As the primary contractor of a technical team made up of US- and Brazil-based companies, PTS Data Center Solutions provided consulting services to the state of Sergipe. The Brazilian state had undertaken a statewide IT modernization project, with these priorities:

  • Expand the state fiber and wireless broadband network
  • Modernize the state government’s data center
  • Data security
  • Business continuity
  • Backup data center

The IT system expansion benefited key government services, including the online emergency reporting system, the online tax collection system, remote monitoring, and expanded the CIOSP system. The expanded network now serves 100% of the population with connectivity, including 170,000 student on the SIGA System, and 192,000 student with IT Labs Distance Education. Additionally, a new system for hospital administration and telemedecine exams provide tremendous improvement.

The success of this project has increased the efficiency of public administrators, created jobs, and has grown the economy. Through the enhanced use of digital resources, companies have increased productivity, and can be more competitive. All of this came at a development cost of just $4USD per person in the state, with connectivity costs being reduced by up to 70%. What a bargain for such an improvement to the quality of life and the quality of services for Sergipe!
