STME is jumping into the enterprise storage services void at this year’s Gitex. From its stand in hall five, the enterprise storage player will highlight key points that companies need to know about the assessment, design, integration, implementation, support and training aspects of a complete storage solution.

“The Middle East’s storage market is becoming increasingly crowded with new vendors and competing solutions, causing businesses to search for straightforward advice. Organisations are learning that in order to protect their vital information assets, they need more than just hardware and software — they also require certified experts to assess, design and implement an appropriate solution, and back it up with support and training in order to fully maximise the companies’ storage investment,” comments Ancel Fernandes, STME’s executive vice president, marketing & audit.

STME is also planning to offer a number of sessions on the business considerations behind enterprise storage. The systems integrator promises that attendees will learn what to consider business-wise before investing in enterprise storage, including how much vital data an organisation can lose during unplanned downtime and how long their business can function without important data.

“Professional services are the ‘hidden’ but crucial aspect of any successful enterprise storage project, as companies need to integrate storage into their existing IT infrastructure, learn how to utilise the benefits of their solution, and have a reliable support provider on the ground. No other storage provider at Gitex is better qualified to advise exhibition attendees on how to create a reliable, business focused storage strategy,” claims Fernandes.

STME is also promising to deliver certain front line data disaster scenarios to visitors at the stand. “We won’t mention any company names, but STME’s presentations will demonstrate how decision-makers from key industries throughout the region are tackling real storage challenges and deriving competitive advantage,” adds Fernandes.
