VMware Middle East has expanded its regional headquarters in Dubai, highlighting the role of digital technologies in developing innovative services in the UAE and the region.
The regional HQ in Dubai Internet City will support growth in the Middle East, Turkey, and North Africa and further increase its support for public and private sector customers on their cloud and app modernization journeys.
VMware Middle East is a strategic partnership with Moro Hub, a subsidiary of Digital DEWA, the digital arm of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA).
The newly expanded regional HQ in Dubai will streamline access to data, champion digital transformation, diversified economic growth, and embracing innovation agendas in alignment with the Dubai 10X initiative and UAE Centennial 2071 that aims to make the UAE a global hub of advanced digital solutions.
Since opening its first regional office in Dubai in 2012, VMware has developed its Middle East operation from an entity with 26 employees to a regional hub with 480 staff committed to helping organizations in the UAE and beyond achieve their transformation goals by enabling flexibility in how they build and evolve their digital environments and serve customers.
VMware Middle East is now better positioned to collaborate more closely with a growing number of customers on ambitious transformation projects in the UAE and across the region.
VMware works with DEWA, a pioneer of digital initiatives to boost its operations and customer services, and with Moro Hub, a Dubai-based cloud service provider that offers cloud and hosting services to government and enterprise customers in the UAE.
VMware collaborates with major customers in the UAE in sectors including government, healthcare, and finance, to transform the way they operate by embracing a cloud-first approach and modern apps aligned with the country’s national strategies.
In October 2020, Moro Hub launched the Middle East’s first certified Tier-III Green Data Center, which is fully powered by solar energy and runs on VMware cloud technologies. VMware Middle East supports the project, which is in unison with its 2030 Agenda’s sustainability goals of decarbonizing the world’s digital infrastructure across its customer ecosystem, value chain, and own operations. VMware has taken an early lead on sustainability and became a carbon neutral organization in November 2018.
The expansion of VMware’s Dubai office also demonstrates the growing importance of the UAE to VMware and as a regional hub. The country is moving ahead with ambitious 2030 targets to diversify its economy, digitize government services, and boost sustainability.
