BitTitan sees cloud migration increasing in MENA

BitTitan, a provider of cloud migrations and managed services automation solutions, has announced it sees great growth opportunities as digital transformation fuels IT spending in the Middle East and Africa.

According to Gartner, the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) data centre market, which includes cloud services, will see spending reach US$5.4 billion in 2022, driven by Digital Transformation initiatives across the region as well as growth in Internet penetration. In addition, technology experts believe that projected investment growth in data centre projects is influenced by a growing demand for higher-performance networks, increased management efficiency and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We have seen a growing trend in mergers and divestments as a result of the changing business dynamics brought about by the pandemic. Our data on migration project types in Americas and Europe have shown that this leads to increased activity and the trend is only growing. This will be a regular scenario soon in the Middle East as migrations do not stop after clients have been moved to the cloud,” said Antti Ålander, Channel Manager – EMEA, BitTitan. “When corporations, non-profit organisations and government entities merge or divest, migrations happen between cloud tenants. In addition, as Microsoft 365 adoption in Middle East increases constantly, the cloud tenant-to-tenant migrations increase inevitably.”

Companies migrating to cloud will have an easier, faster and more automated experience, starting from scoping the current environment to configuring end-users after the data migration. According to Antti, most of the migration to cloud activity will not just involve email and OneDrive for businesses, but SharePoint Online and Microsoft Teams will need to be migrated as well.

Leveraging the potential increase in cloud migration activity, BitTitan is participating in GITEX Technology Week 2021 through its regional distribution partner Logicom. The company is showcasing its flagship solutions aimed at making the lives of providers and system integrators of modern workplace-focused services easier.

MigrationWiz is one of two products BitTitan will be showcasing at the event.
