Gulf Business Machines (GBM) participated at this year’s Global Oil and Gas Conference and Exhibition (GOGCE) in Kuwait, building on its history in strengthening and supporting the petrochemical industry in the region through IT solutions.

As the sole distributor for IBM – excluding selected IBM products and services – in Kuwait, GBM provides secure and efficient IT ecosystems for oil and gas companies across the region. As an industry that has experienced vulnerability to IT infrastructure in recent months, GBM was onsite to discuss the most effective ways that the industry can protect data in often remote and challenging environments.

“The oil and gas industry in Kuwait continues to be a strong force within the region and in order to support the continual growth across both upstream and downstream sectors, secure and reliable IT infrastructure is essential,” said Piero Corsini, Country General Manager for Khorafi Business Machines (KBM), the Kuwait Company of GBM. “Participating at this year’s Global Oil and Gas Conference and Exhibition allows us to showcase our extensive portfolio and added value services and expertise, from our big data platforms that enhance the veracity of data and the analytics, to our IT security platforms for strengthening onsite cyber security. All this can complement the Kuwait Oil Company initiative ‘Kuwait World Oil Capital’ launched at the conference.”

“With our solutions, organizations gain insights to make real-time decisions about equipment and conditions that help improve the availability and utilization of assets, reduce downtime, increase production, reduce nonproductive drilling time and improve safety.”

The sixth edition of the GOGCE was held at Kuwait International Fairground from 4 to 6 March. The event is organized by Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) in order to strengthen the business partnership with its contractors and subcontractors.

With 24 years of regional expertise and a team of IT experts that provide bespoke solutions for customers across the region, GBM offers an extensive range of IT infrastructure solutions, ranging from consulting, resource deployment, integration, to after-sales support.
