Injazat Data Systems (Injazat) and MDC Business Management Services (MDC-BMS), along with Mubadala Investment Company’s Enterprise Technology Services division, have announced the establishing of ‘Project Tarabot’.
The joint initiative for building a Hybrid Cloud Platform in Abu Dhabi for the Mubadala Group of Companies.
The Hybrid Cloud platform will be aligned to the principle of in-country data sovereignty and will involve a Hybrid of cloud enabling platform technologies from key global vendors.
Project Tarabot will not only enable over 25+ MDC-BMS’ existing clients and other Mubadala Group companies to maximise the Hybrid Cloud Platform but also allow them to deploy new IT services faster, and expand their scope of services to the end-users in a scalable and efficient manner.
The project shall introduce a transparent consumption based model of ‘Pay As You Go’ for the platform utilisation, ease the CIOs and IT Heads from making IT related capital expenditure commitments and allow them to focus on delivering business aligned IT strategic initiatives for their respective organisations.
Project Tarabot will be executed in various phases over 2018 and 2019.
Khaled Al Melhi, Chief Executive Officer of Injazat, said, “Project Tarabot demonstrates how this partnership with MDC-BMS and Mubadala will foster the implementation of advanced technologies to enable organisations to function more efficiently in terms of time, resources and finances. At Injazat, we look forward to growing our UAE operations with this partnership that provides many organisational benefits across the Mubadala Group.”
Mansour Al Ketbi, Chief Information Officer, Mubadala, said, “As a globally diversified organisation that works across multiple sectors and markets, establishing a standardized delivery mechanism and ability to deploy IT solutions aligned to the agile business needs in a faster way is critical to our success. Project Tarabot is a significant component of this strategy, and it will leverage the expertise from both Injazat and MDC-BMS. We are confident that this initiative will contribute to our ambitious growth plans.”
Project Tarabot shall lay a solid foundation targeting value creation, faster go-to-market and reduction in total cost of ownership to the Mubadala Group by maximising utilisation of the central platform. It will also facilitate MDC-BMS to expand the shared services offering and help bring in the global partnerships with key global IT vendors for engagements in futuristic technologies like block chain, artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality and other capabilities of digitisation for the Mubadala Group.
