Infor to highlight the power of industry-specific ERP solutions to drive transformation at roundtables in Riyadh, Khobar and Jeddah
DUBAI, UAE – May 16, 2022 – Infor, the industry cloud company, and IDC, the leader in market intelligence, are set to reveal key insights about digital transformation for organizations involved in industrial manufacturing and distribution sectors at a series of dedicated roundtables in Saudi Arabia in May.
Experts from Infor and IDC will host three roundtables, in Riyadh, Khobar, and Jeddah, on May 16, 17 and 24 respectively, where they will lead discussions on topics including the latest DX technologies, how organizations can embrace their digital transformation journey with industry-specific cloud ERP, and key predictions about the Saudi Arabian market.
In a recent IDC survey, 72% of Saudi organizations cited cloud as being fundamental to driving innovation and digital transformation in their businesses, while a study from QuantAlign Research revealed that Saudi Arabia’s cloud market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 35.5% between 2021-2030 to reach a value of $10.5 billion in 2030. Saudi Arabia’s government is also encouraging digitization efforts as part of diversification plans under Saudi Vision 2030.
Investment in cloud solutions also necessitates the adoption of specialized, industry-specific cloud-based software solutions to maximize the potential of companies’ transformation efforts.
At each of the roundtables, experts including Hamza Naqshbandi, IDC associate vice president, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain; Phil Lewis, Infor senior vice president, solution consulting; and Khaled AlShami, Infor vice president of solution consulting, Middle East and Africa, will offer a detailed look at the Saudi market and share key insights about the state of digital transformation and application modernization underway in the kingdom. The events will also feature keynotes and panel discussions, including speakers from AWS, who will share insights on cloud and digital transformation.
The event will provide insights into how modern technologies can enable businesses to quickly scale up and spend less time managing infrastructure, giving them more time to focus on strategic initiatives.
“Saudi Arabia is a dynamic market with huge growth potential. The government is committed to developing and diversifying the economy under Saudi Vision 2030, and this is stimulating further investment from the private sector,” IDC’s Naqshbandi said. “The rapid pace of change makes it essential for organizations to get their cloud and digital transformation strategies right in order to remain competitive, tap opportunities, and align with the country’s vision.”
“Organizations in Saudi Arabia are increasingly interested in cloud solutions and digital transformation, which makes it the perfect time to raise awareness about the need to develop continuous transformation plans and to embrace industry-specific digital solutions that give the best results for the nuanced needs of different industries,” said Infor’s AlShami.
The roundtables will take place at the Hilton Riyadh Hotel & Residences in Riyadh on May 16, the Movenpick in Khobar on May 17, and Park Hyatt in Jeddah on May 24.
