Digiba opens in DIC
Canadian hosting and services company Digiba has opened its regional office in Dubai, and hope to gather momentum rapidly
Canada-based Internet services company Digiba is making a push into Dubai with the official opening of office at Dubai Internet City.
The company, which has offices in Vancouver, Seattle and now Dubai, offers a range of online services including Internet telephony and CRM.
“We’ve been watching the market in Dubai for years,” said Amir Shahbazian, president and CEO of the local operation. “It’s still very immature, but there will be a lot of growth.”
The advance force numbers only three staff; most development and integration work will be done by the company’s 45-strong team in Canada, but Shahbazian plans to grow that quickly as the company signs up clients. Having done work for the Canadian government and high-profile business clients, Digiba prides itself on the stability and security of its services, he says, indicating service provides such as Etisalat and local government as ideal early targets.
To fuel growth locally, the company is becoming involved in the formation of local user groups, starting with Cold Fusion and Java groups (with the blessing of Sun Microsystems). Shahbazian says Digiba is platform-agnostic, offering services on a variety of platforms and database back-ends, as well as readily extending its core products with modules tailored to customer’s precise requirements.
