The company chose Brazil as its first presence in the region because it has the fifth largest online market with nearly 90 million Internet users(1). The country is expected to have rapid online growth due to high rates of mobile and social media use(2). In addition, the online advertising spend in Brazil was $804 million in 2011(3).

“We are continuing to grow our international footprint and help more local businesses to acquire, manage and retain customers online,” said Nathan Hanks, co-founder and President of ReachLocal. “Brazil is known for high levels of entrepreneurship and SME activity, which makes it an ideal location for the company and hub for expansion in the region.”

With the addition of Brazil, ReachLocal’s global presence now includes North America, Europe, Eastern Europe, Asia Pacific, and South America.

Jose Coscelli is the CEO of ReachLocal Brazil. Prior to joining the company, Mr. Coscelli served as Chief Operating Officer of Globalweb Brazil, a cloud computing company. From 2006 to 2009, Mr. Coscelli was Vice President Sales of Dedalus Prime, an outsourcing provider. From 2001 to 2006, Mr. Coscelli served as Sales Director of Siemens LTDA Brazil.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
