He is an innovative technology strategist with extensive experience in cloud and infrastructure technologies,” said Devoteam of its latest senior recruit. 

Across the Middle East, Devoteam has over 450 consultants and technologists, specialised in helping clients in both the public and private sector with delivering their digital transformation agenda. The firm (which has 8,000 employees globally) works across several technology platforms, with Microsoft one its key specialisations.

Worldwide, Devoteam is a multiple Microsoft Partner of the Year Award winner across its consulting, solutions and managed services offerings, and in the Middle East, the firm has over the past months “invested in expanding its Microsoft partnership and expertise,” according to a statement.
