The Saudi Data and Artificial Intelligence Authority (SDAIA) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Saudi Cloud Computing Company, the leading provider of cloud computing services and digital transformation in the Kingdom, to join efforts to promote digital transformation and adopt the concept of cloud computing on a larger scale in the Kingdom.


This came on the sidelines of the Global Summit on Artificial Intelligence in its second edition, held at the King Abdulaziz International Conference Center in Riyadh from 13-15 September, the Saudi Press Agency reported.


Assistant Director of the National Information Center for Cloud Computing Eng. Nawaf Al-Sahan said that digital transformation in cloud computing requires a change of concepts, adding that this partnership comes to play this important role, by establishing training programs and exchanging experts, which will enhance opportunities to improve the skills of SDAIA staff and the staff of other government agencies.


SPA quoted him as saying that the Saudi Cloud Computing Company is the exclusive partner of Alibaba Cloud in the Kingdom.


He added that this cooperation will give the ability to use Alibaba's cloud services in building and developing the SDAIA-affiliated "DEEM" cloud.
