Our Story

DTP has grown dramatically in over a decade: From an aspiring start-up offering support and integration services, we are now a 64-strong team and counting with an expanded portfolio and in-house product development.

We think of our journey in four phases: start-up, rise, growth, and transformation. Read on to discover our history and organic growth.

Start-up
DTP’s story began in 2004, when Abdul Razzak Mikati, an engineer by trade, set out to help aviation businesses improve and optimize their operational efficiency by harnessing the power of information technology.

He co-founded DTP and led a team of two programmers to provide support to Dubai International Airport’s (DXB) UFIS AODB, RMS, and FIDS systems, followed by system upgrade, expansion, and integration with new interfaces.

Growth
DTP’s exponential growth gained momentum with the winning of AODB, RMS, integration, data warehouse, business intelligence (BI), and infrastructure turnkey implementation for Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH).

This was further supplemented by the awarding of master system deployment contract for various Special Airport Solutions (AOS) in Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC), when it opened in 2013, and integration of 34 sub-systems for Emirates Airlines.

In 2015, DTP moves to a bigger office from Port Saeed to Festival City to accommodate its growing team.

Transformation
The year 2016 marked DTP's transformation from a service provider to a full-fledged technology solutions provider with the launch of its in-house product suite: DTP tNexus.

Product development sprang organically from DTP's extensive experience in integration services with major hubs and airlines in the region. With DTP tNexus, DTP aims to help airports, airlines, and ground handlers overcome the limitations of their legacy systems, by integrating disparate systems and providing smart tools and enhanced functionalities.

The partnership with Quintiq, formalized in 2018, was also a key milestone as DTP strives to offer its clients comprehensive solutions, not just in operational efficiency, but also planning optimization.

DTP relocated to a two-floor office in Business Bay by the end of 2018 to house its Dubai-based team, which has doubled in size from the previous year.
