Or­ga­nized by NoufEXPO in col­lab­o­ra­tion with CAIT

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

NoufEXPO an­nounced the con­ven­ing of the ‘5th E-Gov­ern­ment Fo­rum - Dig­i­tal Trans­for­ma­tion’ in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Cen­tral Agency for In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy (CAIT) from 5 - 7 Novem­ber 2017 at Ar­raya Ball­room of Court­yard Mar­riott ho­tel. EGOV5 is set to be held un­der the aus­pices of His High­ness the Prime Min­is­ter Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Ha­mad AlSabah. This high level gov­ern­men­tal sup­port and pa­tron­age made EGOV a man­i­fes­ta­tion of Kuwait’s trans­for­ma­tion to­wards build­ing the in­for­ma­tion based so­ci­ety. EGOV-fea­tured top­ics and tech­nolo­gies have al­ways helped gov­ern­ment de­part­ments in Kuwait build their dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion plans and set their roadmaps for an ad­vanced fu­tur­is­tic e-ser­vices era.

Dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion

EGOV5 will fo­cus on Dig­i­tal Trans­for­ma­tion as the jour­ney that gov­ern­ment agen­cies should un­dergo to be able to achieve the ob­jec­tives of their e-gov­ern­ment pro­grams as set by the gov­ern­ment. EGOV5 will dis­cuss the ba­sic char­ac­ter­is­tics of dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion, its re­quire­ments, its suc­cess fac­tors, and the pit­falls or risks that need to be con­sid­ered and mit­i­gated along the way. EGOV5 will also dis­cuss the new tech­no­log­i­cal phe­nom­ena and their im­pact on dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion plans of en­ter­prises. No doubt, dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion is a manda­tory path that all pub­lic and pri­vate en­ter­prises alike should pur­sue to en­sure con­ti­nu­ity and growth.

Dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion can be de­scribed as the ac­cel­er­a­tion of busi­ness ac­tiv­i­ties, pro­cesses, com­pe­ten­cies, and models to fully lever­age the changes and op­por­tu­ni­ties of dig­i­tal tech­nolo­gies and their im­pact in a strate­gic and pri­or­i­tized way. Re­gard­less of the many def­i­ni­tions or de­scrip­tions that dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion might have, the real value that ev­ery­body seeks is to im­prove busi­ness out­come. This is true whether the or­ga­ni­za­tion is a gov­ern­ment de­part­ment or a pri­vate sec­tor en­ter­prise.

A NoufEXPO spokesman said that EGOV5 open­ing cer­e­mony will wit­ness the an­nounce­ment of the re­sults of the E-Ser­vices Ex­cel­lence Award. CAIT started this ini­tia­tive dur­ing the open­ing cer­e­mony of EGOV4 last year for the first time. The Award boosts e-gov­ern­ment ini­tia­tives of Kuwait’s gov­ern­ment agen­cies and en­cour­ages th­ese agen­cies to im­ple­ment a speedy, yet co­or­di­nated, e-Ser­vices de­vel­op­ment ef­fort. The E-Ser­vices Ex­cel­lence Award is granted to the gov­ern­ment agency that de­ploys the best ESer­vice on Kuwait elec­tronic por­tal ( ac­cord­ing to the cri­te­ria that CAIT sets for this Award.

Lead­ing ven­dors

The NoufEXPO spokesman con­cluded his state­ment by say­ing EGOV, and since its first round in 2013, hosted many world-class lead­ing tech­nol­ogy ven­dors like Mi­crosoft, IBM, EMC, CISCO, Sy­man­tec, FireEye, EY, Aruba, and many oth­ers as well as ma­jor Kuwaiti en­ter­prises such as VIVA, Al­ghanim In­dus­tries, KFH, KNET, and oth­ers. More­over, EGOV fea­tures the par­tic­i­pa­tion of many gov­ern­ment IT De­part­ments that demon­strate their e-Ser­vices and eGovern­ment plans. EGOV5’s Sci­en­tific Com­mit­tee, as well as other or­ga­niz­ing com­mit­tees, is fi­nal­iz­ing EGOV5’s pro­gram and pro­ceed­ings. We urge all in­ter­ested tech­nol­ogy ven­dors and spe­cial­ists to con­tact the Sci­en­tific Com­mit­tee or NoufEXPO on +965 22469921 or send their mes­sages to in or­der to re­serve their spot in this unique tech­nol­ogy event.
