Schneider, Binladin tie up on Haram power supply
The value of the contract is confidential but will be announced officially at a later stage.
In an exclusive interview with Arab News, Qasem, along with Soeren Juul Schroeder, the software sales director, explained that the IT business unit of Schneider Electric Saudi Arabia was established four years ago. It started with three female employees.
Schroeder said Saudi Arabia was not the first country to adopt the power efficiency software in the region but it is the fastest ever in terms of growth. "The important thing about our software is that it is an extension to all the beautiful things we already do with hardware. We've been helping our costumers to become more efficient as for many of them, data center becomes the mission-critical part of the operations. For the banks, for instance, where there are no data centers, there is no business," Schroeder said.
Qasem explained that the group today consists of around 25 professional engineers looking after partner management, account management, product management, architecture and design. "The growth of resources is very much connected to our market share growth in all of our business and product elements," Qasem said.
"These elements include power, secure power, software, cooling and data center businesses," he added.
