Indian IT services firm HCL Technologies has opened its regional headquarters for the Middle East operations in Dubai, UAE, in a move to boost its IT market in the region.
HCL already services more than 25 large organisations in Middle East and the headquarter will become the hub for regional operations. The company said that it will offer services across a range of service lines including product engineering and R&D, custom applications, enterprise application services, infrastructure management services and BPO.
Shiv Nadar, founder of HCL, said: “India and the Middle East have historically had strong ties and HCL is happy to take that relationship one step forward by extending this partnership to the technology realm. From designing the world’s first micro computer at the same time as global IT peers in 1978; to working on the Boeing Dreamliner’s airborne systems today, HCL is a Pioneer of modern computing.
“We are happy to bring to our partners in the Middle East, HCL’s globally acknowledged transformational technology, which I believe will add great business value to the region. The Middle East, for us is a very interesting and high growth potential market and we continue to concentrate on it with a great deal of strategic intent and focus.”
