The joint venture is committed to boost the digital capabilities of Saudi Arabian companies and industries, offering a comprehensive portfolio of services of digital transformation, cybersecurity, and Data & AI, including Noventiq’s proprietary AI solutions like Weaver AI, Fintense, and Selecta, alongside global technologies such as Microsoft Copilot. These initiatives are designed to elevate organizational efficiency and productivity, aligning with Saudi Vision 2030's goals for digital transformation.

As General Manager for this region, Mohamed Mostafa will oversee the markets of Saudi Arabia and Egypt, focusing on driving growth, fostering innovation, and leading strategic initiatives aimed at leveraging the region's dynamic technology landscape. Under his leadership, Noventiq expects to invest in the region to support its ambitious expansion plans and meet the growing demand for advanced digital transformation and cybersecurity solutions.

Hervé Tessler, CEO of Noventiq, commented: "Our collaboration with Al-Suwaiket Group and the establishment of this joint venture are key milestones in Noventiq's journey towards becoming a leading force in the Saudi Arabia’s digital transformation sphere. This market’s accelerated growth represents a great opportunity for Noventiq, and I am really glad to have Mohamed to lead this joint venture and our expansion project across Saudi Arabia.”

Sheik Mubarak bin Abdullah Al-Suwaiket, Chairman of Al-Suwaiket Group, shared: "This joint venture with Noventiq marks a new era of technological advancement for Saudi Arabia. By combining our local expertise with Noventiq's global capabilities, we are setting a new standard for innovation and digital excellence in the region."
