Sajid Lokhandwala, CIO, Al Khayyat Investments said: “Today customers have access to a gamut of information and demand a highly personalised, seamless experience across every channel. We needed a technology partner who understood this changing market dynamics and had the expertise and solutions to take us to the next level, from the store to the data center to the cloud. Working with Dell Technologies allowed us to become more efficient throughout the retail value chain from collecting and analysing data to improving margins, decreasing costs, and reducing security risks. We are on a transformation journey with an ambitious growth vision and having the right partner offers us a competitive advantage in a fast-paced marketplace.”

Walid Yehia, general manager – UAE, Dell Technologies added: “The retail industry has been the regional economy’s driving force and today stands at a tipping point fueled by new market opportunities and massive digital transformation drives. With strong business confidence placed on the retail sector, technology has a key role in ensuring these expectations are met. Our solutions help the retail industry to innovate and modernise their IT Infrastructure and stand out in a highly competitive market.
