Alpha Data, the UAE’s leading systems integrator with over 30 years track record, recently renewed its contract with United Printing Press (UPP), one of the leading printing firms in the Middle East–a move that reflected the strong partnership between the two companies. Under the terms of agreement, Alpha Data will deliver innovative and connected infrastructure solutions to meet the printing company’s information technology (IT) needs. The two firms first collaborated in 2013 with Alpha Data providing project management, consultancy, and training services to UPP.

With the latest project, Alpha Data handled the implementation of the Microsoft System Center software suite and also configured the existing Exchange cluster. It also helped UPP meet other essential requirements like the creation of a security patch program for desktops and servers; virtualization; and the integration of services desk solution with the existing MS infrastructure. Experts from Alpha Data also trained UPP staff on how to operate the new infrastructure. The company successfully completed the project within two months.

UPP reported working on an improved and secured infrastructure following the implementation of the new system. The changes resulted in centralized management of its IT infrastructure, increased server utilization, and dynamic resource optimization across multiple virtualization platforms, among others. The new platform further improved the company’s operations that accelerated and enhanced its services.

Farid Abou El-Fetouh, Services Manager, Alpha Data, said: “We are committed to providing the best IT solutions to our clients to help them further improve their processes and systems. We enjoy long-term partnerships with top companies across various sectors because of our dedication to quality and our passion to bring them cutting-edge services as reflected in the renewal of our contract with UPP. We are grateful to UPP for choosing us the second time and trusting us to implement the changes they needed. We remain steadfast on providing only the best IT solutions delivered with the highest level of professionalism.”

Tarek Metwally El Sayed, IT Section Head, United Printing Press, said: “We were highly satisfied with the services Alpha Data had done for us during our first project together in 2013. We chose them again because it is the only company that can fulfill our needs and expectations. Alpha Data also has the capability to cover all the required solution components of UPP. We remain confident in Alpha Data’s ability to deliver the best services and we look forward to doing more projects with them in the future.”
