Summit Technology Solutions (STS), the leading ICT and business solutions provider in the Middle East, has continued to expand their diversified portfolio of services across the region as they further strengthen existing partnerships with industry giants such as Hewlett Packard (HP), Avaya and Cisco Systems.

STS was recently granted the first-ever Avaya Quality Service Provider Certification in the Middle East for ensuring a superior level of customer satisfaction. As the only company in the region to receive this certification, the recognition adds to their status as an existing Avaya golden partner.

STS is also continuing to build on its strong relationship with Cisco as one of the leading Cisco Gold Certified Partners, which is part of the Cisco Channel Partner Program. This is in addition to STS’s position as a Gold Partner with Oracle and Microsoft, where STS is one of the top 5 resellers for Microsoft in Egypt. STS has also earned the honor of being one of the few HP Platinum Partners for meeting the certification requirements across a total of nine industry-specific criteria.

“Further developing our technical competence is a major strategy for STS as we continue to provide quality ICT services to our customers in Egypt and Africa,” said Mrs. Magda El Sabee, CEO of STS.“As we support the business needs of our clients, we’re also supporting the ICT sector in Egypt and across the continent by demonstrating the superior quality, professionalism and industry expertise Egyptian ICT companies are capable of providing to clients all over the world.”

The strength of STS’s partnerships with leading international ICT companies reflect the value and expertise Egyptian skills can provide the global ICT market as the country aims to take advantage of Africa’s growing demand for quality, cost-effective ICT solutions. The ITIDA initiative “Africa Together”, launched earlier this year in partnership with the International Data Corporation (IDC), is aimed at supporting growth in the country's information and communications technology (ICT) sector and transforming it into a key contributor to Egypt's economy.

According to the IDC, initiatives such as the Africa Together program will contribute $6.5 billion to Egypt's ICT market in 2015. A more long-term industry forecast was provided by Egypt's minister of communications and technology, who said that mostly private investments into ICT of up to $18.5 billion are expected to lead to 19% growth in the sector, contributing to a 7% rise in the gross domestic product by 2020.
