Meet up to 150 IT decision makers from the Saudi Arabian public and private sectors under one roof.
Saudi Arabia’s IT sector has always had high aspirations, whether in attracting the best talent and software provision or securing its place on the global stage through such programs as Vision 2030.
The desire to compete has been heavily backed by the Saudi Government, but this year looks to be the true beginning of a collaborative effort between the private sector and the government’s investment funds, hoping to make the strides necessary to reach regional goals.
Spending is expected to rise to around $33.8 billion in the next year, an indisputably giant budget fully capable of drawing the absolute best, cutting edge technologies to drive technological transformation in the Kingdom.
This seemingly newfound urgency to compete on the global stage stems not only from government agencies, who account for a large portion of investments being made into the IT sector, but also from the private sector who are seeing the benefits that smart solutions are bringing to multiple industries, just as the oil industry found with the addition of IoT solutions applied to extraction methods in the region.
As smart technology solutions make their way through the region’s businesses ranging from education, healthcare, manufacturing and retail, smart transformation needs are at their utmost importance within the new budget breakdown.
The smart transformation summit, an evolution of 7 years of hosting the e-government summit, is designed to enable government agencies and private sector stakeholders gain direct access to leading IT vendors to discuss the best in smart solutions to the problems of today and beyond.
Met with the right people who require our solutions, we should be doing business for sure. Will definitely be here for the next year.KSA Country Manager, Axios Systems
