“At Benya Capital, we are constantly challenging the industry norms in search for wider systemic effects,” commented Benya Capital Chairman and CEO Ahmed Mekky. “In a challenging and a fast-moving environment, businesses are moving towards a multi-cloud environment to achieve targeted business goals.
