This new agreement builds on our longstanding partnership with Omantel to accelerate technology adoption and empower people and organisations in the country to achieve more.”

Additionally, both entities will partner on the development of ideation workshops with technical and business stakeholders to evaluate technology ideas and proposals and collaborate to deliver technology awareness sessions centered around new Microsoft technologies.
