In addition, Microsoft will be present in Hall 7 showcasing cloud and enterprise solutions.

“As we have embraced the cloud, Microsoft continues to be passionate about a vision that keeps computing personal,” says Charbel Fakhoury, regional general manager, Microsoft Gulf. “Even if data does not reside on a PC, the computing experience should continue to be a personal one, ensuring that consumers have choices as to where they put their data, who they share it with, when they give other people access to it.”

He adds: “Our long-term investment and commitment to the cloud and product innovation is helping create new technologies, enhance existing products and services and explore the frontiers of next-generation computing. This year at GITEX we will be showcasing our cloud-based technology and product innovations, both for consumers and businesses. that will be the catalyst for the information age and help drive the development of a knowledge economy.”
