BitTitan finds rising cloud migration in Middle East North and Africa

Cloud Technology

BitTitan sees excellent growth opportunities as digital transformation fuels IT spending in the Middle East and Africa. Also finds increasing cloud migration for the more accessible and automated experience.

According to Gartner, the Middle East and North Africa data center market, which includes cloud services, will reach $5.4 billion in 2022, owing to digital transformation initiatives and increased internet usage across the area. Furthermore, technology experts predict that rising demand for higher-performance networks, better management efficiency, and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic will influence projected investment growth in data center projects.

“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 the 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.

Further said, “When corporations, non-profit organizations and government entities merge or divest, migrations happen between cloud tenants. In addition, as Microsoft 365 adoption in Middle East constantly increases, the cloud tenant-to-tenant migrations increase inevitably.”

Companies migrating to the cloud will have an easier, faster, and more automated experience from scoping the present environment to configuring end-users after the data migration. According to Antti, the majority of the cloud migration effort would involve email and OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online and Microsoft Teams.

“Utilizing one of the automated solutions powered by Voleer partners can scope and quote the projects without ever entering to the client tenant as an administrator. Even the client IT can do it themselves if a partner is not granted access in the quoting phase,” explained Antti.

Looking beyond 2021, BitTitan predicts even more use cases for Microsoft Teams will become the norm for businesses and organizations using Microsoft 365. “Think about how COVID-19 made Microsoft Teams a standard in delivering teaching and learning experiences in the education sector, for example. It has become the new standard interface for a majority of businesses. We will no doubt see all possible workloads integrated there. That is also where BitTitan is developing our migration capabilities non-stop,” Antti ended.

Despite the predicted increase in cloud migration, major issues such as a lack of assistance during critical migration times, finding a tool for each project separately, and spending significant amounts of time preparing and executing projects persist.

BitTitan, through its regional distribution partner Logicom, is attending GITEX Technology Week in Dubai this week to present its flagship products geared at making the life of providers and system integrators of modern workplace-focused services easier.

BitTitan will be showcasing two products during the event, one of which is MigrationWiz. The industry-leading SaaS solution for mailbox, document, public-folder and Microsoft Teams migrations can help users improve their Microsoft 365 onboarding experience by providing fully automated data migration from all common source systems, configuring and completing migrations faster and easier, and with greater control and visibility.

BitTitan will introduce Voleer, a solution that centralizes and automates IT tasks, helping IT service professionals streamline daily operations and eliminate redundancies, to help prepare for a new business environment where divestitures, acquisitions, and mergers require Microsoft 365 tenant-to-tenant migrations.

During GITEX, BitTitanis presenting further details of its industry-leading solutions at the Logicom stand in Hall 3, F1 at Dubai World Trade Centre.
