eHosting DataFort Focuses on Value of ‘Managed Services’

eHosting DataFort, the region’s leading Managed IT and Advisory services provider and a member of TECOM Investments, today announced it will highlight the value provided by managed services at the Infrastructure Strategies Executive Forum 2010 in Dubai.

To be held on 6 October at the Madinat Jumeirah, the specialized one-day event on IT infrastructure will witness Zeineldin’s presentation focusing on the high adoption of managed services in the region, challenges faced by end-users and the long term benefits of Managed Services.

Zeineldin said: “A major driver in choosing to outsource IT infrastructure is the need to find a business model that works in a climate that is unpredictable. As an example, more and more organisations today are looking to have their IT operations managed by a third party rather than investing in IT equipment of their own. This enables them to adapt to a volatile economic environment and capitalise on a service provider that offers skilled resources and standardised processes for the efficient delivery of IT operations.

“Companies also turn to IT service providers because of the need to focus on core-business activities. A survey conducted in the region recently revealed that given the increasing complexity of networks, many organisations were open to the idea of having their IT services managed by an external service provider that has skilled manpower and process maturity for IT support and service delivery. An experienced team of qualified resources is key to providing reliable service levels and for optimising the use of latest technologies.”

The Infrastructure Strategies Executive Forum 2010 in Dubai will gather end-users and vendors on a single platform to discuss topics related to data centres, cabling and infrastructure, private cloud computing and virtualization,, security and Intelligent Infrastructure solutions as well as smart planning for new networks and managed services.
