EDB Returns to GITEX Global 2023, Supporting Goals for Digital Transformation Through Open Source Technologies in Middle East

Date -2023-10-06 Location - DUBAI, UAE -- EnterpriseDB (“EDB”), the leader in accelerating Postgres® in the enterprise, proudly reaffirms its commitment to the Middle East's dynamic technology landscape by participating in the 43rd edition of GITEX Global. This premier technology exhibition in the region serves as an ideal platform for EDB to showcase its latest innovations and engage with industry leaders, partners, and potential customers.

The Middle East and Africa (MEA) have emerged as an epicenter of innovation, with a growing emphasis on open source technologies. Notably, in 2021, Saudi Arabia's Digital Government Authority launched an open source government strategy to drive digital transformation in the region, expected to contribute $1.3 billion to the region's digital economy.

The increasing focus on open source mandates, flexible deployment options, risk mitigation, and robust security is poised to fuel broader adoption of open source technologies like Postgres. Postgres has gained prominence as the most widely used and desired database globally. EDB is a key contributor to the Postgres community, empowering enterprises to accelerate their strategies, migrate applications to the cloud, and develop new applications on Postgres.

Building upon a successful event in 2022, EDB eagerly returns to the region’s mainstage of innovation with its participation at GITEX Global 2023. During the event, EDB will present their comprehensive suite of enterprise-grade software and services, featuring distributed Postgres, unparalleled Oracle compatibility, extreme high availability, and robust support for multi-cloud and hybrid cloud environments.

By seamlessly connecting a commitment to the region's technology landscape, the growing emphasis on open source, and its contributions to Postgres innovation, EDB looks forward to a successful and productive GITEX Global 2023 as we continue to empower enterprises in the Middle East and beyond.

“The Middle East and Africa (MEA) region holds immense strategic importance for our business,” says Hervé Timsit, EMEA GM and Vice President, EDB. “MEA has emerged as a significant adopter of open source technologies, and given our role as a major contributor to Postgres, our expansion and focus in the region aligns perfectly with our mission. In the coming years, our growth strategy in the region is ambitious but achievable. This growth will be driven by fostering strong partnerships, expanding our customer base, and continuously innovating to meet the evolving technological needs of the region.”

EDB is proud to showcase with esteemed partners, TechAccess and CloudSource, who will join them at the event to amplify the message of how Postgres can revolutionize organizations and accelerate innovation. The power of collaboration is central to EDB's strategy, and they welcome the opportunity to connect with companies that share their vision for the future of technology.

“The bold digital transformation missions in the Middle East and Africa have the potential to significantly impact the global tech ecosystem. Embracing open source and technologies like Postgres accelerates progress, fosters innovation, and contributes to global tech communities,” says Alfred Chrispanous, Managing Director, TechAccess Cloud.
