Azizi Developments Implements Open-source Software
Azizi Developments, a leading private developer in the UAE, is implementing open-source software in line with its SARSMUP (Security, Agility, Reliability, Scalability, Mistake-Proofing, User-Friendliness, Performance, Interoperability) perspectives of Software Acquisition, while also optimising the cost for its IT domains up to 90 per cent.
While open-source solutions are not completely free of charge, they are outstandingly powerful tools for developers such as Azizi Developments to gain technological efficiencies, fix bugs, improve functions, and adapt assorted software to suit different requirements and needs. Azizi’s implementation is scheduled for completion by June 2021.
Azizi Developments’ digital transformation journey has its customer’s best interests at heart – the developer aims to continuously lower operational costs to make its properties more affordable and secure its investors higher ROIs. Through new and improved technologies, the developer is enhancing its customer journeys, with a special focus on increased ease of transactions and more seamless and convenient customer service.
Dr. Syed Mahsud Ali, Chief Information Officer at Azizi Developments, said: “Businesses are constantly searching for digital solutions to help them run more efficiently and realise more substantial profits faster. Open-source software is developed in a decentralised manner, relying on peer reviews and community production. It is often more cost effective, more flexible, and has more longevity than its proprietary peers because it is developed by entire communities rather than isolated teams. Open-source solutions will help us keep track of the processes and enable us to make sure that everything done is well within scope and budget.”
“The usage of open-source software entails paying only for features that we use, instead of having to spend on packages with dozens of built-in ones that are never even required or made use of. We will be able to migrate in 4.5 hours at night-time without any data damage or the potential of any cybersecurity breaches”, he continued.
Although the foundation stones of the present-day Azizi Group were laid in 1989, it was in 2007 when the towering presence of Azizi Developments first began to take shape. Mirwais Azizi was driven to design homes and communities inspired by modern urban living. But at the heart, it was about giving back to a city that had offered him and his family a place of peace and security. He set a vision for the future without losing sight of the past, ensuring he stays within client budgets, but goes beyond the norm to create the best possible living experience for people. Today, Azizi Developments reflects the aspirations of a wide spectrum of lifestyle seekers. This means a permanent dedication to understanding and meeting clients' aspirations, developing distinctive homes that set the standard in contemporary building design and offering an unparalleled level of customer service. It's about unlocking a new lifestyle for the curious and ambitious, setting the ideal platform to live, work and play – and building communities that bring people closer.
