Ooredoo Renews Support for Digital Transformation at Ministry of Education and Higher Education to Develop Innovative Learning Opportunities
Ooredoo – the region’s leading enabler of digital business innovation – has announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Qatar’s Ministry of Education and Higher Education to renew its support for accelerating the digital transformation of the Ministry until 2029.
In the presence of Her Excellency the Minister of Education and Higher Education, MoU was signed by Sheikh Ali Bin Jabor Al Thani, Chief Executive Officer at Ooredoo and Dr Ibrahim Bin Saleh Al Nuaimi, the Undersecretary of the Ministry of Education and Higher Education.
Under the MoU, Ooredoo will continue to develop the Ministry’s infrastructure, schools and kindergartens using SD-WAN data centre infrastructure technology.
The renewed collaboration is in line with Ooredoo’s efforts to support the development of a world-class education system, a key goal of Qatar National Vision 2030, and the vision of the Ministry of Education and Higher Education in Qatar to achieve leadership in the provision of permanent innovative learning opportunities of the highest quality.
Sheikh Ali Bin Jabor Al Thani, CEO at Ooredoo, said: “We are delighted and proud to renew this partnership with the Ministry of Education and Higher Education, via which we continue to support the education sector in Qatar as part of our corporate social responsibility strategy, and continue our commitment to achievement of Qatar National Vision 2030. Through this collaboration, we will continue to provide the Ministry with the latest highly secure technologies that help the adoption of innovative teaching models, teaching strategies and participatory learning, and enable the focus to remain on day-to-day operations to ensure students in Qatar are offered the highest quality education.”
With the MoEHE’s renewed reliance on Ooredoo’s advanced technologies, the Ministry’s IT teams will be able to manage networks via applications rather than servers, which provide better network monitoring and insights into how such networks are used by schools. IT staff will also be able to upgrade their automation, set-up, management and self-change.
