Khaled AlShami, VP of Solution Consulting at Infor, Details the Company’s Distinctive Approach in Navigating the MENA Digital Landscape”
As the global demand for enterprise software experiences a surge in the wake of the growing digital economy, Infor, a prominent player in the industry, is strategically positioning itself in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. With a presence in MENA for over a decade, Infor, a global enterprise software company, aims to leverage the burgeoning enterprise software market, set to reach $8.74 billion in spending for 2022 in the region, according to Statista.
Khaled AlShami, Vice President of Solution Consulting at Infor, identifies five key differentiators that set the company apart in this competitive landscape. Firstly, Infor offers industry-specific solutions, delivering unparalleled uptime availability and performance to its customers. The company’s strong partnership with Amazon Web Services enhances the overall customer experience.
Secondly, Infor focuses on reducing the time-to-value ratio, swiftly delivering cutting-edge technologies and industry-specific capabilities to its customers through efficient methodologies and protocols. The third factor lies in Infor’s ownership structure, being fully owned by Koch Industries, a corporate giant with $130 billion in revenue. This ensures the trust and scalability required by customers, coupled with the agility to provide personalized services and respond promptly to their needs.
Lastly, Infor’s clear go-to-market strategy in the MENA region stands out, particularly in industrial manufacturing and distribution businesses. Aligning with the UAE government’s ambitions for industrial sector development, Infor aims to contribute to raising the national GDP.
Khaled AlShami sees vast potential in the region, extending beyond industrials. With Dubai emerging as a digital hub and Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 driving opportunities, he emphasizes the company’s commitment to being a strategic partner in the region’s journey towards digital transformation and growth.
