In the coming years, SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises) will invest more money into information technology. That is due to the fact that the MENA region will boost boost its economy and create more long-term job positions.

According to recent researches, small and medium-sized enterprises are expected to spend about $24.48 billion on IT by 2015. That is $7.75 billion more compared to 2011. The most financially active countries last year were Saudi Arabia (11%), the UAE (9%), Turkey (12%) and South Africa (26%). The next few years this trend is likely to remain the same.

SMEs are an important part of every advanced economy. In addition, they also affect the level of employment in a country. According to the Ministry of Foreign Trade, in the UAE small and medium-sized enterprises make up over 80% of the country’s private sector. Right now there are about 200,000 SMEs in the UAE. As a result, this business highly influences the economy of the country. SMEs in the UAE play a key role in the economic development of the country.
