Dear Editor,

As a long term Dubai resident and IT manager I was excited to read that another major international company — ABN Amro — is to open a processing centre in the Dubai Outsource Zone.

I truly believe that the presence of such companies in the Emirate will give a big boost to the local IT sector.

These companies will bring to Dubai the years of experience and expertise they have in developing complex and sophisticated IT systems and will raise the bar here in terms of technology adoption and innovation.

Hopefully their methods will be emulated by local companies, which historically have lagged behind when it comes to deploying the latest technology.

Let's hope these international players will share with us the secrets of their success and work with other firms here in the region to develop it.

What we don’t want to see is them just “cherry-picking” the best of what the region has to offer.

IT project manager of local firm,

Dubai, UAE.
