The public cloud services market in Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region is projected to grow 22.2 percent in 2017 to total $1.2billion, up from $956 million in 2016, according to Gartner, Inc.

The highest growth for the cloud services market in MENA comes from platform as a service (PaaS) at 28.8 percent growth and software as a service (SaaS) at 28.5 percent growth (see Table 1).

“The growth in PaaS and SaaS are indicators that migration of application and workloads from on premises data centers to the cloud, as well as development of cloud ready and cloud native applications, are fueling growth in the cloud space,” said Sid Nag research director at Gartner. “Software vendors will continue to shift investments from on-premises license-based software to cloud-based offerings.”
