How Finesse Enables Businesses to Secure Digital Transformation Journeys
Sunil Paul, Co- Founder and MD Finesse and Eljo J P, Chief Business Officer and Director, Finesse, discuss how the systems integrator plays a key role in fast-tracking customers’ digital transformation initiatives in the region.
There are several systems integration companies in the region. What are the factors that distinguish Finesse from the rest?
Finesse is one of the most trusted software companies in the GCC, providing next-generation digital solutions and services to companies across industry verticals. The key differentiators that separate Finesse from other system integration (SI) companies in the region are –
- Finesse’s vision
Since Finesse’s founding in 2010, it has been guided by the vision to positively impact the lives of people in the GCC region. This vision is at the heart of every decision Finesse makes. With this vision, Finesse has added products and services that have enabled businesses in the region to remain competitive while enriching the lives of people.
- Finesse tailors solutions to your business needs
A one-size-fits-all approach does not work in business. With its extensive experience supporting businesses of various sizes (small, medium, enterprise) and across domains, Finesse has developed the competence to support its clients with the best-tailored solution that will be most successful.
- Finesse is focused on providing holistic solutions
A poorly planned digital transformation can prove costly for a company. For example, many companies invest heavily in digital transformation initiatives without planning for the security concerns that are essential to these initiatives. This can result in customer distrust and unnecessary financial and reputation losses for businesses. With Finesse, organisations can trust they will receive a comprehensive digital transformation solution that will ensure their initiatives will succeed.

How can Finesse help businesses in securing digital transformation?
For all the benefits they bring to businesses, digital transformation also carries a certain amount of risk. Known collectively as digital risks, these are unexpected consequences that result from digital transformation. While digital risks are many, most of them fit into cybersecurity risk, compliance, resilience, and data privacy categories. According to a Kaspersky report, there has been a 190% increase in cyberattacks in the UAE since the pandemic started in March 2020. These attacks undermine customer confidence and have reputational, legal, and financial consequences for businesses.
Keeping your business’s digital transformation secure is just as important as digital transformation itself. Taking both aspects into consideration will let you get the most benefit from your business going digital.
Finesse, the digital transformation pioneer in the GCC, helps you plan and fuel your digital ambition, while also securing your business on the digital front, so you move forward with confident caution on your digital journey.
