On that day, Data Consult team did great achievements! We conquered nature by climbing Ouyoun el Semen’s three peaks, we walked more than 15000 steps (7 times more than we usually walk on any given day), we burned an average of 750 calories and we cleaned the mountain by removing up to 4500 empty cartridges while enjoying spectacular views from an altitude of 2463m. All that contributed in creating beautiful and unforgettable memories as well as a great team spirit!
Our contribution to nature

We celebrated the day’s end with delicious Lebanese dishes and a toast to our next event!

Dear Valued Customer,
On behalf of Data Consult, I would like to thank you for taking the time to answer our “Smarter Backup Survey”.
Your answers gave us valuable insights as to the level of readiness and data recuperation capacity in case of a system disruption.
We would like to share with you some of the statistics gathered from this survey that could help you in planning for a better Backup Recovery System and at the same time shed light on common potential risk areas:
- 40 % of customers have experienced data loss during 2012
- 29 % of IT professionals are not confident that they can restore data in case of failure
- 38 % of IT decision makers still rely on tape for data backup
- 63 % of clients had to wait for hours after suffering from a backup failure before being fully operational
By diagnosing potential threats, we are able to suggest a number of enhancements that will help in reducing or even eliminating the risk of losing data. Needless to say, in a highly competitive environment, a loss in data can sometimes lead to serious business paralysis and substantial financial loss.
We would like to thank you for providing your input and take this opportunity to congratulate Mr. Charles Khoury from Retail Group on winning the iPad mini.
We look forward to our future collaboration.
Chantal El Khoury
Product Manager – Data Center
Dear Valuable Customers,

The BCG is by far the biggest corporate sport event in the Middle East, and it has been the case for the past 6 years; In 2013, more than 44 games will be proposed new games will be introduced. The success of BCG lays in the fact that it creates the right environment where for 2 days, employees and executives, local and international companies, get together and compete outside the corporate world, in an indescribable atmosphere with fair play, fun and team spirit. It's probably also the time where the employees feel the most connected to their company, competing to get a medal and have their company name on the podium. No wonder it has become the most anticipated corporate event in the country
