Speaking about their Gitex plans, Mr. Gonzalo Usandizaga, Vice President and General Manager, Vignette EMEA says, “Being the largest IT exhibition in the Middle East - Gitex is an ideal platform for us to showcase our award winning products and also to meet potential customers and partners. We plan to aggressively promote our trend setting product Vignette V7 at Gitex. We also plan to strengthen our Middle East network by looking for strategic partnerships and new channel partners.�

“The internet has brought considerable change in the relationship between organisations and their customers. The reliance on the web in making purchasing decisions is now much greater. Providing easy access to relevant information is the key to attracting and retaining customers. The online experience provided can be as important to the brand as transactions are to the bottom line. Organisations can increase customer satisfaction if they learn to harness the power of information and the Web and create a personalised online experience,� Mr. Usandizaga explains.

“In today’s world more than forty nine percent of Fortune 100 companies rely on Vignette to access, manage, collaborate, deploy, archive and dispose of their information. Vignette is a trend setter in ECM and is the recipient of many industry awards. Gitex is for us a forum for demonstrating our innovative award winning products to the ME market, strengthening our local presence and confirming our commitment to the region�, he adds.

“Vignette’s commitment to growing it’s ME customer base is total, we already have marquee clients such as Etisalat, ADCO, National Bank of Dubai, Vodafone Egypt, Citicorp, and the DOHA Asian Games. However we see the market for our software as potentially much larger across the region, as clients realize there are limits to what you can do with partial solutions offered by other vendors such as Microsoft and Oracle in this field, and increasingly turn to the leading Enterprise Content Management vendors like Vignette to create lasting information management solutions� comments Richard Jones, Middle East Territory Director, Vignette
