IST & Genesys commissioned IDC to carry out research regarding cloud adoption and cloud trends in the Middle East. We learnt about who is involved in making decisions on the procurement of cloud-based customer engagement solutions and the top criteria for choosing a cloud-based contact center solution. Based on results from Saudi Arabia, UAE and Egypt almost half the survey respondents said that decision-making power lies in the hands of the Chief Information Officer (CIO) or the Head of IT, when it comes to selecting and procuring cloud-based contact centers. Moreover, the top criterion considered when selecting a cloud-based contact center in the Middle East was: ‘Regional Expertise’.
