BEA expands operations in Middle East
Provider of end-to-end e-business infrastructure solutions BEA announced plans for regional expansion that include the acquisition of new independent software vendors as partners, as well as an increase to its existing customer base within the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
BEA outlined its future direction for the Emirates as being the education and promotion of Web services as the application standard for communication among enterprises. "BEA recognizes that the UAE—specifically Dubai with its emphasis on e-government—has become the de facto Information Technology (IT) hub of the Middle East region, and we want to contribute to this growth in the IT space," said Diyaa Zebian, business development manager.
"With Dubai's large assembly of independent software vendors and progressive business organizations, BEA believes that a focus on making e-business easy and accessible for everyone is of increasing importance to the country's economy. BEA intends to work with partners and customers to make this e-business vision a reality in the Emirates," added Zebian, according to a company press release.
BEA partners in the UAE include: Bahwan-Cybertek, CGI, Cosmos Software, Ducont.com, Emirates Computers, Future Technology, MDS, and Servion. BEA customers include: Cashswitch, Emirates Bank International, Etisalat Telecommunications Corporation, ITCC, and National Bank of Abu Dhabi.

64-bit Intel architecture," said Scott Dietzen, chief technology officer of BEA Systems.
