US tech giant Oracle and Abu Dhabi-based digital transformation company Injazat have entered into a partnership agreement to accelerate cloud adoption and innovation across the federal government and Abu Dhabi’s local government entities.
Following the agreement, a dedicated Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Dedicated Region will be created within Injazat’s data centres to provide the local entities access to Oracle cloud applications and infrastructure services in compliance with the highest regulatory requirements.
The partnership was inked during the Oracle CloudWorld Tour Abu Dhabi, which is held by Oracle in association with Abu Dhabi’s Department of Economic Development, and the UAE Cybersecurity Council.
“In today’s rapidly evolving tech landscape, embracing partnerships with leading global technology providers, and enabling their localisation have become a key priority for businesses and governments,” said Mansoor Al Mansoori, Chairman, Injazat.
“This partnership is a testament to our commitment to meeting this need while continuing to spearhead innovation in digital transformation for the UAE government,” Al Mansoori noted.
Ussama Dahabiyeh, CEO, Injazat, said the partnership reaffirms the company’s role as a key national digital transformation player through its comprehensive offerings including multi-cloud, system integration, platform development, cybersecurity, and venture expertise.
“We are proud to partner with Oracle to develop Injazat’s Dedicated Region to provide customers with key Oracle services they have depended on for years, now enhanced through a cloud platform that abides by local laws and regulations.”
Nick Redshaw, senior vice president, cloud technology, and UAE country leader, Oracle, noted the US firm is fully committed to helping Abu Dhabi and the UAE achieve development goals by leveraging the latest cloud-powered digital technologies.
“After establishing two public cloud regions in the UAE in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, we now want to explore a collaboration with Injazat to help its customers gain access to the most flexible and innovative cloud solutions that meet the most demanding data residency requirements.
We will be collaborating with Injazat to establish a Center of Excellence that should elevate the service level and focus on innovation that will unlock substantial growth potential across the region,” Redshaw said.
