Azizi said it will now be able to keep its operational costs "in check by reducing expenditure on IT infrastructure"
Dubai-based developer Azizi Developments has teamed up with Bios Middle East (Bios ME), which it called the largest cloud provider in the Middle East, in an effort to enhance its information technology (IT) infrastructure.
According to a statement, Bios ME will “leverage industry-leading cloud solutions” to offer the developer fully managed services, including hosting its enterprise resource planning (ERP) and critical workloads with a business continuity planning (BCP) strategy.
Following the move, the developer said it will now be able to keep its operational costs in check by “reducing expenditure on IT infrastructure while using a platform that is instantly accessible, scalable, and continuously protected against threats”.

Speaking on the deal, Hashim Saeed, Azizi’s head of IT, said: “Azizi has seen significant growth over the years, and with Bios Middle East, we will have the flexibility needed to develop and innovate our services, giving us the agility we need to meet the challenges facing the real estate sector both now and in the future.
“Bios us the only company from the Middle East to be highlighted by Gartner for two consecutive years, [and that] strengthened our confidence in Bios as a cloud and cloud managed services partner,” Saeed added.
Rudi Feitsma, director of Bios ME, added: “Cloud penetration in the real-estate sector is now becoming a key strategic component for growth.
“IT leaders in this sector are making cloud services a priority, where approximately 80% of the top global real estate performers are using some form of cloud.”
