Egypt-based Raya Corporation is celebrating bagging the award for fastest growing partner in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region from network computing solutions vendor Sun Microsystems. The award comes as recognition of Raya’s successful implementations in the Egyptian market, which has grown at impressive rates in recent years. “Over the years, Sun Microsystems’ operations in the Middle East have been growing by leaps and bounds and the Egyptian market has been highly responsive to this regional growth. This growth has been aided by our Egyptian partners’ vast experience and continued efforts, especially Raya Corporation, which was recognised as the fastest growing partner in MENA,” said Yasser Hassan, operations director, Egypt and the Levant at Sun Microsystems. “This award can herald the beginning of a promising new partnership between Sun and Raya especially since past experience has proved to be successful. Raya has been focused on implementing solutions-based projects and applications, which complements our business strategy as well. Sun is committed to increasing its operations and presence in the Egyptian market by expanding its base of developers working on Sun operating platforms and Java systems, as the country has the largest number of developers working on Sun operating platforms in the region,” Hassan added. Ashraf Sabry, vice chairman and CEO for IT at Raya, commented: “I am glad that Raya has won the “Fastest Growing Partner in MENA” award, which will be a valuable addition to Raya’s list of accomplishments. Raya’s commitment to offering best-of-breed services and our efforts to keep pace with the latest technological advancements are the secrets behind our strong and successful partnership with global leading information technology solution providers.” Raya has emerged as a strong regional player in the IT and telecommunications market and now has a headcount of more than 2,300 employees. Headquartered in Egypt, Raya also has branches in Saudi Arabia, Algeria, the USA, the UAE as well as a series of partners that it works alongside in other countries.
