Kuwait: Ooredoo Telecom, the first to introduce innovative digital services in Kuwait, participated in the second edition of Biztech Talk hosted by Forbes Middle East in partnership with Gulf Business Machines (GBM), a leading end-to-end digital solutions provider. The digital roundtable titled “Vision 2035: Kuwait's Journey to Digitalization” took place on Tuesday, 13 October 2020 and focused on Kuwait’s aspirant strategy to turn itself into a regional financial, commercial, and cultural hub.
The world is living in a digital age where people’s daily lives are depending more and more on Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs) applications. Utilizing digital services is not leisure anymore, it is critical to stimulate economical and cultural developments. Thus, leaders in different sectors in Kuwait encourage collaboration between private and public sectors by adopting advanced digital services and solutions.
Ooredoo have started its digital journey in 2016 by building the blogs to help customers to start the journey themselves. Ooredoo gained the first-mover privilege through the acquision of ISP FASTtelco, via its Ooredoo Kuwait unit in 2016, which brought new solutions and services to businesses in the country including; high internet speed, and dedicated and multi-homed internet access with high performance and reliability levels.
In 2017, Ooredoo built its first business to business (B2B) data center in Kuwait to provide the managed services and cloud services to their customers helping them to commoditize their IT and focus on their digital initiatives from a business perspective that will positively impact their customer experience. Today, and through Ooredoo’s unparalleled digital services and solutions, they are able to attract many investment companies to start their businesses in the country which goes in line with Kuwait vision 2035, and Ooredoo’s strategy “Digitize to Differentiate” taking us towards a new digital Kuwait.

Ooredoo also offers the cloud services which are designed to simple, affordable access to data, resources, and applications, without the need for internal infrastructure or hardware.
The phenomenon of digitalization and particularly digital transformation fundamentally change the way individuals in their organizations work, it changes their mindsets and creates a culture that fosters the change. Accordingly, it is critical to provide a stable foundation in order to build this culture protecting the organization’s most valuable assets. With this in mind, Ooredoo Kuwait offers cybersecurity solutions that aim to provide corporates full-scale information and data protection solutions. Experts at Ooredoo Kuwait can tailor these services to meet the organizations’ needs today, tomorrow, and in the future, allowing them to experience advanced service levels to overcome any cybercrimes.
With the changing connectivity needs, the need for a newer generation of mobile networks raised, so the fifth-generation (5G) cellular network technology came to light. 5G technology mirrors higher data speeds at lower latency and improved data throughput to handle more synchronized connections without causing delays or disruptions. Public safety, privacy, healthcare, education, and public infrastructure are only a few of the areas where policy and regulatory modernization are essential for a 5G-ready world.
