Sun Microsystems Middle East & North Africa, in conjunction with its channel development provider, Tech Access, intends to highlight its growing range of software and Linux solutions at this year’s Gitex Saudi Arabia. A number of the vendor’s key in-country partners will be joining Sun on its stand, where they will talk to long-standing Saudi Arabian customers and other visitors about the strengths and benefits of Sun’s advanced software, Linux, and hardware solutions. Of particular interest to potential customers will be dedicated areas on the stand for industry-specific solutions aimed at sectors such as education, finance, and oil & gas. Executives also predict a strong response from Saudi Arabian companies in the small-and-medium business (SMB) space. “With a long and established reputation as the leading IT provider for Saudi Arabian organisations and corporations, Sun Microsystems will focus on displaying our portfolio depth at the event, as well as reaching out to some of the most important industries in the Kingdom,” says Graham Porter, marketing manager, Sun Microsystems Middle East & North Africa. Among the solutions on display at the Sun stand will be selections from its range of Sun Ray ultra-thin clients, its Arabic-enabled Star Office software, as well as its recently-launched Solaris 10 operating system. In addition, for the first time in the Kingdom, there will be a demonstration of technology from Project Looking Glass, a three-dimensional desktop environment currently being developed by Sun. “Gitex Saudi Arabia is vital to our growth in the Kingdom, allowing us to meet our large customer base under one roof, as well as showcase our latest innovations,” says Porter. “We aim to meet increasing demand from specific verticals, and are committed to address some of the most relevant issues to the region’s businesses,” he adds. Sun has made a number of significant inroads into the Saudi market in recent months, and is focusing its efforts on driving value, efficiency and profitability. Sun plans to address a range of business concerns in presentations to decision-makers who visit its stand, ranging from how to secure data, to how to reduce cost and complexity, and even how companies can manage their enterprises more effectively.
