Passionate About Business Transformation

Having been in IT for 3 decades has its advantages. A lot of groundbreaking ideas come and go - and they eventually become part of the rich history that is the technology industry. 

In the early years, this was more evolutionary automating the 'known' processes - from typewriter to word processor. Today we have gone full circle where technology is the driving force behind new business applications.

At Gulf Consulting we love technology.

But we are really excited when we see this being applied to improve the client business and wellbeing.

At the cross road of new technologies is where the most disrupting solutions are being created.

3D / VR / AR / AI / Cloud / Quantum / Open Source / Crypto / Blockchain etc etc

Take our Asset Management solutions. Drones or UAVs – a previously, military only, tech – with their ability to collect high precision visual data (and more). Enhance this with other IoT devices. Pipe this through AI for finding patterns and anomalies.

You get a very effective (time), efficient (cost) and accurate monitoring environment for enterprises to protect their factories, mines, infrastructure etc. We can protect the employees in areas where human inspection is dangerous due to the heat, gasses, radiation or instability of structures. And we can use data to make better decisions to improve the businesses.

Contact Gulf Consulting today to discuss what we can do for you.
