Interview with Christos Tattis, Senior Commercial Manager

What kind of a year has 2019 been for your firm? Name some of the highlights and/or low points.

2019 has been another fruitful year for us. We have been working towards providing top quality IT solutions and services in both the private and public sector and we are very proud to be recognized for this. During the year, we have made some significant progress in exporting our expertise in Law Enforcement solutions. We have established a strong presence in Cyprus, Greece and Croatia and have been shortlisted in various other countries. We are now established as one of the few companies in Europe that have the expertise to execute this kind of complex and mission- critical projects. In the private sector, I would say that the year was dedicated to the Cloud Business. We promote some best-in-class business solutions, such as Salesforce CRM and Oracle NetSuite ERP. CIO Review has nominated NetU as “One the 20 Most Promising Solution Providers” in the world for 2019. I would say that this is the result of the hard work done during the last two years at all levels.

 

More broadly speaking, has 2019 been a good year for your profession in Cyprus and internationally? What have the main developments been?

In general, 2019 has been a good year for our profession. The Cyprus ICT Services market has seen year-on-year growth of 9%, which is far better than the expected recovery from a financial crisis of the magnitude experienced in Cyprus. Both the public and private sector have been recognizing more and more the need to act more decisively in the digital transformation era. Investment in digital transformation is becoming a necessity and that’s where NetU is positioned, to help and advise our customers. During the year, we had a very significant development in terms of enforcing and embedding Data Compliance and Security in B2C applications, through the GDPR rollout. We have seen the impact of this Directive as a significant opportunity for our profession, both in terms of creating new software and in adjusting what already exists. Furthermore, the Government has announced a number of important and high-value projects as part of its digital strategy. The acceptance of efficiently doing business in the Cloud was another important development directly affecting our profession. A significant percentage of ICT investments are geared in this direction. More and more businesses acknowledge the benefits of Cloud Computing. We feel very proud, since we have been working for the last 4-5 years to achieve this Cloud Computing uptake in Cyprus. As one of the largest system integrators on the island, we feel very strongly about this and we are still actively promoting it.

 

How do you view the present state of the Cyprus economy and what are your hopes and/or predictions for it in 2020?

It’s obvious that, over the last 2 years, the Cypriot economy has exceeded expectations, with 4% annual GDP growth. While this is expected to slow down in the coming next years, the forecast remains positive. This is reflected in IT spending as well and it is expected that companies will increase their investment in IT solutions to achieve their digital transformation strategies. In the public sector, the award is expected of large projects that are currently under evaluation by the Government, giving a positive outlook to the ICT market. However, there will be some serious challenges in the near future, the most important of which, could be the IT talent shortage. We believe that it is important to establish a strategic partnership with educational institutions in Cyprus, in order to ensure that enough talent will graduate to cover most of the IT industry’s needs. Cypriot ICT companies have to remain competitive at a time when no limitations exist and the only way to do this is to create talented professionals with critical thinking who will promote efficient solutions.
