Following SAP’s recent announcement that it is investing SAR285m ($76m) to create a public innovation cloud hub in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the company has revealed that it is supporting the nation’s digital transformation through a cloud initiative.
The SAP Cloud Hub will be established in collaboration with the Saudi Ministry of Communication and Information Technology, to help deliver the Saudi Vision 2030 and the National Transformation Programme (NTP) 2020.
Ahmed Al-Faifi, managing director at SAP Saudi Arabia, Yemen, and Bahrain, said driving cloud solutions will be SAP’s key goal in Saudi Arabia in 2017 where it wants to support public and private sector Saudi organisations.
Al-Faifi said SAP sees five main areas for its technologies in Saudi Arabia: the cross channel citizen experience; supplier collaboration business networks; time digital core technology; workforce engagement, and delivering big data across the internet of things (IoT).
