Maham Al-Khaleej Trading Company (MATCO) has announced the opening of its second EMC Velocity Signature Solution Center for Saudi Arabia.

The centre will provide MATCO with a range of facilities to help customers understand the benefits of EMC solutions and to optimize their IT investments.

The Riyadh-based facility will be used for various purposes, including customer briefings; live hardware and software demonstrations and training; proof of concept deployments; migration planning; benchmarking and performance testing and solution development.

The centre will be used to show ‘EMC Prove' solutions, pre-configured solutions that are backed by stringent testing, partner integration, and document implementation methodologies to ensure solutions can be rolled out faster, with less risk of failure.

"We are giving our customers real choice and the best of both worlds - the chance to experience exactly how the Proven solution would work for them based on EMC technology without any capital outlay. Our main objective at MATCO is to provide our customers with the best service levels and ensure they are getting the value of the solutions we offer them," said Toni Prince, general manager, MATCO IT.

 "EMC customers in the Kingdom will now have the ability to experience their planned solution and identify the ROI before making financial commitments.  MATCO is dedicated to its customers' transformation to the Private Cloud which will enable them to meet their business objectives through greater efficiency in virtualized storage, reduced deployment times, increased scalability and agility to deliver mission critical service levels," said Mohamed Talaat, country manager for Saudi at EMC.
