ZainTECH, the integrated digital solutions provider of Kuwait’s Zain Group, has established its state-of-the-art Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Hub, and thus expanding its operations at the Dubai Internet City.
The strategic move further positions ZainTECH at the forefront of digital transformation in the region and will help the company serve its growing customer base. Spanning over 13,000 sq.ft., the ICT hub will not only serve as an operational center of excellence (CoE), but also drive technological initiatives and synergies across business units.
Hosting over 300 employees, the UAE CoE will foster continuous learning and dynamic collaboration across Zain’s regional footprint. Its launch event was attended by highly esteemed guests, including Mr. Bader Al-Kharafi Vice-Chairman and Group CEO of Zain, Mr. Abdulla Belhoul CEO of TECOM Group, on behalf of Dubai Internet City, Mr. Andrew Hanna CEO of ZainTECH, Mr. Ammar Al Malik, Executive Vice President of Commercial at TECOM Group, and the company’s leadership team in Dubai.
“Our new offices serve as a testament to our unwavering commitment to nurturing innovation and pioneering transformative solutions that unleash boundless potential for our customers. As the mission critical center for ZainTECH’s operations, the new ICT Hub will drive technological initiatives and synergies across the business, empowering us to expand and target new markets. Dubai Internet City and TECOM Group act as vibrant gateways to innovation and digital transformation, creating the ideal ecosystem for us to thrive and actively contribute to the ever-evolving landscape of technology.”
“Cross-functional collaboration is the cornerstone for unleashing the full potential of innovation at a scale that transforms the way industries operate. Dubai Internet City is aligned with the Dubai Economic Agenda ‘D33’ mandate to catalyze such collaborative synergies, and ZainTECH’s new office within our ecosystem ensures its talent pool across the world can seamlessly exchange ideas and knowledge from Dubai, a global market of significance for innovators and digital transformation experts. We welcome ZainTECH to benefit from the shared knowledge pool and innovations nurtured at our district,” Mr. Al Malik said.
