My name is Omar Amin and I am a management consultant covering the Middle East and Africa, based out of Dubai. I work with very large, multi-national organisations to help them achieve complex transformations.
I am a UK national of Iraqi origin and have lived all over the Middle East and Europe. This cross-pollination of cultures gives me an interesting perspective on work… and life in general.
My current passion is cloud computing and through this, I strive to help my clients increase their revenue potential on the business side and drive flexibility and efficiency in their IT. Clients that I work with are typically telco operators, financial institutions, government entities and each has their own unique drivers and requirements.
With this blog, I will be writing about my experiences working in this field as well as about some of the characteristics of working in this geography. I’ll also be posting as @omarinthecloud on twitter.
