Falcon 9, a UAE based cloud technologies consulting and management company has recently been acquired by the Chinese and Korean pioneers of cloud management, Bespin Global. The new company, called Bespin Global MEA, will launch this month. This strategic acquisition was made by Bespin Global to immediately access the Middle East cloud market, which is estimated to reach about $4 billion by 2022 (Gartner).
Falcon 9 is one of the Middle East’s leading cloud consultants and integrators, providing innovative applications development and managed services to adapt regional business infrastructure to the next-generation. Bespin Global, however, offers a worldwide perspective with it’s 850 global experts providing multi-cloud management services to those enterprises wishing to adopt cloud technologies.
Leading cloud technology vendors like Amazon Web Services (Bahrain), Microsoft Azure (UAE) and Alibaba Cloud (UAE) are investing heavily in the MEA region. The newly formed Bespin Global MEA will allow them to access local cloud technology customers. Bespin Global MEA, on the other hand, will crucially assist customers to seamlessly transition their businesses eco-systems to these global cloud providers.
John HanJoo Lee, CEO, and Co-Founder of Bespin Global said “As the largest cloud force in East Asia, Bespin Global is now expanding into the MEA market through the acquisition of Falcon 9. We will not only help our MEA customers adopt the Cloud, but also support them to harness the power of Artificial Intelligence (AI).” He continued, “Bespin Global MEA will provide end-to-end cloud services to accelerate the region’s digital transformation.”
Speaking about the relationship, Mouteih Chaghlil, Founder of Falcon 9 added “Falcon 9 and Bespin Global share the same DNA, and aligning our cultures and inspirations accelerates our global growth. Falcon 9’s local market presence and Bespin Global’s worldwide resources will create synergies to match the region’s growing technology demand.” He continued, “The new company focus will be to enable customers on their journeys to building data-driven organizations through the Cloud, DevOps, Big Data and AI technologies.”
Cloud technology adoption is increasing rapidly in MEA with large enterprises such as Dubai Airports, Careem and Majid Al Futtaim already embracing it. As a result, Bespin Global MEA will build significantly upon the original Falcon 9 team and expand existentially in the UAE, KSA, and Bahrain.
