MDS UAE has acquired managed services company, eHosting DataFort, from Tecom Investments to offer its customers an enhanced portfolio of solutions.
“eHosting DataFort will be able to help us in providing hybrid solutions to our customers. We can build and host private and public cloud; and simultaneously we can continue doing on-premise installation and implementation for our customers. And this is within our role as a SI, we don’t want to be a co-location only or just hosting, we want to have a full IT service provider capabilities along with systems integration,” Sami Abi Esber, President, Board Member, Midis Group.
Over the next couple of months, the SI will integrate the newly acquired business to provide complete hybrid solutions to the customers seamlessly.
“Managed services is an important avenue of growth for systems integrators. Some of our customers prefer someone to take over the IT infrastructure and manage it, so that they can focus more and more on the core business. They outsource all the IT infrastructure and this is what we are doing now through eHosting DataFort – we are managing the hardware, storage, managing the full IT infrastructure for many of our customers,” he explains.
MDS Gulf has entities in UAE, Qatar, Oman and it has most recently opened up office in Kuwait two months ago.
