Siemens launches regional digitalisation roadshow
Show brings together government, private sector and education to develop a roadmap for digitalisation in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Kuwait city and Doha
Siemens has launched a digitalisation roadshow across the Middle East, bringing together leaders from government, private sector and education to develop a roadmap for digitalisation implementation. In partnership with GMIS, Atos, Indish Technologies and Strategy&, the first two roadshows will take place in the UAE, followed by events in Kuwait, Qatar and Egypt.
“Digitalisation goes far beyond technology; it’s a broad ecosystem encompassing innovation, education, skill development, strategy and investment, in both public and private sectors,” said Dietmar Siersdorfer, CEO, Siemens Middle East and UAE. “We are building a cross-sector platform for key stakeholders to identify opportunities, address challenges and share knowledge, ultimately developing a roadmap for digitalization implementation in the Middle East.”
The roadshows will examine the regional impact of digitalisation technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), the Digital Enterprise, Cyber Security and Additive Manufacturing, and investigate the relevant implementation strategies. Representatives from education, government and private sector will also discuss topics related to the wider digitalization ecosystem including skills, research and development, partnership-building and investment.
The first roadshow, held in Dubai on May 3, will see leaders from aerospace, education, smart city technology, infrastructure and data management consider the digitalization landscape in the GCC, and identify specific ways in which digitalization can create value locally. They will also take a closer look at digitalization from the perspective of the practitioner.
Siemens applies digitalisation technologies across all of the company’s key sectors, including energy, transport, smart buildings and industry, to increase efficiency, productivity, reliability and quality. In the Middle East, Siemens is committed to using digitalization in support of strong, diverse and globally competitive economies, partnering with regional organizations to create local value.
