About IT Data
IT Data was started in 2005 by professionals from the ICT industry and from some of the top global ICT market intelligence and consultancy firms. The company was founded with the ambition to:
Increase the awareness and utilization of market intelligence in Brazil
Provide our clients with high quality information and insightful analysis that can effectively support their business strategies
Develop long-term partnerships with clients
In order to achieve these goals, IT Data had to focus on the development of smarter market intelligence products and services. The primary objectives of this strategy were:
Create products and services specifically tailored to the local market conditions, business culture, and economic and political dynamics.
As a local company operated by Brazilian analysts, IT Data has an in-depth knowledge of the country’s challenges and trends and how they affect business and consumers. We are able to provide our clients with more insightful analyses and a unique market perspective that differentiates us from international market intelligence companies.
Create and deploy modern, innovative, and more flexible research methodologies.
Our methodology must allow us Develop projects that completely fulfill the specifications of our clients’ directives by supplying them with reliable information at affordable prices.
Offer affordable products and services: IT Data operates through cloud-based systems and ICT infrastructure, resulting in a modern, remote work environment that significantly reduces operational costs.
This structure allows us to invest more in hiring experienced senior analysts and consultants, thereby charging much less, on average, for our services than other market intelligence providers.
The First Ten Years (2005-2015)
Our strategy was extremely successful. Since its first year of operations, IT Data established itself as one of the most popular and respected market intelligence providers in Brazil, having worked for most of the global ICT stakeholders operating in Brazil. Not only that, IT Data is also considered a reliable source of strategic information for companies, investment banks and groups, and other entities looking to enter the Brazilian market.
