Dell EMC to support Saudi Arabia’s digital economy acceleration

Mohamed Talaat Vice PresidenDell EMC has hosted Dell EMC Forum in Saudi Arabia, aiming to facilitate the economic directives of Vision 2030 for the betterment of the people and community across the kingdom

Mohammed Amin, senior vice-president of Dell EMC for the Middle East, Turkey and Africa, discussed the importance of fostering public-private partnerships and increasing the employment rate to advance the national vision.

In addition, addressing information technology as an enabler, facilitator and accelerator of the transformation envisioned by Vision 2030, he highlighted the need to adopt new technologies and most importantly, invest in new skill sets to drive the vision for the kingdom’s digital future.

According to a survey by Dell Technologies, across 16 countries and 12 industries including the UAE and Saudi Arabia, indicate that about four per cent of organisations surveyed have implemented digital transformation initiatives and can be deemed as digital leaders. This points to a bigger issue that although digital transformation is central to meet the regional digital agenda, it is not yet a strategic pillar to many organisations across the UAE and Saudi Arabia.

In light of this, the Dell EMC Forum 2017 focuses on driving IT transformation with Dell EMC Ready solutions to workforce and security transformation and highlighting the Dell EMC internet of things strategy.

The forum further addressed major areas of improvement across various core sectors in Saudi Arabia. It aimed at providing a platform to enable organisations to resolve pressing business and IT challenges in the public, financial services, energy, education and SME sectors through the adoption of advanced technologies.

Mohamed Talaat, vice-president of Dell EMC for Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Libya and Levant, said, “It is imperative for organisations in the Kingdom to make digitisation central to their business strategies, which is essential in achieving the larger objective of our ambitious vision, that is, to drive innovation and sustainable economic growth. Only then can the Kingdom create an environment that fosters talent, high levels of innovation and ensures the betterment of our people and community.”
