“Our robust performance in the MENA region comes on the back of a rising demand for quality and innovative tech services.

Kumar added, “We are happy to note that Tech Mahindra has achieved excellent growth figures for the third quarter of the current fiscal year. The growth is also the result of the company’s focus on non-linear growth engines in the MENA region, which also shows the possibilities of joint venture, acquisitions and business value consulting. Feeling bullish on more growth towards the end of the fiscal year, we are seeing the next wave of transformative growth coming in as a result of forging the right alliances, partnerships and acquisitions. This posted increase in revenue reflects the positive response that we have received towards our commitment to leverage key IT solutions and services across various industry verticals in the Middle East. We expect MENA revenues to grow faster as compared to the global average IT budget outlook and growth scenario thereof.”
“We remain optimistic with the prospects presented by IT services in the MENA region’s enterprise business arena, with IMS and enterprise services topping the trends in the region. We are now in talks with multiple enterprise clients on their IMS and enterprise services needs. One solution that we have strongly recommended is shared services, where clients can get full services support in a cost-effective manner. It’s a vibrant market out there and we are upbeat about IMS, AMS, T&M and Business transformation deals. We are now focusing on clinching more deals and new customer acquisitions," concluded Kumar.
