Healthcare

The health sector in Brazil has shown strong growth in recent years and market expectations indicate that this expansion will continue for a number of reasons that affect demand, such as the changing age pyramid, the growth of the elderly population and the desire for better quality services; and also factors driving supply, such the growth of private investment and the opening of the market to foreign capital.

Technology has already had a significant impact on the technical areas of health (treatment, prevention, medicines, etc.) but the effect of information technology on the management and productivity of the health sector is still in its early stages. The penetration of software in the overall chain is low, from health centers to the suppliers and retailers of this chain.

One of ORIA’s investment theses is SaaS solutions focused primarily on enhancing productivity, management capacity and information for this sector. This includes the operations of the health agents (hospitals, health insurance, clinics), the supply chain (medicines, materials, equipment) and the patients (prevention, assessment and monitoring).

Logistics

In a nation of continental proportions like Brazil, logistics is of fundamental importance. Given the poor quality of the country’s investments in this sector, logistics is currently a major obstacle for the Brazilian economy. Estimates from the FDC (Dom Cabral Foundation) indicate that transport costs consume as much as 12% of companies’ revenues. The demand for software solutions in this area has grown, since it is an effective way of reducing costs and improving operations.
One of ORIA’s investment theses is solutions for the integration of supply chains and exchange of information from software platforms that help companies minimize logistics costs and increase the efficient control of spending in the area.  

Mobility

One of the major trends in technology today is mobility, as the growing penetration of smartphones allows access to the web and to information anywhere and at any time. There are currently 260 million mobile devices in Brazil, although less than 60 million of them have access to data packets and can be used at full capacity. This is a factor that is taken into account in our investments.

ORIA’s mobility thesis is divided into three key areas: SaaS for mobile device management, the goal of which is to help IT and finance departments control all their company’s mobile devices; the second are platforms for the development and management of mobile applications, providing a platform where the users of the mobile applications can make their own customizations and developments; and the last area is mobile communication software.

Cybersecurity

The information security sector is growing in importance all over the world, both for companies and for individuals. Online crime is already comparable to the drug trade in terms of the losses it causes, but the capacity of companies to protect themselves is lower than in the offline world.

Ória’s thesis is based on finding companies that combine development capacity and ongoing technology evolution in their products, and experience in providing specialized services that allow clients to get maximum value from the solutions. This is particularly true for small and medium enterprises that do not have the qualified human capital to protect themselves against online threats, which affect all companies equally.

Since the information security market is highly globalized, as there are no firm geographic barriers in the virtual world, major opportunities exist to increase the scale of local solutions through internationalization. 

Big Data

Competition is increasingly fierce in a corporate environment,  there is a growing need to make decisions with greater assertiveness possible so that access to information is fundamental. With the massification of the use of the web and smartphones, primarily the volume of data is growing exponentially, it is estimated that every 18 months the total volume of data produced in our society more than doubled. Usually companies can analyze structured data, such as revenue per point of sale. However, there is great value which is still little explored, in relating these databases with other external databases that are typically unstructured databases.
ORIA’s investments for big data is horizontal, we believe the big data should be applied in other sectors to create competitive advantage. We also seek companies that have proprietary technologies for high-volume data analysis.

 

Satellite ERP Products

ERP is software designed to integrate the various departments of a company, unifying the information from different areas into a single platform. There are, however, a series of activities that cannot be managed in an ERP system since they are too specific. With the possibility of offering software on the cloud, in the SaaS model, a number of companies have emerged offering complementary ERP solutions that connect and communicate with the ERP system. The potential market for these types of solutions is significant since providers can cater to clients from different sectors of the economy and the SaaS format means they can be used by companies of all sizes. 

Human Capital Management – HCM

For most of the 20th century the goal of most people was to find a stable job, while for companies the goal was to keep their employees loyal and reduce turnover. As a result of globalization and the advent of the information age, however, new skills have become necessary to achieve professional success: entrepreneurship, teamwork, flexibility and creativity, among others. Companies, meanwhile, seek to retain and motivate the best talent, considering that people are the greatest strategic assets of companies.  
We see two major growth vectors within this thesis. The first is the renewal cycle for exchanging legacy systems and on-premises software for SaaS solutions and the second involves new functionalities based on the intensive use of data and machine learning. 

IoT

Over the past 10 years, processing costs have fallen by 40x and bandwidth by 60x, IoT sensors cost less than US$0.60 and WiFi and smartphones are “ubiquitous”. With this dynamic and populated ecosystem, IoT will change productivity in the corporate world by creating a new industrial segment of Internet of Things – IoT applied to corporate sectors, in particular manufacturing.

McKinsey & Company expects the economic impact of IoT to reach US$11 trillion per year by 2025. We anticipate the emergence in Brazil of new providers of corporate solutions using IoT-based solutions, not just devices, that will save more than R$1 billion per year for manufacturing and other sectors by 2020.

FinTech

The Brazilian finacial market is one of the most developed in the world in terms of technology, a legacy from the era of hyperinflation when uninvested money would quickly lose its purchasing power. To have an idea of its size, Brazilian banks alone invested more than BRL21 billion in technology in 2014, which represented 18% of IT spending in the country. The low level of banking penetration (40% of Brazilians do not have bank accounts) represents an important driver of this chain, which has seen its assets grow by 15% p.a. on average since 2010 (research by the Brazilian Banking Federation).

Advertising Tech

The media market has undergone huge transformations, with the emergence of new channels and new formats for marketing campaigns. One such transformation is the emergence of the digital environment, the area that has the most growth potential and that has received the largest investments. A number of new solutions have emerged in the digital environment that go beyond traditional retargeting. They use new technologies such as big data that allow marketing campaigns to reach a mass audience and at the same time be highly personalized. In Brazil, the digital media market is still quite new and represents nearly 15% of the overall market, although it has been growing at rates of more than 20%.

Our investment thesis forecasts significant growth of digital media as a percentage of all media spending by corporations. Added to this, the digital media chain is highly fragmented and complex, with some companies responsible for providing information on consumers (DMPs – data management platforms) and others in charge of buying advertising more efficiently (DSPs – demand side platforms). In our thesis, we expect a consolidation of the sector and the emergence of full providers.

According to our understanding of this value chain, although on the one hand traditional banking services are highly concentrated, on the other there are an enormous number of small and midsized businesses specialized in their own sectors, such as insurance, asset management and means of payment.

Grupo Interplayers

Its value proposition is to integrate and streamline the distribution chain in order to improve inventory levels at the end of the chain (pharmacy), which results in more availability and consequently more sales throughout the chain. In addition to the e-marketplace, known as Pharmalink, Interplayers offers other services such as management of loyalty programs and management of sales promotion and merchandising services.
