Alpha Data, the UAE’s leading systems integrator, has announced that it attained 30% year-on-year growth for the first half of 2014 driven by major accomplishments such as the completion of a data center development contract for ‘Ankabut,’ the UAE’s Advanced National Research and Education Network (NREN).
The highly productive period also saw the company being named ‘Outstanding Citrix Solution Advisor – 2013’ for the Middle East, winning a number of large projects collectively worth more than Dhs20m, and launching a new company called Alpha Data Recruitment.
Ankabut connects academic and public institutions across the UAE through a cost-efficient networking model. In March, Alpha Data was commissioned to design and install a new data center for hosting academic institutions services as part of Ankabut’s R&D network. The facility will serve as a major information platform for the UAE’s education sector. Two of Alpha Data’s key technology partners, Cisco and Fortinet, helped with the management, network and security aspects of the new data center.
In April, Alpha Data reaffirmed its status as a market innovator by announcing that it would be locally distributing the ‘Magnolia Screen,’ the most advanced and highest-quality resolution LED display to be launched in the region. The screen uses the revolutionary Common Cathode technology to display crisp and seamless 1920 x 1080 Full HD images at a 130” diagonal size.
Another first-half highlight for Alpha Data was its being named ‘Outstanding Citrix Solution Advisor – 2013’ for the Middle East by US-based multinational software company Citrix Systems in May. The recognition reflects the company’s exceptional ability to deliver high-performance Citrix-powered systems meeting stringent government, banking and industry automation requirements. Alpha Data was also officially designated Gold Citrix Solution Advisor status in the region, certifying its high level of expertise and commitment to Citrix technologies.
The recent launching of Alpha Data Recruitment will further expand the company’s role to include the connecting of enterprises and job candidates across the MENA market. The new recruiting firm is guided by the principles of Totality of Solutions, Best Fit, and Hands-on Real Life Approach. Alpha Data Recruitment’s services include Recruitment and Outsourcing.
“We started off 2014 strong with the winning of a number of landmark deals and capped off the first half with strong growth from in H1. All the right people, resources and plans are in place for us to achieve a record year and further cement our industry leadership. With a proven track record of over 30 years under our belt, Alpha Data intends to continue surprising its stakeholders and competitors alike and exceed the expectations of our customers with our exceptional level and quality of services and solutions,” said Zakaria Ibbini, Director at Alpha Data.
