Vendor independent Storage Advisor, Brouwer Storage Consultancy (BSC), has qualified to participate in  the first ICT trade mission to Saudi Arabia. The mission, initiated by the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, will take place May 14-18, 2011. The participants will meet with the major ministries in the Kingdom that deal with ICT. In the largest country of the gulf region, internet penetration is expected to grow 20 to 30% per year, while the ICT market as a whole is expected to grow to 5 billion dollars in 2012. The mission is intended for suppliers of ICT solutions for the public sector.

Royal Dutch Shell has a 34% participation. French Total (4%) and Portuguese Partex (2%) own the rest. PDO produces oil and liquid gas. PDO is the second largest ICT player in the Middle East.

BSC has also advised a Japanese company in the development and marketing of Solid State Disk products . In the Netherlands BSC is active in the healthcare, energy, finance, and central government sectors.
