French content management expert Siatel has high hopes for its presence at GITEX Technology Week in 2009, following a successful showing at the event last year.

“Our 2008 attendance at GITEX allowed us to find a number of partners in the region, and those partnerships are now really blossoming,” says Jean-Pierre La Hausse de Lalouvière, International Sales Director for Siatel.

“Our full content management system – which is a full Arabic-language solution – is definitely improving, and we are one of only a very few IT companies that can deliver this solution,” he adds.

Siatel signed a partnership with US firm StreamServe, a leader in output management solutions, just before GITEX last year. The deal means that StreamServe’s clients in the Middle East can now opt to use Siatel’s Gargantua software for some applications.

Also present on the Siatel stand is DataStream, the company’s Qatar-based partner, which provides ICT solutions including electronic archiving and workflow solutions, as well as security and medical systems. The latest release of Gargantua 7, a collaborative content management solution (CMS), includes a complete CMS with archiving, DMS, workflow/BPM and portal functionalities all integrated into one product.

“One of my main aims for GITEX this year is to find a major integrated distributor in Dubai and Abu Dhabi,” adds La Hausse de Lalouvière. “Since our solution is designed for large entities such as banks, we need a recognised and important reseller in the local area.”

Proof of the importance that Siatel is placing in the region is evident in the firm’s decision to employ a salesperson here. “Our salesperson will be based in either Abu Dhabi or Saudi Arabia, and should be in place in the next three to six months. We’ve invested a lot in this market and have a lot of faith in it,” La Hausse de Lalouvière indicates.
