Cisco, GBM to showcase versatility of Apple solutions

DUBAI, October 15, 2016

Cisco, a worldwide technology leader and Gulf Business Machines (GBM) will jointly showcase its solutions built around the Apple enterprise product portfolio at the Gitex Technology Week 2016 in Dubai.

As Cisco's exclusive channel sponsor at the expo, GBM will educate visitors on how Apple's business strategy, consultancy and implementation services can help regional businesses improve mobile productivity, enhance mobile efficiency and be responsive to customer interactions.

“Businesses everywhere and in every category are reinventing themselves. They are becoming digital, software-driven and mobile-centric. Apple and Cisco are responding to this need by creating the very best app and voice experience for iPhone and iPad on corporate networks. With new features in iOS 10 and the latest network software and hardware from Cisco, businesses can leverage their infrastructure to deliver a great user experience,” explained Frida Kleimert, the head of Channel and Commercial Sales, Cisco UAE.

As part of their Gitex plans, Cisco and GBM are focusing on three areas for Apple solutions: networking, voice, and collaboration. The first set of offerings include optimizing Wi-Fi connectivity, prioritizing business apps and integrating voice and collaboration with Cisco Spark.

GBM has been incorporating Apple products into its solutions, with a view to providing large enterprises and corporate customers with integrated mobility solutions.

It can offer products from the Apple enterprise solution that includes the full suite of hardware, software, services and support to bolster the mobility capabilities of organisations. GBM was appointed as the first Apple Authorised Systems Integrator in UAE in May this year.

"In the current environment of relentless transformation around business models and enabling technologies, enterprises want a much broader choice of solutions and platforms, where the mobile customer interface needs to be more versatile and adaptable for business needs," stated Hani Nofal, the vice president, Intelligent Network Solutions, Security and Mobility, GBM.

"This was a key reason why GBM aligned with Apple enterprise solutions and mobility platforms to provide its enterprise customer base, the choice of which mobile platform to build their business models upon," he added.

Kleimert said Cisco has full confidence in the versatility of GBM's enterprise solution architecture and its ability to look down the regional road map and anticipate the platforms that can benefit the current and future enterprise customers.

"As a Cisco Gold Partner, GBM solutions leverage Cisco cloud, data centre, networking, and security technologies to provide the best of breed digital transformation opportunities for customers in the region. We are now entering exciting times and the role of the vendor-partner relationship has never been better, stronger and more dynamic than before," she added.-TradeArabia News Service
