Am­mar Al Ma­lik, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, DIC and Dubai Out­source City, said: “The tech­nol­ogy land­scape in Dubai is evolv­ing at breath-tak­ing speed. It is im­per­a­tive that busi­nesses keep up with the pace at which tech­nol­ogy is now be­ing de­vel­oped and con­sumed. In or­der to stay rel­e­vant, com­pet­i­tive and prof­itable, busi­nesses need to en­sure that they op­er­ate with a flex­i­ble busi­ness model, one that em­braces the con­cept of free­lance tal­ent.

“GoFree­lance is one such so­lu­tion that busi­nesses can take ad­van­tage of to keep up with the con­stant de­mand for tal­ent.”
