With IT spending for cloud computing increasing at an exponential rate in the Middle East, BitTitan sees greater growth prospects for its business across the region.

 Referencing a recent report study on the public cloud market in the Middle East which projects the sector to have a CAGR of 21% until 2027, valued at an estimated Dhs36 billion, Antti Ålander, Senior Channel Manager - EMEA, BitTitan believes “the region is in a very active adoption phase for public cloud services and XaaS (anything as a service) across a wide range of businesses for the next few years.”

 Published by Blueweave Consulting, the Middle East Public Cloud Market Report released earlier this year mentions increasing penetration of cloud services among SMEs as a key driver for the growth of the public cloud market in the region, in addition to increasing demand for Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning services and solutions that enable businesses to monitor, analyze and visualize large volumes of unprocessed data.

“Small businesses in the region, especially in the UAE and Saudi Arabia, are expanding their cloud deployment initiatives to enable faster business analytics that will empower  their enterprises to compete more aggressively in the market and achieve future growth,” added Alander, who will be heading the participation of BitTitan, the global leader in cloud migration and managed services automation, through its international distribution partner Logicom at the forthcoming Gitex Global to be held on October 10-14 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

The highlight of BitTitan’s participation at Gitex will be the relaunch of a license called the Tenant Migration Bundle for Microsoft 365 to Microsoft 365 migrations with MigrationWiz, which is intended to be used as part of the toolset managed service providers and system integrators use to onboard their clients to Microsoft 365 or Google Workspace in most effective way without disruption to client business.
