“We are seeing growing interest in our digital transformation consultancy services and solutions as the region awakens to the incredible possibilities of the hyper-connected world. We have new clients, new services, new staff, and a bold, bright future helping drive the region’s vital shift to more digital services.”

Xebia has partnered with three of Saudi Arabia’s largest banks, recognizing the banking sector as a key driver of the country’s rapid growth. The roadmap helps banks eliminate paperwork, reduce risk in their core activities, and enables staff to spend less time servicing clients and conducting transactions and settlements.

It is renowned for its coding expertise, with a focus on full-stack development, and Agile and DevOps expertise. Now, the company is seeing a wave of interest in Low Code, a highly visual, simpler approach to software development that brings cost efficiencies and saves time.
