Kuwait Times - - TECHNOLOGY -

With the theme “An Em­pow­ered Gov­ern­ment”, Mi­crosoft has an­nounced its par­tic­i­pa­tion as plat­inum spon­sor at the 4th EGovern­ment Fo­rum for Elec­tronic Ser­vices Per­spec­tive, due to be held from the 27th to 29th of Novem­ber at the Mar­riott Court­yard, Kuwait. Charles Na­has, Gen­eral Man­ager Mi­crosoft Kuwait com­mented, “The theme de­rives from the com­pany’s strat­egy to drive Digital Trans­for­ma­tion across all gov­ern­ment en­ti­ties in Kuwait to launch ad­vanced digital ser­vices and ap­pli­ca­tions to the Kuwaiti ci­ti­zens.

We be­lieve that EGOV4 will achieve its ob­jec­tives, es­pe­cially with the high level of sup­port that is rep­re­sented by the pa­tron­age of His High­ness the Prime Min­is­ter Sheikh Jaber Mubarak Al-Ha­mad Al-Sabah. We are also pleased to be closely work­ing with NoufEXPO and CAIT to en­sure suc­cess of EGOV4.”

The Fo­rum and expo will fo­cus on trans­for­ma­tional e-Ser­vices as the ba­sic e-Gov­ern­ment pro­gram de­liv­er­able and will dis­cuss all as­pects re­lated it; from plan­ning till de­ploy­ment and con­tin­u­ous im­prove­ment. At­ten­dees from di­verse gov­ern­ment agen­cies will gather at the event to en­gage with ex­perts on board, to dis­cuss im­ple­men­ta­tion e-ser­vices and is­sues in the gov­ern­ment sec­tor. Also, Mi­crosoft will de­liver dif­fer­ent ses­sions and live demos around Elec­tronic Cor­re­spon­dence Man­age­ment Sys­tem with Digital Sig­na­ture as per the gov­ern­ment elec­tronic law in­te­grated with the Pub­lic Au­thor­ity for Civil In­for­ma­tion (Elec­tronic Cor­re­spon­dences, Sig­na­tures and Ac­cred­i­ta­tions Sys­tem) and the Smart Help Desk Sys­tem as per the lat­est gov­er­nance rec­om­men­da­tions from the Cen­tral Agency of In­for­ma­tion and Tech­nol­ogy (the Smart Help Desk Sys­tem).

Mi­crosoft’s Regional Gen­eral Man­ager Pub­lic Sec­tor / Mid­dle East & Africa, Sayed Hashish will de­liver a key­note speech, dis­cussing about how dig­i­tized ser­vices within gov­ern­ment bod­ies can help ac­cel­er­ate and drive wide­spread changes in the tech­nol­ogy in­fras­truc­ture across Kuwait.

Com­ment­ing on this par­tic­i­pa­tion, Gen­eral Man­ager Mi­crosoft Kuwait said, “Del­e­gates vis­it­ing the Mi­crosoft Stand in the expo area, will get the op­por­tu­nity to ex­pe­ri­ence a show­case of so­lu­tions in­clud­ing Azure, Power BI an­a­lyt­ics, IoT fol­lowed by in­sight­ful demon­stra­tions around how the Mi­crosoft Digital Trans­for­ma­tion frame­work de­liv­ers im­pact for gov­ern­ments, em­pow­er­ing them to drive growth, in­no­va­tion and pro­duc­tiv­ity. An­chored on its ‘sys­tems of in­tel­li­gence’, the Mi­crosoft’s so­lu­tions built around four pil­lars of digital trans­for­ma­tion will demon­strate how gov­ern­ments can ef­fec­tively - en­gage with ci­ti­zens, em­power em­ploy­ees, op­ti­mize op­er­a­tions, and trans­form gov­ern­ment ser­vices.”

Ef­fi­cient e-ser­vices

Na­has added, “This is the era of dig­i­ti­za­tion and the speed at which tech­nol­ogy is per­me­at­ing our lives, is fas­ci­nat­ing. We, at Mi­crosoft are thrilled by the part­ner­ship with gov­ern­ment en­ti­ties to take full ad­van­tage of our lat­est in­no­va­tions and tech­nolo­gies built on the Mi­crosoft e-gov­ern­ment frame­work, sup­ported by an ex­pert ecosys­tem of gov­ern­ment ser­vice part­ners. Our par­tic­i­pa­tion in EGOV4 fo­rum pays tes­ta­ment to Mi­crosoft’s in­creased ef­forts to­wards en­abling Kuwait’s gov­ern­ment at­tain ef­fi­cient es­er­vices while im­prov­ing pro­duc­tiv­ity and ef­fec­tive­ness to do more and achieve more, for the ci­ti­zens they serve”.

Mi­crosoft, with its in­no­va­tive so­lu­tions and cloud ser­vices, has con­tin­ued to be a strong ad­vo­cate for mod­ern­iza­tion of the lo­cal gov­ern­ment bod­ies and re­it­er­ates its com­mit­ment of em­pow­er­ing gov­ern­ment bod­ies by a pro­vid­ing a flex­i­ble, low cost and scal­able plat­form that al­lows op­ti­miza­tion of re­sources through e-ser­vices, en­abling em­ploy­ees to boost ser­vice delivery

and cit­i­zen en­gage­ment. An Ac­cen­ture re­search states that digital trans­for­ma­tion of ser­vices have a sig­nif­i­cant pos­i­tive im­pact on a coun­try’s econ­omy, com­pet­i­tive­ness and in­no­va­tion; re­duc­ing back of­fice costs to 45 per­cent. It also high­lights that a 1 per­cent in­crease in dig­i­ti­za­tion can re­sult in 0.5 per­cent GDP gain, and a 1.9 per­cent gain in in­ter­na­tional trade.

“Gov­ern­ments are at a piv­otal junc­ture where they have the op­por­tu­nity to drive true pub­lic ser­vice trans­for­ma­tion through digital tech­nolo­gies. We aim to en­able gov­ern­ment agen­cies achieve this ob­jec­tive through stream­lin­ing pro­cesses; keep­ing up with the de­mands of digital na­tives through in­no­va­tive tools that pro­vide pub­lic ser­vices of the fu­ture,” said Na­has.
