IDC in the Middle East

With its regional headquarters in Dubai, IDC has had a direct presence in the Middle East since the early 1990s, combining local insights with international perspectives to provide large IT vendors, telcos, channel partners, service providers, and end-user organizations across the Gulf, Egypt, and Levant with a comprehensive understanding of the dynamic markets that make up this diverse region.

We have been tracking the Middle East for over 25 years and our respected standing in the market has enabled us to establish close working relationships with multiple ICT ministries, foreign investment agencies, national ICT organizations, and regulatory bodies throughout the region, providing them with in-depth consultancy services designed to inform a new generation of technology policies, strategies, and regulations for the digital era.

With an office in Riyadh, IDC is closely aligned with Saudi Arabia's digital transformation initiatives and was the first international advisory firm to author a report on the impact of ICT on the Kingdom's ambitious National Transformation Program (NTP). And through our office in Cairo, we are ideally positioned to monitor the latest ICT developments in Egypt, the biggest consumer and services market in the Middle East and Africa.

You can follow IDC Middle East on Twitter at @IDCMEA.

To complement our extensive research and consultancy services, IDC hosts a series of annual technology roadshows and CIO Summits across the Middle East, exploring key emerging trends like big data, IoT, security, and cloud. We also have a proven track record of organizing world-class custom events that have been meticulously tailored to meet the unique needs of individual clients.
