The Jedox Roadshow made its debut in the Middle East at the end of 2013 with an event held in collaboration with our first certified partner in the region, Al Shahbaa Computers.

“The event’s success is illustrative of the growing profile of business intelligence software in the region and its status as a rising priority for CFOs and CIOs. It’s perfect timing for Jedox to be establishing a footprint in the market”, explains Jedox EMEA Regional Channel Director, Andreas Simon.

The Roadshow was held at the Gloria Hotel at the heart of Dubai Internet City, the region’s largest information technology park, which is designed to support the development of business information and communication technology in the Middle East and North Africa.

“It was great to hold this first regional event. The day went very well and we made lots of new connections. Lots of new members joined the Jedox Professionals LinkedIn hub”, comments Simon.

Al Shahbaa Computers became a Jedox certified partner in June 2013 and has been actively selling Jedox business intelligence software in the region since December. As well as offices in Dubai and Sharjah in the UAE, it has a presence in Jordan and has recently made an acquisition in Saudi Arabia.

Another Jedox Roadshow in Dubai is planned for April 2014. In the meantime, the Jedox Academy will hold its first business breakfast in the region on 3rd March, at the same venue.
