve the handset mix and will help to ease pressure on ARPU
38.Brazil – fixed: Broadband penetration is low, but competition is stimulating demand and infrastructure is improving
39.Chile: Service revenue will decline 4% in 2014 because of MTR cuts, but retail revenue will continue to grow albeit at a slow rate
40.Chile: Key trends, drivers and assumptions
41.Chile – mobile: ARPU will be under pressure because of MTR cuts between 2014 and 2019 and increased numbers of MVNOs
42.Chile – fixed: We forecast further fixed-to-mobile voice substitution whereas the fixed broadband market will have solid growth
43.Colombia: Service revenue will reach COP21 trillion in 2018, but mobile voice services will continue to be predominant
44.Colombia: Key trends, drivers and assumptions
45.Colombia – mobile: ARPU will peak in 2014, but the MTR cuts and MVNO competition will drive further price pressure thereafter
46.Colombia – fixed: The broadband market will continue to grow as operators continue to investing to meet untapped Internet demand
47.Mexico: Service revenue will grow slowly because new regulation will put significant pressure on mobile voice
48.Mexico: Key trends, drivers and assumptions

Most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes a lot of work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost ...
Why do your mobile transformations need to happen today? Mobile is the strategy that enterprise transformation centers on to drive customer engagement. In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Roger Woods, Director, Mobile Product & Strategy – Adobe Marketing Cloud, covered key IoT and mobile trends that are forcing mobile transformation, key components of a solid mobile strategy and explored how brands are effectively driving mobile change throughout the enterprise.
After more than five years of DevOps, definitions are evolving, boundaries are expanding, ‘unicorns’ are no longer rare, enterprises are on board, and pundits are moving on. Can we now look at an evolution of DevOps? Should we? Is the foundation of DevOps ‘done’, or is there still too much left to do? What is mature, and what is still missing? What does the next 5 years of DevOps look like? In this Power Panel at DevOps Summit, moderated by DevOps Summit Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists l...
Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...
My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress.

MongoDB Atlas leverages VPC peering for AWS, a service that allows multiple VPC networks to interact. This includes VPCs that belong to other AWS account holders. By performing cross account VPC peering, users ensure networks that host and communicate their data are secure. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Jay Gordon, a Developer Advocate at MongoDB, will explain how to properly architect your VPC using existing AWS tools and then peer with your MongoDB Atlas cluster. He'll discuss the secur...
Keeping pace with advancements in software delivery processes and tooling is taxing even for the most proficient organizations. Point tools, platforms, open source and the increasing adoption of private and public cloud services requires strong engineering rigor - all in the face of developer demands to use the tools of choice. As Agile has settled in as a mainstream practice, now DevOps has emerged as the next wave to improve software delivery speed and output. To make DevOps work, organization...
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.
