Interview with CEO
In Press Meeting with Eng.kaml Al madhoun, CEO of Nazil Alwatania group on e-learning sector.
How is Nazil Alwatania group positioning itself within the digital transformation of the Kingdom?
Since 2010, Nazil has been acting as a system integrator, having developed more than 1,400 e-services for various agencies, from traning centers to universities and hospitals, as part of the country’s digital transformation. More recently, we have a hand in developing the educational sector throw large learning mangment systems . With Vision 2030 and NTP 2.0, the government is investing a lot of capital in building a solid infrastructure. One of the main focuses in this sense has been cloud computing, and we seek to take advantage of this trend to act as a migrator for both organisations and small traning center . At the same time, we are making considerable efforts to develop new partnerships with local and international players to introduce security products to the market. There is an urgent need to protect access to data and reduce the adverse effects because external actors constantly threaten Saudi cyber infrastructure. As far as 2019 is concerned, we expect to expand internationally, grow our business, serve a new customer base, and continue building many partnerships with vendors, suppliers, and clients.
Within these three business units, how do you expect demand to evolve in the short to medium term, and what trends will drive this evolution?
In the educational arena, there is definitely a push from a regulatory perspective, with lot of focus coming from the Saudi Educational Initiative, and from companies interested in entering that market. The authorities are pushing educational orgnizations to move toward a e-learning society and learning managment systems and upgrading them to reach the global standards, and all these initiatives will intensify the market. At NAZIL, there is a strong willingness to enter this market, since even the enterprise companies need to upgrade their systems to cope with new technology trends.
