It was 2003 when a small IT firm, with the founder and an IT Developer, was founded by a Bahraini IT specialist, who is a graduate of Computer Science from the University of Bahrain, 1999. The small firm was established within the premises of the Business Incubator of the Ministry of Industry and Commerce, Bahrain, in Hidd City.
With a visionary eye, the founder, Jaleel Al Sharaf, decided to call his small firm: IDEAS, which stands for: Innovative Development of Enterprise Applications and Solutions.
Six months later, IDEAS shifted its office away from the incubator, trying to get closer to the business area in the capital; Manama, after it was successful in building a good reputation in the market in a very short time.
Between the years 2003 and 2007, IDEAS, under the leadership of its founder, managed to secure an advanced position in the local market of Bahrain by relying on its talented team of national experts and the international alliances with the world big names in the Information Technology industry.
In year 2008, Sharaf managed to turn the page of the small firm to open the new page of IDEAS HOLDING GROUP, which is an umbrella that shades a number of specialized business units complementing each others to provide the market with Total Business Solutions characterized by uniqueness, comprehensiveness, simplicity and innovation, through its pole of expertise.
At present, IDEAS HOLDING GROUP specilized in Software Development, Software Consultancy, Mobile App Development, Network Infrastructure, Information Security, Creativity & Media and Training Solution & Services.
Since its establishment, ideas has been awarded several national and regional awards, among of which comes: King Hamad Performance Excellence Award 2006, Bahrain; Bahrain e-Content Award 2005, 2007, and 2009 (several client projects); Sawaed Award 2009 for the Best Project in the Arab World and Best Business in the Arab World Award 2010 by Sh.
