Slow growth in spending on Systems Integration not reflected in UAE
System Integration (SI) services are the single largest IT services category in the Middle East, with local firms spending around $38.9 million on system integration services, reported IDC in a recent study.
"UAE IT users have been receptive to contracting out the implementation (integration) tasks, while actually running the system with their own resources. As a result, the SI share of total IT services expenditure is relatively high" comments Senior Analyst with IDC Middle East & North Africa, Torben Pedersen in a recent report.
"Over the next five years, IDC expects spending on system integration services in the UAE to grow at a much faster rate than the worldwide systems integration services market. IDC's studies show that growth in this segment will reach a CAGR of 9.6 percent through 2006" continued Pedersen. — (menareport.com)
