Husam Dajani, the senior vice president of Oracle Middle East and Africa, has a wealth of experience when it comes to attending GITEX Technology Week. "I've attended all the GITEX shows since the very beginning," he says, adding, "After 20, you just stop counting."

"From a small show all those years ago GITEX has become comparable to the major international events. However, it is still focused on the Middle East with the majority of visitors coming from the Gulf, which is a great thing as it encourages regional industry development," he states.

Dajani has been with Oracle for almost two decades, during which time he has established it in a number of countries across the region.

Under his leadership, Oracle has become one of the leading providers of technology and business solutions in the Middle East.

Dajani started his career with ADNOC, and prior to joining Oracle he established a number of start-up companies. He was the managing director of one of these organisations - UAE-based integrator Itqan for three years. OracleWorld is now a regular fixture at GITEX Technology Week, with the software giant teaming up with its partners to display a wide range of solutions.

Visitors to this year's exhibition will once again see Oracle put out the largest single presence of any vendor at GITEX Business Solutions, a position it seems to take great pride in holding. As well as the partners it hosts on the stand, Oracle also needs the space to show off its latest acquisitions. Following on from its major purchases of recent years, Oracle has remained in the market for heavy hitters - its multi-billion dollar acquisition of business intelligence and business performance management player Hyperion is the latest big buy.

Specialist teams will be on hand from Oracle's various vertical divisions to demonstrate the latest technology and visitors will be able to see ‘hands-on' demonstrations of the latest solutions. Visitors will get the chance to learn more about the products and services provided by Oracle's partners, with more than 40 having confirmed their presence.

Oracle's big release this year will be its ‘11g' database, the latest version of its wildly successful core offering. Dajani and his team will be making the most of the show to promote this, as well as the rest of Oracle's integrated range of enterprise solutions.

Dajani has an MS degree in management from Purdue University and an MBA from ESC Rouen. He also attended an advanced executive programme at the Amos Tuck School of Business.
