The strategic move further positions ZainTECH at the forefront of digital transformation in the region and will help the company serve its growing customer base. Spanning over 13,000 sq.ft., the ICT hub will not only serve as an operational centre of excellence, but also drive technological initiatives and synergies across business units.

Cross-functional collaboration is the cornerstone for unleashing the full potential of innovation at a scale that transforms the way industries operate.

Dubai Internet City is aligned with the Dubai Economic Agenda ‘D33’ mandate to catalyse such collaborative synergies, and ZainTECH’s new office within our ecosystem ensures its talent pool across the world can seamlessly exchange ideas and knowledge from Dubai, a global market of significance for innovators and digital transformation experts. We welcome ZainTECH to benefit from the shared knowledge pool and innovations nurtured at our district.
