Saudi Arabia’s ICT budget remains strong, despite the current climate of volatile oil prices. In fact, ICT spending is projected to surpass $35.9 billion in 2016, due to the government’s decision to invest in smart technologies and digital transformation initiatives. Country digitisation will create value for the Kingdom by delivering smart services, optimizing costs and improving process efficiencies.
The 7th Annual Kingdom Smart Government Meeting will bring together over 150 government officials (CIOs, CTOs, CISOs, Head of IT and e-Services) to collectively shape the future of smart governance in Saudi Arabia and help with procurement for their current and upcoming projects.
