According to the survey, the IT market, which stayed at marginally below the level of AED10 billion mark in 2015, is pegged to touch the whopping figure of AED19.2 billion in 2019.
The sector’s exceptional robustness will be driven by a growing interest of various IT giants in setting up their operations in the region, increasing modernisations of business operations and introduction of sophisticated enterprise keys. Internet of Things (IoT) solutions will lead the way for the industry, which will see an inclusive growth in software and IT services sales, indicates the report.
To capture the significant market share and make most out of the ongoing IT boom, UAE companies are equipping them with the best of the technology to serve their clients up to the optimum level in these regions. Special emphasis is being put on being flexible enough to meet
the ever-changing demands of customers.
