MEEZA launches SaaS solutions for GCC
MEEZA aims to bring the benefits of SaaS to SMBs in the region, says Fanella.

Managed services provider MEEZA has announced two new Software-as-a-Service solutions aimed at SMBs in the Gulf region.

The company is offering services for Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft SharePoint, which it says allow small and medium businesses access to the latest software without the need to invest in the IT infrastructure required to buy, operate and maintain this software. The solutions are available with a predictable monthly cost model and minimal up-front investment, as well as being quick to implement and highly configurable to individual needs. Businesses also gain access to a highly secure and available hosting environment.

The services are the first SaaS offering from MEEZA, and the company says it plans to add ERP and CRM solutions in the near future.

MEEZA has also announced that it is looking for value add reseller partners (VARs) to sell the services across the region.

James Fanella, acting CEO of MEEZA said: "Our Software-as-a-Service products are ready for delivery now and provide MEEZA with instant access to lucrative markets including UAE and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. MEEZA is proud to be helping to ensure that SMB's across the region can take advantage of the many benefits of SaaS."

The company is in the process of building two new Tier 3 data centres in Qatar to support its services, including one which will be over seven and half times the size of MEEZA's current data centre. The new data centres are due for completion by 2011.
