Azizi Developments, a leading private developer in the UAE, is implementing open-source software in line with its SARSMUP (Security, Agility, Reliability, Scalability, Mistake-Proofing, User-Friendliness, Performance, Interoperability) perspectives of Software Acquisition, while also optimising the cost for its IT domains up to 90 per cent.
While open-source solutions are not completely free of charge, they are outstandingly powerful tools for developers such as Azizi Developments to gain technological efficiencies, fix bugs, improve functions, and adapt assorted software to suit different requirements and needs. Azizi’s implementation is scheduled for completion by June 2021.
Azizi Developments’ digital transformation journey has its customer’s best interests at heart – the developer aims to continuously lower operational costs to make its properties more affordable and secure its investors higher ROIs. Through new and improved technologies, the developer is enhancing its customer journeys, with a special focus on increased ease of transactions and more seamless and convenient customer service.
Dr. Syed Mahsud Ali, Chief Information Officer at Azizi Developments, said: “Businesses are constantly searching for digital solutions to help them run more efficiently and realise more substantial profits faster. Open-source software is developed in a decentralised manner, relying on peer reviews and community production. It is often more cost effective, more flexible, and has more longevity than its proprietary peers because it is developed by entire communities rather than isolated teams. Open-source solutions will help us keep track of the processes and enable us to make sure that everything done is well within scope and budget.”
“The usage of open-source software entails paying only for features that we use, instead of having to spend on packages with dozens of built-in ones that are never even required or made use of. We will be able to migrate in 4.5 hours at night-time without any data damage or the potential of any cybersecurity breaches”, he continued.
