"As Saudi companies move up the ICT value chain, service providers will play an important role in aligning these companies' IT strategies and business goals. Organizations in different verticals are seeking to engage with providers that have a deeper understanding of their business needs and that can come up with custom solutions. The implementation of 3rd Platform solutions, including big data and cloud, will require a certain amount of handholding in the short term. Keeping in mind the increasing price sensitivity of Saudi companies, it is critical for service providers to maintain the right balance between cost and quality in order to stay ahead of their rivals." — Senior Research Analyst Uzair Mujtaba, IT Services and Software, IDC Saudi Arabia
