Injazat Data Systems has been appointed by Abu Dhabi Ship Building (ADSB), under a 5-year key IT outsourcing deal, to support the critical IT requirements of ADSB, the sophisticated military and commercial shipbuilding facility.
Under the terms of the agreement, Injazat will host ADSB’s data at its 2,000-sqm design-certified Tier IV Data Centre, the first facility of its kind in the Middle East, located in Abu Dhabi’s Mohammed Bin Zayed City. The deal, which takes effect on March 1, 2011, includes IT outsourcing, enhancement and virtualization of the ship builder’s existing IT infrastructure and Enterprise Resource Planning implementation.

Mr. Al Junaibi was referring to the ‘2010 Frost & Sullivan Market Share Leadership of the Year for the UAE Captive Managed Services Market’ award.
“Our collaboration with ADSB shows how Injazat can contribute to the rapid expansion and success of the region’s growing manufacturing industry. We will be using our extensive ever-growing outsourcing experience to efficiently manage ADSB’s present and future IT requirements and enable them to concentrate on what they do best – building, maintaining and overhauling ships,” added Bala Pandalangat, CEO, Injazat Data Systems.
