WebMethods has expanded its customer support in Middle East and North Africa (MENA) by opening a regional headquarters in Bahrain. The business integration and optimisation software provider from the USA gained its first customers in the region more than four years ago and has since enjoyed particular success in the telecoms, financial services and energy sectors, with customers including Saudi Aramco, Saudi British Bank, Saudi Telecom and Mobinil. “What’s clear is that this region serves as a crossroads for many components of the global economy,” said Martyn Eley, senior VP and general manager EMEA at WebMethods. “Due to the vital role that these enterprises often play in global value chains, there is also widespread recognition of the need to embrace best-in-class strategies and technologies for business process integration with service-oriented architecture being viewed as a key driver for these efforts. “Our increased commitment to the region, coupled with our long-term industry leadership, helps to ensure that we remain a key partner for addressing these requirements throughout the Middle East and North Africa,” he added. Paul Hammond, WebMethods general manager MENA, said: “Customers benefit greatly from a local base due to the direct vendor touch and localised expertise that it can provide. “We’re excited to address this need with the opening of our regional headquarters in the Kingdom of Bahrain,” Hammond explained. “Building upon the important relationships that we already enjoy with many of the region’s most prominent systems integrators, this increased commitment positions us for growth in the region.”
