Abu Dhabi, UAE., November 22, 2022 – Software intelligence company Dynatrace (NYSE: DT) today announced the availability of the Dynatrace® platform on Microsoft Azure hosted in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), making it the first SaaS-based observability and application security platform hosted in the region.

Rising cloud complexity is creating challenges for many organizations in the UAE as they continue to prioritize digital transformation. A recent study revealed the number of tools needed to monitor the end-to-end technology stack makes it difficult to operate efficiently. Organizations need full-stack, hybrid, multicloud observability and advanced AIOps and automation to tame this complexity and drive large-scale digital transformation.

Harish Dunakhe, Sr. Research Director of Software and Cloud at IDC, said, “For more than 60% of organizations in the UAE, migrating to the cloud has become a foundational platform in driving their digital journeys. We expect cloud adoption to grow at around 25% in the UAE between 2021 and 2026, with organizations steadily moving their critical business applications to the cloud. Solutions that help organizations improve observability and AI-enabled IT Operations Management (AIOps) will be essential in reducing the complexity for organizations in the UAE.”
