Saudi Data and Artificial Intelligence Authority (SDAIA) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Saudi Cloud Computing Company, the leading provider of cloud computing services and digital transformation in the Kingdom, to join efforts to promote digital transformation and adopt the concept of cloud computing on a larger scale in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
This came on the sidelines of the Global Summit on Artificial Intelligence in its second edition, held at the King Abdulaziz International Conference Center in Riyadh from 13-15 September.
Assistant Director of the National Information Center for Cloud Computing, Eng. Nawaf Al-Sahan, said that digital transformation in cloud computing requires a change of concepts, adding that this partnership comes to play this important role, by establishing training programs and exchanging experts, which will enhance opportunities to hone the skills of SDAIA staff and the staff of other government agencies.
He noted that the Saudi Cloud Computing Company is the exclusive partner of Alibaba Cloud in the Kingdom, adding that this cooperation will give the ability to use Alibaba's cloud services in building and developing the SDAIA-affiliated "DEEM" cloud.
