Dubai Launchpad

Oracle chose Dubai as a launch pad for its global cloud computing initiative yesterday to highlight the significance of the region for both the company and the development of technology.

“We are in the region to ensure our commitment. This is a high-growth region, and there is a lot of IT opportunity in this region,” said Mark Hurd, the global president of Oracle, in a speech.

The company is looking to open new offices and development centres to boost its Oracle Development Initiative, which aims to educate 500,000 students throughout the Middle East and Africa about technology and to get Oracle products in their hands.
