Practia has more than 20 years of regional experience in turningideas into action.
We began our work in Argentina as
Pragma Consultores, as a group of founding partners who teamed up in order to leverage their multidisciplinary backgrounds, strong academic qualifications, and intimate understanding of the market.
We landed our first research project: the development of a methodology for data quality management. We presented the project at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology).
Our company grew and was restructured as Grupo Pragma Consultores. We began laying the groundwork for our regional growth.
After a year of commercial activity Chile, we inaugurated the Santiago office. Practia Consulting was born.
Inspired by our vision of expanding to all of Ibero-America and serving our many clients with headquarters in Spain, we opened our Madrid office.
During this time, the group grew and expanded. We reached a staff of 300 professionals and had completed 1,000 projects.
This new publication, Perspectiva, allowed 2,000 managers and team members in our regional business systems units to stay informed and updated on the latest tech news.

Operations in Mexico were growing, so we opened our first commercial office in the country. At the same time, we were solidifying our first services in Uruguay and Peru.
Our expansion into Mexico led to the opening of a second office, this time in Mexico City. Our regional consultants now numbered more than 500.
Our regional operations were growing larger. With the inauguration of offices in Bolivia and Uruguay, we solidified our services in both countries, and strengthened our presence in the energy industry.
The energy industry, including the mining sector, was playing an important role in strengthening economic growth in Peru. Practia helped the local industry with this expansion, and opened a national office.
In Argentina, Practia received an
award from the Fundación Sadosky, celebrating our ambitious trajectory to date.
After carrying out point-of-sale testing automation services for one of our retail clients, we created the PosRobot solution. Practia was also recognized as the best local and regional systems integrator by the tech company Amdocs
Practia won first place
in the ENTI consulting firm ranking, run by the Universidad Católica’s Center of Information Technology Studies.
Our clients continued to grow in number, and their industries grew stronger as well. During 2014, we carried out the implementation of Amdocs for Telefónica — a project that began in Argentina and was soon brought to a regional level.
20 years after Practia was created, we now had over 800 consultants in 18 different countries.
We grew. We matured. Sometimes we were right, and sometimes we were wrong. We worked alongside our clients through many regional changes. We unified our brand and took on our new role as a global company.
From operations to strategy, all areas of a business are affected by technological transformation. However, this process looks differently in each industry. Knowing the differences in each one is one of our most valuable strengths.
