This presentation will describe how Emmanuel and his company Intelance, collaborated with Microsoft and its other ecosystem of partners, to work with the Government of Qatar, to utilise Microsoft Cloud's infrastructure and digital ecosystem of solutions, to support Qatar's National Vision 2030.


The government-backed initiative aims to:

o   build Qatar into a modern, diversified and sustainable economy that can support domestic aspirations and compete on the global stage

o   accelerate digital transformation and innovation in public and private enterprises across the entire country to also attract foreign investments

o   ultimately making Qatar a digital hub for the middle eastern region and the rest of the world

Attracting and developing talent to empower every person in Qatar to achieve more was one of the main objectives of this collaboration. From students to job seekers, to developers, to IT Professionals, to start-ups, and partners with no one left behind – expanding access to the digital skills needed to drive a vibrant and diverse knowledge economy.

The key goal is to bring Qatar talents into the technology sector and ensure the readiness of the current and future workforce to fully harness the power of the cloud.

Cloud adoption, alone, is expected to generate 24,000 jobs in the country by 2024, making a significant impact on the country's GDP and supporting the government's efforts to develop and attract top talent.

This initiative is enabling industry in Qatar to thrive in the new normal. Qatar's other major transformation projects (e.g. FIFA World Cup 2022, Qatar global sports hub vision, TASMU, a unique advanced smart city program that will transform key industry sectors, and Tawteen, a program that will digitally transform and create local investment opportunities for the energy sector) will not be possible without an intelligent digital infrastructure serving as a catalyst to accelerate this transformation, innovation providing data residency, and advanced cloud services like Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things (IoT).
