Logicom, the leading regional Distributor of Solutions and Services, hosted a launch event around its Logicom Cloud Marketplace at the Sheraton Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
The event marked the official announcement of Logicom's appointment as a Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider in the region, as well as the launch of the Logicom Cloud Marketplace in Saudi Arabia. The Logicom Cloud Marketplace will operate under the executive sponsorship of Microsoft, one of the Group's key strategic technology partners and a global technology leader that has been key to the technology transformation in the new digital era.
Logicom Cloud Director Georgios Georgiou was on hand to present the Logicom Cloud Marketplace, and emphasize Logicom's dedication to offering the Saudi Arabian market advanced cloud solutions and helping partners and their customers move forward in the new cloud environment.
Regional Director of Logicom Gulf and Saudi Arabia, Mounir Sarkis, said: "The Saudi Market is extremely vital for Logicom and has been consistently one of the fastest growing geographies over the last few years, contributing just under 20% of the Group's revenue in FY15. Technology is changing and so are we as Logicom; the Saudi Market is also developing and maturing rapidly, a trend which is projected to continue, particularly following the announcement of Digitization being set as one of the key pillars of The Kingdom's 'Vision 2030'. We have made significant investments in Saudi and we will continue to do so, in order to execute our Vendors' strategies as well as to enable and lead the transformation of our partners into the digital era."
The Logicom Cloud Marketplace Launch event also featured presentations from both the local Logicom team and Management Executives regarding the business potential of further developing cloud opportunities.
