Business intelligence vendor Systems Union plans to double its Middle Eastern operations in 2006, looking to take advantage of expanding UAE and Saudi Arabian markets. Martin Kaczmarek, general manager of Systems Union Middle East, says, “After two years of solid growth, we are about to initiate major investment for expansion during 2006. We are already on a recruitment drive that will see the number of employees at our Dubai offices double during the year. “The rapidly growing UAE market will provide the largest contribution to our growth, while we expect the Saudi Arabian market also to deliver good results with the introduction of Arabic versions of some of our product range.” Kaczmarek says he expects the firm’s key industries, including oil and gas, hospitality, and finance, to perform well over the coming year in the Middle East. 2005 saw the company complete its second full year in the region. Systems Union has had other success recently, following its inclusion for the first time in Gartner’s magic quadrant for corporate performance management (CPM) suites. This report shows how CPM vendors compare relative to their “ability to execute” and their “completeness of vision”. The Gartner report says of the company: “Systems Union has leveraged its global infrastructure to win customers in the Americas and Asia/Pacific, and is gaining an increasing number of multicomponent deals, thus warranting its inclusion in the magic quadrant for the first time. “Systems Union has built integration with its underlying financial applications (SunSystems), enabling it to sell to current customers and non-SunSystems customers.”
