How has the technology market grown in the MEA region over the past few years?
In the Middle East, the oil cycle appears to determine the fate of many sectors, yet the region, perhaps more than any other, is at the epicenter of the megatrends reshaping the world. This region is fast in adopting new technology and in being pioneers in most areas driven by use of technology.
With most enterprises adopting IoT solutions, going digital and using technology in everyday life, we already see huge growth in the technology market and it will only continue growing. Understanding how these structural trends will impact is vital to get a clear picture of how to successfully tackle the challenges we face and to uncover opportunities we may have never considered.
Do you participate at trade shows such as GITEX?
Yes, we have been participating for the last few years and will be showcasing our solutions this year as well.
