STME, the Middle East’s leading provider of integrated storage solutions, has announced that it developed a long-term storage strategy for the Jeddah Chamber of Commerce and Industry (JCCI) in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Based on the STME storage solution, the investment provides JCCI with the facilities to store, retrieve, manage, protect and share all organizational information, moving the Chamber toward its ultimate goal of a ‘paperless’ work environment.
Since its establishment in 1946, JCCI has represented the interests of industrial and commercial businesses with regard to governmental authorities and remains committed to protecting and developing new opportunities for its membership. By deploying the STME enterprise storage solution, JCCI plans to achieve significant operational benefits by automating the backup, recovery, and protection of data on its members, research libraries, training courses, upcoming exhibitions and conferences, and related Chamber initiatives.
“Increasing the accessibility and availability of information is vital to advancing a number of JCCI’s objectives, which range from increasing our percentage of ‘small and medium-sized business’ or SMB members, to reducing the administration required by our growing amount of commercial data. The STME storage solution provided offers our organization all the advanced functionality and connectivity required for the JCCI’s growing networked storage environment, at a competitive investment level,” said Eng. Mohi El-Din Hakami, director of information & e-services, Jeddah Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
“The company’s in-country resources, and particularly its increasing focus on the Jeddah market, made STME our choice when deciding on a storage solutions provider. We believe that STME’s extensive Middle East industry experience, technical expertise, and service are unparalleled,” he added.
STME has reported that Jeddah is among the Gulf’s fastest-developing markets for storage solutions for both enterprises and the SMB sector. In addition to the JCCI project, the company has recently witnessed a surge in demand from Jeddah’s public sector as well as the retail, insurance, and general trading industries.
“To support the range of diverse services that JCCI offers its members, commercial information is now easier to access by both staff and member companies, and is better protected from system outages. JCCI’s storage deployment and its desire to reduce paper-based administration reflects the growing awareness among Saudi-based organizations around the need for automated data management processes, and the cost and time savings involved,” commented Andrew Calthorpe, senior corporate vice president, STME.
