Oman Data Park, the Sultanate’s IT-managed services and cloud services provider, signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Dell Technologies, initiating a landmark project to provide Professional Services as a Service to its customers. This collaboration is a step towards amplifying digital transformation initiatives across Oman with speed, efficiency and effectiveness.
The MoU was signed at COMEX Technology Show by Eng Maqbool Al Wahaibi, CEO of Oman Data Park and Havier Haddad, General Manager Gulf at Dell Technologies, further strengthening their existing seven-year-old partnership.
COMEX is one of Oman’s premium ICT exhibitions, held annually under the patronage of the Information Technology Authority. It is designed to offer organisations access to futuristic tools, smart technologies and IT and communication solutions.
The three-day exhibition held in March at the Oman Convention and Exhibition Centre focuses on the role of technology and security in the sectors of Manufacturing, Transport and Logistics, Oil and Gas, Tourism, Healthcare and Education – which are key industries identified in Oman’s Vision 2020.
Oman’s Vision 2020 and Vision 2040 mandates a seamless transition to a knowledge-based information society with digital transformation at its core. Achieving this requires organisations, regardless of their size, to expand their business capabilities and deliver more value to their customers in an agile and secure way. In order to translate this objective into reality, Oman Data Park aims to assist organisations with their advancement of software technologies as a part of their digital transformation to provide more advanced products and services to their customers.
To this end, Oman Data Park will collaborate with Dell Technologies to help facilitate provision of PSaaS to their customers. Dell Technologies will address the diverse needs of this project by providing Oman Data Park with strategic expertise, training and proven practical capabilities in this area of interest.
Dell Technologies’ consulting and support services are developed to help achieve the desired business outcomes by offering choice, flexibility, scale, speed and purpose. Continuing their longstanding partnership, Oman Data Park and Dell Technologies will help enable organisations in the Sultanate take a quantum leap forward in enabling digital transformation.
