opportunities as Digital Transformation fuels IT spending in the Middle East and Africa .

“ We have seen a growing trend in mergers and divestments as a result of the changing business dynamics brought about by the pandemic . Our data on migration project types in Americas and Europe have shown that this leads to increased activity and the trend is only growing . This will be a regular scenario soon in the Middle East as migrations do not stop after clients have been moved to the cloud ,” said Antti Ålander , Channel Manager – EMEA , BitTitan .
