  • (1888PressRelease) July 28, 2011 - Comtech Global, a Microsoft service provider division formed by ITON, was inaugurated in the Sultanate at a ceremony held in Grand Hyatt on Saturday June 25th.

    Siva Prasad, Chief Executive Officer of ITON, said that the inauguration was significant to assist businesses to define the new model of how they should look at investments in Information Technology.

    "ITON has very good market penetration in the Sultanate within the past 12 years of its operations, especially in both government and private sectors," he said.

    Prasad said: "We were able to successfully launch a 30-day risk free pilot programme for SharePoint and signed up a few customers prior to the event."

    "The SharePoint 2010 Pilot programme has been made available to customers after a schedule of training set by the team to demonstrate the business benefits of the product," Prasad said. He said that the Comtech Global Team has experts on Microsoft Technologies and have been providing Onsite Services under the ITON flag for Active Directory, Hyper-V, Exchange Migrations, as well as SharePoint Enterprise Deployments and Customization.

    Mohamed Nayaz, Director of Advisory Services commenting of Ernst and Young, said: "Whether or not this concept is new is still debatable, but it is widely acknowledged that cloud computing offers innovation, flexibility, cost savings and is yet to be tapped to its full potential. In Oman, we are seeing an emerging trend in organizations showing interest and embracing cloud computing in a gradual manner."

    "At Ernst and Young, we advise and hand hold organizations through their journey of identifying and migrating their IT systems from a traditional model to a cloud computing model. In this process, we assist organizations in developing cloud transformation strategy, establishing cloud architectures and managing risks in cloud computing. Ernst and Young is the first amongst Big 4 firms to join the renowned Cloud Security Alliance Group. At Ernst and Young, we understand these changing needs of business and we are committed to help our clients with their cloud computing initiatives," Nayaz said.

    Mehdi Abbas, Vice-President (Sales and Marketing) of ITON, said that the Comtech Global was different from others in the sector as customers opting for ITON's Microsoft Service Provider Licensing Model On-Premise or Private Cloud Services will benefit from a very efficient return on investment policy. The deployment, delivery and service models are designed to ensure 99.9 per cent guaranteed uptime for businesses and their mission critical applications, he said.
