GTS targets media

ENOC subsidiary firm Global Technology Services (GTS) will focus its attention this year on the telecommunications and media industries, the company revealed.

ENOC subsidiary firm Global Technology Services (GTS) will focus its attention this year on the telecommunications and media industries, the company revealed.

The systems integrator and IT solutions consultant will also develop its services for the banking and financial services industry, after completing implementation of Oracle's HRMS Suite at Sharjah Islamic Bank in a record 75 days earlier this year.

"GTS has made the decision to focus our efforts on the telecommunication and media industries this year. We now have two companies in the media which we have worked with successfully, and for this reason we will continue to specialise in these two areas - as well as continuing our development in the banking and financial service sectors," says Mageesh Srinivasan, program manager MENA at GTS.

GTS originated as part of the Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC) diversification strategy to provide value add and committed services to regional and international markets.

The firm offers a spectrum of IT consulting and implementation services across various industries, including oil and gas, trading and distribution, banking and finance, retail automation, manufacturing and the automotive sector.

"We provide business consulting, and implementation for a multiple industry focus. What makes us unique from our competitors is our specialised end-to-end service. If you used any ERP solution as a company, you may get 80%  to 85% fit for the solution, but with GTS we bridge the gap, focusing on the specific industry needs, and therefore can provide a holistic 100% fit for the company," explains Srinivasan. 

The company's manager also believes that the Middle East is the region to be in right now, despite the current lack of local skilled and certified technicians.

"There is now a lot of competition in the Middle East region compared with a few years ago, and due to the large cash reserves created mainly by the oil and gas industry, the region will be a great place for technological developments in the coming years, and should catch up quickly with the competing geographies," says Srinivasan.
