VMware has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Aramco to support collaboration across cloud and end-user computing, cybersecurity, and digital transformation in the areas of energy and green technologies.
The MoU was signed at the LEAP technology event in Riyadh.
Aramco, which has been innovating with VMware since 2016, has already utilised VMware cloud solutions which have been instrumental in enhancing end-user computing solutions for the energy sector.
The two companies plan to collaborate in the exchange of ideas and expertise, exploring the potential to innovate in areas including software enhancements to be used by organisations in the region and around the world.
The collaboration is expected to strengthen and increase local procurement. It also aims to be a role model for digital best practice in Saudi Arabia, and to help encourage digital transformation efforts across the energy sector.
“Aramco is showing how energy companies use digital solutions to optimise operations, boost innovation, and improve employee experiences”, said Saif Mashat, Country Director, Saudi Arabia, VMware.
He added: “We’re delighted to help accelerate the pace of innovation and meet the sector’s specific cloud, end-user computing, and security demands of the future”.
