Cisco and Intertec Systems hosted a joint event to highlight the importance of digitisation in the Internet of Things (IoT) era at the Waldorf Astoria, Ras Al Khaimah (RAK). Technology experts and senior executives from both companies provided insights on Cisco’s Data Center, Application and Collaboration solutions and held demonstrations to highlight the key features and benefits delivered by these solutions and the role they play in supporting RAK’s digital transformation initiatives. The event was attended by RAK-based government, semi-government and private sector customers representing multiple industries.
The event followed the recent signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah and Cisco Systems, which establishes a working relationship in the areas of education, commerce, healthcare and electronic government. This undertaking is a reflection of the Emirate’s commitment to continuously enhance its services to all Ras Al Khaimah residents and to provide better services to both the government and private sectors in the Emirate.
Ala’a Al-Bawab, Regional Manager, Public Sector and Oil & Gas, Cisco UAE, said, “Cisco has been working closely with the Ras Al Khaimah government around its key priorities and digitisation efforts to uncover opportunities for optimising service capabilities and to identify how faster, more precise, and more reliable information might generate new possibilities for service delivery to the public and private sectors. As part of our efforts, we want to highlight the importance of digital transformation and demonstrate how the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah could enhance the quality of life for citizens through innovative technologies. This seminar was an opportunity to drive our message to key stakeholders on the immense potential for digitisation to create a sustainable and positive impact in every area of society.”
“The main challenge that organisations face in this technology era is the management of multiple devices and different skill sets. We hosted this seminar to address the challenges faced by government and semi-government organisations in their day-to-day operations. Apart from holding presentations on Cisco’s Data Centre and Application solutions, we also demonstrated how Cisco’s collaboration solutions reduce the gap between voice and data administration, and the new Cisco Unified Computing System (USC) architecture ensures just that – a single point of management designed for IT innovation and business acceleration,” said Koshy Oommen, Director, Infrastructure and Security, Intertec Systems.
Intertec is a Cisco Gold partner and hosts regular workshops and seminars to keep customers across industries abreast of the latest trends and technologies.
