After the initial ‘firefighting’ phase of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, both public and private sector organizations have resumed their operations albeit with a ‘work-from-home’ model. Nonetheless, to avoid any further hiccups in their business workflow, these organizations are fortifying their backend infrastructure to anticipate whatever changes may arise in the coming months. To do so, they need to build secure and scalable data centers that can manage the enormous amount of distributed data generated daily from disparate locations. Their best choice is to implement a hybrid IT and multi-cloud solution. However, its successful implementation is complex and requires the technical know-how of an experienced digitization partner.

Enter Emircom, a maven in the hybrid IT and multi-cloud space. As a professional system integrator and a market leader in ICT for the past 30 years, Emircom empowers organizations—especially the public sector agencies—to cope with the transformational changes that result from building solutions around Dell EMC/VMware. “We can help our customers execute their digital transformation strategy seamlessly and move ahead with a work-from-home model more confidently,” comments Mohamed Kabel, the Head of the Hybrid IT and Multi-Cloud-Business Unit at Emircom.

Notably, with Emircom’sextensive competencies in the hybrid IT and multi-cloud space, they have been able to meet and surpass the requirements of various vital organizations in the UAE, such as Dubai Police, The Ministry of Labor, and Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC). From delivering Dell virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solution to the Dubai Police to setting up VMware Cloud Foundation (VCF) for MBRSC and unifying different infrastructures for the Ministry of Labor, Emircom’s technical prowess and commitment toward virtualization are reflected in each of its partnerships.

Emircom’s achievements haven’t gone unnoticed: last year, it was recognized as a ‘Titanium Partner’ as well as the ‘Services Partner of the Year’ by Dell.
The status of ‘Titanium Partner,’ especially, is reserved only for partners demonstrating exceptional capabilities, expert-level certifications, and a strong commitment toward Dell’s portfolio of products and solutions. Mohamad Abou-Zaki, the CEO of Emircom, says, “It is amazing to see our company transition from being relatively new to the data center arena to becoming the top partner for Dell EMCin under three years.”

Right now, Emircom is combining all its domain expertise to become the one-stop-shop that meets the digitalization needs of large and mid-level enterprises as well as government organizations. “We are also partnering with public service agencies to take our offering to the lower end of the enterprise and the commercial business. And through these efforts, we believe that we can serve the entire country,” comments the CEO. To this end, Emircom is currently offering free cloud migration services, VDI and VC (VMware vCenter Server) remote access, and VC as a Service (VCaaS) to help organizations continue their operation interrupted during these challenging times.

What’s more? The HIC business unit of Emircom has recently launched a joint initiative with Dell to offer VCaaS to the education sector. Universities and educational institutions that opt for this service suite will have access to VDI, VCaaS, and virtual data room (VDR) solutions with a customized dashboard to access and review the delivery of their virtualized applications. Emircom also bundles the necessary hardware at a discounted price and helps bridge the digital divide among the students and institutions by making hardware donations to the teachers and faculty members. “It’s not just the data center and virtualization, we’re working with Dell on the complete stack, including servers and PCs,” Kabel adds.

Moving ahead, the company wants to stay laser-focused on upgrading its cloud and data center technologies. Abou-Zaki states, “We are going to invest more in our own public data center and will strengthen our capabilities for moving it to thecloud in addition to our current colocation offering.” Besides, the company also wants to expand its reach into neighbouring countries like Saudi Arabia and build a full-fledged Dell business unit to cover the local market. With such illustrious plans, Emircom is now poised to take its place at the high table as a leading IT partner in nation-building.
