Microsoft Gold partner Mazik Global, together with Microsoft, has announced the launch of MazikCARE and MazikED, hospital management and higher education solutions based on Microsoft Dynamics AX.

At a time when the healthcare sector in the GCC is expected to grow at an annual rate of 11% to $43.9bn until 2015, and the number of school students has increased by 40% over the past five years in Dubai alone, Microsoft agues that technology is playing a major role in facilitating the growth, particularly in the UAE. 

Built on the Microsoft Dynamics AX platform, MazikCARE is a solution that encompasses both the provider and the consumer to help achieve goals such as better patient care and more effective financial management.  The solution delivers functionalities like patient management, medical billing, collaborative care and business intelligence.

The MazikED solution encompasses both the student and the educational body to achieve similar goals such as better educational management and more effective financial practices.  It facilitates student recruitment and management, and provides scalable tools for the student's career and the life of the educational institution, according to Microsoft.  

"At Microsoft we're committed to supporting the UAE's 2021 vision and the development of the healthcare and education sectors, which are key focus areas for the UAE. These new Dynamics solutions are just an example of how technology can impact the lives of everyone within the community positively," said Karim Talhouk, Microsoft business solutions lead at Microsoft Gulf. 

"Our partnership with Mazik Global spans more than a decade and the company's experts were integral in the development of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012. We're certain that Microsoft technology will continue to support the growth of key sectors such as healthcare and education with the help of our valued partners.  

"Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 is a new generation of business applications for Enterprises. With more than 1,000 new features and enhancements across core enterprise resource planning (ERP) and industry capabilities, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 will help provide more business value faster, enable agility and insight in your organisation, and help drive faster adoption, broader usage, and easier maintenance and upgrade through a continued emphasis on simplicity," said Talhouk.

"Mazik Global has been capitalising on its strong product development background, investing heavily in the development of state-of-the-art Hospital Management [MazikCARE] and Higher Education [MazikED] solutions on Microsoft Dynamics AX over the past two years," said Sid Siddiqui, president of Mazik Global.

"Both these verticals are monolithic solutions on the AX platform and were officially launched during Microsoft's World Partner Conference this year. We're confident that customers in the Middle East will be able to benefit from those solutions, particularly in light of the importance being placed on both the healthcare and education sectors and their expected growth over the coming few years,' he continued.

Dubai is recognized for its vision to create knowledge-based economy. I am highly impressed by the initiative of Dubai govt to support students by announcing higher education grants. Though people are quite well-off in Dubai but it’s a motivation for students to take higher studies more seriously
