ICT system integrator Waseela has hired Bilal Al-Anani as its chief technology officer. Al-Anani joins Waseela with a background in M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering Systems from the University of Michigan and as a former employee from Cisco Systems, where he held senior positions for the last 10 years. In his new position, Al-Anani will be responsible for reinforcing Waseela's technical edge and expanding its current portfolio of solutions and services. Waseela is approaching its tenth year in operations and is undergoing a technology strategy review and reshaping; Al-Anani will be playing the key role in that process. Al-Anani said: "We will focus on emerging technologies in the field of IoT/M2M, network intelligence and automation systems that are relevant to our region, and provide the highest value to our customers." "It is really an exciting time to join Waseela to lead its technology strategy. Waseela has proven itself as a leading master system integrator in the Middle East. The ICT industry is currently going through a major transformation where the drive towards operational efficiency and automation is increasingly demanding more complex systems, which in turn is creating unique opportunities for experienced and innovative system integrators like Waseela," he added.
