STME becomes NetApp’s First Regional “Star Partner”

STME has been appointed as a Star Partner by NetApp, a leading computer storage and data management company. The Star Partner status was achieved as a result of successfully integrating NetApp’s data storage and management solutions in delivering unparalleled solutions to the customers.

STME is the first company in the UAE and the third in the Middle East region to have been recognized as a Star Partner. Furthermore, as STME has a vast network of branches across the GCC and MENA region, it has also attained the status of being NetApp’s first regional Star Partner.

“Becoming a NetApp Star Partner required hard work and commitment as well as establishing relationships with key companies in UAE, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Egypt. We are delighted to receive this recognition and accolade from NetApp. It is a big achievement which is a testament to our professionalism and technical knowledge,” said Mr. Ayman Al Bayaa, CEO of STME.

“STME has been a trusted and committed partner over the past 10 years. We are pleased to honour this commitment with a promotion to Star Partner status. Building on this momentum, we look forward to more successful joint business in the region,” said Fadi Kanafani, Director MENA & Pakistan at NetApp.

Increased collaboration between NetApp and STME will benefit both organisations in strengthening STME’s products, delivering service support to NetApp customers across the region, and promoting long-term business growth in the Middle East.
