Digital
transformation (DX) will remain a prime objective for the public sector with
the entrants of new technologies steering away legacy systems providing value
potentials, ease, convenience and improved methods to effectively deal with
citizens providing them convenience and transparency of government services.

 

Government DX Summit is
Saudi Arabia’s most diverse digital transformation conference taking place on 5 – 6 November 2019 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The summit
emphasizes on driving digital initiatives to achieve Vision 2030 and beyond. It
addresses the significance of the Vision’s theme focusing on achieving
government operational excellence as a pillar to drive digital transformation.
It is set to host some of the most influential government tech and strategic
thought leaders, investors and entrepreneurs addressing the digital journey and
how achieving operational excellence in the public sector matters to citizen’s
satisfaction and economic prosperity.

 

Under the
leadership of the Saudi Government, Vision 2030 was created to fulfil a roadmap
for economic growth and national development. Dr. Adnan Mustafa AlBar,
Vice Chairman of the Jeddah Municipality City Council mentions: “With
the leadership of the Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman who has a clear vision
and is driving the whole country’s transformation, the Saudi Vision 2030 has
effectively open doors to the world promoting the Kingdom as the next big
digital powerhouse not just in the Arab and Islamic world, but it has become a
global digital identity.”

 

Speaking
about the conference Dr. Adnan Mustafa AlBar said: “The Government DX
Summit is a key event to attend where you will learn and discuss with local and
international experts in Government Digital Transformation and how Saudi Arabia
is effectively achieving the vision and the NTP plan.”

 

Dr. Fatmah
Baothman
, Doctor of Artificial Intelligence with
King Abdulaziz University from the College of Computing and Information
Technology
highlights: “The adoption of artificial intelligence will bring
massive reforms to Saudi Arabia’s digital journey to achieve Vision 2030. Over
82% of Saudi businesses will have AI deployed by 2020. We have seen a paradigm
shift in the acceptance of AI and RPA since 2017 where over 94% of Saudi
businesses did not favour its adoption to the current analysis forecasted for
2020 showing 82% are favouring the adoption of AI and RPA with 95% intending to
embrace AI implementation until 2025. AI is no longer a doubt instead it is now
the new norm of urgency to embrace it. By 2030, AI will contribute over US$ 320
Billion to the Middle East’s GDP with Saudi Arabia to gain over US$ 48 Billion
from AI. The public sector will be one of the major achievers with AI adoption
and its strategy. The Government DX Summit is the ideal platform to know
more about Saudi Arabia’s role in transforming into an AI-powered society.
There is a global responsibility to develop an AI model for improving the
world. We need to define the mission for all humans supported by a vision of
technology. This must attend summit will highlight key factors about achieving
the Vision 2030 to drive digital transformation across the Kingdom.”

 

Bringing his experience to the
conference’s speaker roster, Eng. Mohammed Mahnashi, Information
Technology Advisor at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Saudi Arabia
mentions: “By 2021, the global DX investments are
forecasted to reach US$ 5.9 trillion where Saudi Arabia is ambitiously working
along the adoption of the National Transformation Program to execute Vision
2030 creating new digital technology investment opportunities. I will be speaking
at the Government DX Summit and we will provide a holistic view of the digital
technologies that Saudi Arabia will reap benefits from and what are to be
invested in the country to prosper into an ironic digital economy. I urge
professionals from across the world not to miss this high-profile must attend
conference.”

 

Saudi Arabia vows to revolutionize
their financial systems by using Blockchain to integrate the system across the
government entities as per the Vision 2030.

strategy is key to ensure an efficient financial services culture across all
industries in the Kingdom. Representing the healthcare sector, the adoption of
blockchain in the health industry globally is expected to hit US$ 5.61 billion
