Comtrust and Oracle have joined forces to try to bring down companies’ IT costs. The two have signed an agreement whereby Oracle will try to encourage its customers to deploy software at Comtrust’s secure data rather on their own in-house servers. Ahmad Abdul Karim Julfar, general manager (designate), Comtrust and Husam Dajani, VP, Oracle Middle East said companies would save considerable costs by working with Comtrust.

“Companies in the region rely on Oracle for their information management needs and to run business applications and web portals,” said Julfar. “With this expertise and our local experience, the partnership will help us continue to deliver commercially attractive solutions to businesses in the region.”

Dajani told Gitex Times that a pricing model has been developed that makes it easy for companies to understand how much they are saving. Charges are based on a percentage fee of the customer’s Oracle software licensing costs.

“It’s a simple pricing structure so companies can compare the cost of hosting in-house with outsourcing,” explained Dajani. “This initiative between Oracle and Comtrust is designed to provide our customers in the region with the resources to outsource their enterprise-wide IT solutions and applications, whilst maintaining complete control over their decision making and IT strategy.”

Comtrust operates data hosting facilities in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The centres are equipped with high level security, both digital and physical.
