Microsoft LATAM – Committed to driving innovation for customers and impact in our communities.

Within a slowing economy, shrinking IT budgets and limited GDP growth, Latin America still remains a land of great opportunity and talent. Within this economic uncertainty, technology plays an important role to empower people within this mobile first cloud first world. Microsoft is a trusted partner to our customers and partners in Latin America. Over the past almost 30 years, our presence and commitment has made us one of the most highly-relevant technology partners in the region and the #1 Multinational for which people want to work (According to Great Place to Work Institute 2015).

We are customer obsessed and committed on driving innovation for our customers across the region. We are focused on making an impact in our communities and improving people’s quality of life. We make an impact and empower others through: fueling local economic development, creating jobs and enabling entrepreneurs, and building digitally inclusive societies.

With our team of 4,000 across the region, we help generate over 1M jobs with the support of our 80,000 business Partners. We have a growing developer ecosystem of over 846,000 developers and have supported 8,577 new startups in the region. We have donated over $441M in software and cash to non-profit organizations across the region, and continue empowering them to achieve more through programs like Office 365 for non-profits and Office 365 for students. Through our YouthSpark program we have reached over 60M youth, and have granted $1.5M to empower youth.

1. Driving Innovation for our customers in Latin America
We are customer obsessed, and committed to giving our customers the most innovative solutions so that they can drive their business forward and make their customers happy. We are focused on helping them to reinvent productivity and business processes, build a more intelligent cloud and create more personal computing.

Here are some examples of how we’ve done this in LATAM:
a. Mexico: With the goal of continuing to improve the services offered to Mexican taxpayers, Mexico’s Tax Administration System (SAT) uses Microsoft Azure to receive electronic documents in a more secure and reliable manner. The implementation of this solution helped the tax agency record an increase of 8.24 percent more tax returns compared with the previous year’s statements (2013 vs 2014). DeclaraSAT, the annual returns process, on Microsoft Azure reached more than 1,539,000 filings, compared with traditional DeclaraSAT, which recorded 299,300.
b. Colombia: Agrocampo, a Colombian company whose core business is focused on providing agricultural raw materials to farmers, country workers and veterinarians in more than 897 municipalities, uses Microsoft Office 365 to enable mobility on any device to its sales force. With this they are able to use Windows devices at work, Apple devices at home and on the road, all of them connected with Office 365 and OneDrive, making information available wherever they travel.
c. Brazil: Rio 2016 Olympic Games will be powered by Microsoft technology. Azure and Office 365 will support the games providing innovative digital platforms and services and an immersive experience for users watching and interacting with the games.
d. Chile: Admetricks is a startup, empowered by BizSpark Program. The company has 360 computers with Azure to analyze large amounts of information to help decision-making related to marketing of its customers. With this support and business skill, Admetricks has doubled its customer base and now operates in Chile, Spain, Colombia and Peru.

2. Microsoft Impact in Latin America communities
We have been present in the region for almost three decades, thus we feel just as much part of these communities as the citizens that live here. We are committed to not only work here, but also help local governments and leaders in making these communities better and more prosperous.

This is what we are committed to doing in LATAM:
a. Fueling Local Economic Development - We’re proud of our 29 year history in Latin America, and we’ve learned a lot about the challenges and opportunities the region has had to overcome (and still has). Unfortunately, Latin America represents only 3.2% of the total global investment in Research and Development while we have nearly 10% of the world’s population (El Estado de la Ciencia 2013, report).

i. To contribute, we are making significant investments in research & innovation development across the region (Microsoft Technology Center - Mexico & Brazil; Bing Development Center, Advanced Technology Brazil, and Azure Region Datacenter in Brazil). We remain committed to innovation in Latin America, and are looking to continue our investments and partnerships.

ii. We believe we have a strong cycle of innovation at work in Latin America, where our ecosystem of 50,000 active partners (total is 80,000) leverage new technologies like Windows, Office 365, Dynamics and Azure, and make a profitable business by providing related products and services. This enables them to generate IT employment and innovation, thus fueling local economic growth and 1M direct jobs.

iii. We are invested in the future of education in the region because we believe that education contributes directly to innovation and economic growth and prosperity. Since launching the Partners in Learning program in LATAM, a total of 3.8M teachers and 116M students have benefitted from the program.

iv. Through the LATAM “I can code” initiative in 2014, more than 2M youth in the region learned how to code, helping them to acquire critical and logical thinking skills, problem solving skills and enhancing creativity. We believe there is a strong connection between education and innovation that leads to stronger economic growth.

v. 190,000 students in Latin America are changing the world through the Imagine Cup competition, where students from all around the world can learn new skills and apply their knowledge to the task of developing technical solutions which help tackle some of the world’s most pressing problems. Latin America has been a relevant seedbed for Imagine Cup projects that have stood out in the competition, as well as becoming real businesses that generate jobs.

vi. Microsoft’s YouthSpark has benefitted 60M young people in Latin America and is committed to further its impact in the region with a recent announce of $75 million in community investments over the next three years, to increase access to computer science education for all youth, and especially for those from under-represented backgrounds around the world.

vii. Microsoft believes technology can be a powerful force that opens exciting opportunities for nonprofits to better achieve their missions and accelerate their impact. That's why the company has donated $441 MD in cash and software to 5.620 organizations in the Latin American region.

viii. Microsoft has also enabled the Office 365 Nonprofit donation in the region, where qualified nonprofits get Office 365 for free or at a significant discount. Office 365 reduces costs, increase organizational capacity, and foster better team collaboration to create more impact.

b. Creating jobs and enabling entrepreneurs- Driving innovation and entrepreneurship has always been an integral part of Microsoft’s DNA. Latin America is a very young region with vast human capital. In fact, 40% of our population is still very young. In addition, the entrepreneurship rate in the region is low at only 18.5%.

According to the World Bank, we have an “innovation gap”. In Latin America, the entrepreneurial boom is a growing trend, although it does still face a number of challenges. Entrepreneurship is now a necessity in order to take advantage of development and employment opportunities; however, the ability to innovate is a skill that needs to be better promoted.

While science and technology continue to drive advances in our increasingly innovation-based global economy, there is economic uncertainty around the world contributing to high levels of unemployment.

i. Based on this situation, Microsoft has implemented a range of different strategies in order to drive entrepreneurship: Employment training, economic opportunities and support for business and social enterprises run by young people, especially women, have all been possible thanks to YouthSpark’s POETA program, which operates in seven countries in Latin America: Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Mexico and Peru.

ii. In Brazil, through our partnership with Acelera Partners, Microsoft is helping accelerate startups in the country in addition to the 12 Microsoft Innovation Centers (MICs) established through partnerships with local universities.

iii. In 2014, we opened the digital business incubator "Imagine Business Lab" in Chile as a result of an alliance between CORFO (Chile’s Economic Development Agency), Microsoft Chile and the private sector. This initiative aims to support more than 1,000 digital startups that are linked to information technology over the next five years. We also support initiatives conducted by the Government’s Start-up Chile initiative, a program created in 2010 to attract early-stage, high-potential entrepreneurs to bootstrap their start-ups in Chile from all parts of the world

iv. Over 63,200 SMBs have benefited from our alliance with INADEM. (Entrepreneur National Institute) in Mexico.

v. YouthSpark has also challenged young people in Latin America to create Solutions that address the biggest opportunities the region have to close opportunity gaps. Among them is Belén Guede, from Chile, who was one of the winners of this year’s Challenge for Change. Belén’s project aims to promote computer science among youth across the region, using local libraries as a meeting place at least once a week with volunteers so they can learn, and learn by doing.

vi. Imagine Cup is fueling entrepreneurship in the region. An example is the Pro Deaf team from Brazil. They won Imagine Cup in 2010 with a software that translates text and voice to sign language, and are now in partnership with Microsoft to bring their solution to the Enterprise environment in order to make it more inclusive.

Another powerful example is EFitFashion, Brazilian winners of the 2015 edition of Imagine Cup with their online marketplace to sell custom made and tailored clothes in a simpler way. The goal is to increase the development of the ePMG software, which generates patterns of clothes automatically, based on the user's measures. That way, everyone can find clothes that fits perfectly, no matter what type of body.

vii. 5K new start-ups in the Latin American region has been supported by BizSpark, an initiative that gives three years of software, services, tech support and access to the cloud via Azure to entrepreneurs.

viii. Innovacien is a nonprofit organization in Chile and also one of our main YouthSpark key partners, formed by young professionals who believe in the power of technology and innovation in education. Innovacien is an NGO that fosters XXIst Century Skills in schools. It focuses on teacher training, mainly in poor schools through the use of technology, promoting entrepreneurship, creativity and innovation in schools.

c. Building Digitally Inclusive Societies - Putting technology in the hands of someone who did not have access is a powerful step on the path leading to employability, economic recovery and a better future. In Latin America, we are partnering with local governments, NGOs, educators, and community and business leaders to connect communities through technology.

In Brazil, the sixth largest economy in the world and growing, more than 40% of businesses in the country can’t find qualified staff. There is a clear and growing gap between the skills of unemployed workers and the skills needed to perform today’s jobs. We can’t close our employment gap without first addressing the skills gap.

i. The Arhuacos are the largest Indigenous Community in Colombia, living in the top of the Sierra Nevada in Santa Marta, a mountain ecosystem. Today, after years of work, they are implementing Dynamics CRM online and Office 365 to strengthen their governance, save ancient (pre-hispanic) knowledge, and recover land information, which is available in the Cloud. Passwords are exclusive for the Arhuacos community, as a part of Microsoft commitment with trust, respect and privacy with their information culture.

ii. In Colombia, Microsoft partnered with the Medellin government for the Medellin Digital project, focused on bringing broadband connectivity and technological skills to boost education, entrepreneurship and employment. Through this initiative, public schools and libraries, as well as local government offices got computer labs and free internet Access, along with better services for the citizens.

iii. In an effort to empower language communities across Latin America to preserve their languages and cultures, and also to bring technology to empower every person and organization in the region, since 2006 Microsoft introduced Windows in quechua, which is still included as a language option in Windows 10.

iv. In line with this commitment, Microsoft introduced this year Yucatec Maya and Querétaro Otomi to Microsoft Translator’s ever-growing list of supported languages.

These language systems were developed in collaboration with community partners in Mexico, who created the automatic translations systems to permanently bridge the translation gap between these endangered languages and the rest of the world.

v. Among the training and development opportunities and programs we support across the region, in Brazil we are teaming up with CDI (Center for Digital Inclusion), a nonprofit that transforms communities by increasing access to computers and education in entrepreneurship. Wanderson Skrock, a young brazilian, native from a small favela, who grew up in a though environment and was even involved in a drug trafficking organization, encountered CDI, from where he got his first meaningful experience with technology.

Today, Wanderson travels to poor communities in a “technology truck” to extend the reach of CDI’s programming. By bringing computers and classes into the favelas, Wanderson and other educators aim to motivate people who would otherwise have little or no access to technology.

vi. In Jamaica the TV White Spaces (TVWS) project - run by Jamaica’s Gov (Dynamic Spectrum Access & Funds for the PoG parallel Pilot) NetHope (Project manager & Integrator), and USAID (Funding the School Pilot)- is the best way to reach people located in the last mile connectivity, by using the dynamic spectrum leftover by other users at a low cost, and without any interference. Today, 10 rural areas in Jamaica have digital connection and we will continue to expand this initiative in the rest of the region.

We are living in an age of transformation and economic uncertainty. For Latin America to truly thrive, we see fueling local economic development, enabling jobs and entrepreneurship and building digitally inclusive societies as key areas of opportunity for true economic transformation.

Our mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. We believe deeply in the power of technology to help, and we have a long-term commitment to partnering with Latin America to help tackle these issues in a way that helps the region weather these times of uncertainty and embrace these times as an opportunity to tap into the creativity and talent and come out stronger in the end.
