F5’s cloud portfolio grows as Oman remains positive
F5 Networks (Nasdaq: FFIV) is rapidly growing its cloud-native application services portfolio with solutions that address a broad range of modern application development use cases with consumption models that resonate no matter where customers may be in their cloud migration journey. Today, the company extends its portfolio with a new delivery model that leverages the AWS SaaS Enablement Framework for its market-leading application services.
The news chimes with recent survey results from market research agency Think Positive, which claims that C-level executives and business leaders in Oman overwhelmingly agree on cloud computing’s positive and transformative impact.
According to the study, 100 per cent of all Omani respondents believe cloud can have a positive impact on market share and help displace competitors; 94 per cent also stated that it can improve brand perception, and 91 per cent praised its capacity to improve innovation and positively impact the overall customer experience.
Similarly, decision-makers were keen to highlight cloud’s likely role in driving major government-led transformation initiatives. For example, 97 per cent believe cloud will be integral to Oman’s ongoing Vision 2040.
