Link Development unveils cloud solution
Dubai, October 11, 2011
Link Development, a leading IT solutions and services providers in the region and an OTVentures company, launched its innovative IT-as-a-Service solutions at the Gitex expo in Dubai.
The Microsoft-based private cloud solutions that offers IT-as-a-Service will make it easier for businesses in the region to move into a cutting-edge cloud computing environment, taking their IT capabilities to a higher level easily, quickly and cost-effectively, said the company in a statement.
In today's economy, both government departments and private companies are under a tremendous amount of pressure to reduce costs without sacrificing the level of quality and services provided by their IT departments, it added.
A recent survey found that overall technology spending has fallen drastically over the last year and IT spending is expected to continue to decline.
With pressure on chief technology officers (CTOs) to cut IT budgets, many organizations started considering IT-as-a-Service, which has proven to cut costs and transforms IT from a cost center to a center of strategic value as it becomes more aligned with the business and provides advantages such as operational efficiency, competitiveness and rapid response, said a senior official.
“Using IT-as-a-Service allows companies to focus on running their business, rather than worrying about supporting their IT needs internally," explained Irini Rafaat, Link Development general manager.
It provides around-the-clock monitoring and management. Vacations, illness and even off-hours coverage of IT staff do not adversely impact their technology infrastructure or support levels,” she added.-TradeArabia News Service
