Government Partner: Taibah Valley
Government Partner: Information Technology Authority, Sultanate of Oman
Oman has begun its digital society journey since 2003 with the approval of the e.Oman strategy by the Cabinet. This was based on the realization that Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has an increasingly profound impact on the socio-economic and cultural aspects of the society, businesses and Government. The strategic pillars and the implementation plans of the e.oman Strategy are focused on the capacity and skills development of the society and ICT professionals as they represent the ultimate beneficiaries and implementation workforce. Together, they drive the demand and supply sides of the knowledge economy.
The pillars also focus on the development of a growing ICT industry to support the digital transformation using Omani capabilities as well as developing the national infrastructure. This is supported via unifying the ICT standards adopted by the government and ensuring that Government systems and services utilize the common infrastructure and shared services established by ITA. With respect to eGovernment, ITA developed the Government eTransformation plan to ensure that all Government entities partake in the Government digital transformation and assume ownership of their own entities’ transformation efforts in alignment with national targets and goals as approved by the Cabinet. This includes offering services online and changing the processes and procedures while eliminating unnecessary steps
