The Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq) has penned an agreement with Mubadala-subsidiary Injazat to introduce its IT services to private, public and banking clients in Sharjah, it was announced on Wednesday.
As part of the agreement, Injazat – which is wholly owned by Mubadala – will support Sharjah businesses with a number of IT products and infrastructure services and help implement systems, as well as serve in an advisory capacity.
“Sharjah is experiencing an unprecedented digital revolution in the delivery of world-class services to private sector businesses, government departments and the emirate’s residents,” said Shurooq executive chairman Marwan bin Jassim Al Sarkal.
“AD Injazat will complement the emirate’s digital transformation vision and will play a strategic role in introducing its expertise in the local technology sector.”
The announcement comes approximately one month after Injazat established a new sales office at Emirates Towers in Dubai, which the company said was set up to help support the IT needs of the government’s vision for a digitally-led future.
“We view our work with Shurooq as a milestone in the continued digitisation of the UAE at a national level,” said Injazat CEO Khaled Al Melhi.
“Sharjah is also a key market for Injazat as the emirate’s development requirements represent an opportunity for Injazat’s leading-edge services across the public and private sectors. Technology is an essential aspect of any modern economy, enabling rapid widespread growth and development.”
In late 2017, Injazat announced it was teaming up with the UAE Ministry of Interior to deploy a centralised fire alarm system that connects all buildings in the country to speed up emergency responses and limit damage.For all the latest tech news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
