By acting as a catalyst in accelerating digital transformation at a rapid pace, the pandemic has renewed the focus on expanding the use of a company’s pre-existing technology stack and operating model to ensure business continuity. As the economy is on the cusp of recovery, owing to mass vaccination drives—businesses in the Middle East are leading the way by rapidly growing and transitioning into global enterprises.
