Verdict
Although Jacky’s Business Solutions has only been in the market for just over a year, the SI has managed to post a respectable revenue figure in the first year of business. As part of Jacky’s Group, the SI will benefit from the solid brand that the company has created in the Middle East.

What were the company’s milestones in 2013?
We consolidated the group’s various solution-based B2B businesses under the umbrella of Jacky’s Business Solutions LLC. We were also able to exhibit Stratasys’ 3D printers at GITEX Shopper and GITEX Technology Week.

What are your strategic plans for the rest of 2014?
We plan to increase the focus on apps for latex-based inks in large format printing, especially with the recent revamp of HP’s printer portfolio in this category.

What were the main drivers for your revenue growth in 2013?
For solutions like large format printing, we saw a resurgence in this category with more printing service providers increasing capacity. For the core queuing system business, a lot of growth stemmed from banks as they expanded to open additional branches.

Has the SI sector recovered from the market instability?
Investment and budgets have opened up as the region’s appetite for technology investments grow so opportunities for systems integrators are there.

Where will your business growth come from in 2014?
Our growth will come from large format printing and 3D printing solutions. In terms of verticals, banking and government sector is where we are seeing a lot of activity.
