Since its entry to the Saudi market, Software AG never seized from having an active role in the advancement of Saudi Arabia’s IT and digital landscapes in such a manner that copes with and adds to the Kingdom’s socioeconomic progress, for which Software AG has employed top-tier talents to contribute in realizing the nation’s initiatives and around Smart Cities, Enterprise Integration, Industry 4.0 and IoT.”
“Over the past years, the Kingdom has been in a leading position globally through a remarkable digital transformation journey, easing people’s lives, creating competitive digital ecosystems, while not sparing any needed financial resources to fuel this transformation, thus eventually becoming an attractive investment hub for worldwide tech corporations.” Salama added.
