Saudi Telecommunications (STC) have entered into a partnership with Oracle in a bid to provide government and private organizations with latest cloud computing services. Proponents of the deal claim that both sectors will benefit with high data storage and security solutions that aim to digitally transform businesses in Saudi Arabia.

According to STC, this alliance is a step taken to meet the Saudi government’s 2030 vision of digital change by capitalizing on the power of the cloud. They further added that by focusing on SMEs, they will deliver cloud solutions and services which will increase the productivity of these organizations.

Looking forward to this collaboration, Dr. Tariq Enaya, Senior Vice President at STC Enterprise, commented:

This agreement is a unique and non-traditional partnership. It is counted to be a move for both the companies and the IT sector in the Kingdom as well. It is important to achieve the Kingdom and private sector’s goal of digital transformation, in line with the objectives of the 2030 vision, which focused on the transformation of global technologies, data, and broadband expansion.(…).Provide different sectors with an internal option similar to the best global experiences in this regard.

In closing, STC added that they plan to flag off this vision by building data centers in Riyadh and Jeddah, to bring their 2030 vision to fruition.
