Muscat: Middle East organisations will drive new digital business models by leveraging the $400 million growth in data storage to 2025, industry experts announced on Monday.

The Middle East’s storage market will grow by 14 per cent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from $1.5 billion in 2014 to 2025, according to a recent report by Future Market Insights.

Supporting digital economy business models, the United Arab Emirates’ (UAE’s) leading information management consultancy Condo Protego announced today that it has been accorded an exclusive Platinum Partner status by the newly-formed tech giant Dell EMC. Condo Protego will also continue to be a Direct Dell EMC partner and will continue to procure directly from Dell EMC for its customers.

"Business in the Middle East faces increasing urgency to embrace digital transformation in order to stay competitive and viable. With a wider range of Dell EMC solutions, Condo Protego is committed to further supporting the Middle East’s digital transformation and economic growth,” said Andrew Calthorpe, chief executive officer of Condo Protego.

Demonstrating strong opportunities, more than 40 per cent of Middle East organisations are digitally ready, while 55 percent are driving digital skills, according to a recent survey conducted by Vanson Bourne for Dell EMC.

Middle East organisations are posting strong demand for Dell EMC’s converged, hyper-converged, and all-flash storage solutions; especially in verticals, such as government and the public sector, banking, finance, hospitality and tourism.

“Dell EMC Platinum Partnership statusis a testament to Condo Protego's technical expertise in industry-leading Dell EMC technologies and the continued trust from hundreds of our enterprise customers in the UAE, which include some of the largest datacentres in the UAE," added Calthorpe.
