DTK eyes Africa growth
Company uses GITEX as launchpad for range of new solutions
DTK is using GITEX TECHNOLOGY WEEK as a launch pad for a range of new solutions, including its Swift brand tablets, Ultra 1 Ultrabooks and accessories.
The PC hardware specialist, which has been in operation since 1979, is also building relationships to target expansion into Africa.
Nimer Al-Attal, Managing Director of the company, says: “In this GITEX, we have had good interest from African companies, and we hope to develop business there. We are looking for resellers for our tablets, and VADs and SIs for our desktop and notebooks.”
DTK is also developing solutions for key verticals including hospitality and education. The company is set to release tablets for private schools, that will come with learning applications for the US curriculum. DTK is also in discussions about developing solutions for the public school sector, and plans to invest further in education.
The company is developing a number of professional solutions as well as consumer tablets, and expects to have Windows 8 tablets in the market by Q1 of next year, which Al-Attal says should have good uptake by businesses who want a mobile platform for Microsoft-based applications.
