Halian is working closely with NCR in Oman to deliver networking, computing infrastructure, IT storage, information kiosks and web check-in systems for the countries two major airports at Muscat and Salalah.
The Middle East continues to grow as a destination for business and leisure travel and freight shipping. The International Air Transport Association projects that from 2012 to 2016, the Middle East will have the third fastest air passenger growth rate in the world at 6.6%. Meanwhile, air freight demand will grow at 4.9%, the strongest growth among the regions of the globe. To meet this growth, Gulf countries like Oman are spending billions on airport expansion and development. As a result, partnering with major systems integrators such as NCR presents a major opportunity for Halian to engage on a large scale infrastructure projects such as this one.
Over the last two years, Halian has provided a number of consultants on this project but has just agreed terms to broaden our engagement model beyond staff augmentation and to utilize our capability to deliver data-centre services.
“There is tremendous opportunity for Halian to grow a significant relationship with NCR in the region. Congratulations to Will Bolling and Scott Gladden for developing the relationship and now taking it to the next level," says Stuart Fry, Halian Emerging Markets Managing Director.
