Teamnet Group expands its activity in the Middle East
Bucharest, 15th September 2016 – Teamnet Group, one of the main system integrators at regional level, expands its activity in the Middle East through a project developed for the Ministry of Regional Municipality and Water Resources from Oman, in collaboration with the Modern Information Technology LLC (ITON) Group. The project, named “Ministry Core Applications and eServices Portal” aims to implement a system that will issue online municipality authorizations. Thus, the two companies will support the digitalization and optimization of over 400 types of services and 700 related procedures for fields such as public health, sanitation, constructions and water resources exploitation. On a market where IT investments this year are estimated by Gartner at 212.9 billion dollars1 at Middle East level, the solutions developed in this project have the role of contributing to the reduction of bureaucracy, the strengthening of decision transparency and the improvement of communication with citizens.
The IT sector in the Middle East is growing and Gartner specialists estimate that IT business services will represent 84% of the total segment of services in the field, while Enterprise software applications will register the highest rate of growth this year in the Middle East. However, in terms of actual investments, infrastructure software solutions will lead the top. Bringing technology in all the aspects of life is a global concern, and the Middle East is no exception from this trend, being a main target both of governments, and business sectors.
“The Teamnet entrance in this region, as well as the expansion in all the markets where we operate is a result of the work of 15 years of our team from Romania and of international level in developing competitive solutions, globally recognized. Although we are at the beginning in certain countries, as is the case for Oman, in a highly-competitive global IT market, we estimate growing results at international level for Teamnet this year by 70 %, compared to 2015,”, declared Bogdan Padiu, Teamnet Group CEO.
Ali bin Mohammed al Abri, Under-Secretary within the Ministry of Regional Municipality and Water Resources declared: “The agreement comes as a result of the efforts made by the Government to implement e-services that would facilitate the relationship with the citizens. Over 400 types of services and 700 related procedures shall be provided electronically.” Dr Salim bin Sultan al Ruzaiqi, CEO of the Information Technology Authority (ITA), also pointed out the importance of this project, which serves a large number of citizens and companies.
Teamnet will develop the central system of the project, consisting of: Water Resource System, Technical Services System, Health Control System, Atlas GIS Services, as well as maintenance and support services and, furthermore, it shall manage the data migration process. Modern Information Technology LLC, project leader, will work on implementing the eServices portal, Case Management, Mobile Application, delivering hardware equipment and licenses, data migration and support and maintenance services.
