New alliance bolsters Middle East presence for FutureOn amid region’s digital transformation drive
FutureOn, the global software company specialising in the energy sector and creator of the award-winning, SaaS field design applications, FieldAP, and its APIcentric collaboration platform, FieldTwin, has appointed Dynamic Cloud as its representative in Saudi Arabia and Andreas Gaarder as Vice President of EMEA.
The new partnership with Dynamic Cloud, which has three offices in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain, will see customers across the Middle East benefit from localised, first class support from an on-the-ground team, regional market expertise, and short lead times on the delivery of FutureOn’s suite of next generation digital tools. This move is expected to support the region’s drive to embrace digital transformation across its energy operations.
In 2016, Saudi Arabia revealed its Vision 2030 initiative, a forward-thinking strategic framework to reduce the country’s dependence on oil, diversify its economy and create a digital infrastructure to enhance the competitiveness of the economy. A survey of local business leaders conducted in January 2021 found 86 percent consider digital adaptation to be very important towards achieving Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030.
The strategic partnership follows the appointment of Andreas Gaarder to the position of Vice President of EMEA. Previously responsible for overseeing FutureOn’s operations in the Eastern Hemisphere, Andreas will now lead the company’s growth in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and will be working closely with Dynamic Cloud to bring FutureOn’s digital solutions to operators across the Middle East, based out of Dubai.
Andreas brings a wealth of industry experience and understanding of the regional upstream software market to the role having held a number of senior positions with energy majors including Wood and Schlumberger, where over a seven-year period he held various roles within production engineering, business development and business management.
Commenting on the partnership, Andreas said:
“We are very pleased to announce our latest partnership with Dynamic Cloud, a company with a great reputation, who is familiar with the local Saudi market and experienced in working with regional national oil companies.
“This latest partnership plays an important role in the continued expansion of FutureOn’s international reach, and will allow us to acquire a deep understanding of the local energy landscape and customer needs.
“Demand for FutureOn’s digital solutions continues to grow in the Middle East as the region’s energy industry focuses on making greater efficiencies. We are confident that through this collaborative partnership, and our transformational digital twin solutions, we are well placed to support Saudi Arabia’s commitment to digital transformation.”
