Excerpted from the Peru Career Guide

The recent arrival of Google in Peru signals the rise of the country's IT industry. Currently, the IT market in Peru is small, but it is expected to be one of the highest-growth markets in the world by 2015.

Last year, IBM announced a five-year IT services agreement with the Peruvian government to develop a cloud infrastructure to centralize the IT operations of state-owned companies across a variety of industries. The adoption of cloud computing by the government is expected to continue and stretch to other areas of e-government.
