Systems integrator STME recently announced that it had signed a partnership agreement with SDG Group, a global management consulting company.
The agreement will bring all of SDG’s offerings to STME’s portfolio, including Business Process Reengineering, Corporate Performance Management, Collaborative Business Intelligence and ICT Strategy.
The partnership allows STME to cover areas related to business intelligence, STME said. The systems integrator added that the agreement, coupled with its recent contract with Waysecure, makes it one of the most “well-rounded” IT solutions companies in the region.
STME also said that the Middle East is lacking in the services that SDG Group offers.
“Taking the right strategic decision on time with correct data and detailed analysis is the most critical challenge for all organisations,” said Ayman Al Bayaa, CEO, STME.
“That is why we have decided to go for business intelligence and performance management solutions with a real pioneer – SDG, one of the top global firms offering such solutions.”
For SDG Group, which mainly operates in Europe, the partnership represents an opportunity to push into the MENA region – the firm previously launched in Egypt, but it sees the wider MENA region as strategic.
“Signing up with STME brings us a strong opportunity to both work with a MENA region pioneer, and to expand our value proposition and presence to a huge market and opportunities,” said Fabio Bombana, Senior Partner, SDG Group.
“[The] MENA region has been growing fast in the past years, and we believe that mature organisations are looking to adopt performance management and business analytics solutions to support faster and effective decision making processes.
“The adoption of these practices needs not only capabilities in implementation but an experienced end-to-end approach that combines consulting skills and industry knowledge to deliver the right analytics and support the organisation in the adoption and change management processes.”
