Sahm Technologies is using Gitex as a springboard for introducing the company to regional enterprises and customers. Sahm, which is a fully owned subsidiary of EMAAR Properties, was only officially launched on the 8th of October this year, but decided to capitalise on the exhibition and showcase its range of communications and networking solutions.

According to Arvind Bhatnagar, chief executive officer of Sahm Technologies, visitors to its stand in Hall 7 will be treated to a “vision of an intelligent city,” which incorporates a communications layer delivering television channels, video-on-demand and internet services.

“We are driven by the belief that technology is more than what makes machines run and Sahm will endeavour to make life easier and more enjoyable with real technology that offers real benefits,” he continues.

To support its vision of hi-tech homes and smart cities, Sahm has teamed up with Marconi, iOM and Cap Gemini-Ernst & Young. While Marconi is demonstrating its range of networking solutions, Ernst & Young is offering showgoers advice and consultations in relation to their IT infrastructures.

Sahm has rapid expansion plans for the regional market and has already completed a project with Dubai Bank, deploying a data and call centre solution. Sahm will also be responsible for rolling out services to 30,000 EMAAR tenants.

“Apart from working closely with EMAAR group companies to deploy advanced IT and networking solutions, Sahm Technologies also plans to market its value added services to businesses across various sectors in the region. During Gitex we hope to be able to reach out to local and regional businesses and communicate our diverse range of services — from hi-tech home communications to sophisticated, corporate IT solutions and consulting,” says Bhatnagar.

As such, Bhatnagar expects the company’s staff to double from 40 employees to 80 in the next couple of months, and he is already predicting a return to Gitex next year with a stand “double the size of this year’s.”
