CIO signs key IT accord with Almoayyed
Manama, July 15, 2010
The Central Informatics Organisation (CIO) has signed a convention with Almoayyed Computers to provide the government with Microsoft services.
The agreement will see Almoayyed provide Microsoft licences and services and technical and human support to all government institutions covered by the convention over the next three years.
It was signed by CIO president Dr Mohammed bin Ahmed Al Amer and Almoayyed Company executive vice-president Mohammed Almoayyed.
CIO Information Technology department general director Shaikh Salman bin Mohammed Al Khalifa and Microsoft Bahrain general manager Badei Esbaei were present at the signing.
It meant the activation of a convention signed by the CIO earlier on behalf of the kingdom's government with Microsoft.
This included the renewal of the company's software licences in the information technology field to provide all services related to information systems for all state institutions.
Shaikh Salman said the main objective of signing the agreement is to reduce the gap in technology and give access to different information technology frameworks in all ministries and institutions.
'Almoayyed Computers is one of the leading companies in the Middle East in terms of the presentation of various solutions for information technology and communications through its ongoing collaboration with international companies led by Microsoft,' said Almoayyed.
'Microsoft is committed to the Bahrain government's vision and the continuing evolution, and with this convention we demonstrate our commitment to the long term by providing cutting edge technology to advance the success and development in the kingdom,' Esbaei said.-TradeArabia News Service
