IDC - A Cloud-First Approach for a Value-Driven DX Strategy for the Middle East Region

Thank you for your interest. The {{resourceType}} is now [[ready for download]]

According to IDC, the current pandemic situation has revealed that organizations that invest in digital transformation (DX) and cloud solutions are better placed to respond to these unprecedented times. Middle East and North Africa (MENA) organizations that do not invest in cloud solutions are expected to suffer greater operational risks, even though they may have put off such investments due to security concerns.


  • Global enterprises in the region are stronger than local organizations as they follow global best practices and have already invested in DX 
  • Middle East organizations are adopting new business models that are increasing agility and efficiency, driving growth, and creating superior customer experiences 
  • Enterprises are adopting a hybrid multicloud strategy to strike a balance between control, specialization, security, agility, elasticity, and scalability
As enterprises invest in DX initiatives to take advantage of important technological advances, one fact is becoming clear: DX requires network transformation as well. Network infrastructure provides connectivity across all components of an enterprise, enables internal and external users to connect to the cloud, and is a central place to monitor and secure operations.
