Misys has just held its first partner advisory council for the Middle East and Africa (MEA), attended by more than 30 of its partners from the region.
Misys has a global partnership programme that enables and rewards partner investments, ensuring that Misys and its partners work hand-in-hand to the benefit of customers. The partner network in MEA has been established for many years, but in the past two years there has been a renewed focus to provide support and resources to grow the business with existing partners and attract new ones.
Among the organisations attending the two-day event were global partners, such as IBM and HCL, regional consulting partners and systems integrators, including Computer Business Machines (CBM), Union System Limited (USL) and Yemen Computer Company (YCC).
Bob McCormick, vice-president, global alliances, Misys, said: “Misys has been an integral part of the banking infrastructure in the Middle East and Africa for more than 27 years. We are delighted to have been able to host so many of our important partners in Dubai.”
