There is a significant growth in E-Commerce, Banking and every industry that touches Mobile in the Middle East region. The reason is quite clear: Mobile penetration increased 228% in UAE in 2017 with an increase of more than 132,000 new subscriptions in March compared to February. Furthermore, GDP growth in GCC countries is forecasted at +2.3% in 2017 so we can say the Middle East, and in particular the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, are currently a region to pay attention.
Inomera (partner company of Netmera) is expanding in GCC countries by increasing its activities and services in this region. We are increasing our investments to work with companies in the Middle East and support their mobile channels. Starting with opening an office in Dubai, we are increasing our existence with new collaborations. Inomera has now partnered with Lineris in order to build Turkey’s Largest SAP Hybris Expertise Center. We are also leveraging our cooperations with other customers in this region such as Sarmady (a Vodafone Company) and Yellow Pages.
We have also attended GITEX Technology Week, 2017 with other tech pioneers and futurists, business leaders and IT professionals, held in Dubai – the world’s fastest growing technology hub. We have met our existing Telco, E-Commerce, Media and Retail customers and our Mobile Engagement Platform Netmera has drawn a significant interest among many industries, especially Telecom Operators. We have also received numerous partnership requests from regional companies and agencies, which also assures Netmera and other Inomera solutions can support companies in the region.
